What gun do you just want but really have no real need for?
I want a Remington 1909 Model 12 with the 24" octagon barrel. I've got several 22 rifles but for some reason I just want one of these. When I find the right one it will probably come home with me.


In every old body lives a young person wondering what the hell happened!

AR15 or AR10. Don't need it, don't have hogs, rarely get to varmint hunt anymore, and bow hunt more than I use a rifle...but still want one.

Have no need for it at all... but I'd love to have one of those full auto "Tommy Guns" like the gangsters used back in the day. I'd only want to own it for a day...then pass it on to someone else. But for that ONE DAY...sure would be fun.

Ruger #1 Tropical in .458 Win. Over the years I have gotten close to buying one several times, and they were at a good price too, but the lack of need got in the way! It seems that after buying a box or two of shells at $100 a pop & then touching off a few, the original buyers were highly motivated to sell! Now you can hardly find one much under the $1K mark. The beauty, heft & feel of the #1 tropical is something to try - an awesome rifle! I have a #1 in .45-70 which I have really enjoyed developing & shooting cast bullet loads in. Now I'd like to do the same with the .458 Win. Without pachyderms or buff's invading the garden, spending a grand on the rifle is not in my future.

Don't need any of 'em, but as I have said before: "Man can't have too many guns"

Also a Kimber or Colt 1911. No use for it and I'm not going to drop $1k on something that I have absolutely no use for. But I would like one.

I will go with Walter, REALLY want a HK MP5. Had one in my hands a few years back that was "owned" by a small police dept. We were building them a prototype 9mm SBR to replace their "old" MP5s. AFTER we had it running, and ready for them to test. We got a call that the MP5s were NOT transferable, AND no avaliable budget for the 15 SBRs they wanted!
So unless I hit the LOTTO, it's not going to happen.
