I probably need to thin the herd, but I have NEVER been happy that I sold a gun.
I've turned over three over the past couple of years and can't say I'll miss any of them. I had an old S&W single stack 9mm that I couldn't find extra mags for, a Glock 26 that I didn't enjoy shooting, and a Beretta compact .45 that I really didn't enjoy shooting. Now I've got the Ruger which is fun and accurate, an H&K, which is one of the top handguns made, and if the need ever arises, I still have my little fridge-killer .38 snub that I can stick in my pocket. Between those and the AR, I think I'll be okay. Shit, I only have two trigger fingers.
