    I Think I Have A Good All Around Gun Stable

    TWO Glock 9mm's: G19 and G26(both Gen 3)
    TWO Colt 1911's: A Series 70 Gov't and a 1st year production OM(Series 80)..45ACP,of course"
    ONE Ruger Sp101: 357 magnum a 2.25" version
    Now I could use a quality 22LR....but haven't made the move yet
    I DO MISS my 3" Model 64 Smith in 38Spl(my old pre-Glock duty gun)and my Smith 640 too, but I think I'm well-served with what's in the collection.
    What do you guys have in your main(or in my case entire)handgun stable?

    I like the base model Browning Buckmark Camper for a 22lr. A toss up for me between that and the Ruger Mark III.

    Yep, a .22 auto; I favor the Ruger 'Mark' series for accuracy and durability. I think you also need a lightweight .38 snubby... something in the 15-16 ounce range, that's truly a candidate for pocket carry (I think the SP101 is too heavy and bulky for that role).

    Then if you want to branch out, I'd say you need a Commander-length 1911... and a full-sized Glock, like the 19.

    the little Phoenix HP22A is really fun also if you were thinking more of a mouse-type 22lr. only $150 also.

    My stable is a little more diversified:

    DW 1911 4" Classic Commander Bobtail .45ACP
    Kahr CW45 .45ACP
    CZ75 Compact 9mm
    CZ75 P-01 9mm
    CZ75 P-06 .40 S&W
    Ruger GP100 4" .357
    Ruger Security Six 2.75" .357
    Bersa Thunder 380 .380ACP
    Ruger Mark II Bull Barrel .22

    There are a few others, but they are nightstand guns and safe queens.

    Just in case the gubmint trolls are reading, I won't list them all out. That terrible boating accident pretty much wiped me out. Unfortunately I parted with my 1911 and .22 auto...two holes in mine that need to be re-filled.

    Cool

    I DO MISS my 3" Model 64 Smith in 38Spl(my old pre-Glock duty gun)and my Smith 640 too, but I think I'm well-served with what's in the collection. {QUOTE}

    Old Grunt,

    I am sorry to hear of your "Smith" losses.

    Yes you are well served in your basic inventory however being left without a "Smith" in the family can leave a hole in your heart.

    I would suggest that if you want a .22 you seek out a S&W revolver in .22 LR. A K-22 Combat Masterpiece would be a great addition to fill that "hole".

    I could not be without a couple of "Smiths" in the stable.

    What do you guys have in your main(or in my case entire)handgun stable?
    Very impressive collection, but IMO, You're missing one VERY important gun...a 12 gauge pump action SHOT GUN at the bedside!!!!!!!!

    I have:
    Glock 30SF (subcompact .45 ACP, 10 rounds!) my primary carry gun...surprisingly low recoil!
    Ruger SP101 .357, 2.25' barrel, 5 shot revolver (my BUG)
    The Judge .410/.45 long colt
    Mossberg 500, 12 gauge pump action shot gun...both the shot gun and the judge are always at my bedside!

    Wish list:
    1. Colt 1911, .45 ACP
    2. Beretta 9mm, although I may get a Glock 9mm
    3. Smith and Wesson 642
    4. AR 15, 5.56/.223, 1:8, 30 rounds, chrome lined. I've found someone locally who supposedly builds killer ARs.
    Or, a Smith and Wesson M&P AR 15, 5.56/.223, 1:8, 30 rounds (haven't decided which model. The only problem is that they don't offer chrome lined barrels, so I might go with a CMMG or Bushmaster) Any recommendations would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!
    5. A second shot gun to have near the front door (they're cheap and great to have around)
    6. A second Glock 30SF (I LOVE this gun!!!!)

    Ideally, I'd like to have guns strategically placed throughout the house (I don't have kids, so no worries there)

    I have one of the Maverick over Under HS-12 defensive shotgun loaded with 00 buck and it has a Trijicon red dot on the bbl rail. I was surprised how well this little shotgun handled and shot with fine shot, buck shot, and slugs very effective shotgun and affordable.

    My gun stable as far as pistols go are a Glock 17 for open carry and duty carry, a Glock 19 for every day carry, and a Glock 26 for concealed carry when I need a smaller gun. I also have a Mossberg 590 and am planning on buying an AR15 soon. Then a .22 upper for my Glock and I think I will be good to go.

    Handguns are too dangerous, thankfully when my boat sank the one that I had went down with it.

    I agree, the Ruger Mark is a great weapon, as is the Browning Buckmark...pretty much a toss-up until you go to dis-assemble and clean, then the nod goes to Browning. I think Bill Ruger devised the Mark pistol dis-assembly as a cruel joke... that still isn't funny.
