My new weakness. AR-15. Nothing special, yet.

870s. They are my biggest weakness when it comes to shotguns. Have 8 right now. A while ago, I could have bought an E grade, not F, E grade 870 for $1500. Brand new and I passed on it. Far as rifles go, I am a sucker for those weird, hard to find caliber guns. Just the other day I got a Ruger M77 Mark II in .300 Remington SAUM. Also got a .222 Remington, 6mm Remington, and 8mm Remington Magnum. Right now I'm in search of either a Remington 673 Guide Gun or a Remington Seven CDL chambered in .350 Remington Magnum.

Funny you say that, I have one in that caliber. Just make sure they have the gold trigger, my old ford had two bullet holes in the cab because of that gun.

S&W revolvers with blued finishes.
I acquired a highway patrolman in a trade, wasn't even looking to trade for one of those, but once I saw it and after I shot it I knew I wasn't gonna be able to sell it.
My next purchase will be a model 29 with the 6.5" barrel, then maybe a model 1917 .45acp after that. Or maybe a model 15.
I just can't help it. :biggrin:

Well here's something we can agree on! I'm really in to wheel guns, especially like the older guns that are pinned and recessed. This 4 inch .41 is my latest Gunbroker acquisition. Unfired in the box, but not for long, it won't be a safe queen I bought it to pack. .41 is my favorite magnum caliber, more fun to shoot than .44, but still wicked enough to hunt most things and defend against 4 and 2 legged predators. I like it so much I've got five of em. The past five years have been a great time to pick up really nice S&W revolvers at pawn and gun shops as a lot of people had to sell them or fell for the black plastic auto craze. I've scored some smokin deals. Cool you found a Highway Patrolman, nice gun! Pretty hard to pass them up, I started buying handguns and just can't stop. An old gent I know who collects and restores bulldozers summed it up with a dead pan face, "it's a sickness".........

The way the muzzle looks on the N frames with the 4" barrel is my favorite look on a revolver. Maybe any handgun for that matter. If the one I have wasn't so pretty and bulky I would use it as a carry gun more often...very easy to be accurate with. Maybe that's why so many law enforcement departments used it as a standard issue gun for so long.
Yeah I'm getting the .44 for the same reason I got a Browning Hi Power. Not for shooting a lot or carrying a lot (even though I do shoot the Hi Power a pretty good amount), but it's an American icon, I like the look, and I want a larger caliber handgun.

I haven't really been paying attention to model 29s lately, but hopefully the swapping for black gun phase will still be occurring about a year from now and I'll be able to find a good deal. I may even end up buying a new one...that's how nuts I am about those. At the moment I am in the process of funding a couple relatively expensive toys and starting a field spread...therefore my next gun purchase is getting put on the back burner.

My favorite "guide gun", Marlin 45/70 with loop lever, rail and ghost ring sights. Bad medicine!

Probably not a chance you'd want to sell it either.

Nope, I love her to much. She has put holes in to many animals, and one truck. :fingerhead:
