    Handguns on the list

    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

    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".
