    Show us in your private firearm collection, which one of yours deserve more credit than what people give them?

    Ruger Security Six.

    Ruger's last generation revolver. It has the near identical design as to GP100, but slightly smaller frame and half lug barrel. Which I prefer better than my GP100.

    Walther P5 - born of the same trial that created the SIG 225 and the HK P7

    Multi-pump air rifle (this one being a .177 Daisy). They usually get laughed off as nothing more than toys because they're inexpensive and don't have the noise and recoil of a .243, but I've made many one-shot kills on rats with mine. They're very quiet, no recoil, inexpensive, lightweight, and I can shoot in the yard without bothering the neighbors due to the lack of noise if I don't have the time or money for going to the range to shoot other guns. It can be used for small game, you just need to stalk a little closer than you would with a break barrel. It could also be used as a survival gun. With no recoil, it's a very inexpensive way to work on your trigger/breath control. Larger calibers also available. Multi-pump air rifles are more fun and utility than most people realize.

    Honestly, I don't own one but I'd love to...

    Makarovs are highly underrated for sure!

    .45 ACP Baby Eagle. A very solid platform. Thousands of rounds down range with no problems. Drop dead reliable and accurate......and at the time that I bought it, fairly inexpensive.

    CZ Scout .22lr. Highly accurate and compact little gun.

    All the rest of mine are highly rated.

    I am going with my CZ52 pistol. Its a little heavy but that is one of the reasons it is so reliable. I don't think it can be broken.

    Hard to decide.
    I would say CZ vz. 58, but I like to dig the underrated firearms in general :)

    I ended up with an AMT backup in .380 a while back and I can't believe how well it shoots. Maybe I got "the" reliable one, but it is a great little gun. It is much heavier than an LCP or P3AT, but the extra weight makes it a smooth shooter.

    All that said I still carry my J frame, but it is nice to know I have a choice.

    I think the 2-3 inch S&W J Frame revolvers are greatly underated. It seems that most people look at then as hard kicking and hard to shoot and only good for a close up last ditch double action pocket gun.

    When in fact even new shooters can quickly master the little gun and fire it effectively both double action and single action and at some distance.

    Even when standing and blasting double action at distances, like 50+ yards, the little gun's preformance is only limited by the shooter's ability (5 misses).

    Add a Crimson Trace laser to the gun and it's even easier to shoot.:)
