    That's a nice choice if I were to choose a revolver I would choose a Webley Fosbery in .455 or a Mateba Model 6 Unica in .44 magnum or .454 casull.

    I completely forgot about the dardick,those or very interesting.
    I heard the guy who made it at the time was also working on a machine gun that used the trounds.

    Phelps heritage 1 Much preferred over the BFR. Found one a while back but wasn't in the best of shape for the price.

    Wilson Combat Supergrade 45acp is a pretty good one.

    H&K Mark 23 45acp is another

    Or if you really want to go rare, google Merc M11

    and of course, who wouldn't want one of the two 45acp Artillery Lugers.

    I think the original Schofield revolvers are pretty cool. I've held one, never shot one, but they just ooze awesomeness.

    Yeah they are really cool,I would like them better though if they were in .45LC or .45 acp and double action. I guess that is what Webley's are for though.

    An uber-rare 1st Hand Ejector Model 4" S&W Target Triple Lock .44 Special. Never seen one in that barrel length, actually, but somewhere they exist. I'd settle for 5"; I have a 6.5" 2nd Model Hand Ejector from 1916, I'll be keeping that, but I never want another 6.5" N frame again.

    Also a 4" .38/.44 S&W Heavy Duty in .38 Spcl. High-Velocity caliber. I have a Transitional 5", but I really want a pre-war 4".

    I love 1911s, but pre-1950 S&W's are just so finely made you have to drool a bit over them.

    HK SP89. Doesn't get much better than that. Original Python would be a close second.

    3" smith and wesson 36 or 60 with target sights. I love the long j frames but hate the fixed sights.

    Didn't Westmoreland have a couple of Ivory Handled Browning High Powers he carried in the NAM?

    One of those or Longmire's .45, if it is a .45.

    I have to second the SP89 even though it is just a heavy 9mm pistol. I have or have owned most any other handgun I have wanted to own but the SP89 has eluded me due to its price.
