    As the title states, price is not an option and they will make the gun you want in the caliber you want (wouldnt that be nice :eek: )

    Mine would be a HK p2000 in 40 or a Glock compact in 10mm.

    A Bersa Thunder in 88 Magnum :neener:

    Or maybe a P7 in .600 Nitro?

    Serously, my 620 would be fine. Or maybe a 5" stainless model 29, a la "Dirty Harry" style, only different.

    GLOCK 23/19/32/38 size frame chambered in .45acp or 10mm, single stack style so that it would have the narrow but "long" grip like the 36. in a 4" barrel, ~8 round capacity.

    Hell, the G36 would be it if it weren't for the design flaw of not extending the grip down to cover the magazine (they instead designed it so that the mag extends in such a way that you have to apply grip pressure to the mag itself).

    If the .45gap were available at walmart for .45acp prices, it'd be the G38.

    I own both mine. I have a P2000 in .40 with the LEM trigger and night sights and a P2000sk in .40 with the LEM trigger and night sights as a BUG.

    Unfortunately I am not allowed to carry them because I live in IL.

    A 7 or 8 shot HK P7 chambered in .45 ACP would be my dream CCW.

    if only...

    I'd like a gun with the trigger and grip angle of a 1911, the capacity of a 5.7, the recoil of a .22 short, the ballistics of a .50BMG, the concealabilty of a kel-tech, the accuracy of a SIG p210, and the reliability of an HK.
    I'd name it Deathbringer....
    or on second thought, I'd name it princess... I doubt anyone would mock the name and the irony would be hysterical...~Nathan

    One of those lexan four-shot SkyMarshall things from the 80's that David Drake wrote about; muzzle-loaded lexan body, piezio-electric detonation, hard plastic bullets. Not enough metal to make a staple. You did say dream gun; and this was closer to reality than a 2-CM blaster!:)

    :( Oh, OK. The new Steyr-Mannlicher Classic rifle in .30-06 or 9,3x62.

    A solid Platinum Desert Eagle with Diamond sights. I'd sell that to finance a real arsenal including something that required ATF involvement.

    S&W 13-2 P&R with a 3" intermediate weight barrel and a gold bead front sight dovetailed into the ramp/rib. S&W made a few mid/intermediate weight barrels for their Model 10 and a few Model 12s series only in the 3" length. I have a 3" 13-4 with the heavy barrel contour and it tends to be too muzzle heavy for me which also weighs on the hip. Granted the heavy muzzle keeps the muzzle from pointing to the sky each time but I have a model 65 round butt that I had a 4" pencil barrel put on and it does not recoil like a flaming beast.

    But since this is in the AUTO section, a good shooter grade Colt 1911A1
    here is my 13 and 1911

    Others beat me to it, but it would be an HK P7M7.

    :confused: Boh of yours already exist. The compact 10mm Glock is the model 29.

    Mine would be a 4" barreled overgrown version of the Tanfoglio Witness Stock Custom chambered in .50 AE with semi-double column 8+1 capacity.

    Being able to carry legally would suffice. I'll worry about which gun later.

    For me a custom 1911...
    Or a Sig, in .357Sig...

    But I live in Brazil, and when I could carry, the biggest caliber allowed was the mighty .380 ACP....

    But with the new laws, all I (legally) cary for defence is my BM Skirmish and my spydercos... :mad:

    Andre Tiba - Brazil

    I agree with the first poster, an 8-10 shot single stack Glock in the essence of the G19 having relations with a G36 in 45 acp!!! Longer grip, and sight radius and BIGGER holes! But I do love my G19
