    Marlin 60: Skinny but surprisingly accurate. :cool:

    SAR-1: As reliable and as accurate as a shovel. :D

    Russian M44: Beat to high heaven, inaccurate, but loads of fun. :)

    Winchester 1911SL: Might be worth more as scrap steel and matchstick wood, and has never been fired. :barf:

    Mossberg 590: Seems like it's a good gun, but it too has never been fired. :confused:

    Carl Gustaf 1919 Swede Mauser, refined (sporterized but done tastefully so): More accurate than I am, but is expensive to keep fed. :uhoh:

    S& W Model 39-2, grip too long for good trigger engagement.
    Browning HP Adjustable sights, sights too delicate for general carry, round too small.
    Charter Bulldog .44, snake loads OK, 246 gr. lead, kicked like mule.
    Colt Commander LW, nice to carry, not to shoot.
    Remington 1100 12-gauge, despite accessories, always worked.
    Ruger Mk. I fixed sights, most fun by a dam sight.
    Colt SAA in .22/.22 Magnum, too pretty to shoot.
    Ruger Single Six .22/.22M, just never shot it well.
    Star DK Starlite .380, just couldn't get a second magazine for it.

    Those are the ones I've traded and or sold.

    Who notes he only regrets the Ruger Mk. I. :cool:

    Makarov - Load it, pull trigger, bang, every time, buy 1 or more.

    Old Colt OP 6" - Does the job.

    Ruger 10/22 - Love it, easy take down.

    Partial list:

    Semi pistols

    Smith 41 .22LR: Let your Ruger Mark II-owning friend shoot it and he'll hate life.

    Grendel P30: Great idea, horrible POS execution.

    FN5.7: Weird grip angle but flat shooting, accurate, and fun with tracers.

    Seecamp .32: Serious deep cover carry.

    Automag III 30 carbine: Really loud, fair accuracy.

    SIG P210: Swiss perfection, accurate as a Smith 29.

    .357 Automag (Original): Beautiful, accurate, and flat-shooting but breaks parts constantly.

    Desert Eagle: A horrendous butchering of Jon Powers' beautiful and wonderful Magmatic, for which IMI execs should serve hard time.


    S&W 351: Ideal ladies carry J-frame.

    S&W 340: (Karl Malden voice) Never leave home without it.

    S&W 329: Never leave home without it when you're wearing a jacket.

    S&W 29 (pre-1965): The gold standard for build quality and finish.

    S&W 29 and 629 (current): The old gold standard for DA revolver accuracy.

    Ruger Redhawk: The old gold standard for strength, but with indifferent dimensional tolerances that keep Hamilton Bowen in business.

    S&W 500: The new gold standard for DA revolver accuracy, strength, power, and company ability to say "F*ck you, strong letter to follow" to gun-banning politicians.


    Glock 18: Within 15 feet, better than a 12 gauge with 00 Buck.

    Suomi 9mm: Smoothest shooting subgun ever, with compact 50-rd mags to boot.

    Thompson: Nothing looks classier with a fedora and pinstripe suit.

    Colt Monitor: Sexiest machine rifle ever made; Clyde Barrow's favorite.

    FN-D: The Belgian jackhammer and JR's favorite.

    RPD: Second deadliest hand-held cartridge weapon in the world.

    M249 SAW: World's deadliest handheld cartridge weapon.

    1917A1 and variants: Like a laser at long range.

    Ruger 22/45 5.5" bull-barrel: Find a challenging target, 'cause it shoots like a friggin lazer.

    Ruger 10/22: Fun & fast--and almost as much fun to customize as it is to shoot.

    Ruger 77/22: Too much gun for such a little bullet (and too much trigger for the gun).

    Ruger Redhawk (.41): Fantastic platform for getting the very most out of a revolver cartridge.

    Browning Buckmark: Wish I'd known what I had when I had it.

    S&W 340PD: Incomparable pocket power.

    S&W 66: The 38/357 K is The ergonomically perfect handgun.

    S&W 625: The quintessential fast-load wheel for shooting games.

    S&W 657: Mastering a magnum--even the 'mid-range' .41--is a worthwhile challenge.

    Marlin 1894c (.357): Fast, fun, and handy beyond compare; and it transforms the .357.

    Marlin 1894fg (.41): Just a skosh more heft and power for doing serious work.

    Remington 870P: Reliable, instinctive, versatile, sturdy, easy-care, attractive (walnut), and authoritative; the one gun for all purposes.

    Oh, yeah--Colt Lightning, mfd 1884: Trigger's gotten a bit stagey on great grandad's police revolver, and it's the only gun I don't shoot; but I spose I still value it most of all.

    Gotta get my .02 worth in....

    Stoeger B2000 - A Benelli M90 for 1/3 the price.

    Ruger 22/45 - Grin inducing rodent control system.

    Ruger GP100 - Take one Sherman tank, compress slightly, and chamber for .357 Smith & Wesson Magnum.

    Ruger SP101 - One number higher, one less chamber, and a very worthy successor.

    Springfield XD9 - So what you're saying is the XD40 mags will fit and hold 15 rounds of 9mm? Well, now....

    Springfield Longslide Loaded Match Target - Got any gnats' butts that need shaving?

    Taurus PT111 - Not-so-stellar reputation, but it fits in my pocket and goes BANG every time I pull the trigger.

    Ruger 10/22 - Do you think someone, somewhere, might be able to dream up just one more aftermarket option?

    Winchester M70 .30-06 - Old Faithful.

    my turn!

    Just trying to make sure I stick to complete sentences instead of fragments.

    Ruger Mk II: Bought it to teach my wife to shoot, and now she uses it better than me.

    Firestorm .380: Just like the Bersa which everyone loves, but it has better ergonomics, AND fits in a Walther holster.

    Firestorm Mini .45: Not a bad gun, just bulky for a compact .45, and not quite as nice a value as the .380.

    Charles Daly 1911: Hmmmm...looks like a 1911, Feels like a 1911, acts like a Jennings. :(

    Ruger Blackhawk .45 Colt: Fun gun to shoot, and a perfect example of why guns don't need to be 'needed' to be worth buying.

    CZ-75 9mm: Accurate fun to shoot high capacity 9mm that makes me forget all about the POS Beretta's I used to have to use in the Navy.

    Saiga 7.62 X 39: My introduction to EBR's, if I only I could get it to shoot groups better than Minute of Torso.

    NEF Handi-Rifle in .270 : Inexpensive rifle with moderatly expensive scope equals great way to get people introduced to 'major' calibers with the flexibility of additional barrels to boot!(oops...run-on sentence.)

    Marlin 1894C: More fun than a new kitten, and usefull too, it would be the last gun I get rid of.

    Ted Williams 20ga Semi-Auto: Hey, it's a shotgun, and the price was right!

    Chinese Dragunov semi: I wasn't actually drunk or smoking dope when I paid $3500 for it in 1989, but I might as well have been.

    Gov't Model .45: Charlie Askins says "A dozen dead Mexicans can't be wrong."

    Jennings .25 (that was part of an estate collection I bought): The finest name in throw-downs.

    S&W 422 .22 lr: What moron designed the grip angle on this thing?

    Freedom Arms Mini-Revolver .22 Short: Looks great on a neck chain hanging in my GF's cleavage.

    Chipmunk .22 lr bolt action single shot rifle: When you want to tell everyone how safe you are by getting your kid a single shot first rifle but it's really because you're too cheap to buy the ammo that a repeater would consume.

    Chief AJ 10/22: Must say AJ to be real thing (The Chief's own ad copy in Shotgun News, which I thought was hilarious.)
