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.
The Walther PP was the first successful double-action semi-auto and served the militaries of Germany and other European countries from the ‘30s through World War II and well into the 1980s. My choice for this listing is the short PPK variation as it is the most popular, is still made today and, after 80 years, is still considered by many to be the perfect gentleman’s carry pistol. Of course, 007 carried one, though some argue he was not a real person. There are many more modern pocket pistols around today, but a Walther PPK is a piece of history.
