have you ever sold a gun, only to eventually buy the same one again?

Didn't you sell a non working M-16

Just to buy it back a year later and it still didn't work properly?

Quite a few stories going around JOC about guns being sold years ago to people out east, then said guns popping up randomly back in the community.

Same with gear. Know of at least 3 chest rigs that have gone across Canada, had 2-3 owners only to end up back with the original owner here in Calgary or with a teammate.

Pretty much : first gen was a G36K Gen2 from STAR/ARES, sold it, bought a G36K Gen4 ARES, sold again, and back to my first love with a G36K Gen6 from ARES gain... starting to think I'm gonna have every even generation.

I still regret selling my KSC Glock 17... as ugly as that gun was, it had a special charm to it. Debating either waiting for a TM M&P9 or building a TM Glock 17 nowadays.

I think every model I ever had, I bought or am in the process of buying again...

As some said, usually it's simply because cash it too tight to keep playing more than being tired with the gun...

Then again I am about to buy a PSG-1... that will be the second one... and I got tired of the first one... Hell it might even be the same!

Also bought back one of my guns without knowing... then finding some unique mod I did back then and getting all nostalgic...

So far:

TM AUG (bought an other later and sold)
TM Hicapa (just bought a new one)
TM P90 (had 2, 3 times. bought back my original a few years after. Sold them all.)
TM PSG-1 (traded for a TM AK-47... fielded it once and sold... and buying an other, maybe same, next week)
Star G36 (bought an ARES later, and a SRC, a KWA and a CA in between)
Maruzen APS-2 T96 (bought and sold at least 4 clones after, with one still here and for sale)
TM VSR-10 G-Spec (bought 2 clones, sold them and bought a PDI/Fortess M40 and sold it... and bought an other full PDI and sold it)
ICS M4/M16 (bought lots, including a clearsoft and a spare receiver. Also got a KA HK416 and M16)
CYMA M14 Socom (bought one brand new, traded sometime ago and bought an other brand new this summer as backup)

I think the gun I had for longest is my WE SCAR... close to a year now!

I don't think I've never bought back the exact one I've sold...but I've definitely bought the same model over (and over) again and absolutely regret selling some.

Regret Selling
- KA FAL
- AKS74U
- PTW

Most Popular Buy Agains...or doubles/triples that I've had at the same time
- AK's
- 226's
- HiCapa's (had over 8 at one point)
- M4's...don't want to think of how many individual ones I've had...or how many I've had at one time
- PTW's
- 249's...went through a bad spot of buying one for a game and then selling it afterwards
- MP5's
- G36's
- VSR10's/clones
- WA/G&P GBBR
- WE GBBR

Regret never buying (favourite ones I've shot/used/worked on/checked out but never mine)
- KSC HK33(E?)...the pre-cocking one
- KA Thompson
- WE M14
- ARES WA2000

Regret buying
- Hurricane Shrike...what a money pit
- all VSR10 clones...every one a POS

Now...All I've got are:
- PTW (had the longest so far)
- WE M4 GBBR (new)
- WE CQBR (so old...needs to be stripped down and retired)
- G&P Stoner
- KA Galil (about to sell)
- TM G17

Next on the hit list....
- Another PTW or clone to mess around with
- build a SPR/MK12 setup with either a *TW base or a GBBR base
