I have a short list:
sig 228, CZ75b, H&K USPc .45, glock 20, star PD.

Name the pistols you can't live without, or would replace immediately if you parted company somehow.

None of mine are irreplaceable. For the right price I could be tempted to sell any of them.

But in the replace immediately category, an HK p7 and a good 1911.

I would never sell my H&K USP 45. Being the first handgun I ever bought, it has too much sentimental value to part with. I also have two others I would never part with, though they're not autoloading handguns. One is my Colt Officer's Model .38 Special(which has a bit of rust and wear, unfortunately) and a beautiful original Remington Model 11, both of which have been in the family longer than I have! (50+ for the Shottie and I think even older for the .38.)

Edit: Forgot to add that the Model 11 has been reblued and had the wood touched up as well.

Yes I know a wierd choice considering I have a 1911A1, a CZ82, etc., but I love that gun. I have two of them, but one is in incredible shape and it is wicked fun to shoot. Also, it is my first C&R and real handgun purchase so it also has sentimental value as well. It is a gun I plan on giving my grandkids.....now I have to work on making my first kid so I can have someone to give it to. :)

I've always said I'll never sell any of my guns. Then I sold my Sig 220ST to get a 1911 that I wanted as I was short on case. I liked the Sig 220ST, but I love the 1911. Now I'm back to saying I'll never sell any of my guns. I guess until another great deal comes around that I'm short on cash for. :uhoh:

For the right price (e.g. if someone offered me 100,000$ per piece), I'd sell any of them.

With that said, those that would require the most thought and $$$ are my Sig P220 ST, Sig P239, Sig P228,Beretta Cheetah, Beretta 92 and Springfield XD 45.

First handgun I ever bought, got it the day I turned 21, I plan to always have it. FWIW, the only problems it has are an extractor with a claw that's too far forward, and it needs a new hammer/sear from a bad trigger job. EGW and C&S parts should make it 100%

My 1962 mfg. 103 series High Standard Tounament. Very accurate & so far it's been 100% reliable.:)

I can never say never, as I've sold many guns I've said I never would...but currently I have a Smith & Wesson 39-2 9mm and a 5903 9mm that I can't see myself parting with.

Every pistol I own is 'not for sale'. Those that I don't shoot regularly are set aside for the kids.

My Colt 1911a1's, my Colt Commander from 1977 and the P08 my father brought home from WWII.

Oh, and the NRA Commemorative Ruger II I found NIB.

Well, don't want to give up that Smith model 10 from the early 70's

My Kimber .45, Springfield .45, and XD40sc are just tools in my box.

My Dad's bring-back P38 may someday be given away but will never be sold.

Sadly, mine is my old 1953 Romanian TT-33.

It's reliable and accurate. I picked it up for cheap, ammo's cheap, but it's such a nifty little gun that I really love. I might get him a little brother in 9mm so I don't have to worry about overpenetration as much.

I only have three handguns and would immediately replace each one if something happened to them.

XD40sc
XD45c
Kimber Eclipse Custom II 10mm


I'd be most upset over the Kimber though since it cost more than the other two combined and is harder to find. But I love all three and have always been happy with them.

I've sold four firearms in my lifetime. Only one was a handgun and that one was an RG-14, which I subsequently replaced.

Now, I've pawned guns and neglected to reclaim them, but that's not quite the same thing. Anyway, they were Ravens, Brycos, Davises, and such.

I've found four lost or stolen guns which I returned to their owners - sometimes to their extreme embarrassment.

I've had half-a-dozen stolen from me.

I've also traded a few, had a number taken by family members and sold, and even given several away.

But actually sell a good, functional handgun?

Not likely!

I won't say that I couldn't live without these and there is no way I could run out and replace them, but these two autos are never leaving my family.

The Colt dates to 1918 and was issued to my Great Grandfather. The Luger doesn't have quite as much family history, but it belonged to my Grandfather.

After today's range visit, I added another to my list of keepers, a Star Mod 30MI, my newly beloved, 9 MM, 15+1 screamer. What a frickin' gun! I'm in love. I think we may move to the city and get an apartment together....

Well, there's only 4 guns TOTAL that I would never sell. For multiple reason. Main reason is because these 4 guns I either bought at an extremely great price that can NEVER be duplicated; or it can't be bought again. That would be:

1) SigSauer P220: 45acp (Normal Carry, all around best gun in the world)
2) Springfield Armory 1911A1: 45acp (Had it 25 years and it's in mint condition)
3) S&W Model 13-1: 357 magnum (I know it's a revolver, but it's a classic) (Built in 1977; classic Military/Police model)
4. FEG AP-MBP: 7.65 32acp (Always loved the Walther PPK type 32acp for pocket carry. Gave Walther to daughter who WON'T GIVE IT BACK. This is next best thing)
