    Non Carry Guns that you love owning

    I have a couple of non carry guns (unless I go into deep woods or hunting) that I LOVE owning but would feel silly trying to conceal walking down the street.

    Ruger GP100 6 inch barrel and

    Ruger Alaskan .44 mag. (2 1/4 inch barrel)

    Truly, I'd like to carry the later with a shoulder holster but will have to wait for colder weather (and bulky jackets) to pull it off.

    I like shooting my Ruger MKIII's. I have a MKIII Hunter, and just recently purchased an MKIII 22/45 with a threaded barrel as a host for a silencerco sparrow. The sparrow is currently sitting at the local gun shop awaiting the tax stamp.

    I have a number of handguns. Actually relatively few are called to duty for concealed carry use. The rest see use for for target competition, hunting, collecting, or just plain fun. I suppose each and every one has potential for personal self-defense but most handguns on hand aren't seriously considered for that purpose.

    I'm willing to carry handguns as large as 4-inch K-Frame Smith & Wesson revolvers or full-sized 1911s.

    Loads of fun shooting my Mauser Broomhandles but not really great for CCW. TC Contender is fun at the range and for picking off varmints also.

    I love shooting my Ruger P90 but have only carried it a few times. Not that it can't be carried but its a bit too large for me.

    I also love my Ruger MKIII Target model for plinking.

    My two SP101 9mm's don't get carried much but I love firing them at the range.

    Non carry guns I love owning?

    Ruger BlackHawk in .45 Colt
    Browning BuckMark .22LR
    6" S&W686
    6" S&W M17-2
    4" Ruger GP100 which I'm giving to my youngest daughter
    1953 Winchester M70 in .30-06Spr. for freezer filling (got it from my Dad - if I could only keep 1 rifle, this would be it - it shoots holes touching 3 shot groups at 100 yards)
    CZ527 American .223 for varmint hunting
    CZ527 Lux in .22 Hornet for varmint hunting
    Savage LRPV in .22-250 for varmint hunting
    Rebarreled Savage M10 .243 for Coyote hunting
    Savage 112BVSS in 7mmMAG for long range hunting
    Remington 700 in .17Rem for varmint and Coyote hunting

    All the rifles are scoped, I can't see iron sights clearly enough on a rifle any more. The rifle that gets the most use is the CZ .223. It goes ground hog hunting two or three times a week all summer. It has a nice Leupold VX-III 4.5-14x40AO scope on it. My longest kill with it is 254 yards. I have a fantastic load for 40g Nosler Ballistic Tip bullets that shoots into dime sized groups, leaves the muzzle at around 3640 fps and gives me a point blank range out to ~230 yards. This is it:

    My Smith 686 6" barrel was the first non-carry pistol I bought. Man, that pissed my wife off. Not the gun, she loves it. Not being able to pocket it.

    Size or value may preclude carry

    I have a number of handguns that I would not carry, mainly because they are very heavy with long barrels, and may be so valuable that I don't want to mess them up in a holster. Here are a few of them:

    Well, I would pretty much say I love owning all of my guns, even if I don't carry them. I find the question a bit odd being that if you didn't like to own it, and you didn't carry it, why would a person have it?
