Would a Remington Rand 1911 A1 all original and in almost unissued condition? A gift from a fellow Marine (my Father). Issued new to an Army Air Corps bomber pilot THE DAY BEFORE HE CAME HOME and he never fired it. Gave it to my father.

If "anything", then a Nuke! Why? For the heck of it.

Would love to own an original WWII vintage BAR just for the history behind it. Another fun one to have would be a Seecamp converted 1911.

Original Luger .45acp or a Sharps Coffee Mill.

I've never been a "show off" so to speak with my friends, family, or my acquaintances that happen to like firearms. Things like that are as personal to me as me and my wife making love and discussing it with someone else. It just doesn't happen. I consider such things sacred. Very few know that I'm tops on the list to take over Uganda with a little help from the drug lords. I'd like to keep it that way. Showing off could be digging your grave one shovel full at a time.

A shiny new stainless steel Taurus Beretta knockoff F-92 9mm? I want one! It don't make no sense but it looks so damned shiny! And it won't rust.

A nickel plated sissy pistol. Why? Why not!
Audie Murphy's M1.
Alvin York's 1911.
Anything owned by John Wayne.
A musket from Lexington, Concord, or Fort Sumter.
Well that's good for a start...

I just want a little single shot rifle. Something that allows me to reach out and touch someone. Like this:

Thompson circa WWII.
A 1911 that fought at Iwo Jima.
or practically - the 9x23 government model Colt - I keep seeing on Gun Broker.

ANYTHING with historical significance and USED in historical battles (M-1 from WWII, blackpowder rifle from the civil war etc)
This would be nice too (WHY? for the hell of it)

I'd like a Cheytac M200.
I don't think I'd want any with historical origins (like a John Wayne owned firearm...) While it would be extremely desirable....my desire to shoot it would lessen it's value.
The .45acp Luger mentioned above would be VERY COOOL....but that is a firearm that last sold for over a MILLION dollars! (it also has a very interesting history)

The best weapon the USMC ever produced . . . an M79 grenade launcher. I carried one as a grenadier in 1968.

I guess of all the cool choices to consider, I'd go with a WWII BAR with plenty of mags. I'm not to up on the newer SAWs, but I can't think of a better weapon to raise hell with than a BAR.

To carry a firearm and not have to use it is a blessing
To not carry a firearm and need one is avoidable and sometimes fatal stupidity
