Folks,

I'm sitting here an wasting my time perusing various sources and letting my imagination run wild...

Please Sturm Ruger, do a good copy of the Kel-tec PF-9, with the safety and action of the P-95 and enough length for me to get 3 fingers on the grip under the trigger guard. Ruger already holds the market for paranoid security companies, with their exposed hammer and manual safeties, except for SIG 2022 and we all know who wins on cost. S&R might also put a longer grip and barrel on it's LCR, so I get something lighter than the 3" SP101.

Please S&W bring out a fantastic plastic replacement for the CS semi-autos, see finger comments above on the grip and actions.

Please EAA, I'd like to see an M-88 before I buy one.

Please all mfgs, dovetail the front sight on all guns so night sights for my ancient eyes are cheap and available without $200 in machining!

Thank you,
Geoff

It's October and the Christmas season has begun at Wal*mart.
Unfortunately, I am in a strange limbo state of employment and have little to do, but stew, weather has me bambozzled too hot or too wet.

Did get in some range time. Want to go again.

But I can think of a few things I'd like to see at the next Shot Show:

A five pound pistol caliber semi-auto carbine with a locked breech in 10mm.

A small flat automatic with a DA/SA trigger system with enough grip for 3 fingers.

A long magazine for my LCP with 10 rounds and a grip for 3 fingers (no the Kel*tec doesn't work.)

A four inch Ruger LCR in .22 LR and .38/357.

And outside the world of firearms:

Congress exempting light aircraft mfgs from liability, if you need to sue someone, sue the FAA who licensed and supervised the manufacturer.

Congress making up to 24 hours of rental flying and fuel fully tax deductible to encourage a reserve of qualified pilots. Throw in basic and advanced training too!

Congress cutting the corporate tax rate to ZERO! To encourage employment not unemployment!

Geoff
Who needs to lose another 7 lbs to get to goal one in his current self-improvement plan.

It's that time of the year again.

I would like to see a plastic frame .380 pistol with a tip up barrel and DAO action light enough for the arthritic to pull.

Geoff
Who notes Ruger made a 3" LCR with adjustable sights.

It's that time of the year again. Many new guns including the LCP II with hold open. Single stack 9mms including the Ruger LC9s Pro which I am considering.

I'd like to see a return of the Beretta 70s multi-barrel pistol, with a plastic frame in .22 LR.

I'd like to see the original Colt Woodsman, in a modern plastic frame with the small size and short barrel.

Geoff
Who notes many interesting guns have appeared and other disappeared from the manufacturers, in the last couple of years.

Which Beretta had multi barrels? Are you maybe thinking of the HK-4?

I'm in for a return of the Beretta Model 70, but I'll take an aluminum frame like the original had. The Model 70 was a gem of a pistol.

I think for a while you could get the 70 in an either or both barrels setup--short 3.5 or 4" barrel, and a long 6" one. But I suspect that frequent swapping of the barrel would soon wear the interface to looseness.

I like my 70 a lot. Every time I shoot it I'm reminded how much more pleasant it is to shoot than my Walthers. What a delightful little gun!

Agreed, lighter in weight, grip was much more ergonomic, more reliable. Single action triggers often sucked, but those could be improved upon. One of these days I'm going to get a model 70 in .22lr. I had a .32 ACP and thoroughly enjoyed shooting it even though it was expensive to shoot.

I'm looking at my wish list from the eighties:

"I wish someone besides Colt would make a decent 1911."

"I like these new civilian AR-15's, but the carry handle sure makes it cumbersome to mount an optic."

"The staggered magazine on the S&W Model 59 makes a lot of sense. I wonder if it will catch on?"

".44 Magnum...the most powerful handgun in the world. I wonder...?"

"Wow, I really like this little Midway USA company I'm seeing advertise in the gun mags. Hope they make it."

"If this Ruger Mark II catches on I may have to get one some day...I hear it's a bear to take down and reassemble though."

Hi-Power pistol, well made, 9mm, with carry-melt treatment, commander length slide and frame, and standard length grip.

Captain Gyro gives me hope. If it seems cool enough, someone should eventually make it. :)

No there was a Jaguar in .22LR with two barrels, 4" and 6" or so. The Jaguar became the Model 70 and then 70s.

The interchangeable barrel model had the slide cut in the front and the front sight mounted to the barrels.

I couldn't find an on line reference and when I saw one years agone I wasn't interested.

Geoff
Who regrets passing up a .22LR M70 in the 1980s, sigh.

I had a toy Beretta 70 as a kid--it was full-size--that shot those rubber suction darts. Couple years ago I bought another one off eBay. I'm gonna lay my model-fu skills on it someday and airbrush it to look real, and then hang it on the wall.

My own wishlist...

--Colt: Bring back the REAL Model M, not some POS lookalike knockoff from a third-party.
--Springfield: Bring back PW9108L, the "G.I. 45." I'd like to retire Old Slabsides to protect the memories attached to it, and I'm not totally sure about the Rock Island "GI Spec" as an expendable-priced WWII-ish replacement.

DB
Who wagers that when your sidearm is all you have to remember your first love by, YOU'd probably be overprotective of that gun too.
