    Ok, so I was thinking, I have a lot of handguns, but I have one that I prize above all. It's not the most expensive, but to me it's worth more than the rest. For me it's my "new" Ruger Security Six. I have others that are worth more monetary wise, but who cares.

    So, what's your most prized handgun? Let's say your house is on fire and you only have time to grab one, which one would it be. Oh, and don't forget, pic's are nice to look at. ;)

    Sorry, but one won't do, it would have to be at least 3 if not 4 of them. This one, took me the longest to save for.

    But these would go with as well.

    Ha, yep it's hard to pick. I really had to think about my choice. That Kimber is nice.

    I think I would have to say mt 2 1/2" mod 19. I don't know why but it just feels the best.

    I don't have any photos of the handgun, it isn't that impressive looking anyway. What makes it so special to me is my Dad brought it home from his forced North African and Italian Alps Vacation.
    P38 taken in Italy in late 1944. It's a little worn and has some pitting from the holster.

    Kimber 45s and kimber 10mm. Look at it, shoot, hit. Guns that make me look like a better marksman than I am.

    My very first gun, I bought a new Dan Wesson 15-2 in 1977. It is now in my son's hands (so I did part with it), and destined to pass along to his son/daughter when the time is right.

    I have several custom and unique pistols and revolvers but this one is at the top of my favorites list. It's an Austin Behlert custom S&W 25-2 in Armoloy hard chrome. Just an incredible gun, a piece of art made for fighting.

    Prized? That would be my dad's NYPD pre model 10 and the first generation, first year production Colt DS he carried off duty. Excepting those, I would grab the P7 before the others

    I guess my DW, since it'd be the hardest to replace if I ever lost it... but nothing I own is terribly valuable, nor do I have any real sentimental attachment to anything.
