It's what he wants. What's the problem?

Ehhh, I don't get it, either.

I could say what I like, or have, but I don't care

what's the most popular.

Why don't you ask the Homecoming King, OP?

Maybe I should reword the question, popular seemed like a good word for it. I like history, so I guess what I want is the gun that revolutionized each caliber or made that caliber "popular". The Colt 1911 revolutionized the .45 ACP and spawned countless copycat guns, hence popular. The Walther PPK may not have revolutionized the .380 but it has a lot of history in WWII, hell Hitler killed himself with one. See where I am going? Its just how I want my collection to be.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

@ C B ^^^ I knew someone would balk at that one (15? pfft!) and had my suspicions who it would be.

Given this new clarification I would say the .40 S&W gun would be the Glock 22 (Gen 2) because of it's use by the FBI and the fact that the FBI pretty much asked for the .40 to be made.

Ditto on the .40 Glock

Canebreak is the local 1911 guru, specifically Colt, and there are a TON of 1911 lovers around here that have more than 15. LOL! I am still on 1 but I am already looking to acquire more.

You don't need 15 to meet practical needs, that's more of an obsession (not a negative term). However I can see a need for more than 1, you have a carry piece and a nice range piece and the requirements like size are going to be different for each. Then you might want to have another one that is always available in a lock box next to your bed for home defense. There's probably more than one person reading this who keeps one in a waterproof container for use in a defensive shower emergency.
