Thanks

The Browning Hi-Power and S&W 952 are two of the best pistols ever built, in my opinion.

Just curious? How do you store them without causing damage/scratches? Do you individually case each one? I am safe challenged.
Sorry I missed this question.

I store them in a room on shelving. While its tight, none of them really ever touch each other, so scratches are avoided.

Thank you for the pics. I do have a question. Everyone keeps asking you which one you like the best. Which pistol that you own do you like the least?

That's a good question. Al, you're certainly right as far as 1911s are concerned.

As far as non-1911s go, I guess it would be easy for me to say the Hi-Point or Jimenez. They're definitely in the running for sure, but I don't expect much from them. The Walther P22 was a big disappointment from a quality and reliability standpoint.

I would expect that about the Hi point, that is disappointing about the Walther.

The P22 is cheaply built and unreliable with all but the hottest 22lr ammo.

Others have had luck with them, but many have the same experience as me.

That is a crazy collection. Is there a method to the madness? Lots of quality stuff, but junk too. The S&W 952 is sooooo gorgeous.

I just like the full range of handguns from cheap to expensive.

Yes, the 952 is an incredible gun. Its got my vote as one of the best 9mms ever built.

No nobody is kidding you! A person who truly loves fine handguns. It is a collection and a mighty fine collection at that. I love the Fusion Brian. It looks as if this guys is him.

I like the Star Model B 9mm. They are sleepers. Very accurate in the right hands. Just because a gun does not hold a huge price tag does not mean it is of poor quality. I would carry that model and have been accurate out to 20 yards with it. Until you have experienced the gun please do not bash it. Also in my book yours is a looker.

Unfortunately, Llamas and/or Stars are not true 1911s. As you can see, my Star Model B is not in my 1911 pic.

They're close, but not quite there.
