  • Must haves for your personal collection

    This can be based on any factor, coolness, historical, uniqness, functionality, anything. What firearms or types of firearms do you consider "must haves" for a complete collection. This is assuming that money was not an issue. Aside from practical self defense issues I'd like to have the following (this list is always subject to expansion):

    1911 .45, historical and coolness factors
    30-30 lever action, same reasons
    Anything in .22 LR, just for fun
    12 guage pump, intimidation factor
    Ruger .44 revolver, not an Automag, Dirty Harry factor

    Not must haves, but would very much like to haves:

    Desert Eagle .50, don't particularly like anything about this pistol but the cool factor is off the chart.
    Would love to have an HK submachine gun, PDW and/or UMP-45, MP-5 SD would be nice too
    Any of the Barret .50 rifles

    Most firearms have a place on my wouldn't mind having list but these are a few that I would like to have more than most. Any others?

    ADD:
    4" adjustable sight .357 - the single most versitle handgun
    Thompson Submachinegun - defines "cool"
    BAR (Not the sporting gun, the WW2 model 1918A2)
    A belt fed like the 1919A4

    Takes care of anything from CQB to wayyyy out there.

      When I get some money ahead I want to start collecting WWII sniper rifles. The Springfield (both bolt action and the Garand),Moisin-Nagant,K98 Mauser,Lee Enfield,you name it and I want it. The only bad thing is to find them in excellent condition,I'll pay out the ying yang for them. But they are so cool.

        I want the following...for various reasons:

        * Remington 1903-A3(I prefer its weight and balance over the M1 Garand)
        * Winchester mfg M1 Carbine(had one...once. :sad: )
        * ANY mfg 1911 in 9MM.(I don't reload any more, so....)
        * S&W M25, Model of 1989, in .45LC.

          (penciling in Thompson w/ drum) A BAR would be nice to. So would an M1 for that matter. I knew there'd be few I'd have to add.

          I volunteer at a national cemetery where we do funeral services for vets and we use Springfield 1903's. Nice weapons even though some of the ones we are using are 60-70 years old they are still in pretty good shape. The extractors are getting worn on some of them but after 40,000 rounds in the last 24 years, and who knows how many before that I'm not complaining.

            When you embark on this collection, spend a good amount of time researching what you're looking for. As far as the A3-03 sniper rifles, there are fakes everywhere. Caveat Emptor. I spent nearly 3 years looking before finding a nice authentic original (Korean Conflict era)

            These old rifles are VERY addictive...

              I'm fortunate in having most of what I want now, but I still want the following:

              A Smith & Wesson Model 3 American, or First Model Russian (.44 American or .44 Russian)

              A Smith & Wesson Triple Lock in .44 Special

              A Webley-Greene revolver in .455

              An 1894 Winchester in .30-30, but VERY early, and showing character (use).

              I'm actually going to do a little calling around on the 1894 Winchester today.
