Sistema 1927 or a blued BHP in 9mm.

Last Sistema I saw for sale was at Cabela's, significant rust on the slide with pitting, priced at $999, too high for what it was. BHP's, last one I saw was in .40 and brushed nickel. IF it was blued or in 9mm it would have come home with me. But the way it was, I just could not warm up to it enough, not even to have the store take it out of the cabinet for me.

I concur... 93 R would be right nice . So would a HK MP7. I shot an HK. an Uzi, and a Glock 18 ... all full auto or on 3 burst . ( promotional)Full auto rental at my indoor club's range.

Anything by Wilson Combat, Nighthawk Custom, Ed Brown, or Les Baer...it's just too much $$ to sink on a pistol - at least for a mere mortal like me.

A stainless Desert Eagle in .50 AE.

Thinking more broadly beyond just handguns - Thompson SMG. Even thinking about this I can hear my bank account empty from all the .45 ACP ammo I’d go through.

I’m gonna be a little bit of a gun heretic here. I’ve shot several Thompson’s and beyond the history and intrinsic cool factor I don’t like em.

Heavy as hell for what they are, weird recoil impulse, rate of fire far too fast on the early ones and just a little clunky. I mean I am a gun guy and totally appreciate the Thompson but the practical shooter in me......ehhh it’s kinda not that great. Give me a Garand or MP40 instead.

Bring on the pitchforks and torches!!! Smile

A Browning Hi Power 9mm.

It's quite likely my favorite handgun ever, with all it's lore and history, but I can't keep my support hand off of the slide stop. When I shoot a BHP, I always lock the slide open in mid-magazine. I'm not going to curl my thumbs down after so many years of thumb straight, so, I'll never own one again but I love it.

Glock 7.

I'll probably never own one because they are really rare.

A matched set of nickle plated break top, 10 mm single shot dueling pistols w/ white grips.

they would have 5 1/4 inch barrels,
bi color sights, single action.

In a finely crafted quarter sawn oak ,presentation box, w/ a green velvet lining.

The interior lid would hold 12) 180 gr. Jacketed Hollow Point cartridges from Buffalo Bore.

I would have a lid operated switch for a music box, It would play "closer walk with thee " when you open it.

the barrels would be sculpted to look like 1 1/4 inch hemp rope.

The grips would have hummingbirds on them with scrimshaw.





Safety, Situational Awareness and proficiency.



Neck Ties, Hats and ammo brass, Never ,ever touch'em w/o asking first

Agree.
Also on this subject for me: the missing .45 acp Luger prototype, and a very old but minty set of dueling pistols.
