    Okay, we've talked about what handgun is best for . . . you name it, we've discussed it. But . . . what handgun do you want that you really have no practical use for, or that duplicative of what you already have?

    In my case, it would probably be the AMT Automag II in .22 magnum I got a few months ago.

    I can't say that any of my handgun needs would go unfulfilled if I didn't have this gun, but it's fun to shoot, and sorta interesting to have.

    I would like to have a 45-70 revolver. I have absolutely no use for one. But that just seems like a real man's gun to me. Then again, maybe I would hunt elk with it if I was able to shoot it accurately.

    I've always wanted one an automag, but not only would I not have much use for it outside of plinking, I have never even held ond , let alone shot one. So I don't know if I would even like it...but still want one awfully bad.

    Unless it has a 14" barrel its going to have the power level of a 44mag or less

    Top of my list is the automag3 in 30carbine!! Second would be a desert eagle in 357mag

    Pretty much all of them. I already own more pistols than I can carry and pretty much have all the bases covered as far as EDC, home defense, hunting sidearm, etc. That doesn't prevent me from constantly wanting to buy more guns. As an example, I'd love to have a 629 but I can't imagine what I would do with one if I had it other than shoot it at the range. Lately I've been jonesing for a Browning Hi-power. Same thing. If I had one I might carry it from time to time but it's not like a really need another 9mm.

    I really want an S&W X frame. They are very accurate pistols. I like the 460 cartridge. But in this area a black bear is the most dangerous critter I will encounter. I already have 2 nice single action pistols that will kill a deer or black bear at distances further than I am confident to shoot the critter. Every time I go into Bass Pro Shops I see the X frame calling to me. So far, I have been able to borrow an X frame from a friend when I need a large caliber fix.

    Hi-Point. Why? Why do I want one?

    I think it's morbid curiosity I can't shake and they're dirt cheap.

    Sig Sauer Scorpion to be exact.
    Useless because I'd only use it on the range for fun.
    It wouldn't get any "use".
    I wouldn't carry it, take it camping or keep it on the nightstand.
    Too purdy.

    My first handgun was a 6' Colt "Huntsman" ($54 + change) at a local hardware store. Of course, it is long since gone. Every time I see a Woodsman, an upscale version, I have to check the price. Someday, I'll have one!

    Absolutely. Same here.

    The other one for me is a Kel Tec PMR-30. I just think it would be an awesome gun to plink with. 30 rounds of 22 WMR. To me, that round doesn't have any practical application. Any critter I need to kill with a .22 I have .22LR for, which is a crazy amount cheaper.

    But still, 30 rounds in a handgun. Pretty neat.

    I just said this morning. I want a revolver with a beaver slap handle! lol! The smith & wesson 38 special with the wood grip looks pretty sweet to me! lol! I don't need it but I want it.
    Definition of Beaver Slap: when you see a vehicle with wood paneling... you yell "beaver slap" and whack your buddy in the car. (just like punch buggy - but instead it's a beaver slap) This is the kind of fun we have in Canada... lol!

    For me it would be a .357/.38 Derringer. I have no use or need for it... but I think it would round out my SA .357 and my Rossi .357 lever gun. Then of course I would need a double barrel shotgun.
