Ah ! the War dept.   got love them !

Seems harder for me to explain why a new Gun...than "SHE" rationalizing say a new PURSE  ::)


Seems I can go years with the same dam wallet, but then "SHE" needs a J.W. Hulme , Gucci or Givenchy... must match her shoes.

Quoting Her "you don't need another GUN ! "

However, the dam purse's fall off the shelf  ::)

Men collect firearms, women collect shoes with matching purses that naturally go with their new outfits. It’s a tale as old as time. But if you match what your toy cost with something for her she will be alot more amenable to you getting your new toy. Worked for me. Just a suggestion.


But what do I know about women.

I gotta admit,  my wife doesn't buy expensive bags or shoes and clothes,  any more than I do. I flat out wear stuff until it falls apart. She buys scrubs and work shoes maybe once a year, and I just ordered a new pair of flip flops and shorts.  It is a little hard to justify the Tommy,  after just buying an SKS,  and I have a varmint gun,  deer gun,  sidearm...  The Thomson is frivolous.

C'mon lotto!

Sticking just with cowboy guns:
--1894 Winchester rifle in 30-30.  28" barrel, half magazine (a 30-30 version of one of the "family" rifles)
--1895 Winchester rifle in 30 USG.  28" barrel, climbin' Lyman, brass front sight with a flip-up ivory "moon" night sight, or a Beech combination front sight. (Grandpa had one very similar when he made his pilgrimage in search of the Lost Dutchman)
--an Oviedo-made El Tigre carbine, in 44 Largo (44WCF).  (For sentimental reasons, they have a good feeling for me that the 92 Winchester never had.) 
--1899 Savage--the thinking man's lever action--carbine in 38-55.  Lyman 2A tang sight in back, and a Marbles #5 duplex in front.  (Strikes me as the ideal ranch rifle.)
--a certain 1873 Shopkeeper in 44 Special, built on a Great Western frame, in .44 Special.  (one of my favorite carry guns, disappeared years ago).

I understand the budget. Keeping myself on one has kept our family happy. Yup, missed out on some nice toys over the years, but worth it.

I have a post 64 model 1894 in 30-30. Great rifle.  I'm currently looking for wood to replace all the plastic,  and then clean it up some.

@Major2, yeah,  I keep seeing stocks, but no matching fore ends. I've been shopping Lee's,  since he did me right with the SKS front sight. Being broke helps one to learn patience ;)

Older thread revisited....

 I'll list mine in hopes a it becomes an interesting thread and/or maybe additional advertizment might bear fruit in my quest .

in no real order then...

1.  A C96 broomhandle Mauser ( quirky and cool I've always like them )

2. A Colt SAA in 32/20 ( has to be a COLT , even a 3rd. gen. )

3. Luger (Erfurt 9mm P-08)


4. A  95 Winchester Carbine in 30/40 Krag ( A Miroku Browning would work )

5. Thompson M1921 or M1927 - M1928A1

Happy to say...these are acquired  ;D

Congrats Major on getting two of your Bucket List guns!
I added 1 to my list today as well, a C96 Broomhandle, a Bolo in 7.63. I had one before that got traded to acquire a Colt Bisley [a genuine Colt SAA was also on my bucket list.
So my "Grail Gun List" looks like this:
1. S&W Ist Generation Hand Ejector "Triple Lock" preferably in .44 Special [ still looking]
2. P-08 Luger, got it a 1915 DWM with Imperial German markings
3. Colt SAA, got a 1905 nickel Bisley in .38 WCF
4. Tommy Gun, an Auto Ordnance M-1, got it
5. C96 Mauser, probably made from 1921-25

Bought one of these critters, waiting for the fedex man to arrive. Next week I?ll see if I bought a good West Hurley 1927a1 or a lemon. The semi auto Thompson from Auto Ordnance and Kahr seem to be the American version of Uberti. They can run but first....


And don?t forget the nfa paperwork to sbr it....

1927a1 came yesterday and does run but only 4 or 5 of my 11 mags seem to work. The others need tweaking or modifying.

an alert ( sound ) on my Cell phone, woke me and now left awake and to idle musing ...

I got to thinking bucket lists.... did a search to see if "someone" else had started a thread on the subject....
well there were some entries, but not in the area I was pondering .

Your top 5  Bucket list firearms, you'd like to own ?

 I'll list mine in hopes a it becomes an interesting thread and/or maybe additional advertizment might bear fruit in my quest .



i'll go along with 1,3,& 5 and add a S&W First model Russian in .44 Russian, 8" barrel nickel plated with scrimshawn ivory grips.

in no real order then...

1.  A C96 broomhandle Mauser ( quirky and cool I've always like them )

2. A Colt SAA in 32/20 ( has to be a COLT , even a 3rd. gen. )

3. Luger  ( 9mm P-08)

4. A  95 Winchester Carbine in 30/40 Krag ( A Miroku Browning might work )

5. Thompson M1921 or M1927 - M1928A1


I could go on I suppose ...but I said 5 so there's mine....

Anybody else remember Sherlock Holmes movie where the crazy loon girl comes out with a pair of Nickel Plate (or silver plate) 7 1/2 inch Colt Thunderers and opens fire????  I want a pair of those.
