It would take forever but here goes:
Smith 67 (my actual 1st, good starter)
SS 4" Python (my actual 2nd after the 67 blew up)
Steyr GB (expensive as all get out, but very, very sweet)
Ithaca 1911 ('nuff said)
Lady Smith 9mm (compact, but gets the job done)

If I could go back and do it over again I'd probably go with my original first five:
Colt 1911
Browning Hi-power
Winchester Model 70 .06 Bull Barrel
Colt Python 357
Ruger Mark I

This has really gotten me to think. If I do not currently have any the 5 dream guns I have on my list, then I really should work on that. I'm thinking my LCP might have to go to make way for a better pocket .380.

I'm also amazed at how many chose the Browning Buckmark for their .22lr pistol. There are a lot of really good 22's. I wonder why the Buckmark got so many nods.

Because it is good, accurate, reliable, cheap, and time tested?
