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. :wink:

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.

These two would keep me happy for quite awhile.

A Singer Sewer 1911.
Got one. And no, I didnt pay what its worth.:embarassed:

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.

Okay.. when can we set up a time for me to come and drool over it? I promise to clean it afterward. :image035:

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.

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!" :comeandgetsome:

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

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.

I don't think I could have anything better!

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

Or, Bert's big gun from Tremor's II: (let's just include his whole truck...)

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.

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. My 2¢
