I would probably repeat what I started with. But most have found new homes years ago.

Ruger Single Six with 22 and 22 Mag. Cylinder *Traded
Colt Trooper 357 Mag *Traded
Colt Detective Special 38 Cal. *Traded
S&W Model 27 5"
Colt Python 6" Blue *Sold to father in law
S&W Model 60 38cal. *Traded
Colt National Match 45 ACP *Sold to a good friend

Sorry to say I only have one of them listed above in my collection at the present. The S&W Model 27 5"

Good question! Think I will have to go by what I use the most. Top 5 =

#1 Main carry - SA 1911A1 Govt 9mm

#2 Main back-up - Beretta 21A .22lr (just replaced this week w/LCP, have not used it yet)

#3 Main range target practice - Oly Matchmaster Longslide .45ACP

#4 Top pigeon plinker - Beretta NEOS .22lr / with red dot

#5 Last but not least - Taurus Judge w/6" bbl - everyday favorite farm tractor, truck carry weapon. Gets fired a lot! Probably should have put this one at the #2 spot!

Well, I would have skipped the P3AT and the P380 and gone straight to the two I just bought.

1. Kahr PM9. This is my primary concealed carry.
2. Since it's not going to be much fun for plinking I also bought a Ruger MkIII SS .22 LR.

Then the next three handguns I want to buy are...

3. Springfield Armory 1911 .45 ACP.
4. A .44 Magnum (Need to research this)
5. A Glock (not sure which model or caliber)

Well, i would probably get the Ruger Mark whatever instead of the AMT knockoff of it. And then, i would pick up a Ruger GP100. And then, I would pick up a CZ-75b. And then, i would pick up a XD45 Tacticool in OD green . And then, Colt Delta Elite in 10mm (without the homo grips).
Dead Bears, the only good kind.
