For me the list could go on forever, but just being realistic, Im only going to list a couple that could , possibly, maybe, become one I own.

1. Thompson Center Contender with 45-70 gov 14" barrel
2. Ruger Mark III Target SS
3. Ruger or Savage Scout rifle in .308
4. Magnum Research BFR revolver in 45-70 gov 10" barrel
5. Ruger # ! 416 Rigby

Thats a short list, that I actively keep my eyes open for , but seems something else always jumps out at me , and disrupts that list.:)

I had a Yugo Tokarev M57 on the list for years... just ordered one Sat.:rolleyes::D

Whats your list look like?

Wanted and getting are 2 different things but I guess.
1.My Stainless Springfield 1911A1 45acp,if the guy I sold it to still has it like he said he would do.
2.Ruger MKII or MK III (I've had the II haven't had the pleasure of the III yet)
3. Ruger New Model Super Blackhawk with a 10 1/2" barrel.
4. Some sort of AR in .223.
5. Single shot muzzle loading pistol in 45 cal. with at least a 12" barrel.(A barrel for my Contender would be nice but I don't know if anyone makes one for it.)

Jim,
If you could you would have a bazooka. Your problem is that you have scrounged all the pawn shops and gun shops within a 10,000 mile radius and they all know what you want and when they see you coming they hide the "heavy duty" stuff cuz they don't want to help you carry it out. :cryinglaugh:
Now, look at me, I don't have that desire any more-well maybe, I might be lying (a white lie) but I keep looking at the internet and gunbroker.com and reading magazines Buster told me to quit buying. I am now a saved man!!! I have no more guns I want nor need-----maybe, just maybe another Match Series Colt 70, or another Python, or try a Sig Sauer, or possibly a 22-250 heavy barrel, 223 Remington Hunter Special again, possibly a .243 or a WWII 1911 (Singer made of course). BUt seeing how I am a changed man (actually don't have any money), I have been converted and seen the light. If you need one, I can send you a 75watt light bulb so you can see the light too!!!!!

Forgot to mention a Ruger Vaquero nickel plated!

Tommy you are kinda sorta in the twilight zone also. At least when you lie you turn around and tell the truth. Hello....my name is.... and I am a gun addict. If they had meetings for them it would be a crowded room.

I'm with buster on the Colt Python or any Colt snake gun would do, but it ain't gonna happen unless I win the lottery. Oh I forgot we don't have the lottery here in Alabama!

I really think I am set, except... I'd kinda like a Smith Model 15, 5 or 6" barrel - or whatever the Ruger equivalent would be. I enjoy punching paper with the Model 10, but better sights and a longer barrel (it's 3") would be nice. It was cleanup day at my club range today. The guy I worked next to mentioned the 'serious gap' in his rifle collection between .22LR and .243 Winchester; he figured it would require two more guns to fill it.

Scotty,
I don't do this very many times however since you are on the forum, I will make you a deal. If you send me $100.00 per week, I will play the Lotto and Superball for you faithfully and the only thing I want in return would be just HALF of what you win (after taxes) and other than that it won't cost you anymore. Now normally I don't make offers like this, but I am known to make exceptions for friends. BTW-we are friends now and just wait til you win the Lotto and we will really be GOOD friends. Scouts honor!!!!:metal2:

With just one lacking, I finished my firearm bucket list some time ago. The single holdout is a Sig P210. A few that interest me but nothing that is a must-have anymore. A few more Ruger #1's in various chamberings would be nice but in the big scheme of things, I'll pretty much set.

Holy crap I did it. I hit the submit a few times and dang it my short list just got shortened. For my hating snakes I just spent a couple big bills + on a Python.
I said I wasn't going to do it. I am such a liar. I said if it went over a price I was done. Well that was a lie. Guess who fricken won?
I still think if I ever have to sell it then I will get more than I paid for it. That's my excuse and I am sticking to it.
Notice the cylinder only has wear on the right side. Must have been a right hander owned it. lol

In the past week or so I have come to realize that I need a GP100 pretty badly. Unfortunately, that means I need to sell my Chiappa Rhino 50DS.

77 y.o. geezers should have no needs beyond medical attention.
