No spending regrets... Selling regrets on the other hand... Quite a few of those.

I bought one of the first M14 (Tim Chan model IIRC from Airsoft Club)

that was the worst purchase ever.. expecially after the MOSFET died after 200 bb's, and had Marcus (a former gun-tech from wolf armouries) decide to loose a couple of pieces that _could not_ be replaced..

that and my radio... Dragonred seriously needs a beating after it gets back from them fixed

My only airsoft spending regret is that someone else spent their money on my TM 1911a1. I should never have sold that pistol.

I'm pretty sure it's the perfect pistol. At least as long as its about 14 above.

really no regrets.. even on the cheap crap... my only regret is taking this long to finally realize that I'm a pistol man at heart. I've been lucky enough to stay relatively square with my gun purchases and sales... my gear on the other hand.. LOL

The biggest regret was buying a Custom TM AK-47....the thing broke down every 1000 rounds... I repaired it 3 times by a very good gun doc and it cost me about 200 bucks...I ended up selling it for 750 which was much less than what I originally paid for it...

The previous owner was the 3rd owner and didnt tell me that. I was really new to airsoft at this time and the guy ripped me off big time.

Other than that I am very happy with my purchases, especially my RS and CA...great buys. Now that I have had a little bit of experience I have been able to find some better deals

Bought a G&G GR16, upgraded it a bit, and bought a Trijicon Replica for it. Haven't gamed it once. But it sure is pretty.

See, I was pretty close.

If my wife really knew what I spent, they would never find my remains. But, to put it in perspective, when I sold all my guns and gear, I deposited in excess of $10K in the bank, and set it aside for a holiday trailer. My wife was shocked, especially when she realized that I sold it for less than I paid.

I never did by a trailer. Got some nice new guns though. Not airsoft.
