That's guys...the CZ75 is a must...wouldn't have thought of that one but with 2 suggestions for it I trust you guys...the lemat revolver...totally slipped my mind,I also think I'll do the webley-fosbury auto revolver too.my list isn't an in order list yet..just numbered to keep them separated for now...but whoever thinks the charter bulldog 44 isn't right,we got to remember it is a huge part of american knowledge after the "44 caliber killer" and son of sam,plus it was fairly popular at the time...and even to this day.

Don't forget the Russian TT series of pistols.
Prominent as Red Army side arms on the Eastern Front of WW2 as well as captured,coveted, and carried by German soldiers.

The Mauser pistol you put a question mark next to could be the "broomhandle",or C96 Mauser.
These were very popular in many wars of the last years of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th,I believe that Winston Churchill even had one.

The Colt 1903 was a very iconic and popular pocket gun.I believe Patton used one in .32 acp to fire at a German Stuka dive bomber in one incident where his famous temper erupted.

And of course,don't forget the granddaddy of all modern semiautomatic pistols:

The Borchardt C-93.

I'd have to think a Sig P210 is pretty 'iconic'. So are High Standard target 22lrs.

And yeah, CZ 75 is a must.

Colt Buntline Sp.

If you only want "iconic" guns, you have a few on the list that don't belong.

Oh yeah...and I'm gonna go ahead and nominate the Bren Ten as well.

Jeff Cooper + the orginal 10mm + trusty CZ 75 design + Sonny freakin Crockett.

The best, most practical, most important? Nope. But pretty damn iconic, ala IMI DEagle.

Y'all ain't gonna like this...

Hi point

Yes, I went there. Look at their fan base, look at how many people love to hate them, and look at what they accomplish: a functional, affordable handgun.

Sorry. Now that I've dropped a "pay day" in the pool, I'll get out.

I don't entirely disagree,trip.

Affordable to the poor defensive handguns are iconic,in that they have raised so much controversy.

Theres even a song for 'em by a band called .38 Special called "Mr. Saturday Night Special" I think.

The issue is this- poor people,especially those on the fringes of society,need to be able to defend themselves probably more then other people as they typically live in bad neighborhoods.

Yet,"gun control" advocates argue that the availability of such guns is a bad thing,because,they claim,it increases shooting deaths by "flooding the market with cheap guns".

Despite the fact that handguns are utilized far more in the underreported act of self defense then they are used in crimes,the main stream media along with the anti gun lobby has persisted in this claim.

They've even made "laws" to ban the importation of guns of a certain size.

It seems as thought the adage is true- limousine liberals who can afford highly trained guards with the most expensive weaponry along with being given the "privilege" to pack their own arms by their buddies in states and localities that severely restrict the Second Amendment, don't care that the poor and disenfranchised can't afford to defend themselves and their families even in their own homes.

So much for their typical party line of being "champions of the people".

And so it came down to American ingenuity to provide- and for what they're worth,Hi Point firearms are good enough to get the job done.

So I agree,they deserve a place in all that is good about guns.
