bucket list

Last week I was able to cross one off my bucket list, I picked up a first generation Charter arms blued 3" .44spl. Bulldog.

Anyone else have any luck with their bucket list recently?

Yes, over Christmas I picked up a Kimber Royal II from a family member. I always wanted a 1911. This one was taken to the range once.

The price was embarrassingly low

Nice find on the 3in 44 spl. I'd consider that, in about any brand, a bucket list gun. Been looking for years and haven't been able to come across one locally. So the search is still on. Enjoy.

I scored two W. German sig P220's for $1000 for both. I always liked the look of Sigs, think I might trade one for a W. German 226.

Few years back I got a Springfield Armory Operator 1911, love that thing. Actually I've gotten loads of guns off my bucket list, AK, AR, .44 mag and on and on. Still need about 4 more glocks and a ruger P97dc, plus some revolvers, shotguns, and rifles.
I don't collect guns, I accumulate them.

In December got a S&W .32-20 HE Target (from 1915). These are hard to find in the target version, shoots like a dream. A "little" honest wear

Yep, I've been wanting a 327 mag ever since they came out. Since all the manufacturers are dropping it, I picked up an SP101 a couple weeks ago.

I'd have to say my CZ 97b. Fired one ten years ago and swore I'd get my own at some point.

It's not that great in stock form, but with a few part swaps the gun gets transformed into sweetness.

I was able to find a S&W M17 (no dash). I had been looking for just the right one for about 4 years.

Well, I supposedly have a 40 Shield on the way, which is on my list, admittedly
pretty far down. The one that continues to elude me is the S&W Model
4013TSW Pre-rail. Its probably a good thing, because if I ever found one I
would start thinking of replacing all my 3rd Gens with TSW models.
Wait a minute...What??

Dan Wesson Guardian in 9mm, Sako Finlight in 25-06, or a Colt Walker would be nice. You didnt have to say it would actually happen.

Well, a "bucket list" would be dreams of a lifetime firearms. Colt snakes, S&W Mod.41, Luger, pre 1900 Colt SAA.
But my "short list" got shorter by one a couple weeks ago. scratched off the Ruger LCR

Picked up a couple, a Winchester Centennial 66 and a Super Blackhawk .44 Magnum. Have a few to go, but no funds, go figure. Guess I'll just have to keep chipping away at it.........
