Does anyone else have a gun wish list? I actually have mine on the computer and my wife laughs at me for it but I told her I am making it easy on her, if she wants to buy me a gift just pick one! lol I know it's kind of nerdy but I am a pretty organized guy and having a list just makes sense to me.

I want most all of them, so it would really just be a ranking for my wife's convenience.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
A full-auto HK33 in .308; a Kriss Vector SMG in .45ACP; an STI VIP 1911 in .45ACP, along with a few hundred acres of property for my own private, personal range and an unlimited supply of ammo. That would just about do.
I think just about everyone on this forum has a wish list.
Mine isn't all too extravagant but some day I do want a 1911 and a Luger for collectable safe queens.

My mental wishlist is updated about ever time I get on this site, so it's mildly hard to keep track of. It also get's updated and changed every time I walk into a gun store.

I'm not greedy. All I want is my Glock 23 back from my son. He can keep the Glock 21. I gave them to him before we had concealed carry in WI & am not cheap enough to ask for it back, lol. Now I'm carrying a S&W Sigma .40 cal Glock clone. All I could/can afford. I know the G21 is going to be his off-duty weapon when he swears into the PD next January & unfortunately the G23 is going to his wife (as of next week Saturday) for her carry weapon when she gets her CCL soon.

There are about 20 entries on my wish list which are actually within reach in my lifetime. I left off the Holland & Holland double rifles, Blaser bolt guns and Krieghoff shotguns since I know I'd never be able to afford them!
Most of the guns on my wish list are not "working guns," but rather guns which I'd like to own for the sake of enjoyment and pride of ownership. Like a Merkel side-by-side 28 gauge, or a high-grade Winchester 9422, a clean Savage 99 in .22-3000, a US Firearms Single Action finished by Doug Turnbull, a Colt Diamondback or two, some S&W N frames... you get the idea.

Although lately I've been more interested in - more ammo, more trigger time and qaulity upgrades and accesories for the guns I do have. These seem to be alot more in reach too.
The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.
A 50 BMG. Foolish yes, but very desirable.

A number of different classic Winchester, Remington, U.S. military, British military, World War II Axis, Colt and Smith & Wesson arms would be welcome here.
