It notes No MIlitary with a few exceptions, since F&S
is a hunting magazine. I thought I'd scan it for the
handguns that made the list since this is posted
on the Handguns/General board sub area.

5. Smith & Wesson Model 29
No surprize here

9. Remington XP-100
?? in .221 Fireball ??? how does it make it
ahead of the T/C Contender with the myriad
of cartridge choices?

20. Smith & Wesson "Triple Lock"
1908-1915 2nd Model Hand Ejector which
would later become known as the N-frame

27. Ruger Single Six

31. Thompson Center Contender

38. Ruger Blackhawk


Of the shotguns I would put the Ithaca
37 higher


I don't think the S&W Triple Lock belongs here
it is more a Most Desired model. I would replace
it with the S&W Pre-WWII "Registered Magnum"
the first true magnum chambering in 1935 has
been used by more sportsmen than the much less
produced "Triple Lock"

and surprized the S&W .22 LR "Kit Gun" is absent.

Hey, I'll go back and look at the list again but if that
list doesn't include the WInchester 1894 in .30-30 Win.
it would be the most glaring omission - IMO probably more
deer taken with that model than any other

I have a copy of that artical some where... Some I agree with, others I don't.

Just saw the list (didn't want to make a duplicate thread). I have to say, I have some issues for sure. The Model 19 S&W isn't even on there (or at least i don't think it is). I know Field and Stream is a hunting magazine, but they should've qualified it as "Best Hunting Guns Of All Time".
