    The "coolness" factor

    Ok, I havent been here that long, but I've been here long enough to know that the "what if" and "what would you buy" threads have been beat to death. But we've got a lot of new members, and I'm bored, so humor me.

    Is there anything you would buy just to show off to your gun owning friends? I mean anything, from the Duke's actual six gun he used in True Grit all the way to a working M134. Assuming it was legal to own anything and money was no object of course. You know, something just to say you had one, and why would you want it?

    Me personally, I'd keep it simple. Probably just a Masterkey equipped M4A1. A nice working combination of medium and short range firepower in one convenient (albeit kind of heavy) package. I don't know what it is about an under-barrel shotgun on an AR, but ever since the time I saw one in the movie Predator when I was a kid, I've just always wanted one.

    So what about the rest of you?

    Probably a couple of Javelins, or a stinger...maybe a 60mm mortar.

    Got one. And no, I didnt pay what its worth.

    Happened on it very much by accident, and it is hidden away under lock and key. No, its not out my home, and no, you may not shoot it. I've paid more to protect it than I did for the gun. I've been contacted by a few organizations asking me to donate it, and museums asking me to loan it. I've thought about the museum thing, but I'm not so sure about that.

    Other than that, I'd take about anything with historical significance.

    A custom handgun, that I would never shoot, but I saw once in a movie.
    A 3 shot 10gauge revolver.
    Either that or a STI 45super 2011.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    I'll take what Retsupp99 doesn't take in this room, there is certainly enough to share.

    I received those same pictures in three e-mails, one claimed it was Bill Ruger's estate sale, one claimed it Tom Selleck's basement and one said it was some dentists house.

    Even though it will be a while before I buy my first .45, I've always liked the custom 1911 carried by Don Johnson in Nash Bridges.



    And who wouldn't like to get their mitts on Gov. Jesse's minigun?


    And absolutely ANYTHING that goes bang and makes this guy yell "OohRah!"

    Johnson's pistol was actually a Super .38ACP, built for him by Mac's .45 Shop in Seal Beach, CA.
