    Do you have a certain gun that you have that whenever you are showing someone your collectionthat you always save for last and absolutely beam whenever anyone say's: "wow...that's beautiful". Post if you have one that you absolutely will never sell and cannot stop looking at.


    I have a Norinco 86S new in the box with a ridiculously low serial number that I cannot help but be proud of. It is the center of my growing AK collection and my most expenisve purchase yet.

    I don't have a large collection...4 rifles, 5 handguns...
    My 2-tone Delta is by far my favorite, for shooting or looking at...or showing off. :)

    Although the picture stinks and she's a recent addition, I can't wipe the smile off my face. LRB M14SA

    Waited over a year for my DS Arms SA-58. An American made FAL that rivals the Belgian manufactured rifle in quality. Yes, I've got my handguns, and a Beretta 1201 riot, and a forged AK SLR-95 and Colt AR, but (assuming my Commander holstered on my hip), if I had to "grab one and run", it's my DSA FAL. As much firepower as one man can hope to carry, like Jove I can cast down thunderbolts upon those who would oppose me, in the name of truth, justice, and the American way.

    Garand and SPAS 12 are the ones I'm proudest of.

    I have three: A Les Baer, two-tone 10mm, a Shansei Arsenal .45 ACP Broomhandle Mauser, and a cherry Winchester '94 Big Bore in .356 Winchester (had 4 rounds shot through it when I got it).

    The A5 that my grandpa give me. It is a nice old gun.

    The M1 gets the most looks, though. Probably followed closely by the Jap Arisaka, esp. when the bayonet gets stuck on.

    Kinda fond of my HK USP45 Tactical. One of those you enjoy shooting AND cleaning. Not rare or fancy by any means, but I am proud of her.

    My favorite is my CETME sporter that I recently painted. Just an overall fun rifle, very accurate, very reliable, and looks good to boot.

    Most probably know this one .... the M27-2 in 5". For me it is pretty much N Frame perfection.

    My two are My Grandpa's Thompson Muzzle loader he built and the Possibles bag that he hand made out of a deer he shot and taned himself. Guess the other one would have to be my dad's Browning Sweet 16. Both have more meaning than any of my other guns.

    I am proudest of my S&W Model 1917. Still has 99% blueing. Runner-up would be the Browning Model 1910 .380 in the same condition. (Then there is the .30-40 Krag carbine...so in reverse order there is proud, prouder, proudest.)

    I have one pistol that is sort of beat up looking, or acutally more well used looking than beat up. It is missing the off side safety lever yet I will not replace it any time soon. It was not a gift, not something special to look at, not engraved or anything like that, not customized except for pachmeyer grips, I rarely show off except maybe to close friends. It does not fit into the pretty gun stereotype for sure. Yet I would not part with it unless someone offers enough to put my son through college for at least a couple, maybe even all four, years.

    The pistol is a Beretta 92-SB. The things that make it special are that it survived the collapse of the World Trade Center (it was in the Customs Range in 6 WTC when 1 WTC collapsed atop number 6.That makes it a bit dear to my heart, maybe someday I will get to use it on a terrorsit for abit of payback - who know.s. I also had three other guns recovered with no damage so while the recovery makes it special that does not make it unique. What makes it most special and unique among my guns is the fact thsat this was the pistols I used to shoot a guy who tried to mug me. Five holes, one bullet - two of those holes in the family jewels - entry and exit. So yeah this is one spcial gun, it played a part in saving my life life as far as I can tell.

    So I don't beam when they tell me it is beautiful, because no one looks at it and says that. I do smile a little grin each time they tell me nice shooting or whatever along those lines. It was the right thing to do at the time...

    Someday my son will inherit it.

    Best regards,
    Glenn B

    Didn't we already have this thread this year?

    Anyway, my answer is my 1899 Krag Carbine. That and my '66 sunburst Stratocaster are staying with me till they put me in the ground.

    M-1 Garand. It's the only real outstanding rifle in a hodge podge collection.
