10 Handguns to Own Before You Die
A “bucket list” refers to a list of things one wants to accomplish before “kicking the bucket.” The phrase was popularized in the 2007 movie, “The Bucket List,” but there are references that predate the film.
If a bucket list can be things to do and places to go—why not guns to own? I’ve compiled a list of those I believe a handgun enthusiast should have at some time in his or her life.
I thought long and hard about whether to include this last gun on the list. Many shooters either love it or hate it. But few can dispute the fact that the Glock is the most revolutionary handgun of the last quarter century. It started the polymer fad, perfected the simple striker-fired operating system and is virtually indestructible. In the mid ‘80s when the semi-auto was replacing the service revolver, Glock stormed the law enforcement market before anyone realized it with the 9 mm Model 19. Today more men and women who wear a badge, from your local deputy sheriff to FBI Special Agents, carry.40 S&W-chambered Model 22s than any other model. Handgun aficionados who have never fired or owned a Glock owe it to themselves to see what all the fuss is about.
