Lord, have mercy! I'm gonna have to run an ad for my boat!
Did someone say something about Black Powder guns?
Now you're cookin"!
Love the Rogers and Spencer, the Spiller and Burr, and the Whitney Navy!
The last two are Whitneys, yes? What's the one before that, Spiller and Burr?
The brass frame, is a Spiller And Burr.
The last one is a Whitney .
The other is a Rogers and Spencer.
It seems like a Super Blackhawk should be at the top of the list!

Or if someone somehow didn't like the Star Super B (a terrific pistol, BTW), there's always the BM.

And EVERYONE wants an old Colt, of course!

No sympathies to commies, 1911 just does not fit my wants or needs.
I still have the "bucket list" I composed 56 years ago of handguns I wanted to acquire in my lifetime. I was confident that I'd covered all of the bases and certain that once I got every gun on the list, I'd have everything I'd ever want or need. As the years went on, every time I checked one off, it seems two more were added. What became very clear, very quickly is that there's a very big difference between want and need. My "need" list was completed after handgun number three or four. My "want" list is well; still wanting...
This may not be a gun you want but it is the gun that I think you need:
S&W 617-6 4"...
What no 686?. Yeah... you need one.
I have a nice set of Houge grips that needs a 686. Just might have to buy one.
Luckily for gun manufacturers my want list and need list are two very different things.
Not even a single 6?
Colt SAA replica?
I better stop before I realize how many more "musts" I lack myself.
Amen on the Buck Mark. That one and the K22 Masterpiece are the two that ALWAYS go to the range with me.
Your list has and end
Those combat grips just didn't work out for me but this set by pachmyer are just about right.
The trick is to have two lists, the needs list can be finite but the wish list isn’t.
What is wrong with you?
I only NEED one gun at a time.
Thus, my list of needed guns is only one item long.
I just find that I have no desire to dispose of the previous needed guns.
Amen to that. I've slowed down, but not completely stopped.
I'm also happy for the OP. That sounds like an awesome collection - great guns to fit all of your needs.
I’m a man of simple tastes and currently have a small collection, but I’d like to add:
A snubby .38
A Remington 1858 black powder
A NAA Companion
A Glock 34 with a red dot
Those are in order of need/desire.
Are you absolutely certain?
Well I scratched the AR itch. Shoot point blank had a flash sale Delton or DPMS for $399. The local store had the Delton. I put a 2x8 scope on it will shoot it soon
And so you come here, to the House of Temptation where your immortal soul has been placed in peril by the vile Demons of Dragoons, mystical Cabal of Colts, Succubi of Smith & Wesson, Beelzebub of Beretta, and (not to be underestimated) Gay Men of Glock.
(EDIT: Laugh. You know you want to...)
Bow down and prostrate yourself before the mighty 5 1/2 inch, color case hardened, .45 Colt SAA:
^ that one is worth hankering for.
