Wouldn’t it be neat

So, I’ve been fondly thinking of items/services I’d like the gun industry to produce. Things I want and why, basically.


I want Wolf to produce a run of 9mm Largo ammo so I can actually take my Destroyer Carbine to the range without wincing every time I pull the trigger and see $1 fly downrange.

I want Aguila to figure out a way to shoehorn that 60 grain bullet into a .22 WMR. Actually, I’d like any manufacturer to do that.

I want someone to neck down a .32 case to take a 40 grain bullet from a .22 WMR. Make the round hit 1300 FPS from a 3 inch barrel and call it the .22 Lightspeed.

Would someone please make the .38 S&W load with the 200 grain bullet again? The British .38/200 was an awesome round.


Get Marlin to make a bolt action carbine with a 16 barrel and a fixed magazine that can loaded via stripper clips/single rounds…chambered for .45 ACP. Like I said in the Survival Carbines post, I don’t know what I’d use it for, but I’d buy two.

Somebody make a new gun chambered in 9mm Largo.

Get Walther to scale up the design of the P22 for small centerfires like the .32 ACP, or better yet, my “new” .22 Lightspeed.

I want EAA to make a version of the Bounty Hunter single action with a 3 inch barrel and no ejector rod. Keep the plow handle grips though. I’d buy 3.

I really, really want someone to make a double action revolver about the size of the SP101 that’s chambered for .40 S&W and uses full moon clips to hold the rounds. Come on. Tell me that wouldn’t be awesome.

That’s pretty much the sum of my “wouldn’t that be neat” list.

Please wait...
