NRA – American Rifleman

The NRA American Rifleman ha a list of the 10 handguns you have to own before you die…a bucket list if you will…they are:

  1. Colt Single Action Army
  2. Colt 1911 Government Model  - .45 ACP
  3. Smith & Wesson Model 27  -.357 magnum
  4. Smith & Wesson Model 29  - .44 Magnum made famous by Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry
  5. Smith & Wesson Chiefs Special  - .38 Special
  6. Colt Woodsman  - .22LR
  7. Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan – .454 Casull
  8. Browning HiPower – 9mm
  9. Walther PPK – the James Bond gun
  10. Glock 22 – .40S&W

I have fired 1,2,3,6,8,9 and 10.

I have owned a Glock 17L and a Colt 1911 but it was in .38 Super. I fired/carried the Browning HiPower in the Army. I aslo owned a S7W Model 10 but it was highly customised for competitions.

I have always wanted a Colt Single Action Army.
