A friend recently asked me about my fascination with the SAA, specifically the colt single action army of 1873. I replied that it was one of the most influential handguns in history, which sparked a conversation that asked, what others would make your top 3? I had to struggle for the top 3, top ten, easy, top 5 not too bad, but top 3 is much harder for me. I would say the SAA, the 1911 and the glock. The SAA because it was the first really mass produced cartrige firing hand gun that spawned the revolvers into the modern age. The 1911 and its variations for similar reasons, and the glock as the first really modern striker fire. What are your top 3?
