Another meme, in this case, Robb Allen's Sharp as a Marble - Your 5 most wanted.  Guns, that is.
What 5 firearms would I purchase, should price nor practicality be an issue?
My choices:
  1. Ma Deuce.  Of course.  
  2. M1928 Thompson Submachine gun.
  3. BAR.  Not sure I care which variant.  
  4. Sharps carbine with a coffee grinder in the butt.  Just because the very thought makes me giggle.
  5. Ferguson rifle.  Which would hang as a trophy.
On a daily basis those last two might change; I might, for example, really, really want a low serial number M1911.  Or a good-condition M1Garand that hasn't been butchered "civilianized".  Or a GAU19 to go with the M2HB.  (Do they make progressive reloaders in .50BMG?)  Maybe an Officer's Fusil, with accoutrements, instead of the Ferguson.

The first three are definitely both "price and practicality no object" items, since I'd have to move to a state where a man could actually own full-auto guns.

I want my Ma Deuce sticking out the end of a P-38 Lightning.

Well, that'd be four Ma Deuces, and a 20mm cannon, so that's your five...
...not that there's anything wrong with that.
