Selling the FIRST handgun you ever bought.

My dad sold his Smith and Wesson Model 19 snub nosed revolver.

My first pistol that I purchased with my own money was a Glock 22 with Night Sights....and then I sold it roughly 4 years ago....

I've regretted it ever since.

Anyone else have the specific model of the first gun you ever bought and sold like a dummy

Lets here it...maybe I will feel better

P.S. The first handgun my dad ever bought for ME was a Sig 228 (made in W. Germany). He still has it....but it's locked in his gun safe in Ohio..

As he puts it "The first gun I ever bought you is 2,000 miles away from you...maybe that will prevent you from selling it".

In all honesty though, I will never sell that gun because when my dad passes on so will the gun to my son...or daughter.

Havent sold it.

Its not the prettiest or the most accurate, but I can't sell it. Fucking money pit

Ruger single six flattop in 22 magnum. I swapped it for a beat to hell blackhawk in .357 mag. I recently found a duplicate on the EE though and have it in my safe right now

Still looking for a color case hardened frame Colt buntline 22 convertible like the one stolen from my mother before she passed away. It was the first firearm I ever fired.

What kind of gun?
Link Posted: 10/19/2006 10:16:43 PM EST
Lorcin .380. Thr pawn shop gave me $60 which was $60 more than I expected. Never regreted selling it. I wish I had my S&W 457 still though that was my second hangun.

Ruger P89DC, nope never sold it. I let my brother keep it for a few years, then he gave it back. Now it is sitting in my safe and hasn't been fired in years. Hey that gives me something to do when I get back.

1944 Remington Rand. Bought it for $300


Still got it. Isn't going anywhere

Taken with my WWI Repro

Sig 229 - sold it to my dad, so I may get it back. He did give me an old Colt 1911 two years prior to buying the Sig.

I visited him this past summer and got to wear it for a while.. ahh the memories!
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 12:10:38 AM EST

Don't really miss it, I have an issued one now.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 2:15:16 AM EST

I missed it for about 10 seconds before I remembered it was a piece of shit.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 2:28:49 AM EST
I don't miss it a bit.

I do miss the rifles I've sold - every last one of them.

It sucks when you have to pay the bills.

Link Posted: 10/20/2006 3:01:08 AM EST
Nope. [POS] Helwan [/POS] is still in the safe. If nothing more than as a reminder of "you get what you pay for" Still fires, still works, but just so poor of a firearm I'm ashamed to take it out anymore.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 4:15:18 AM EST
Nope, don't regret it at all.

The first handgun I ever bought was a Ruger P95. I bought it brand new for $299 OTD. I didn't do a thing to it other than shoot it (about 4,000 rounds) and clean it, for two years. Then I sold it for $375 to a friend that wanted it.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 4:17:39 AM EST
P95D. Will never sell it. Sold my first rifle though. I kinda miss the Ishy and it makes me want another major caliber bolt gun but I can't afford another caliber. Stupid bills.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 4:34:59 AM EST
1st that I bought for myself was a S&W 5906 (I think) P-O-S. It was a police trade-in and supposed to be the "cat's ass" at the time. It took me about 3 months to realize I'd made a mistake, and I traded it for a new IMI Baby Eagle in .40 and still have it. The BE is on of the three I shoot best, and I'd have to be facing some tough times to ever sell it. While it's not my favorite, I'm still keeping it.

P89DC, traded in for a 92FS....don't regret it a bit.

Regret buying this? Sell it?

You must be joking.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 5:17:20 AM EST
I have a strange attachment to my stuff. I've never sold anything. I just hoard and add, never reduce.

I have friends that buy and sell at such a pace, I NEVER know what they have... not me. Shit, I still have the cardboard box the plastic case came in for my Colt 1991a1 which was my first pistol. Bought it on my 21st Birthday; bought a pistol before I bought my first beer.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 5:18:59 AM EST
Ruger P95. Will never sell it. I was 16 and I worked at a gun store. The owner called my dad to make sure it was ok. 289.00 out the door. One of my favorites to this day.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 5:56:22 AM EST
My first was a Hi-Point 9mm. I traded it plus $40 for a gently used stainless 10/22. Good deal for me.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 11:09:21 AM EST
Sold my Ruger P-89. It was like trying to handle a 2X4.
Bought a Browning HP and have never looked back.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 11:44:13 AM EST
No Regrets! it was a S&W "Enhanced" Sigma Series in 9mm... Enough said.

Link Posted: 10/20/2006 12:16:42 PM EST
Nope! Never will.

It was 1989, I was 12 years old, and I'd spent all summer mowing lawns to save up for a pistol. At the ed of the season, my father took me to the gun store and I picked out a S&W K22 with a 6" barrel.

I really wanted a .357, but my dad wasn't having any of that. I still remember trying to convince him I'd only shoot .38 special, and that the ballistics of a .38 special weren't all that different from .22lr; he didn't go for it.

Has been a great target pistol over the years, responsible for the death of many a furry critter.

I was glad to be rid of my hipoint 9mm.but I will keep the first rifle I bought till the day I die.

Missing a "Haven't sold it yet." choice in your poll.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 1:03:00 PM EST
Yep. Centennial Ruger Single Six. Sold to my Dad for what I paid for it. We don't sell guns, but the family trades them yearly.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 1:04:26 PM EST

Yes , a 1911 Essex clone of a GI Colt , only had it a few monthes though.
Trade guns back when I was young and foolish.

After 32 years I think I'm over it though.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 1:40:21 PM EST
Beretta 92FS Vertec, sold it last winter. It was a nice pistol, but I don't really miss it. Used the money from the sale to buy a Sig 229, which IMO is 2 times the pistol. The chances of me selling the 229 are very, very low....
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 3:10:20 PM EST
Nah, It was an early Auto-Ordnace 1911 POS...Of course if I still had it there's a good chance I could get her working better...the one I do miss is the Old Gunsite 45 built by Richard "Kit" Carson...Damn I could kick myself!
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 4:48:55 PM EST
After years of shooting the Blackhawk 357 my dad gave me, I bought my Redhawk 44 on or about my 21st birthday. That was a score and five back...

Still have both. Alway will.

My 1st handgun was a S&W Sigma was glad to sell it
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 5:12:03 PM EST
Still trying to sell it.

A Jennings/Bryco Arms 9mm...

Wanna buy it?

Yours for $100.00, free shipping.

Link Posted: 10/20/2006 5:44:45 PM EST
My first handgun was a 1960's era Browning Hi-Power. I picked it up for ~$300 LNIB.
I sold it about a year later because even though the grip fit me like it was made for me, the damn hammer bite was horrendous. Back then I didn't know much about firearms, and didn't know that the hammer bite problem is actually a pretty simple fix.
I'd like to get another one, but the prices seem so out of reach for me right now.

I was glad to get rid of my first rifle. It was some cheap semi-auto jam-o-matic .22. I can't even remember what model it was. I got rid of it and immediately purchased a 10/22. The 10/22 I still have, and I consider it my first good rifle.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 8:11:34 PM EST
Same here - Glock 22 w/night sights. More so a rarely used (~100rds in 3 yrs) Colt LE6920 (older style with SAFE/SEMI markings). Both to pay bills.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 8:31:04 PM EST
Glock 19. I will try my best to never sell it. Don't really have a reason to though, reliable as all get out.
Link Posted: 10/20/2006 8:34:01 PM EST
Glock 36

Just sold it the other day on the EE for $375 plus shipping. It went in less than an hour. Maybe I should have sold it for more.

Anywho...no regrets. I'm getting a new toy to replace it with.

Beretta 92FS

I love it and will never sell it.
Link Posted: 10/21/2006 7:40:13 AM EST
Mine was an early S&W Model 13. I shot the living snot out of it, then sold it... been kicking myself ever since
Link Posted: 10/21/2006 7:46:16 AM EST
My first was my Grandpa's duty K frame. I won't sell it.
The first I ever bought was a Kimber Custom. Still have it, won't sell it.
My first rifle was a mini-14, sold it, don't regret it a bit. It funded my first AR :)
Link Posted: 10/21/2006 9:11:56 AM EST
My dad bought my brother himself and me Ruger P89 9mm when we went away for college. I was tempted twice to sell it off but its got some sentimental value now. Plus the thing has never once jammed on me with over 3000+ rounds through it. The thing is a freakin beast and it will be passed on to my son (when i have one).
Link Posted: 10/21/2006 10:27:28 AM EST
Colt government series 80 stainless. I bought it used. Modded it slightly and shot the snot out of it for years.

I sold it as things started to loosen up. I put the original parts back in before selling it. It was more reliable and accurate than my current Kimber with the lame scratchy trigger. The frame cuts in the Colt were much smoother than the gritty Kimber.

I miss the gun but I think it was it's time.

Link Posted: 10/21/2006 10:31:00 AM EST
A Beretta 92FS bought to celebrate my 21st Birthday in 1994 - I still own it, and it is still the handgun I shoot the most.

I've only really ever sold one gun, and I traded in a Universal M1 Carbine toward the real thing.
Link Posted: 10/21/2006 4:04:27 PM EST
Ruger P94 DAO...sold it for what I paid for it. I thought it looked cool and it felt comfortable, but I could not hit the broadside of a barn from the inside with that damn 13# Ruger double action trigger.

My first girlfriend was a bad lay, but I have fond memories of her too.

roy d....don't regret getting rid of the gun or the girl
Link Posted: 10/21/2006 4:32:46 PM EST
1st rifle yes, Inland M1 Carbine.
not my first pistol. Bernardelli

Full size HK USP when they first hit the commercial scene in '94 was my first purchase. It won't leave my possesion till it's time to bequeath it to one of my sons.

I totally regret selling my Anschutz Super Match that I used during my high school years.

Link Posted: 10/22/2006 10:35:05 PM EST
So Here's the next question....SHOULD I BUY ANOTHER Glock 22 to replace the original????
Link Posted: 10/22/2006 10:50:14 PM EST
Glock 21. Sold it to Dad, he loaned it to me and it rides in my truck.
