For me it’s the Smith And Wesson .500 magnum in any form.
It’s a WICKED fun/caliber combo but between the cost, recoil, sound and flash it’s just too much for me. I would love running a cylinder through a buddies gun. It I would have NO DESIRE to own and stock for.
a buddy of mine has (or had) one ... he calls it "The Fecolator" Because it should make you dump a load of Feces in your britches if its ever pointed at you
It was fun to shoot once. I don't have any desire to own one either.
If you really want something you'll find a way ... ... if you don't you'll find an excuse.
I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either
I would like a Volkmann Precision Signature Series or Combat Carry Series 1911 in .45. I'll probably never own one, for the very practical reason that I can't see paying that much money for the pure pleasure of looking at it.

I finally bought my dream SIQ. It is the P-220 Hunter 10MM. I own 8 10MM handguns. I had some 10MM 180 grs reloads that was too much for the 7 10MM handguns. I did not want to pull all of the bullets. The SIQ P-220 hunter fired all of these over loads with out a problem.
I've always like the look and the idea of a stainless snubbie .44 Mag since I saw it pop up in Beverly Hills Cop and The Hitcher, and later Leon: The Professional, but I have absolutely no need for one of those at all. It would be a waste of cash.

My brother had a German PPKS and I had an American PPKS both guns went back to Walther many times and could never be trusted to feed. Mine went back 3 times and then I gave up on it. A DEA agent bought it from me with me doing everything that I could to talk him out of it. He sent it back to Walther twice and then to a custom gunsmith that got it most of the way worked out
