    A never issued or fired M1 Garand because I've never shot or owned one.

    No, the Lewis only came in 303 and 30-06. I want one in 303. Hell, at this point I'd take a non firing dispaly gun...

    I would imagine it would be (in boutique caliber speak) something like 6.35X51R or something like that. Sounds exotic, no?

    A Garand, ideally from 1943 to match my 03 and 03a3, although any solid M1 would do.

    Browning M-2 "Ma Deuce" .50-cal machine gun.

    I've always thought those were the coolest and wanted one since I was a kid. Totally practical too.

    My dad picked one up somewhere about 30 years ago and had trouble getting $150 for it. That was before the milsurp stuff went through the roof. I took it out and put 50 rounds through it, just for fun. That thing would throw brass 30 feet, and never in the same direction.

    For me, a FA Thompson. I could have bought one in the early 80s for $1200, paperwork and all. I figured it was just an expensive range toy, and passed on it.

    A Les Baer or similar custom 1911, because in real life I’ll never be able to personally justify the price of one!

    A .303 British Lee Speed Sporting Rifle.

    I like Lee Enfields and I especially like the .303 British cartridge.

    You mean one of these? This one was never fired after proof testing.

    As for my pick, I want one of those $5,000 semi-auto FG 42s

    Oh my. I don't know if I could ever get one like that, because I'd have to shoot it at some point. Maybe one that's seen some action in its life would be better for someone like me. Still, that's one nice shooting iron you have there, sir.

    Always wanted a Garand.
    And an SVT40. Which I might go for, because Garands will be around in some form for a while.
