I know, but mine would be a 1911.
Got to stick my head in the breech of one.
A Ljutic Space gun is the 'bucket list gun' for me. I shot a Mono-gun back in @1980; have wanted one since. A friend just picked up a Ljutic LTX and is going to let me shoot it. I have been blessed recently as several members of the Trap league have let me try their guns; I have shot so far this year: A Mossberg Silver Reserve set up for Trap, a Citori, a Remington 1100 Synthetic (before I bought mine) a BT-99 Golden Clays, and a Kreighoff Kx6.
I've found showing an interest in another's guns at the range often results in an offer to try them, and I am more than happy to let others who show interest in my guns to try them, (I think I've sold the LGS's other two 1100 Synthetics for them......) it's fun to watch others enjoy shooting my guns, and I sure appreciate when others let me shoot theirs
See, I've already shot a Lahti, and the SIG 20mm anti-materiel rifle, so I kind of feel like I've ticked the Panzerbusche box off my list. Mostly.
Hmm, hard question.
have to say a Baker Rifle.
Make friends with Dickie Sharpe.
Well, there is more than one … in fact, there are many. To avoid using excessive bandwidth and crashing THR's server, I shall refrain from listing all the guns I still want to shoot …
I thought I was good after getting to shoot the M134, the Ma Deuce, a Thompson, an M60 from the hip … Guess I still need to shoot a Winchester 1886 in .45-70 (why I want one, I can't figure out, but I do) … Maybe a good copy of a Sharps (Tom Selleck, can you hear me?) …
Wait: I just remembered I've never fired an M61 Vulcan 20mm!! That would be it …
A Bronze Cannon!
One that rings, like "Long Tom" on Capt. Hooks ship.
Powdered with my own "Holy Black".
And GPS cannon balls, for recovery and aiming.
A trailer built like the side of a Sloop, for firing the cannon with the proper rigging, would be a nice touch.
Maybe a bronze Bowgun I could mount to my picnic table.
Ahoy! Surrender yer burgers and prepare to be boarded!
Non NFA... I'd like to shoot a Desert Eagle in .50ae. It's been in the back of my head ever since The Matrix came out.
Stupid reason right? I need to go to a range and rent one before I make the mistake of ordering one.
That's what I did.
My Desert Eagle was delivered to the LGS shortly there after...
I have had 50ae dies saved in my cart for like 2 years now lol. One day... But then another (more friendly priced) gun comes up...and so on.
.50 AE Desert Eagle is one of about two guns I've not enjoyed firing. And, I am generally not recoil sensitive, fire things like airweight .357s better than the owner. The .357 and .44 Desert Eagles very soft shooting, but the .50 is just a horror show. Fired one... that was weirdly bad. Maybe I had a bad grip? Fire a second. No thanks, I am done. Invited to finish the mag at least, I still decline. Nope.
I found the .50 AE no worse than my .44 mag. Moose loads-I wouldn't want to shoot a box each time out, but one mag is fun.

I am so with ya there! Once was quite enough.
There once upon a time was a LGS into which, one day many years ago, walked someone with a fistful of cash who wanted to buy a .460 Weatherby. Of course, in S. Fla it's really only good for hunting something on the scale of Buicks so they didn't have one in stock. The smart guys took the deposit (somewhat over cost + shipping) and ordered it. Moneybags didn't come back for the pickup so after 6 months (the terms on the receipt) they'd take it to the gun club and give anyone who wanted to say they shot one an opportunity to do so, for $5. It was one beautiful, well made, silky operating firearm. And yeah, I shot it. Once.
A Drilling. In a big caliber, doesn't matter what exactly. A 458 lott on the cz magnum action. I may end up with one of these someday! A BAR sporter in 338 win mag. A BFR in 475 linebaugh. And a 50ae desert eagle. Wanna see how it shoots compared to the automag 50 I had. And a 221 fireball in an xp100. NFA, the answer is ALL of them...
NonNFA ... that's no fun!
I would like to try a 32 cal revolver. I don't think I've even seen one down here in SouthFla.
And probably one of the higher end rifles like a Blaser.
I've shot the Desert Eagle in 50 a couple of different times, and the first time it was alright. Not pleasant, not fun, but tolerable. But the second time, I must have not had a good grip, cause it was downright painful and drew blood on my palm. I have small hands, and it's just too much for me. The 357 is loud and obnoxious but it's a tame recoil. The 44 is as well.
I passed on firing the S&W 500 as it seemed that it would be a heck of a beast for me. Same goes for the 454, 460s, and such. I once fired a few of rounds from a lightweight 300 Win Mag. Not fun at all.
I have fired 50 BMG from one of the single-shot AR uppers. It was alright.
I'd like to try the M107 some time.
For NFA, you know, can't resist. I've crossed off a few, courtesy of Uncle Sugar - M16(A1, A2), GAU5, M4, M60, M240, M249, Mk19, M2, M203 and a Sterling that was in the armory in Iraq. I have a buddy (SOT, FFL 07) with quite the collection Uzi, MP5, FG34, FG42, Bren, M1919, Glocks, PPSH-41, PPS-43, and a couple others - I've gotten the opportunity to shoot most of them. At other times, a Kriss, Reising, Sig 550, MP5SD (loved that), Sten, AK47, Mac 10/11, and a few others.
Still on my NFA want to shoot list -- a Tommy Gun, M3 Grease gun, AR180, AC556, Skorpion and a P90.
Double rifle in 600 Nitro Express
44 Auto Mag
I'm with Labguy in post #3. The American 180. Referred as the 100-yard shotgun by the corrections people who used it. When I first heard about them, I was fascinated. Anything that can shoot 175 .22 LR rounds at one pull has got to be fun.
Paratrooper version of the Thompson sub-machine gun.
And of course Ma Deuce.
A Dillon Mini-Gun would be a lot of fun, as long as someone else pays for the ammo
Sig P226, Sharps Rifle, STI 2011 variant.
Shooting one of the 16" cannons on the USS Missouri would be pretty awesome.
Realistically, there are so many that I could probably choose a different one for every week of the rest of my life. I'd like to try a CZ TSO, a .50 BMG, a Korth Kombat (earlier model) and a Mauser MG-42. After that, maybe an Oerlikon 20mm anti-aircraft gun.

Would love to shoot one! At one time I was interested in buying one, but at 15K I passed.
I own quite a few guns that I have never shot. Some I consider collector pieces and some I simply never got around to shooting. Tis life.
