Buy it new, sell it.
Buy it again used, then buy another one new, sell both!
Buy a used one...
Then buy another used one....

It's a case study in "upgrading" till I got the condition/configuration/vintage I felt worthy of a spot in the safe.

For me its the Beretta 92/96. And, long ago, it was my first.


What's your repeat??

Have had 1911's for many many years. They have come and gone but there is always at least one.
Have had a few Glocks but they are all gone.
Have had a few XDs and still have some.
One of my first firearms was Ruger Mark II. They have come and gone but still have a Mark III (22/45).

Sorry, but that would be pretty retarded. If I don't like it, I sell it. Then I remember why I didn't like it, so I don't buy it again. Too many interesting guns to retard on one I've already dismissed.

Nice M9. What did you not like about the other Berettas? What is it about this one that makes it a keeper?

I too broke the seal with a M9. Almost sold it, but couldn't bring myself to let it go. Glad I didn't.

I've never repurchased a gun I sold, but then again, I've only ever sold one (and regret it purely because I hate selling - not because I loved it).

with out a doubt..1911s...In Rifles its M1 garands and SKS.

During the loophole days of yesteryear, the HK MK23 came and went like the wind...Always liked the idea of having them for "cool factor" but then shook my head as I never used them and barely liked them when I did. Accuracy and history are AWESOME but size and practicality make it a wall hanger at best.

Your opinion however is based on the notion the sale was due to dissatisfaction.

Could the sale have been because of hard times? Maybe you miss that firearm. Once your cash flow goes positive replace that sold gun.

Could the sale have been to finance an even more desired firearm? Buy your true love. Then when money permits, replace that sell off.

Rinse repeat. There are many reasons to sell. Dismay is but one.

YMMV :cheers2:

I repeat nothing, once it's gone it's gone for a reason usually a good one. Should it be repeated it's only because it was a package deal or it was given to me.

Really, no upgrades?
Most all the best stuff in my safe is there as a result of upgrading. I'd never repeat something I didn't like to begin with. I guess I should have made that clear in my original posting.

For example a 4" S&W Model 19:
The first one I had was a dash 5 with the wrong grips and an ugly spot in the bluing. Now it's a dash 3 (P&R) with football targets and a blue cardboard box! UPGRADE

My Series 70 Gold Cup used to be a Springfield Loaded that said Imbel on the dust cover. UPGRADE

And the subject of this thread, the 92fs (not pictured) used to be made in Maryland, full of plastic bits with a billboard warning label on both the slide and the frame. Now, it speaks Italian and is from the early 90's. UPGRADE

None of these upgrades were accomplished from straight trading, so one had to be bought while the other was sold.

UPGRADE

Glock.

1. Glock 19 gen 3
2. Glock 17 gen 3
3. Glock 19 gen 4
4. Glock 17 gen 3 OD green
Now. Glock 19 gen 3

Reason I sold them: they looked ugly when I put them next to my HK's.

Interesting. I buy something and usually keep it and keep myself familiar with it. If I don't like it I only have one. If I like it I get multiple so I can have one for back up if I beat up the other.

Glock 17. I screwed the pooch bad about 5 years ago and sold an RTF2 with the ))))) slide serrations.

I'm on 1911 No. 3. First one was Sig; sold it for some quick cash to cover some unexpected car repairs. Second was a Springer Loaded; traded it away. No. 3 is also a Springer Loaded; this one I'm planning to keep.

I would say 1911's.... Every time I get a newer better one I sell off the one on the bottom of the quality, reliability, finish scale. There's only so much room in the safe.

Glock 23

I sold a gen II and replaced it with a gen III

Smith & Wesson 686

I sold a 4" and replaced it with a 6"

I sold the 6" and am going to eventually replace it with a 4" oops :facepalm:

I've gone through a lot of ARs... Boredom can get quite pricey.

For me it was also a Beretta 92FS. I had one a long time ago, it was my first handgun even though I owned a bunch of rifles. I sold it to buy my second handgun, then years later bought another one. I now own several Beretta pistols, including my favorite, the 92G-SD. Absolutely the best of my Beretta pistols.

Not a handgun, but S&W M&P 15 Sport. Sold it because I seldom went to an outdoor range. Recently bought it back to have an AR before the AW ban.

I bought one then sold it.

Then a few years later I bought another one.

Then about 2 years ago I bought a gen 4, so I sold the gen 3.

My first was a model 66. I sold a 66 no dash 4" because someone broke my laptop and I needed a new one. I bought a 66-3 2.5" years later.

CZ75 - I sold the standard 75b to fund an M&P. I sold the M&P to fund a springfield 9mm loaded. I sold the loaded when I got bored and bought a CZ75 Omega. The omega went to a buddy to fund a Kimber deal I couldn't pass up.

Now I'm trying to replace the CZ and M&P.

I'm a buyer not a seller. Never sold a gun. So far I haven't met a gun I didn't like. Maybe your poll should also ask of those that buy and rebuy over and over, how many times they've been divorced. Just saying.

I usually have that problem with women. Not guns

There's s difference between buying a women and paying her to leave...

Her attorney will remind you....:D

Me. Glocks, 1911s, lever guns, once bought 6 Seecamps,

We all have a learning curve. Being a dimwit I've bought and sold guns
Of the same genre over the years. Some transactions were intentional upgrades.

For example, I love my Gen 4 Glock 17. But I love my Gen 2 (1993) Glock 17
Even more......

Replace "Beretta 92" with "Ex-girlfriend" and this narrative fits my life exactly.

Never sold a gun before, and hope to never start. All my purchases were very well thought and researched, every gun I own is loved and has a specific purpose.

I would only do this if I made money from the sale, then found the a great deal on a new/used on, then made money from selling those, then getting a great deal on another one.

Otherwise, there is so much paperwork and fees involved, I don't bother selling them off. If I don't like it, I'll have it down to my kids one day.

Sold a gen3 19 to buy a gen4 19, that's about as close as I have come so far. I sold my M9A1 and I will probably get a WC 92G somewhere down the line.

EMP. . .bought new with the hopes of ccw in LA County, then came to my senses and sold it for $50 more than I had spent. Of course then came Peruta, and I found another used one for an amazing deal so I bought again. This time I sent it in to the custom shop, and had lots of work done. . .so even though Peruta didn't pan out, I think it is mine for good! Maybe someday it will be a Concealed Casket Weapon.

I have one I don't particularly like.......but it is mine and I'm not going to sell it 'cause you never know....besides, my dad bought it for me.
