A nice Dan Wesson or Baer would be worth saving for.
Silver dollars are also fun to collect and are right at home in a gun safe!

I hear the DW's are nice. Almost bought a Pointman Seven a few years back and kind of wish I would have picked that up instead of the Kimber.

DW's are nice. I bought a Vbob a while back, and I've been so hapopoy with it, I haven't bought another gun since.

Geeze . . . I'm really going to be in the minority here . . . my vote would be for a nice 1851 Colt Navy . . . . I don't see anything like that on your list . . . .

What's Missing From My Lineup?
You seem to be missing:
.357 mag
10mm auto
.44 mag
.45 LC

Nice if you are either a collector or an accumulator.

Everyone needs a model 15 and a model 19, a good single action is also a must.
Give the wheel guns a chance. Also, a 625 is a blast and makes big holes.

I've got three wheel guns, including a Ruger Blackhawk. Does that qualify?

I don't see that listed on your first post, only the S&W model 67. I prefer the N-frames in 38/357.

Concealed Carry!!!

Okay, so it looks like my criteria might have changed somewhat! Illinois' concealed carry ban is ruled unconsitutional!!!!!

http://my.chicagotribune.com/#sectio.../p2p-73657166/

So, what do you suggest????????

I think you would like the Coonan. They are very fun guns!

Check out the ruger sr40c, I think it is cool, incredibly thin grip for a 14 round stack...like 1911 thin and the funky mag option with grip extensions that make it full size or allow you to shrink it down to a10 round (somebody might correct me, it could be 9) much smaller concealable gun, it is different, concealable, a semiauto...fun. Happy to hear about your win in IL!

From what I see, the only thing missing (if you really need it) is an excuse to buy another gun...
