    5 guns you don't own but wish you did

    Okay, here's a 'just for fun' thread. 5, and only 5, guns you don't currently own but wish you did. My list is going to seem pretty pedestrian as many of them are bread and butter staples for a lot of you. That and I'm not really into a lot of super exotic guns.

    1) A full size 1911 with wood grips and a mirror polished slide.
    -Because they are gorgeous and who doesn't love a 1911?

    2) A shorter (not snubbie) barreled .357 Magnum. Likely a Smith & Wesson Model 19. Nice and shiny, too. I love the Model 19.
    -Something that begins to get into the realm of 'bear repellent' when hiking, but isn't too unwieldy. Can also be a carry weapon when traveling on my motorcycle and I can easily conceal under a vest or jacket.

    3) An AR-15 (yikes, I don't have one! A sin around these parts I know!)
    -Because it's an AR-15

    4) Some sort of .22 pistol for plinking. Walther P22, Bersa Thunder .22
    -Because I love shooting handguns but it gets pricey!

    5) Berretta CX4 9mm Carbine
    -I would love a Carbine with a bit of a punch to it. And 9mm is affordable to shoot! (and, okay... it looks sweet)

    How about you all?

    I'll chime in quickly because dollars to donuts I'll change my mind as this thread gets going.

    1). Beretta 92 DAO Made in Italy
    2). Beretta 9mm Carbine (same as you, romans)
    3). S&W 617 6" 10-shot .22lr Target revolver
    4). Taurus View
    5). Beretta .22lr Bobcat

    The S&W and the Taurus are on the have-to-have list.

    I am lucky that I have bought a lot of guns over the last 43 years and my bucket list included a lot of guns that I did not like after I owned them. The Browning HiPower is such a gun. I bought the Practical model with a chrome slide. A real beauty that gave me hammer bite despite putting the smallest hammer they sell on it. A lot of 1911s also went through my hands. I love them but hate to disassemble them ever since getting arthritis and nerve damage in my hands.

    I love the Colt Defender so much that I bought three of them. None of them were reliable enough to carry so I got rid of them. I had a real Colt SAA that looked good but I found the trigger guard to be too small for my fat fingers and the grips not suited to my mitts. One of the finest guns that I owned was a Sig X5 with a 2.5 lb. trigger. A SAO beauty that made it easy to look like a great shooter. Did not like the light trigger since I do not have full feeling in my fingers. I need some resistance to feel the trigger well. I can go on and on and talk about the guns I sold before their custom holsters or carry ammo arrived. 40+ of them passed through my hands just in the last 4 years and I have been buying guns for over 40 years. So I already bought all the guns I ever wanted, sold them and then wanted more and sold them and then wanted more and ...... Well, you get the picture. These are the ones that I kept and will never sell just like the other never sell guns that I used to own. It is a sickness. I just bought two new guns last week and I do not even have room in my safe for them. :)

    Sig M11-A1
    HK P2000SK
    HK USP 9mm
    S&W 340PD Scandium
    FN FX45

    The 340PD and Sig P938 get carried the most. the HK P2000K is my traveling out of my retirement community gun. The Sig is my going to the big city gun. The FN FX45 is my main home defense gun. 15 +1 rounds of .45 goodness.
