    2. A long slide 1911

    3. A quality .357 revolver (have 3, a 3" S&W, 4" & 6" Colt Troopers)

    Ones I don't pick:

    1. Any Glock (grip doesn't work for me, I've had 3)

    2. Any Taurus product (got burned once)

    3. Any Lorcin/Bryco/Jennings/Jimenez/etc

    I dunno, a friend of the family has one in .44 mag, and it's pretty fun to shoot. Apparently he got it to deal with bears on ice-fishing trips.

    Hmmmm. The 3 I'd like to own right now...

    1: A 1911
    2: A Beretta 92FS
    3: A Beretta PX4 Storm

    and 3 I wouldn't own...

    1: A Glock . No I'm not jumping on the Glock Haters bandwagon, I've held them and they just dont feel right in my hand.
    2: A Highpoint. Same as above, just not a fan of their feel or build.
    3: A Taurus Judge. Got to agree with Gojubrian on this one, the idea is just crazy.

    The three I'd like (some I already have):

    -A good classic 1911
    -A 3" or 6" .357 (pinned and recessed S&Ws would be nice, but I wouldn't complain about a 3" SP101).
    -A single action wheelgun in .45 Colt or .44 Magnum

    Three I wouldn't own:

    -Glock. Any model.
    -After my crappy Judge (which would have been a waste of money even if it worked well), no more Taurus guns.
    -No Hi Points or similar handguns.

    2ruger Mark II Target
    3 Dan Weson 357 15

    I don't like the polymer frames. There is just something about cold hard steel in your hand.
    My opinion and you know what they say about opinions and a certain body part.

    so far i've never owned or fired any (non bb/pellet) pistols or handgun (except for once, a 9mm on new years eve, on a farm in the andes mountains) but my 3 n3 would be:

    1st Three I propose To have/get:
    1. original german walther ppk-
    its german, the James Bond gun, i'm german, i like james bond, and probaly a good starting caliber for a handgun too
    2. Colt 1911 .45 -a standard issue wwII or 60's 70' era
    this is pure classic, it should be No.1
    3. beretta 93r
    this is the Mack Bolan piece i recall reading so many descriptive accounts of(besides the .44 automag), would like to have one for that reason alone though not sure if this was the author's version of the 92, never seen a 93 anywhere...

    Three I'll likely never own:
    1. a glock
    for me, glock is to pistol as teva/birkenstock is to summer shoe, many love em, own em, use em, but i likely never will....just dont like em.
    2. .50 cal anything S&W, desert eagle, taurus....
    uh....why? was next to one last sunday at the range....just seems like such a novelty unless you've had everything else i guess.
    3. a derringer
    unless i want a collection of small guns i'll never fire, which i have in 1/35 scale models all ready....i dont think i'll ever have one of these....plus i dont wear garters.....

    i'm sure my opinions may be subject to change once i get into and more experienced with handguns....

    if i could choose a 4th, it would definitely be an old colt six shooter....

    The only one I don't one that I would like is the FNH Five seveN and since I never have to make up my mind on anything else I own I could never just live with just three. I see a lot of dislike for Glocks, wow and I guess I haven't shot enough of them to make up my mind (I only own 9) so maybe I can make up my mind soon. And I used to be a Taurus hater, but I have turned the corner on that, I own two of their 1911's and am happy, I have owned many, many colt 1911's in the past, but the cost just got out of hand. The Judge I carry every day when I'm out and the number of rattlesnakes it has dispatched would make most city folk crap themselves. I have shoot rattlesnakes with a .22 pistol before and even on one occassion made 3 hits to the head, and a shotgun is never with you when you walk upon one. Now I cn and have killed them with a shovel, but a gun is just too much fun. So guess with the glocks and judge I am an outcast on this board,:D

    Some of these will have to wait a bit as my current priorities fall into the rifle department. My picks are pretty practical and plain...since I've only got 3 handguns at the moment. I'm pretty value-conscious, which figures into both #1 picks.

    Three To Have:

    1) CZ 75- Got it, and recommend to anyone. One of the finest platforms out there.

    2) My 1st 1911- Probably a commander frame. Some day soon maybe...too bad DWs are jumping in price.

    3) Quality 4-6" 357 revolver- A mint Python would be great, but I'll probably settle for a GP100.


    Have no need for:

    1) Desert Eagle .50ae- An impractical handful of expensive bling.

    2) Taurus Judge- I guess it'd be handy if you were ambushed by a swarm of rogue bats or something.

    3) Sub .380 pocket guns- And I'd include the 380, if the LCP weren't so appealing. Just get a 9mm already.

    Looks fun so here it is:

    The good (and one wish)

    1. Any classic Smith and Wesson. Own 66-1 & 64 (constantly on the prowl)
    2. Ruger revolvers. Own Ruger Single-6, Blackhawk .44mag, SP101 .357
    3. Anything from the XD and XDM line. I've loved every one I've shot (including my own) and even though it only makes it out of the safe for range days, it will eventually have a purpose.
    4. The wish list includes a 1911 in a left handed configuration from Wilson or Brown

    The never would own

    1. Hi-point, Taurus, Bersa, Jimmenez
    2. Kel-Tec. good gun, but customer service was rude and unhelpful and that's a pet peeve of mine.
    3. Any Desert Eagle

    I can't say I won't ever own another Glock. Although I'm not too fond of them, if I came across a killer deal, desperate man, what have you. I'd have to jump, if only to resell to a fan-boy. :)

    Ok, here goes my pick…

    Would have:

    1. S&W 625, 5 inch, 45 ACP - fantastic gun my baby and my wife knows if it comes down to her and the 625 … she’s out of here (oh yeah she gave it to me).
    2. Glock 21, 45 ACP – great gun, reliable, functional and ready for the SHTF.
    (Have 2 of them)
    3. S&W 4516, 3.5 inch barrel, 45 ACP, wonderful compact auto for general carry.
    (Have one)


    Would not have:

    1. Any Ruger, don’t like the feel of them, don’t like the looks of them, just don’t like them and if I don’t like them I won’t shoot well with them, so no Rugers.
    2. Llama, accident waiting to happen.

    That’s pretty much it, only have two I don’t or won’t have.
