I swear I have crappy timing sometimes.
Most recent - HK P30L.
CDNN had them for $799 a few months ago. Decent price, we ahead and snagged one.
I'm surfing AIM Surplus today and find them for $549.95.
(The pain is offset a little by the fact when I purchased it, HK was doing the 4 mag giveaway. Can't complain too much about $180 worth of free mags. )
And this wasn't the first time. My first SIG 2022 was $569 out the door. About a month later is when the slashed the price and there were in the $300s everywhere.

This was never a problem for my mother. She would just go back to the store and demand the difference. Nine times out of ten, she got it.
Never look back. "No Regerts," dude.
If I have noticed a traditional "sale" price, then yea, perhaps my timing could have been better but I got what I wanted when I wanted it.
On the other hand I have sometimes added extra of things I like knowing I can sell them off later with less risk than the stock market, or so I thought. What I do dislike is a company which prices the firearms well above what they sell for a few years later. Anyone remember Sig 556s? I think the OPs example of HK pistols is also like this, with regular current prices $150 or more below what they were for most of a decade.

Well I think everyone here knows what you need to do. Buy another one and your average cost per gun drops.
A couple SIGs and a few others

For me it has been the firearms promotional offers. Twice now I have purchased new Sig pistols only to find out that if I had waited an extra week I could have gotten free magazines and a soft case.
Laughing in the face of danger is all well and good until danger laughs back.
Same here. I even missed the P239 magazine sale because when I first checked they weren't marked down yet. Somehow I missed it when they went down to really cheap.
When I went back to the Sig page they were sold out...
That was my first thought. There is a name for this that I don't recall, but my wife uses it like a club. Woe to any store that doesn't promptly refund her the difference.

YES it has happened to me more than once.
See if your credit card that you bought it with has a price protection or price matching thing. Otherwise don't look back.

I try to avoid that mindset. Are you happy with your purchase? If so, forget about it.

Can you tell me when you buy your next gun? Thank you in advance.
