    I think some of us may have had a chance to buy a CRK that they wanted, but you passed on it.

    I wanted a large Web Site in 10'. I found a site, OFK, that thought they had one, they said they'd check and for me to call back the next day.

    I called back, the WS wasn't in the correct box. They had a large Native American that I didn't buy. I didn't know much and didn't like the NA as much as the WS.

    I bought a TNK tanto Zaan instead. I think about not buying the NA sometimes and really wish I had bought it for $454.

    Anyone else have a buyers' remorse experience.

    Edit: I may have started the same thread a few years ago, I'm not sure.

    Missed a few, snagged a few. I dont get too caught up in "missed opportunities" as buying and selling is part of the fun! I do remember missing a Large LDC off of ebay by less than 1 sec(and i know who has it!!!) Lol!

    I'm not really into the graphics. I like to look at them and appreciate the artistry but I've never wanted to own one. Maybe one day? lol

    I do however regret selling my first CRK that I purchased. It was a small 21. I sold it to obtain a large 21.

    Couldn't make a deal on the old pivot 'Zaan w/ the OTS recently on the exchange..trade declined, MO not accepted..more frustration than remorse..

    I never regretted anything I've bought..only sold..I do regret not having PP sometimes....cost me a few deals over the years.

    I saw an Aviator several years ago at a consignment shop for I believe $100, and looked at it and stupidly put it down. I thought about it on my way home and went back to get it but someone had snagged it already:(

    Think twice, cut once.
    I found the misspelling and back to CRK it went.
    I should have bought it instead. ;)
