    I sold my 995ts!!

    Call it a moment of weakness. Actually it wasn't. I sold it for $240.00.

    I hadn't been shooting it, and I've had my eye on a few other guns. I kept my 4595ts.

    I've been buying and selling a few lately. It's the only way I can get new guns.

    My wife won't let me buy all the guns I would like. Thats probably a good thing. Still

    Gotta pay those pesky bills. Damnit to hell!

    The world just cried for you. Now get in the corner for a time out traitor. :p
     

  3. There's nothing wrong with selling a gun you've lost interest in to afford something new.

    Like you, I can't afford to buy all the guns I'd like so selling frees up funds I can use to try different guns.

    I also relate to letting the 995 go and keeping the 4595 -- I'd probably do the same thing.

    Let us know what you pick up to try next.

    I definitely keep you all posted.

    I've had my eye on the Bersa thunder pro .45 uc. Also the Walther CCP. Maybe a JHP .45 to go with my 4595ts.

    Decisions, decisions...

    If the end results is better than what You had, it wasn't 'stupid'.

    The good news is you kept your 4595.
    Now see if you can score a 1911 clone.

    If you are into 8 shot 9mm pistols with zamac slides why not also consider a Hi Point C9? In any event good luck in your perusal of a new gun!

    *** Update ***

    So this is what I bought with the money from the sale of my 995ts + a little extra.

    A Golden State Arms Corp " Santa Fe Granedier" model R-169 chambered in 30.06 with a Bushnell "Scope Cheif" 4-12 x 40 scope mounted.

    And, a Gabilando y Cia Elgoibar Espana "Llama" .380. This one is the model II manufactured btwn 1933 and 1954. It was missing the magazine which I found on ammoclip.com for $42.00 shipped.

    Took them both to the indoor range today.

    The rifle was awesome! I didn't have to adjust the scope at all. Shot about 5" high at 30 yds, perfect.

    The pistol was pretty flawless as well, although I was only able to hand feed one bullet at a time. It's a little small for my big hand. The hammer was pinching me a bit, but I just love this thing!

    All in all, I am very pleased with them both. Pics to follow...

    Maybe I'll get a monkey gun. I really like the way they look.

    But I don't regret the decision. These two guns are awesome!

    They may not be that desireable, but to me they are very cool.
