Okay, so that may be kind of a confusing title, but here's what I mean...
This isn't about only being allowed to have "one" pistol, but rather what is your Holy Grail of pistols? What is the one pistol you'd practically
give up your first-born to get?
I hate this thread already...and I'm the OP/Author! Reason? Because I've tortured myself with this question for nearly 50 years!!
This just kills me (not like literally) too. I actually HAD the dang thing once, and I didn't realize what I had so I traded it on something I
thought was better. I could just smack myself in the head with a brick for that boneheaded move!
The pistol? A Colt Python 4" .357 blued, new, (sniff, sniff) in the wooden Colt display grade box (sobbing now).
The trade? It was a screaming deal at the time, and I still have it, but it pales in comparison to still having that Colt. I traded it for a brand
new Weatherby Mk V, chambered in .270 Weatherby magnum (essentially a .300 H&H belted magnum case behind a .270 cal bullet) with original Weatherby
scope. It is one of the original Sauer rifles from West Germany with the 9 locking lugs, not the later Howa models from Japan. The rifle is in mint
condition to this day, and it's a fantastic exhibition grade rifle (worth obscene amounts of money), but I'd still give my left nut to have that Colt
Who knew that Colt would become an absolutely priceless collectors piece? (dammit!)
To assuage some of my sorrows I did later manage to get a Dan Wesson .357 HB in 4", which is close, but it will never hold a candle to that Colt.
What's your Holy Grail of pistols?
