    Let's hear them. The most recent one I did was a 85% condition S&W 52 for the price of $750. It's rare in all states, let along in California.

    I also regret I didn't get into Browning Hi Power back when we can see them around $400~500 in used market.

    my buddy (no seriously) bought his first handgun last week , he had a choice of a S&W Sigma, Stoeger Cougar, a EAA EZ9, and a CZ polymer i've never seen

    they were all priced well, about the going rate of a Sigma with +30 or +50 differences

    so after trying all of the trigger pulls he went with the EZ9 , i can't say i blamed him , it is his first gun and he liked the SIG-esque style of it but that Stoeger was such a good deal i would have bought one

    Friend had a Glock 19 she was going to sell to me for $300. It was lnib. I wanted to buy it but I would never have heard the end of it from her for giving me a deal. The more I think about the more I wish I would have. She sold it to someone she worked with a week later for $425.

    Passed up on a LC Smith. seller didn't return later calls. It haunted me. I literally had dreams about that gun. 2 years later when I find the guy selling it in a shop, I told the owner I was buying it. Finally was able to sleep.

    HK SP89 for $650 in like new condition with a stack of factory mags just before the 1994 ban.

    S&W 624 with a 4" barrel for $350 about six years ago.

    Our household income is good enough now that I could just pull out the debit card and buy them without hesitation, but that was a lot of money for me back then. I knew they were good deals, but there wasn't anything I could do about it except drool and dream. I've made up for them several times since then, but I can't say I don't think about them from time to time.

    About a year ago, I passed on buying an H&K P7M8 that was mismarked and mispriced as if it were a standard P7.

    $699 for a P7M8.... *sigh*

    If I'd have been single at the time, I'd have done it.

    At a gun show in I believe 1996 or 1997, guy had well used police-trade in "MPDC" Glock 17's with one 10 round mag and very dim night sights for $250-$275 each depending on condition. And he had at least 10 of them. I bought one but I should have bought ALL of them.
