      Whats Your Awkward Dream Gun?

      So everybody has their personal favorite firearms and brand loyalties.

      In my experience though everybody has a gun they would be curious to own but don't because it is unpractical or pricey or there are pistols you would rather have before it.

      Whats your awkward dream gun?

      Mine would probably be a Magnum Research Jericho Baby Eagle II (it's from my favorite gun fighter's show) or the Desert Eagle (highly impractical firearm for my purposes)

      Well, I'd like to see if the Boberg XR9-S really works consistently enough to bet a life on.

      And I've always wanted to fire a Bazooka or RPG at something big that'd go "BOOM!"

      Steve, I had never heard of that gun before. Upon researching I can only say what a crazy pistol??? The way the magazine is, its like backwards almost. Cool little gun. Definitely what I had in mind for awkward pistol.

      I was watching an episode of pawn stars and they bought this hand cannon made of brass or something and it had a wooden handle. I thought it was kinda cool looking.

      It actually looked like a cannon off a ship or something the way it was shapped. They made a bet one of the empolyees couldnt hit anything with it. They loaded what looked like a large steel bearing or something into it and shot it. Had a hole in it for a fuse and stuff.

      I don't know about awkward but I would really like to have .338 lapua with a really good scope. I always wanted to go out west and do some of those 1000 yard shots. Maybe on a big bull elk or muley.

      I've got another one...
      A long, long time ago, when the Martin B. Retting gun store was still in New York State but about to move to Culver City, California, Mr. Retting advertised an antique, Kentucky-style rifle that had been built with what seemed to be a miniature Hall's Patent breech-loading system. Retting opined in his catalog that it may have been the original model that Hall had submitted to the US Patent Office, later rescued from the fire that consumed almost all of the early patent models. He had it for sale for, IIRC, $2,000.00. I did some careful research, and I became convinced that Mr. Retting was correct in his assessment.
      I had just got my very first job, in a New York City charity hospital, working as a clinic clerk at 75¢ an hour. (See: It was a very long time ago!) I applied to my mother and step-father for a loan, explaining my research and the inestimable value of the rifle. Although they did indeed have more than sufficient funds to lend me $2,000.00, even at a repayment rate of 75¢ an hour, they refused—of course.
      Shortly afterward, I left home and moved to Los Angeles, California. One day I found myself in the US History section of the Los Angeles County Museum, in Exposition Park, and there, grandly displayed in a glass showcase, was the supposed-Hall Kentucky rifle. The note card accompanying it stated that it had been given to the museum by Martin B. Retting, and that it had been researched and judged to be authentic. Of course, now it was literally priceless.
      And I could've had it for a measly $2,000.00!
      So now I want that gun!

      I'll post another one to give an example for some to follow.

      Anyone ever heard of a H&K VP-70??? A very desired gun on my list, however, it is hard to find them and also impractical as finding magazines and new parts is also impossible and I only own guns that I can shoot.

      The Bren Ten is also a coveted pistol of mine that I also don't own for the same reasons as the VP-70

      Whitney Wolverine,,, Original or Reproduction.

      I've wanted one of these since I saw one as a kid,,,
      My Uncle had one of the shiny ones with the white grips.

      I would even settle for one of the new Polymer framed pistols,,,
      I just think it would bring out my inner Buck Rogers.

      I do have a weakness for space-age guns,,,
      It comes from growing up in the 50's.

      Alright, alright... Mine isn't terribly awkward, or dreamy, but I love it and it is completely unrealistic for me to own.



      The Para Warthog is a double-stacked .45 with a 3" barrel. I love, love, love it! But, I'd have no control over this little beast.
