What would you purchase and Why?

Not this again.... There are numerous threads about this topic. There is one in the handgun gallery section.

Assuming I had the money....

The Mateba Unica 6 Semi-Auto Revolver in .454casull, preferably with the longer barrel. I find the entire mechanism behind it to be fascinating, and the gun itself looks like a mechanical monstrosity. Shooting off the bottom of the cylinder combined with a semi-auto action works to tame the recoil and allows you to get back on target faster. I've also liked the .454 casull round for quite some time because of its power and I kinda like obscure rounds that aren't quite wildcat.

Although I can probably get this thing tagged as a C&R since over 50% of its value is due to it being discontinued and having a unique mechanism (The webley fosbery doesn't count). I just need to send in a letter to get a determination once I get enough money to buy the damn thing.

Oddly, I moved out of the state and my first two purchases were a S&W 642 and a Glock 30sf. Two on-roster pistols with 10 or less capacity.

If it makes it any better, I did buy them in parking lots. The 642 in Walmart and the Glock in Best Buy.

It doesn't matter if this thread has been rehashed multiple times. Let people bring it up once a month or week or whatever. The roster changes. Opinions change. New models come out. New members join. Old members take part in new discussions.

This is a topic that people should be able to talk about since it's perpetually changing.

As far as OLL, hicap mags and AW configuration legalities, there's no new info, the AW laws remain the same (for now) and facts are fairly fixed. Those would be dead horses. this may change as certain new products become available, but the roster is a beast of a different color.

The roster and related desires are alive and trotting.

However, once the roster falls, this will all be moot, and the thread will be "what's your next dream pickup?" instead.
