Do you have guns you just WANT to love, keep buying, but then are among the first you sell to buy something else?

For me that is the Beretta 92 series. I must have owned 4-5 of them, and just traded into a M9A3. I really like the Vertec grip. It sure shoots well!

Beretta 92’s and CZ 75’s. I want to like them, I just don’t shoot them as well as other guns.

HK VP9. I try to like it, and I truly respect the platform, but it doesn’t fit any role for me.

For me it's the Kahr MK9/Elite 03. I love that gun and I've probably owned 5 of them. I just can't find a way to EDC it over the many other good sub/subcompact choices.

Sig P220, G19....
I've had 5 220s over the years, just can't warm up to them. Must have bought and sold, traded, 10 G19s, currently have one in my dresser drawer.

I'm currently trying to unload my second HK45C. It's super accurate and reliable but it just doesn't do it for me. Hopefully I remember this when I go to purchase another one in a few years!

The Sig 239 and 226. I have bought and sold several of them now. I like them, I want to love them, but I just don't.

Then a year goes by and I see a deal on one and think, hmm, maybe I should try one again. Rinse and repeat...

Anything in .40 S&W. It's a running joke at my local shop. "Every year, bionic will buy something in .40 to remind himself why he hates .40"

Closest has been the gen 4 Glocks. I think three different 23s and two 27s. Very good, but not as fast or accurate in my hand as a 19 or a 26.

Beretta PX4C was probably a mistake I'd make again.

For me it was slightly different. When I found a pistol I liked, I bought two or three of them in different variations/ calibers. When something "better" came along I would sell those and get several of the newest, "best" pistols. After a few more years, the cycle repeated itself.

I have done this with the P229, 239, 224 and 290. All in the search of my ultimate carry pistol.

I have not sold any of my classic all stainless 229s or my 229 duty pistol. I shoot them occasionally and still enjoy them. These I am going to pass along to my kids.

S&W 10mm pistols. I kept buying and selling them, now I can't afford them.

SIG P232. I've only owned it once and still have it. But I shot one and the P230 several times prior and really didn't like very much how either shot. Then I come across one in really nice condition...oh, it's so purdy; I can make it work. Yes I can.

And that's all she wrote.

To date it's the only frickin' disappointing gun that I've caved to. Still don't like shooting it. But it IS a beauty.

S&W 642/442, no lock. Had 1 of each, sold\traded, now on my 3rd (442 no lock). Keeping this one as the no lock versions are becoming fewer and far between.

P226. Never fit really well. The front strap has always been a little slick shooting DA. The Legion SAO may be the ticket however. The single action flat trigger along with the small undercut and the legion grips make a more stable platform for me.

As soon as I liquidate some real estate I’m getting one.

TCB all the time...

1911's. I've had 7 of them over the years. I get one, love it at first, get annoyed with it, sell it or trade it for something else I want, then I miss having a 1911 and buy one to replace it. The cycle then begins anew.

Now I keep one just to keep the itch scratched. It's a Sig 1911 TACOPS. I wish I'd gotten the traditional slide model but everybody is making holsters for Sig 1911s these days. And I really do like this 1911 and it's one of the few I've owned that doesn't seem to care what type of ammo I feed it - runs like the Energizer Bunny.

Non-German military Mauser 98 rifles.

I have a number of German K98k Mausers, which is one of the main focuses of my military surplus rifle collection, along with British Enfields and WW1/WW2 USGI rifles. But I also keep buying various other cool milsurp Mausers from other countries (Czech, Turk, Yugo, Belgian, etc.). They're neat, and comparatively affordable, but I rarely keep them for all that long. They're among the first to go when something more interesting and more relevant to my collection comes along.

Luckily, I have yet to lose money doing so.

S&W model 625's. I love the 45 ACP moon clip revolver idea then when I get one, I remember they are the bigger & heavier N frame & I sell it soon after. Had far!

I thought I was alone in doing this. But I see not so.

I bought a couple of M&P-9's, installed Apex triggers, etc., but never could get them to be as accurate as other pistols I own. I stopped doing this around 2012, although that was when they switched over to the 1:10 twist rate barrel and apparently solved most of the inaccuracy issues. (I've read posts where people say they had nary a problem with accuracy, but I did).

The M&P remains a very reliable and ergonomic pistol, and S&W has earned my loyalty over the years with their customer service. But I have no full-size M&P's these days...

But now of course there is the M&P-9 2.0. So I am tempted again.
