    My Walther PPK would be like a BMW Mini Cooper S!

    Small and subtle but packs a punch, reliable, and well-engineered.

    Compared to my S&W 629 which is a Dodge Ram 2500 full-size pickup with a V8 engine ready to take on the heaviest of tasks...

    I guess my SIG Sauer P220 would be a twin-turbo 911.:cool:

    Redhawk in 44 Mag = '67 427 AC Cobra. Loud, not terribly comfortable, brutal in its efficiency, but the most fun one can have with their clothes on.

    My Smith 629 would be like a '67 big block Corvette. Nice lines and lots of power.

    My .50AE Desert Eagle would be a Cadillac Eldorado with a 500 cubic inch gas guzzling engine.

    My 1911 would be a Chevy Impala...classic American style.

    My Kel Tec P32 would be a Chevy Metro..small and plastic.

    My CZ would be a BMW..good engineering from Europe and with style.

    Most of my handguns are not car handguns.
    They are truck handguns.

    American industry has yet to come up with a car that has kicked as much European and Japanese butt as the M1911 has.:evil:

    But it did produce the Jeep. Tough. A load of history. Endlessly customizeable with awe inspiring after market support. Good looking in a boxy sort of way. Go anywhere--do anything--under real combat conditions, not a bunch of made-up tough stuff for an advertisement, (whether I'm referring to SUVs or a certain line of gun here is up to you).:D

    Guns for cars, is it? Hmmm...


    Well, for a Luger, it'd have to be something exotic, complex, and un-American. How about a Birdcage Maserati? Maybe that'd fit the Broomhandle Mauser better.

    Fer the Ol' Colt SAA, it'd have to be something that's as American as it comes, simple and unstoppable. Therefore I nominate the Tin Lizzy.

    S&W M-27/M-28 N-frame .357's are police cruisers like the Ford LTD Crown Victoria and the Chevy Caprice Classic.

    Webley revolvers come in as Land Rovers.

    Taurus Tracker .41 mag. Medium size, full power, off brand. 1970 AMC AMX with the 401, well-known to be tough to beat.

    Magnum Research Big Friggin' Revolver in .45-70. Make it bigger, and if it sticks out, chrome it. Harley-Davidson.

    Astra 400/600's are full-power BLOWBACK service guns. Ugly, powerful, and agriculturally simple. AMC Gremlin. (You can get Gremlins with V-8's. 401's a bolt-in. Stand back.)

    S&W M-19. Medium size, extra oomph. Ford Mustang Boss 302.

    H&K P7. Euro-wierd, but very slick. Porsche 944S Turbo.

    S&W M&P/M-10 and related plain vanilla .38's. Chevy Nova/Dodge Duster with the Stovebolt/Slant Six.

    Rogak P-18, the bastard Steyr GB in stainless. A Delorian, I think.

    All Ruger revolvers are trucks. Probably military trucks. Maybe half-tracks. With one exception.

    The Ruger SRH in .454 Casull is a Hemi 'Cuda.

    S&W Triple Locks are refined, obsolete elegance. Therefore a 1947 Buick Super Estate Wagon, typifying post-war elegance. I NEED one of these in the worst way:

    My SIG P220A would be a Rolls Royce, and my SIG
    P228 would be a Jaguar.

    I guess a Model T Ford in new brilliant colors since my favs are about 100 years old. Maybe even a horse buggy?

    SW Revos, Colt Automatics.:cool:

    My Sig 228 would be a BMW 5 series, not a full size like the 7 series (Sig 226), but not as compact as the 3 series (Sig 239). However, all undeniably German engineering and oh so fun to drive/shoot.

    Well,
    My Jennings J-22 would have to be a Pinto, given its propensity to slam-fire. ;)
    The 1911A1 would be a '57 Chevy; universally recognizable, reliable, and good ol' American steel.
    The Glock 19 would have to be any of the currently made sedans; mostly plastic, works well, but no real individual charisma.
    :)

    "If your handgun was a car what would it be?"

    Answer: Heavy as hell and extremely hard to conceal!

    Springfield XD

    Springfield XD-9 - Ford Crown Victoria LS Sport (in Silver Frost Metallic, just like mine). Comfy, easy to use, fits almost anybody, simple to maintain, adequate handling and performance, great value for the price.

    [​IMG]

    Ruger GP100 - Ford F250 4WD (with PowerStroke diesel). No frills, brutally strong, able to handle any load you can fit in it, and almost indestructible.

    Ruger SP101 - Same F250, but in 2WD.

    Brad

    My Kimber 1911 would be a big block super duty Trans Am. Smooth, sleek, with a .455 under the hood.:p

    If my handgun were a car?

    It would be registerd and liscensed by the state:uhoh: Probably be subject to manditory liability insurence and be subject to confiscation if I couldn't produce an up to date liscense and proof of current insurence. :what:
    That's just for starters = this is the PRK!:banghead: :cuss:
    If my handgun were a car, I don't know _what_ it'd be cause it'd be GONE!:mad:
