    Over the years I've been lucky enough to own a fair few guns and among them some unusual, some sought after and some collectable guns. I've now gotten to the point where there arent actually that many guns left that I hanker after, so the question is what do you aspire to owning and why??
    For me it would be...

    Sportsmatch GC2, a classic gun that is still very capable
    Venom 77 Mamba, a guy in our club had one years ago with every possible extra including a venom stock, stunning to look at and to shoot.
    Nick Murphy Zenith, Im a sucker for hand built precision tools:eek:
    The new ISP Airstream Mk3.....WOW!!!
    and thats about it really:)

    Another Weihrauch springer,probably a 97k in either a Paul Wilson or GinB target stock which had been well sorted by a Bonnie and Clyde HFT tuning kit in .
    A Ripley Elite.loved the one that I shot belonging to Ian Hartford when I had a go at MAD.
    A Daystate CRX.
    A Steyr but it would have to be in a Paul Wilson or similar stock as I just don't like the standard ones.
    Any other Daystate especially Petes new Mk4 because that stock it beautiful.:D

    The only gun I would realy want is a British Army L1A1 SLR,

    This is because my dad was the first British soldier to be issued with one, But as they have been banned I will have to settle for a single shot FAL when i get my FAC

    77k venom in airmasters stock + mach1 trigger and venom silencer

    a carbontec walther would be nice

    a tiger stripe walnut stock for the other walther

    300SU and a 600 FWB

    a p70 in a benchrest stock might tempt me

    venom mach 1 :D

    i'd like to take a zenith or ripper for a run as well sometime.

    A Zenith would be the only other air rifle I'd have ontop of what I've already got. As I don't have time to shoot my airguns as much as I'd like any FAC stuff is out of the window for the time being.:( But a nice pair of Purdeys for clays and maybe an AI .338 Lap would be top of the list if I win the Euro millions and retire early!:D

    The short all stainless GC2 sportsmatch made for Tom Walton after his went pop would be nice as a collectable.

    Dunno, but i'm awaiting on a contract with the ye/nay being Monday, and quite by coincidence i've just found out March have a UK distributer...;)

    Then there's that and the Canon 7d and the new 1ds mk4 around the corner, 85mm f1.2, 90mm TS, and a few other things that might go into the mix, like chipping the beemer and 1750 case... oh and xmas around the corner

    Actually Don, thinking about it, where did you put those numbers??? :D

    Missed it's
    In terms of airguns, theres nothing I really fancy that'll outshoot what I've already got, well not in my hands anyway,.
    The Mk3 FTR can be as accurate as an accurate thing, the HW100s soon to be th, is slick,smooth and again very accurate, the AAs410c in 0.22 is a perfect hunting tool, the TX200hc, is a very capable springer.
    So to spend silly money on a Steyr,a Walther or vmach'ing the TX, to me is money best not spent at the moment.

    Got a nice Rohm twin top pistol, and a Gamo compact, so pistols are sorted.

    I fancy adding to the umarex CP88 and Colt 1911 with a Beretta fs92 and a Desert Eagle.

    And if in 6 months, my NTSC full membership is advanced from probationer, then a couple of rimmies,a Ruger 10/22 and possibly a GSG5 ,and a 357/38 Rossi,Marlin or Winchester underlever rifle will be on the list.

    LOL :D Yes it's mine now. I was really surprised when Tom said he would be willing to sell it, and even more surprised when he offered me the Ripley at a price that I just couldn't refuse as well!

    If you should happen to venture down towards Cornwall, give me a shout and you can have a go with it if you like.
