That gun you have been looking for. That gun your not going to sell. Let’s see those ladies that have a special place in your hearts. I have a few. A used and loved German SP2022, two new to me that just happens to show up this week. A 257 Roberts model 70 featherweight and a
    S&W 66-1. SHH Don’t tell the other girls in the safe.

    These are the ones I want kept in the family when Im gone (and have left instructions to that effect)-

    20190414_142704.jpg
    Mint M17-2 with TH, TT, TG. My most accurate handgun and one of the last- of many- I got from my buddy Roger before he passed.

    index-73.jpg
    Springfield M1922m2- also from my buddy Roger. He knew Id been looking for one for years and set aside for me. Gave me a crazy good price too. I miss him alot- his shop was my happy place. My most accurate rifle.

    20190202_194135.jpg
    Minty Remington M51 .380. Id only seen these in books until I found this one and couldnt snatch it up fast enough. Always thought they oozed Art-deco class. Since then, Ive only seen two others in the flesh and they werent nearly as nice.

    index-17.jpg
    Savage M99 .243. At one point I had a half-dozen 99s, but this is the first and the last. Classy, no frills, and superbly accurate.

    IMG_20200208_180851_3.jpg
    1917 DWM Luger, ex-Artillery model, converted to a Weimar police pistol in 1920......and then, who knows? If only it could tell stories!

    index-35.jpg
    4-digit 1st Gen Universal Carbine, which I upgraded with GI guts.

    IMG_20200309_222608_9.jpg

    My favorite gun, period. M686 no dash, found at a pawn shop. Bought it to replace my long-gone first handgun, a 681. On second thought, I might request to have it buried with me- just in case the ancient Egyptians were on to something........:D

    IMG_20201231_153345.jpg This Browning A-Bolt I will never sell. Gift from my uncle, I was not allowed to pay for it. Not a Grail Gun per se, but still a gem.

    IMG_20200828_230225.jpg The 1903, again will never sell. Belonged to a friend, I had always made it clear that if he was ever going to sell it I wanted to get the first call, it was kind of a joke between us because I knew he wouldn't sell. Long story short, money was tight for him, I helped him out and he sold it to me and I left it open ended that he could buy the gun back whenever, probably a year or so passed when he died suddenly in a car crash. It's kind of a bummer gun tbh... He did always say that when he ever sold it, I'd be the one he'd sell it to.

    I have had these for a long time, picked up the model 28 above in 1998 at a gun show for the princely sum of $225, the .22 Diamondback new back in 1980 for $279. They are called the good old days for a reason.

    When Magnum research released a stainless Eagle I had to have it. I saved forever it seemed, and hawked the gun shop sites. I finally ordered one and beckoned it home.When I went to pick it up there was a small wait while they got things around.

    That’s when I spied the Buckmark in the case below the cash register. A seven inch Contour. I had to have this one too!:)
    An awesome deal on it, with a waiving of the transfer fee as well. I brought home two pistols that day.

    The last two I’ll ever sell. One so accurate my rifles cringe when I set it on the bench. The other a sledge hammer that handles like a feather.
    (Well, a really heavy feather that sounds like thunder.;))

    One of my all-time favorites this Colt Combat Commander came this way courtesy of a limited edition run from Colt's Custom Shop. As accurate as a Gold Cup without being so finicky about ammo!

    My most prized .22 semi-auto all this Beretta Model 70S needed was a trip to Ron Mahovsky's Metalife shop to get his hard chrome finish and this gun was good to go!

    Finally found a Browning Hi-Power with a trigger I could happily live with (and right out of the box at that), sights I could easily see, and a thumb safety I could actually use. All of which made for a stellar 9mm. that was accurate, reliable, and durable.

    Have to include at least one revolver, in this case a S&W Model 686-no dash that still has the nicest DA/SA trigger on it than any other revolver I have ever tried!

    And can't forget my favorite J frame, a S&W Model 649 been my CCW companion for a long, long time!

    There are lots of nice guns to admire posted in this thread but to me guns are "it's" with no gender. I have had an "it" appear a few times.

    A T-series Hi-Power made in 68. A C-96 Broomie made in 1913. Both, never fired after leaving the factory. Stock is matching to the Broomie and the knife is a Mike Dilluvio custom damascus. Real ivory as well. I paid $2000 for the C-96 and the Browning was given to me as a gift in return for a favor. These are just two of my "never sell" guns. When I kack out they will go to my son.

    Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 Magnum.

    German made not U.S. made. The German made SP2022 hade a different coating on the slide that could not be applied to the US manufactured slides due to the EPA not approving its use here. I’m not a expert but this is the way it was explained to me.
