    Like a lot of shooters...I collect certain types, brands, and models of guns. I am partial to older guns in general but my two collections are S&W Model 64 revolver variants and Winchester .22's. Sort of odd choices but that's where my obsession lies. I started on the S&W's because out of all the handguns I've ever owned my first Model 64 was as close to perfection as I've owned. ( My opinion of course ) Later I discovered there were other, somewhat more rare variations such as 2", 3", round butt, pencil barrel, etc. also, it was a type that I could afford to collect.
    The Winchester .22's began with my old favorite .22, a Model 69A. It was stolen years ago and I've been trying to make up for it ever since...and just couldn't seem to stop. How about you guys ? Why did you choose what you chose ?

    Old surplus military from around the world.
    And "paramilitary" stuff.
    And general stuff that strikes my fancy.

    Ones that go "bang" and fit under my shirt/jacket, preferably with a .45 in there someplace.

    Only black guns, the kind that are not used for hunting. I have more ak's than anything else right now, but I'm working on a few more ar's at the moment.

    Whatever strikes my fancy. AR's (if/when the prices normalize),handguns, hunting rifles. I'd like a .357 revolver with a 4-6" barrel next. Probably going to get a muzzleloader soon too.

    That's the great thing, there are so many tangents one can go down in this hobby.

    1 is unique
    2 is a pair
    3 is a set
    4 or more is a collection

    I have a set of Remington 597's and a pair of 10/22's making a collection of Liberty Training Rifles :D

    My handguns are a collection of unique guns.
