    For me it would be a collection of HK firearms. I would love to have a P7M8, a HK91, PSG-1, MP-5 and a HK-53.

    I have already told my wife that if we ever win the lottery, I am going hog wild and picking up atleast one of each :evil:

    Original, not refinished, 95 percent or better, S&W .44 Special Triple Lock. (.44 Hand Ejector, 1st. model) 4-inch barrel would be nice. Not priced over $500.00 would be too ...

    And of course with the matching box ... :D

    Mine changes as well, but I keep coming back to the not-minty-fresh-but-not-abused-either M1A1 Thompson.

    Danish Military Contract Sig 210 for under $1500 (I actually passed up one in 97% condition for $1100 at a gunshow 5 years ago....to buy a 6" Python)

    A matched, NIB set of Colt Boas

    A matched set of Colt Python "Snake Eyes", in the display case (I have the stainless one....I carry it. Silly me.)

    A Colt Aircrewman (Never even seen one for sale. Hell, I've never seen one PERIOD.)

    A matched set of Yost full house job Colt Commanders in .38 Super (Oh, wait, he's actually building those....I just need the $8000....)

    And the beat goes on.....

    I'd say a full auto AKM or MP-5 or something along those lines. Of course an automatic Sig 550 would be cool too. I can dream huh.

    A 1903 Mannlicher Schoenauer carbine (not set on year, just that style) in 6.5x54. I turned down a very pretty one in 8mm last year. They only wanted $1000. I should've bought it...

    Last time I saw one, it was over $2k.

    Hmmm . . .

    A Colt New Service Shooting Master in .45 Colt.
    A pre-64 Winchester Model 70 Featherweight in 7X57.
    A Lefevre 12 ga side-by-side

    By the way, "Holy Grail" is really "Chroil Fail" -- the vat of the Dagda Mor (a Celtic god.) A wounded warrior who bathed in it would be healed "even if he were three days dead. It would be a GREAT thing to find! :D

    No, I'm not crying, there's just something in my eye! Dang you.

    Makes me saying I would kill for a pair of Colt Pythons(one to shoot, one to look at) pretty shallow. But, I'll say it anyway.
