      The centerpiece of your collection.

      What is OR what would you like to be the centerpiece of your handgun collection?

      I'm not looking for bbq guns or safe queens. However, one that may be pulled out at a BBQ. I'm looking for a "mostly" stock handgun. One that is sexy, without having to be dressed to the nines. One that is fired occasionally. One that is reliable and accurate. One that will provoke envy from friends, family and firing range fans. One that you will be proud to hand down when that time comes.

      All with a price tag in the $500 - $1500 range.

      My centerpiece is my USP-C 9mm, its my most expensive gun I own, and also the one I will be CCW, however the gun I would pull out at home would be my glock 17.

      Prettiest gun I own. Meaning, it's well used, gets dirty and never sees the inside of a safe, because it's always on my hip or at a training session. No safe queen here.

      This was after a three day Magpul Dynamics class. I think it looks prettier when it's a little dirty. hehe

      I have several to "show off". But, "The One" is my mountain/wilderness hiking gun.

      Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan in .454 Casull.
      All stainless, 2 1/2 inch super snubby with Magna-Ported barrel and front Tritium night sight.
      This is 44 ounces of a "manly" combo.
      Galco tan leather holster and cartridge belt.

      Fun to show to friends, even more fun to have them shoot it for the first time.

      I like all of the ones I currently have. If I ever get really flush, though, I think a Wilson CQB 1911 would be a nice piece for my little arsenal. I'll never have a safe queen, though. Anything I own is going to be taken out and fired from time to time.

      I'm not sure if it meets your minimum price, but my "centerpiece" is the IMI Baby Eagle in the 9mm. It is accurate, well balanced, low recoil, flawless in it's performance no matter what loads I put through it, fits very comfortably in my hand, fit and finish are excellent. I just picked up a Walther PPK/S in the .380 that I am shooting now to break it in, but the I just love shooting the Baby Eagle.

      Toss up between my Beretta 92FS INOX or my Beretta Cheetah 84 Two-Tone that I made into a "Black Tie".

      I'm luck enough to have several center pieces ...

      And I'm fickle .. sometimes it my Kimber's .. other times my Sig's ... other times ... oh well you get the picture.

      Right this minute it's probably my Sig P226 X5. I've got .40 & 9mm barrels for it.



      By the way none of my guns are safe queens ...

      If I own 'em ... I shoot 'em.
