I've regretted selling/trading almost every gun I've let go. For some reason, I think this one was a good choice. The semi-auto .22 just does what I want it to so much better.
The M617 is also a premium, high dollar gun, and while I normally am more than OK spending to get the best, the 617 was not getting the attention or love it deserved. A Charter Arms Pathfinder (as recommended to me earlier in the thread), probably would have accomplished the task just as well.
