    No particular order:

    1. G19 (Gen3)
    2. G34 (Gen3)
    3. Ruger Super Blackhawk Bisley (.44 Mag)
    4. Ruger Super Blackhawk 5.5"
    5. S&W 442 (no lock)
    6. Springfield Loaded 1911
    7. Dan Wesson CCO
    8. SIG P229 Equinox (9x19)
    9. SIG P220 Scorpion
    10. Ruger LCP

    The first nine were easy, but I had a really tough time putting the right gun in that last spot lol. Thing is, I can't imagine ever owning ten handguns. I enjoy shooting rifles, shotguns, and handguns pretty much equally, and I think I'll stop at about eight to ten guns total. Only way it'll go over is if I have a duplicate or two.

    If I had the money, and the desire to have a collection, I'd have:

    Basic 1911 meeting Jeff Cooper's requirements for carry
    Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special
    Dan Wesson CBOB
    WWII Remington Rand M1911A1
    WWI M1911
    Original, black powder frame, Single Action Army (circa 1870s-1880s)
    Colt Walker
    Colt 1851 Navy
    Glock 19
    Smith and Wesson Model 10

    As it stands, being a minimalist, I only own number 1 on my list, and I'm happy with that.

    I don't even own 10 different handguns!

    I have shot the Ruger Super Red Hawk and Super Black Hawk in .44 Mag, and I was impressed with their accuracy.

    I have shot various Ruger and S&W revolvers in .357 Mag and each one was fantastic.

    The Browning Hi-Power is amazing.

    The CZ 75B family is the best service / duty pistol in my opinion for 9mm.

    Hard to say. I do not own any wheel guns-yet. I like Kimber Ultra Carry 45 Sig Sauer, any of them although I am not too fond of the P250 series. Rugers, S&W M&P's I will not post what I have. Oh wait 1 wheel gun I like is the Colt 38 Detective Special.
