Guns that make you drool


July 6, 2003, 10:32 AM
What guns make you drool like a 15 month old baby? Have you been lucky enough to own any of these? Have you just fondled them, or are you still just dreaming oveer pics on the net and print rags?

Went to a machine gun shoot near Madisonville, TX. over the weekend. I didn't shoot them but did get to fondle my 3 favorites. BAR, M3 grease gun, and MP-5SD. It was a fun packed day. The drool factor was high. More toys than I had ever dreamed about. If you have never been to a machine gun shoot, I highly recommend finding one and going.

My list of drool guns is extensive. Currently near the top of the list is, in no particular order:S&W 500 Magnum, Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter, STI Executive, Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special, Desert Eagle, Colt Python. Except the 500Mag, I have had a chance to fondle all of these and shoot a couple of them. (Les Baer and Desert Eagle). Two other guns that were on my drool list that I now own; Beretta Billinnium and Kimber Eclipse Target II. I still get weak in the knees when I see the Beretta. It is beautiful and a real pleasure to shoot. That one was absolutely at the top of my list. :D

Some kind of AR carbine

Walther GSP

I guess currently its a Caspian built 1911 in 9x23.

As a rule -I like simple, classic, blue and wood. I respect craftmanship, machine fitted parts. Form follows function.

July 6, 2003, 11:02 AM
There are tons. Anything from double rifles to belt fed MGs. I would really like a Holland and Holland double rifle, MP-5SD, BAR, M249, M2, etc. Absence makes the heart grow fonder I guess :(

July 6, 2003, 11:27 AM
Boss o/u's, Dickson and McNaughton round actions, Henry rolling blocks, 1st generation factory engraved Colt .38 Supers and Aces, large frame Merwin & Hulberts, and really well done rifles by guys like Leonard Brownell or Maurice Ottmar.

Ferguson breechloading flintlock. You can load and shoot it while lying down,and it's weird. The lying-down part? Not for tacticality, I'm just really, really lazy.

Too many to list! And if I finally get it, I want another . . .

July 6, 2003, 12:28 PM
hmmm...most of the handguns by Hammerli and Pardini, H&H doubles, HK21, #5 single actions, HK P7M8 (I own this one finally). There is proberly a few other oddball ones but these are good for now. While some are actually a possibility - becuse of cost - of owning, I still have others that would get more use to purchase first.

I too can attest to the fun of a machinegun shoot. Attended the one in my area 3 or 5 times. Always a "blast":cool:

July 6, 2003, 12:38 PM
cool9mm and Hkmp5sd

There were 3 Glock 18's at the shoot yesterday. Didn't shoot any of them but did fondle one. One with a sholder stock the other 2 without.

July 6, 2003, 12:38 PM
how about theses

July 6, 2003, 12:46 PM
I mostly salivate over projects in my never-ending quest for cool firearms I can actually afford.

Here is my next project as of today*

Acquire Blue steel 4" Ruger GP-100 function shoot it with full house .357 mag for 500 rounds.

Goes to Clark Custom for barrel shortening to three inches, (easier to cut barrel than to mill top strap to accept adjustable sights I want.) Recrown barrel, machine for moonclips, action job.

Goes to Cylinder and Slide for installation of Express Big dot sights, zeroing in with 158 grain SD ammo, and a handpolished "master" blueing in an effort to rival the Colt Royal Blue on a Python I once had.

Fit Lett checkered winewood grips with Ruger medallions in silver.

Should come in at about a thousand more or less.

*subject to change without notice.

July 6, 2003, 12:54 PM
Every LE-only rifle that H&K has ever manufactured. :D

July 6, 2003, 12:58 PM
All time, 'gotta get me one of those' goes to the MP5SD. I will probably have to settle for an airsoft, cause even the civvy semi-auto ones are what? almost 3 grand now? (I did see a preban HK93 at cabela's for $2500. that would work too. :)

otherwise, I have a bunch of the ones I've always wanted: Beretta, Desert Eagle, AR-15.

July 6, 2003, 01:33 PM
Anything that is good...

Any Barrett .50

Any original Parker SxS except Damascus

LC Smith SxS in Ideal grade

An MP5

A compact Ruger Semi in .45 with a steel frame and 10 + 1 capacity.

Any thing else, and enough safes to hold them all.

July 6, 2003, 03:33 PM
Mine is any old mint condition colt 1911,say a 1920's comercial one. A nickel plated one would be cool to.

July 6, 2003, 03:37 PM
DWS1117: :cool: At least you've seen and handled one!

July 6, 2003, 03:55 PM
Double rifles make me salivate dangerously.

.45 Lugers.

I thought a .45 Broomhandle Mauser qualified as well, so I went out and bought one back when I had a job. It's from early in thje production run, and is in "as new" condition, no scratches, perfect finish, zero wear on internal parts, not even scuffs. I'm sttill breaking it in. It's the single best example of the type I've ever seen, and I think I got really lucky.

Anschutz sporting rifles...

July 6, 2003, 06:02 PM
The S&W 627. It's not really an exotic gun but I really want one. And the "357 Mag-8 Times" on the barrel makes it even better

July 6, 2003, 06:26 PM
In 38-55 with all of the Schutzen bells&whistles = double set trigger, fancy finger lever, Vernier tang sights, wind-gauge front, octagonal barrel, Schutzen stock (high comb) and hooked buttplate. Adjustable palmrest:D

Wanting is not the same as having it. And once you have it, the hunt is gone.

July 6, 2003, 07:54 PM

Most of my drool is caused by 1911's of some flavor:
Springfield TRP Pro
Wilson Tactical Elite
Ed Brown (pick one!)
Les Baer Thunder Ranch
Then there's my favorite revo:
Colt Python (in that high gloss, deep blue).

Then there's knives , but that's a whole other topic for another board. :D geegee

Between not being able to buy one, their expense in the used market, the fact that they're HK's & that I once owned them, my vote goes to the HK 91 & 93 :)

Dakota M10 7mm Dakota

July 7, 2003, 12:24 PM
I'm trying to come up with my next dream project.
I try to fullfill mine, and thus far, it has worked. :p

Guess next gun I need will have to be some sort of precision rifle.
Steyr SSG PIV, .308 is high up there, but with a 16" barrel, I will need another rifle for long range shooting.

So maby the
AMP,s DSR-1 Rifle, .338 Lapua can fill that void? :D
