    What are your fun guns?

    These are guns that you own just for the pure pleasure of shooting them. They might not be your most accurate guns, nor your prettiest guns. Collector value is probably not there either. But, you simply enjoy shooting them.

    I have several guns that I consider my fun guns. One is an old High Standard, Double Action, 9-shot 22 revovler. Actually it is pretty accurate. Maybe not target accurate, but definetly a minute-of-can shooter. I like to shoot it.

    So, what are your fun guns?

    My cheap .22s are my fun guns.. namely my Phoenix HP22A and my old Jennings J-22. Of course, my other .22s are fun, too, but more "refined" (Ruger MK-II and 10/22.)

    My Fun Guns

    Coupla pawn shop orphans, Model 60 Marlin and Nylon 66 Remington, that I picked up for about $50 each and shamelessly bubba'd beyond redemption.

    The good Model 60 (top) usually stays new in the box in the closet.
    One of the pawn shop orphans accompanies me to the country in the pickup, and if they get dinged or dented or scratched, that just adds to their character.

    M1 carbine for me, have a collection in the triple digits but the carbine is the one for just pure plinking enjoyment.

    Browning Buckmark Silhouette with 4x Leupold LER glass (great for gophers or chewing up golfballs at 50 yards)

    My most fun gun would have to be my Desert Eagle 44 mag. Big BOOMS with manageable recoil, what's not to like :D

    ISSC M22 .22 'Glock-a-like'. All the training value of a centerfire pistol at a fraction of the price - and great for breaking in new shooters with extremely minimal recoil and noise.

    My Rossi Ranch Hand in .44 Magnum/Special. What is not to like when you shoot a lever action pistol and people look at you funny? That and it is a hoot to shoot.

    Fun gun?

    My lever action .22. Hands down. There's something gratifying about working a lever action and watching that piece of (small) brass fly out of the side of a gun.

    My 22lr are my fun guns. I have a Ruger Mark III and Taurus revolver. I also have a Marlin 60 and 795. They provide lots of fun and practice.

    My other guns are fun as well but they each have a purpose and are practiced with that in mind. The 22lr are for plinking.

    AR is for work and play, and then the same for the Sig P220

    I enjoy shooting them more than the .22's.....until I have to go buy more ammo ;)

    My next "fun" gun will be a .308 for some LR shooting.....and a reloading bench to help with everything else :)

    Probably provides the most fun of any gun I own. I can almost hear Harry Callahan before I pull the trigger.

    The ones with triggers. :neener:

    Honestly, at the moment...my glock 19 is more fun than anything I've owned. It is a pleasure to shoot fast and accurately. I consider myself a 1911 guy, so it pains me to type that.

    Almost all of my .22's can be considered fun guns, with my Ruger 10/22 probably being the most fun (as well as being very accurate), to shoot out of all of them. In a revolver, it would have to be my Ruger Vaquero in .45LC. Just something about shooting that gun always puts a smile on my face. My customized Colt Combat Commander would be my favorite semi-auto pistol, as it's both fun to shoot and extremely accurate.
