What 5 firearms would I purchase, should price nor practicality be an issue?

I’m with Robb, I tend to gravitate toward functionality (i.e., carry guns, practical rifles, and some plinkers). But guns I want were price not an object and I was tossing all practicality out the window:


1 – GE Minigun. At six thousand rounds per minute and with only one pre-86 model that pops up for sale every once in a while at the price of about a quarter million bucks, I can think of no more efficient and expensive way to turn money into noise.


2 – 10/22 suppressed pocket rifle with a Norrell trigger pack, making it a machine gun. A much less expensive way to turn money into not so much noise. SQUIRREL!!!

that's just sexy

3 – Tactical over under short barreled shotgun. Because it just looks damn sexy.

the sound of marketing

4 – The Glock 18. Utterly and completely useless for anything practical but referred to as Glock’s greatest marketing tool. I want one because I cannot have one. And, having shot one, it’s darn fun.

From 2010 NRA Annual Meeting

5 – Mare’s Leg. Again, useless but I can’t help but want one. I’d put a rail and an EOTech on it.

    I’d put an H3 buffer on that to slow down the cyclic rate.

  2. ben Says:

    …and to reduce felt recoil.

  3. Kevin P. Says:

    Why do you call the Mare’s Leg useless? If the oversized loop for cycling the action were reduced, it would make a nice and compact rifle for the car and other uses.

    Because all manner of things do any job it can do better.

    GAU-8 Avenger? Anyone?

  6. John Farrier Says:

    I’d like to own a 1903 Springfield and an 1892 Winchester. I’m not sure about the other three.

  11. Bill Says:

    GAU-8 Avenger was my very first thought and choice!

    Can I have the weapon carrier with it please?

    Everything else would be just gravy.

    If you aren’t familiar with the Avenger, look it up! They built this really cool carry vehicle around it!

  12. Swamp Thing Says:

    Don’t know if it counts but an RPG. Don’t know why but I’ve always wanted to shoot one. Recent Mythbusters episode just reinforced the desire.

  13. Chris P. Says:

    …I would only need that mini-gun if confronted by an alien with the ability to cloak himself…otherwise, a bit of overkill…

    I can but I can’t afford my own A10 warthog, M1 Abrams, or MIG 29

  15. Fyooz Says:

    A TDE AutoMag in .41

    KelTec SU16 rebarreled for 6.5mm Grendel

    Any Barrett in .50

    my pipedreams are modest

  16. Mike LaForge Says:

    How about that new li’l 45-70 Gatling from the Shotshow?
    Any of the Barrett .50 cals.
    Mare’s Leg in .45 Colt just a’cause.
    Browning Hi-Power…. and a Sweet 16, again, just a’cause.

  17. MAJ Mike Says:

    For me:
    1 — MP44 with lots of 7.92 kurz ammo,
    2 — Cal 50 “Ma Duece” (everyone loves their Ma),
    3 — MP40
    4 — Moisin Nagant tricked out in sniper mode,
    5 — PPSh submachine gun.

    Yeah, I know. Dull and boring, but these are part of the History I so love to study.

    I’d take a quad-mount ma-deuce on the roof of my SUV (I’m counting it as 1 gun), and a vulcan from an A-10 warthog.
    Toss in an MP44, a Kriss Vector, and an XM25 grenade launcher and I’d be all set.
