    Not a bad list. Rather than post my own list, I would simply make two suggestions to add to yours.

    A Browning Hi-Power.
    A S&W K or L-frame .357 Magnum

    Browning or Ruger .22 pistol (whatever fits your hand)
    Smith and Wesson Model 10
    SAA or modern clone
    Marlin 60
    1911
    Block 17 (sorry)

    I honestly have little use for your rifles or shotguns :neener:

    PS, the 10/22 is not a great gun in it's stock form, well, at least for $200

    A fine starting list.
    I'd add a Glock 27,40 S&W and perhaps the .45 ACP Glock 30 or 36 to your stable.
    Also a Marlin 45-70 Govt. Guide Gun wiil fill the bill nicely for really big critters at shorter distances.
    A 30.06 and .270 will fill another hole at reaching out longer for deer ,elk and moose.

    My core collection and "gotta haves" expand every time I buy something new. I can't even solidify what my core collection of GLOCKs should be... apparently the 8 that I already have don't quite fit the bill.:uhoh:

    Mdl. 41 Smith would be a good call instead of the ruger or buckmark. I have owned all, sold the rest, 41's will never leave my side. You will pay a price for them, but they are worth it.

    Nice list. Once you get 'em all you'll just have another list of must haves. So goes the the great hobby of shooting and collecting. Good luck with the completion of your list. I completed mine earlier this year, and go figure, I added another four "gotta haves" to it.:rolleyes:

    So many guns, so little money.:p

    Gee, it seems I'm well on my way to owning a lot of everyone's list:

    I already have:

    Glock 17
    Beretta 92FS
    Browning Buckmark
    AR-15
    Marlin 925

    I'm looking to add:

    AK-47 (Yugo)
    Mossberg 500 or Rem 870
    1911
    S&W Revolver

    At that point, I think my "must have" collection will be complete.

    Considering where the OP lives, I would think the collection should be weighted more toward rifles than handguns.

    No collection is complete without at least one or two Mosins.

    - M91/30
    - M44

    The nice thing is, just about everyone can afford a couple.

    Goblin, Mesa is a "landlocked" city, part of the Phoenix metro area, and a good chunk of Mesa is getting crappier(i.e. more ghetto) by the day. It's a place where you have a handgun on you, but if you've got a rifle, it's because you hunt or shoot it "for fun".

    RtHG77,

    If this is your own list you have to post picks of your NFA's! (I don't make up the rules).

    You need a pocket gun like a Kahr PM9 or Kel-Tec P3AT.

    A suggestion for a couple of additions.
    1. A bolt action .22 lr rifle because: a. It's an excellent platform to practice learning rifle basics & accuracy with. And b. It's cheap to shoot.

    2. A good bolt action rifle in a "hunting" caliber. Something like a .30-06 where ammo is easily available - anywhere, anytime. Practice reaching out & touching someone on deer.
