    Most people who own or enjoy firearms era/gun type/ manufacturer/ etc. that they are more interested and have more knowledge about. Most also have some guns of that type in their collection. What's your favorite and what's your favorite gun of the type?
    My favorite are military and law enforcement side arms from black powder revolvers up to around the Vietnam War era. As I've only been able to get handguns recently, mine is my Waltger P1.

    I'm not sure it's an area of expertise or special interest, but I do know that my eyes are first drawn to Colt automatics or Smith and Wesson Revolvers; I prefer guns made before the 1970's.

    I know a little about a lot and a lot about a little. I am an expert at nothing. :(

    I know my way around black powder firearms and the more modern military/ Leo stuff. Throw an old Mauser or something at me and I may not be able to identify it, but if parts are available I can still fix it.
    I built a nambu from a box of gun, but wouldn't say I specialize in them.
    Obviously I specialize in Glock, but you give me any modern firearm and I'll rip it apart and put it back together.
    If I had to state a favorite to date, I'd say the kriss vector. That is just an awesome platform. Such a cool gun.

    I call myself a multitool as I'm good at a lot of things but not great at anything.

    I totally agree. I've got a Diamondback and Woodsman Match Target. They're two of my favorite guns I own.

    All guns, but I have a very keen interest in oddities, experimental firearms, failed firearms, rare firearms, and homebuilds.

    I love old Mauser handguns. They're one of my particular favorite manufacturers. Though I've never had one apart. Sadly, it's very rare I find a Mauser pistol anywhere in my area

    These interest me too. I've always wanted to get good look at a Dardick. But I've only ever seen pictures.

    WWI & WWII Milsurps. Started when my wife and daughter went to a charity gunshow at the local Lions club about 15 years ago, she came back and gave me a 1912 SMLE #1 MkIII.
    I've sinc added another built in 1956, VZ24, 03A3, M38 , and looking for more as I can afford and be confident of quality and ability to still function. I'm NOT looking for wall hangers, and there is a lot of them available!

    I've watched his Dardick video before, actually.
    Isn't that a semiautomatic revolver?
