Blast from the past: The one that got away.
It’s an old post, but it still rings true. In my junior year of college, not long after I turned 21, I bought a Colt Trooper Mk III in .357 Magnum for the princely sum of $250. It was a big, heavy piece of steel, but it had a great double action trigger and was shockingly accurate. I wish to this day that I had never sold it, or at least waited longer before selling it. Looking on Gunbroker, the average going price for a 4 inch blue Trooper in good condition is $500. Apparently, my Trooper was a better investment than gold.
