Which of your guns do you take out and fondle the most?

    So which gun do you take out and fondle the most? Dry fire, clean it even though it is clean, take apart and put back together for no reason, play with, etc...

    I could ask which you take to the range the most but that doesn't say much because you may have other reasons. Maybe you take out your .22s the most because they are cheap. Maybe you take your SD gun the most to stay proficient...

    I could ask which is your favorite but then you might think too much and not give the "real" answer. It might even be the "real" answer, but not be the same as the one you like to just "play" with the most for whatever reason.

    So, I just want to know what you take out the most just for the heck of it to look at, fondle, play with. It could be a rifle, handgun, shotgun, airgun, whatever.

    For me it is my Charles Daly 1911 and Taurus 85 (I'm not sure which I take out more). My S&W 65LS is close behind and the CZ 75B is behind that. In long guns it is probably the SKS, but that is because it is one of two that are actually at the house (I'm sure if I didn't keep my Winchester 94 in a storage unit it would probably be more "fondled"). None of my long guns gets "played with" as much as any of the mentioned handguns.

    My Makarov.

    I figure since I carry it that it needs to be taken down and "de-linted" regularly ... back when I had a Kahr MK40, it was my primary carry gun and it got the "most fondled" title.

    When i found out how easy it was to dissasemble my makarov i proceeded to do so until i could do it with my eyes closed for no particular reason other than i could. Asside from that i probably end up "checking" my sp101 more than anything else. It too is very easy to strip down.

    I don't think that I have ever "played" any of my firearms. While I take pleasure in shooting them, everything has a time and a place when it comes to my guns. When they come out of the locker or lock box, it's for a reason. Range time, cleaning, inspection (yes, I tear down my firearms yearly for a visual inspection), training, is just about the only reasons that they come out of that locker or lock box. I have too much respect for my firearms, kinda like the way a Samurai treats his sword with respect. I guess I'm just weird like that.

    I fail to see how regularly breaking down and lovingly cleaning a firearm is "disrespectful" :p

    my Norks get my Samurai time

    My CCWs are the most handled, shot, inspected,or dry-fired.
    I actually just finished giving CCWs a very light application of RIG.
    Next would be SGs, I still do mount, swing and dry fire with them. Did 100 reps today.

    Other than my daily CCW which now alternates between a G17 and Colt M1991A1 Compact, I would have to say I probably 'play' with my Smith M10 and AR the most. The revolver is relatively new to me so I am still exploring it in intimate detail and the lack of a close outdoor range means I don't get to fire my long guns as often as I would like.

    My BHP probably gets handled the most since I carry it off-duty. But for just pure fondling pleasure it's got to be my newest mistress:evil:.......yes that's right, a sleek, sexy, Turkish made, Gazelle Arms O/U 12ga. After aquiring her, she folded a flushing ptarmigan on the first shot when we went out on our first real date.:D

    For some strange reason I just love the feel and sound of the action on my 686+. I can't pick up the gun with out cocking it and have sat watching TV and done it again and again! I have to tell myself-"stop that!" and put the gun away! I don't think I'll go blind or anything though! :D

    I also like to take out my Weatherby O/U Orion II and admire the wood and engraving.

    It seems like I do that with whatever my newest gun is....

    ...Right now I can't seem to separate from my sks. I take it apart, clean it, put it back together.....and then I get the nagging feeling that it isn't clean enough......so I do it again.

    Sure enough, I still manage to get some more crud out of it :neener:

    Whichever one is at the front of the safe, it is too much work to dig out the ones in the back :D (more than a grain of truth to that though :uhoh: ).

    Carry guns get the most maintenance done to them. For the long guns, whichever old milsurp I'm tinkering with at the time.

    ....all the engraved ones.....each time one is handled it amazes me at the craftsmanship, skill, and artistry. Trying to imagine some Belgium craftsman tapping away with a mallet and chisel creating "eye candy" for those of us less talented. Unfortunately my expertise with a hammer is limited to driving 16d's into 2X4's. Renaissance Browning High Power get's the most loving attention...the high grade over/unders are a close second.

    Sistema 1911. There's just something about it that draws me towards it every time.

    M-1 Garand...it REEKS of history. Manufactured January 1944. I just wish it could talk back.:)

    It's usually my Gold Cup 45, but I'm very low on ammo for it right now so I have switched over to the Beretta 92 FS as I still have 6000 rounds of component bullets for it. When I get more 200 gr lead SWC bullets I'll probably switch between them.

    Well, I'm always playing with my Beretta because it's my main carry gun. I take out my SKS and my Mosin 91/30 all the time just to look at them. I love those rifles.

    You lucky guy. Nothing like holding on to history. Especially the rifle that won freedom!

    A German Officer Luger given to me from my Dad that he took from a German Col. near Munich in the last days of the war.

    I clean and lube each weapon I have every 2 weeks, and if I shoot, I clean it when I get home, and then again for the next 2 days. Thank you Marine Corps for training me to do it right!
