S&W 929 Jerry Miculek.

Never thought I'd buy anything close to a grand new. Worth it.

Could be my .357 No.1



Or it might be this one that's been in the family for awhile.

My grandfather had model 37 410 it was a great shooting gun that took a lot of game no telling how much. He did not shoot much over 16 ga shotguns for some reason.

thats what i look for in a firearm, so my blued GP100 is my flagship.

I'm not much for cosmetics but those are nice grips. What are they ??? I have a Match Champion I think would look nicer if I sanded off the checkering but yours wears it well.

I may have to start new flagship categories for my ever-growing collection. Things like country of origin, type: semi-auto handgun, revolver or mil-surp or modern rifle!

Out of respect, I won't respond to the Q until I've read all the posts.

Four pages ... this may take some days ..

Ok, Ok, here's a hint,
based on my current kit.

Ruger SR9c.



But I'll soon trade it for an LC9s.

Sometime during that transition
will come a RAR in .223.

Ok, back to reading ...

Flagship...to me it's the Colt Trooper MkIII that was under the tree on my 17th Christmas. I had been pestering Santa all year for a Ruger Security Six. Santa had a better idea!

Haha. If my gun collection is a battle fleet, and my guns are individual ships, then the flagship would easily be my Springfield M1A Loaded. Both because it's my single most expensive firearm (bought it brand new about 10 years ago) and because I thoroughly enjoy it every time I shoot, clean, or just plain handle it. It's a classic beauty in a powerful caliber.

The battlecruiser of the fleet (the one sent to foreign ports on official state business, shuttling of VIPs and such - you know, the ship that, while perhaps not the most powerful, but the one with the prettiest paint, the gleaming deck, the handsomest captain, and the most spit-and-polish crew) is my Colt 1911XSE. Also bought at roughly the same time as the M1A.

My "museum ship" - the one that no longer sees action, but which will never be officially decommissioned - is my Arminius Warrior .22 revolver. This was my dad's gun and as such will be the very last gun in the fleet should Hillary start taking away our guns.

Add to that, the "pirate ships" of my fleet - the ones actually sent most into harm's way, and thus not pretty, but reliable, battle ready, and experienced - would be my Glock 22 and Mossberg 500
