    A little boring, but for me it's .30-06. I've never had one but always look at them and think it's a handy looking cartridge. Nothing fancy.

    I've got a hankering for a couple Winchester 1895's, one in 30-40 Krag, the other in 405.

    An old hammer double in 450-400. Still kicking myself for buying some cool Winchester M70's instead of the double at the same show... LOP was a bit short so I passed... And kicking myself for holding out on a 577 double a few months back that I should have bought just for fun;)

    And too many others:)

    At DSC a few years ago there was this H&H Royal. I was busy darkening out one of the zero's in the $200K price tag when security showed up. Mostly I remember being escorted away than the actual details of the rifle.

    One gun I used to drool over and would still like to own is a Belgian made Browning Superposed, Midas grade. Out of my pay grade still, there's one with two sets of barrels on gunbroker for 24,500.

    Bought a 70th Anniversary Edition in 257 a few years back. A little to fancy to hunt with so it's basically a range queen but it's a great shooter

    An English 20 gauge SxS, built on a small Webley Screw-grip action, with Southgate ejectoctors and in it’s oak and leather case. The weight should be a tad under 6 lbs

    Even when you exclude doubles, there are always more than the bank account will allow....and then of course there has to be another safe too!!!
