What gun do you have on your mind, right now?

Post a picture of it, maybe a description. Every time you want another gun, post another picture.

This isn't about guns on your hit list. This is about sitting at work with nothing to do, looking up guns and thinking; "I really want this". Don't post all the guns you want, just the one at this exact instant.

Edit (3/11/13): This is also a thread about discussing the guns you want, right this instant. If you have experience with a gun someone wants, tell them about it.

Feel like this about a gun? This is the place to post it!

Also, Gtab, I have held a Linda (the pistol) it was loving enormous. The carbine is called the Terry, I believe.

There's one in the gun shop by me right now, and a regular at the gun shows always has a bunch of them, I think he was involved in their manufacture somehow.

They are probably the most tasteless guns possible. They seem to be made ok but I can't get past how ugly they are.

The guy at the show has a poster for the Linda carbine, very early 90's big hair woman holding the gun I think. I should see if he has any more of the posters next show.

Yeah. The slab upper and the pointy trigger guard and the nice grip altogether make it just utterly gorgeous. I give it a pass on the slide safety on account of 1. i will never have one 2. it is an auto weapon so gently caress it

if it had that safety on the bare chunk of that frame, though, it'd probably reach Critical Hotness and we'd all die from acute desire poisoning

It reminds me that I love the concept of a heavy steel frame high capacity pistol chambered in 5.7mm or 4.6mm with a nice slab side slide. The HK UCP was sort of looking like it might be that, but it never got off the ground. The Five-seveN is entirely too plasticy for my taste, but I love the idea of it.

Really I just want a blued Coonan chambered in 5.7x28mm with a 30 round magazine.

It was, but for a brief moment when I first saw a picture of it I thought it might be a steel frame gun.

That is way too big and .460 out of a "squat barrel" is going to suck in a few different ways.

Honestly, one of the John Ross S&W 500s would be a good start as well.



But I think that X-frames are kinda dumb and when loaded hot are unsafe (really easy to double under recoil) as well. Also this guy:

Rinkles posted:

But caseless still requires a powder charge. Moreover, it's hard to extrapolate what new advancements technological quantum leaps of this sort could leed to in the future. Although, of course, there are also a number of immediate advantages to caseless ammunition: lighter weight, efficient stacking and loading, no case ejection means a faster cyclic rate etc.

Keep in mind that no one wants faster cyclic rate. Guns already cycle too fast. The biggest benefit is weight, and the weight difference with/without brass is pretty negligible. The extra rounds you can get into a gun aren't enough to justify the change.

Frankly, there is still room for improvement with cased ammunition. Until that is totally done I don't expect we will have any serious caseless advances.

I just learned that Coonan made one of their 1911s chambered in .41 Magnum. So I want one of those.



(Can't find any photos of one, so that's the regular 357...which I also want.)

Sadly they didn't. They started working on them right before they went under. There are no plans to start that work up again.

The guys who are building the Coonans now don't even have the prototype as I understand it. I have a friend who lives near there who has just a few (9?) Coonans, all different variations and models. He brought them into the shop there one day and the guys were quite happy to see them, since most of them weren't guns they had ever actually seen before.

At this point they are so backed up with new production guns I doubt they will think about resurrecting the .41 mag idea for years, if ever.
