To All,

I was thinking about this, while re-reading this thread, and my real regret was NOT buying an unopened case of brand new SKS rifles, out of Lybia,  for 60 bucks each from a store that was closing several years ago.
(Truthfully, I like the SKS better than the AK for hunting. = I think of it as a SA .30-30.)

yours, satx

That sounds amazing.

I wish I had the money to buy rifles like that en masse.

Thread Tax: Another thing I sort-of regret purchasing was that C-100 that shed its extractor constantly. However, I got it fixed and sold it and got something else I actually was happy with, so, it wasn't that big a regret -- it didn't drive me up the wall like my Ishapore 2A1 did.

Gilgondorin,

Understood on the Ishapore. = I once bought a beautifully-stocked Model 760 in .308  that I could never get to shoot decently. = 25+ years later, I still don't know why. - Odd, inasmuch as most any Model 760 usually shoots reasonably well.
(I sold it to a guy who thought that he could get it to shoot.- Never saw it or him again.)

These days, I would likely  send it to JES for a re-bore, as Jessie does GREAT work.

yours, satx

I didn't regret buying my Ruger MK3 22/45 until the MK4 came out 2 years later. If I had a do over I would have waited.

My "regret" is in thinking the 5.7X28 was a great defensive caliber and wanting both a pistol and a PDW(PS90) in that caliber.  I WANTED a PS 90 and wound up buying one from a fellow forum member for a price that was perhaps excessive.  He won I didn't.

I had a pistol(FsN 5.7) and built up an AR57.

After shooting the PS90 I didn't like it at all.  The pistol I didn't point naturally and the 57upper is a good shooter but not to my taste.

So I wound up selling the PS90 for a loss and the pistol for a small loss, since I had it accurized by EA.

I am now divesting all my 5.7 stuff; ammo, mags, etc. at a probable loss.

Resist emotion on your purchases.

Well, I did not care much for the Five Seven pistol I once had, but I do like my PS90, and I owned two PS90s a decade ago. All a matter of preference, I suppose
