Good eye! Apt advice too.
Private to Private sale ?
I have never heard it put that way before,
I have heard;
Private sale = neither the seller or buyer, is an F.F.L. / Dealer.
How about this one? Practical use (unlike many other types of gun) and multi-faceted trigger (for consumer fetishism)
Good tool for UK women to dry the hair on their legs.

If you are adding to you collection, any gun of interest works. However, if you have one or more roles you would like to fill, it might be easier for suggestions to be offered, easy you will get everyone’s wish list or current druthers. Aside from those of historic or operating interest in my collection, each gun I own fill one or more roles. However, I find I gravitate toward those guns that are more natural for handling/aiming for me; regardless of recommendation, I can tell in a minute whether a gun will fit as a candidate for me....but then my tryout wish list is Long.
My wife got a Bersa Thunder .380 plus as her EDC. It is very accurate. I love the sights. They make it in 9mm also.
I have a G19 and G26 in Gen 4, and I like them, but I want to upgrade to 3 dot night sights. The guns work and feel fine, but I can't seem to get a consistent sight picture. Old eyes, I guess.
I bought the G26 F2F from a friend of mine who was moving to New York for a preaching gig for $350 and it came with 300 rds of ammo. I would have given him more, but I didn't have it at the time.
If you’re looking for a compact .45 I recommend the Springfield xds. Quick mag plate swap and you’ve got a full size grip. The recoil is remarkably manageable for such a compact gun.
I can vouch for the rhino. We had a snub nose rhino st the rental counter at the gun store I used to work at. The trigger pull is amazing, and the recoil barely noticeable. Extremely accurate.
any thoughts about durability? back in the 80s I shot IHMSA and one of my buddies had the top revolver brand-the Dan Wesson. the most accurate wheelgun on the planet. Except one day I was spotting the 200 yard ram targets and I thought someone had slapped my face. Gun went out of time and I got a cheek full of shavings. He had three DW revolvers, one to compete with while the other two were going to or from the repair depot
I can’t speak to the durability. My only experience with it was playing at the range.
Dan Wesson’s are awesome. I’m not much of a revolver guy but I love their 1911’s. I was torn between the v bob and an ed brown special forces. I ended up going with the brown.
I have a G26. Even with the short grip, the recoile not noticible to me, but I have small hands. I like that is conceals well with 10+1, but takes a G17 or G19 mag which I carry as slim spares, but at times I carry with a G17 mag and an xgrip adapter which makes it feel like a larger, more comfortable grip. I also have a CT laser on mine. Funny thing, and not sure why other than maybe luck of the draw, but I am more accurate with my G26 than my G19. It also, for me, a natural pointer. I also use a clipdraw and a siderlock (I used to use a triggerblok). It’s not much bigger than a small revolver and is very convienient for travel. If you install a siderlock or triggerblok, always train and use them so it becomes unconscious in use.
Btw, I liked the triggerblok concept for DAs and made my own for my S&W and my Kahr.
If I was missing anything id say it was a pistol AR or a revolver. Or a new carry gun
Everybody has their wish list; mine is a Wesley MK VI in .455 with Easter rebellion provenance and an early model Scholfied model 3, though I may break down and get a Cimmaron version.
Sounds like he wants to start his own army.
I was just airing an errant thought on the OP actually. Speaking as someone who doesn't know one end of a firearm to the other, it sounds like an awful lot of hardware to yours truly?
Different guns and cartridges are suited for different purposes; though many of us would love the one gun fits all and the magic bullet long an object of search. I put myself through college subsistence hunting and hunting to make money, gun smithing and did exceptionally well, at least in my mind. I eventually accumulated over 60 guns, many for different hunting tasks, some I built, some inherited, and some for historic or mechanical interest. I also had a collection of over 100 custom made knives, swords, and medieval weapons; scary to none gun owners, eh? I am now down to about 15 multi role guns and a smaller collection overall. One gun, my AR15 fills multiple rolls by swapping uppers. I suspect there are others posting here with similar and even larger collections. Some people collect stamps; I don’t. I have a sizable collection of bamboo fly rods as well, part because I build them and part because I am in the search for the elusive perfect taper. I am a fly rod hugger...Lol.
With a hand gun, a semi auto rifle, a pump shotgun, and a deer rifle?
Needs more dakka and a better supply chain
Guns are specialized sporting instruments. Different guns are used for different things. For example, each type of hunting (while a more generalized gun might work for most) is best with a specific gun. There are guns that are designed for different sports--like 25m rapid fire pistol shooting, or a 1,000 yard rifle. It's just a matter of choice, money, etc. For example, for me, my 12-gauge pump shotgun is adequate for my small game/bird needs. For others, they might want a 20-gauge over/under double barrel set up for upland game (bird hunting), a 12-Gauge pump set up for turkey and a 12-G pump set up for waterfowl.
It's like having more than one set of golf clubs.
All that I feel that I'm missing is a .22 DA revolver. Just looking for the right deal.

The one called the Second Amendment and the First Amendment.
