2. Volunteer rifle
3. sig 550/551

The Walther P88 & P5. Also the PP series including the PP Super.
Steel framed P.38 would be included too, but that was discontinued in '46 when they ran out of frames left over from WWII.
I also miss the importation of 100% German made SIG-Sauer P series pistols that are triple roll marked with proofs.

Most of the guns I admire and use were made or at least designed prior to World War II.

1981 Ruger Security Six, blued, 6" barrel. The GP 100's just don't have that level of fit & finish...

More sentimental than any other reason but a Colt Frontier Scout 22 revolver.

Had an H&R 922 a few years back, with 4" barrel. S/N suggested it was made in 1947. It was a kick in the pants to shoot! I miss the old gal!

I still have a Sig P230 in my carry rotation from that time I purchased new. It is stamped as made in West Germany with proof marks. It is the blued version with the aluminum frame in .380 cal. and 3.75 in. barrel. It feeds anything and Sig website says plus P is OK. I updated with Hogue rubber grips with finger grooves and carry IWB using a High Noon Public Secret and a Beltman belt. My most frequently used EDC is the SR9c.

Browning Model 1918 BAR. I'm not a purist, though - a Carl Gustav, FN-D, they're all good.

Still have a thing for the Ruger Six Series guns. Have both a Speed and Security Six in 2 3/4" barrel. Want a 4" model Security Six at some point.
