If money were no object, what gun would you buy?

My hubby & I were looking at the pair of 1911s that are made from the meteorite and are selling for 4.5 million. We agree that, if money were no object, they would not be the guns we'd go buy (although they'd be cool to own). So the question is, if money and availability were no object, what gun would you buy?

Gorgeous. This may have been a bad idea. Now my hubby is drooling over the Barrett rifle!

I think I'd like a Model 1921 Thompson, and if there were a few bucks left over, an M3 Grease Gun.

I just saw an advertisement from Wilson showing a black, double-stack 9x19mm 1911 with green fiber optic sights. Most beautiful gun I've ever seen.

My guess is 3 to 4 thousand dollars, but if I could...

When money is no object you don't just buy something over the counter. You sit down with artists like Cabot Guns, Stan Chen and Chuck Rogers and you create something special. In the mean time I'd pick up a pair of Kimber Gold Combat Limited Editions just to hold me over until my one of a kind dream was being created.

I've got my eye on a Sig P227 Tacops.

If money were no object, I wouldn't be wasting my time buying an overpriced gun.

Being the gun pervert that I am, I would be hard-pressed to answer this question. I could never limit myself to a monogamous relationship with just one firearm...
