I no longer own mine, unfortunately, but yes, the 340PD is the perfect answer to this thread.

Glad I have a 12ga shotgun but don't care to shoot it.

My WILSON COMBAT CQB, that I had bought and sold almost 12 years ago.
At the beginning of this year I managed to buy it back ... and this time I'll keep it.

If you're going to collect, be careful not to get drawn to a piece that is not original, make sure it is a very good example and buy the gun not the story.

I have a Win. 52C target rifle, too heavy for me to shoot standing on my hind feet, don't like bench shooting. I also have a couple AR15s, just not my cup of tea to shoot for fun but have them just in case.

I will have to include my Marlin 1895 STP.

Just like the 45-70 guide gun only with a sixteen inch barrel. It is a beast!

I feel the same about the AR15. Great rifle ,serves a purpose,but not enjoyable for me. Can't stand the sound of the buffer while shooting.
The other is my S&W 642. Wonderful to carry,but not enjoyable to shoot very much.

None. If I don't enjoy shooting it, why keep it?

I got this SOCOM 16 when I came home from my last deployment, glad that I got it but I only take it to the range about 5 times a year.

I am glad I bought my 45-120 Sharps, but after 13 rounds, I look like my shoulder was in an MMA octagon. I have not yet been able to bring myself to fire a 14th round, its just WAY too painful. I am bruised from the back of my shoulder to my waist, its absolutely brutal

I'm with you on the M&P 10. Only bought it because I wanted it. After all what's cooler than a 30 cal AR?? I have a few other 30 caliber guns I'd use for hunting and if needed for serious long range shooting.

Despite the long and tall tales of the ones I had then let get away. Been collecting guns of all sorts since the early 70's. The ones I never parted company with and glad I still have. Are all my US GI guns. Buying my first 09 dated 03 Springfield in the mid 70's for then what was to high but I just had to have it for $90.00 despite the then going price was about 75. As far as the rest of my US GI guns. I very seriously doubt they will ever lose value.

The worst experience of a gun i had to have was a Ruger #1 in 456 win mag. Beautiful gun, heavy gun, just killed on both ends. Glad i sold to a guy who had never shot one. I bet he remembers me.

I'm not real fond of shooting my Colt Tier III Anniversary model. I'm used to a high hold and I get hammer bite every time I shoot it. It's the only 1911 that I have such a problem with. I'm definitely not going to get rid of it, though.

I bought 2 Russian molot vepr ak47s before they banned any further importations of them. Glad I did, both are built like tanks and are perfectly straight.

You must be holding it wrong. I have no problems with mine in .357 Herritt.

S&W CS40. Carry it because it is small, but hate it for what it does to one's wrists. let my BIL try it a couple weeks ago and he saw why the 1911 was a much better firearm in the way of handling. As for milspec 1911s biting, my SAI one has bit me with hammer bite before. This time it was slide bite that got my BIL.

A few years ago, I bought a S&W 69 .44 magnum. Shot it mostly with .44 special ammo. I really liked it, but didn't shoot it a lot. Then I got the urge to get a S&W 329PD .44magnum. After 2-3 rounds of magnum loads, I went with .44 special which was a lot tamer. It is really easy to carry out in the desert, but I don't think I'll shoot magnum loads anymore.

A 16Ē carbine chambered in 45-70 makes for quite the angry levergun, a beast for sure!


My wifeís shoulder was destroyed after 5 rounds. 45-70ís donít have time for weak hosts.


As you well know, itís a hard hitting round. The bullet alone (middle) is nearly the same size as an entire .45ACP cartridge.

It definately is a beast.

I like it and am glad that I have it. But it is very low insofar as round count is concerned. Kind of like a fire extinguisher. Good to have if you need it.

How about the guns that you are glad that you own? But are really not much fun to shoot.
Ruger 5.5 in bbl .44 magnum New Model Super Blackhawk Dragoon Grip. Nice revolver but with full power .44 mag loads the square back trigger guard mashes your knuckles. Not fun.

Star B 9mm Luger. This black sheep, red-headed step-child of a 1911 is fun to shoot, but it's also a jam-o-matic. Fun/not fun.

Glad to own both though.

Wow, your Trapper is indeed very compact, looks sawed off compared to my 18.5Ē SBL.
