What new gun is at the top of your list- not a Kimber

Ok guys, what three handguns or rifles are at the top of your want list?

Here's mine. Only one of them is in the realistic realm of possibility this year though.

1. Webley .455. I really want one.

2. Colt Peacemaker, 1st Gen. Not in my price range, but you never know. A gen 2 would be ok.

3. Brown Bess, with Revolutionary War provenance. Expensive, but I think I will get one withing the next year.

I greatly improved my carry and self defense guns over the last year or two. I've also been able to pick up a couple of "bucket list guns" as well. Now I'm just looking for interesting things to shoot. Today my list would include the following... tomorrow might be different.

1) Kel-Tec .22 mag auto pistol ...it intrigues me...and I know a guy..
2) Sig Sauer MPX ...9mm black rifle...pistol...scary looking thing...
3) A Nighthawk, Wilson, Les Baer, Republic Forge ....made to order .45 ...

These are guns that I'd love to have but know monetarily unrealistic for me. It's so much fun to look at them though and I'd really love to shoot them if I was ever given the chance!

1. Wilson Combat Ultralight Carry Sentinel

2. Volkmann Precision Signature Series

3.Les Baer 1911 Hemi

I was lusting for your number 3 (Les Baer Hemi) myself, until about two months ago. I was taking my Ruger MKIII to my LGS for repairs and to get the barrel threaded well they had two LB Hemi's in the show case and I inspected, held and fondled one for about an hour. I didn't like the feel and look in person as much as I thought I would, it is still cool IMO but was not a slam dunk buy me now and I had the dough. May still get one someday?
