Default What's on your wish list for 2022??

At year end I look at my gun collection and try to come up with a plan to upgrade some and decide which I would cast off if a more interesting or better example came along. I have a self imposed limit on the total of 30 (up from 25 a few years back ).
2021 was a active year, sold 8 and bought 4.
My Wish list for 2022 is pretty short:
1. Lefever 12ga 30" Grade C damascus with fancy filing on the breech end of the barrels.
2. AH Fox XE 20ga 26 or 28" barrels un-messed with condition.

How about you???

A 16 gauge BH, preferably straight/splinter with two triggers...and Damascus barrels (yeah, this is as wish list.

L. C. Smith 5E small bore, also with straight/splinter and two triggers.

An opulent 16 gauge field gun. Straight stock with splinter forend. 26 or 28 inch barrels.

Gary's 16 gauge BH would fit my bill.

Jay, I don't think they are overlooked as much as hard to find. They did indeed make some beautiful guns.

My wish for 2022 (early) would be for RST to be back up to 100% production capacity with NO future shortages.

I guess what I need is an Ithaca NID 20-gauge No. 4E with 26-inch barrels. My NID .410-bore, 28-, 16- and 12-gauge are all 26-inch, and standing right in the middle of the row is a 20-gauge with 30-inch barrels.
