    Well, I sold off most of my toys so now I only have 1 shotgun & I chose to keep my 870. However, I do want to buy another Saiga 12.

    As far as rifles go, I sold all but my AR15 & 10/22. I'd have to keep the AR15 if I could only have one.

    As far as the pistols go, I'd keep my carry M&P40C.

    Shotgun: Mossberg 590 SP

    Pistol: Glock 19

    Rifle: tough choice. Depending on the day you ask me... it could be either a Marlin 336SS 30-30, a Savage 116 Weather warrior in 30-06, or one of my AK's.

    Yes I own all of them.

    Does having multiple barrels or uppers for one gun qualify?

    Shotgun would be my frankengauge. Started off its life as a Maverick 88 12 gauge, aquired an ATI M-4 style stock and pistol grip, Mossberg 500 receiver, Mossberg 500 mag tube, Mossberg 18.5" barrel, Mossberg 24" rifled barrel, ATI heat shield with ghost ring sights, synthetic fore-end with triple picatinny rail system...

    Rifle would be AR-15 of some sort. I'm still researching which one I plan to get. A-3 style upper (flat with the rails, not the lame carry handle) chambered for 5.56 NATO. M-4 barrel. Of course I'd get multiple uppers, like the AT-15 upper in .410, maybe a 24" upper in .308, and maybe even a 7.3" upper in 9mm.

    Pistol would be Sig 226 or 229.

    Revolver would be Taurus Ragin Bull in .454 Casull.

    Just because I like making up my own rules, I'm going to do two lists.

    RECREATIONAL
    Rifle: CZ 452 Trainer
    Pistol: Browning Buck Mark Standard
    Shotgun: Remington 1100 Sporting 12

    PRACTICAL
    Rifle: Mini-14
    Pistol: Glock 26
    Shotgun: Remington 870

    I do own all of these. I didn't think this was a "dream guns" thread.

    Shotgun: Ithaca 37. I know there are designs that hold more rounds, but I just think they'e such slick guns. I'd love to have one some day, just wish they weren't so expensive.

    Handgun: Smith & Wesson M&P R8. I'm a big fan of revolvers, and 8 shots of .357 can do just about anything a handgun can be expected to do. Also pre-drilled for moon clips.

    Rifle: FAL clone. Not much to say about that one. Great design, great round.

    Brass Rain, check out the Browning BPS. I love the Ithaca M37. But these days, it would be the BPS with the same feel and bottom ejection.

    Toivo; I changed the rules too in my original post. Did essentially the same thing you did. :)

    Depends if the reason was for Survival purposes, or because some liberal law said we could only have one of each. A hypothetical like this depends solely on the "WHY" can I only have one of each.

    If it was because it was a law, then my choices would be:
    1. Remington 870 12 gauge 3" magnum shotgun. Buy an 18" barrel for defense. Longer barrels for hunting bird, dear, etc...
    2. S&W 357 magnum revolver. Able to shoot 38spl and 357 magnum. Able to be used for personal defense and hunting. Can plink without going bankrupt.
    3. 7mm Magnum (Brand not as important). This caliber can hunt ANYTHING in North America. From prairie dogs to moose; from deer at 100 yards to big horn sheep at 400 yards.

    If I was looking more at a survival situation, I would keep the same shotgun and pistol; (Remington 870 is pretty self explanatory; the S&W 357 magnum will be more reliable than semi-auto). But for rifle, I would have to probably go with a 22LR such as a remington or winchester. For survival purposes, I will need food. I can take a deer down with a 22LR, and NOT inform the entire world that I'm there. As well as rabbits, cats, dogs, squirrels, etc... In a survival environment, high power rifles are useless, unless that's all you have. Some might believe an AR or AK is a good survival weapon, but I can keep most human threats away with the 870 12 gauge or 357 magnum.

    So again; only choosing 3 in such a hypothetical; is only productive if you qualify the "WHY". Fortunately, we live in a country that we aren't limited to how many guns. That's why I have my "3" collections of guns. 1) Historical: M1-Garand, 1862 Navy, 1903 Springfield, 1890's colt, etc... 2) Trading collection: Guns used specifically for trading. Usually I find a great deal on a weapon because someone needs cash, and I buy it. And may not personally want it, but I know I can turn it around in a trade towards something I do want. 3) My all purpose collection: Basically, 8 guns that I believe cover every possible scenario. So; if you're going to limit to 3 guns, it would help to know the reason why and what our environment will be.

    Mossberg 590, Glock 19, AR15 with full length barrel. (I don't know enough about ARs for a specific model choice.) These choices are geared toward defense against attack from two-legged animals, but could be pressed into service for hunting four-legged animals, although I can't picture myself as a subsistence hunter. I can barely find my car in a parking lot. :D

    Shotgun,easiest. Either a Remington 870 with a slug barrel and interchangeable choke field barrel or an Ithaca 37 with the same (allready own both)
    Rifle: probably a short action bolt .308 with a 1.5 x 5 Leupold scope (have)
    most difficult: Handgun. Stainless J frame .38 with 3" bbl

    I don't hunt much (just turkey), so my 3 choices for self-defense are:


    shotgun: Mossberg 590A1

    pistol: S&W J-frame 642

    rifle: Bushmaster XM-15 E2S carbine



    For collecting purposes, I tend to like modern reproductions so my kids can inherit something safe and pretty to shoot. My top 3 choices so far:

    Colt Single Action Army, nickel plated

    Colt M1911 WWI, carbonia blue

    S&W Model 40 "lemon squeezer," case colored
