    Thanks

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

    ...the Walther P88 isn't too shabby either.

    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?

    I going to guess the Tauri as far as the 1911's are concerned.

    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.

    Now that room and shelving would certainly be worth a pic or two :)

    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.
