    I'm sorry Mike, but you forgot the M2HB.

    I spelled the title correctly. The guy coding it slipped.

    At $34,500, the M2HB is not a weapon a man will typically own and use.

    Teriffic article - but the SMLE, IIRC, stands for Short (barrelled - compared with previous very long-barrelled weapons) Magazine (fed) Lee Enfield.

    I agree, great article, except you missed the Garand. It's the rifle that helps us win WWII and was well loved by GI's in all theaters.

    I mean, what's more manly than a rifle that taunts your enemies by loudly announcing that it's out of ammo (PING!) and daring them to try to come and get you! That's when they meet Mr. Bayonet, and nothing is more manly then a bayonet.

    It's called "00" buck.

    Missed the Garand.

    Missed the Mauser.

    I had to limit it to 10.

    The Mauser is showing up in another list.

    The Garand was manly, but there are manlier guns, IMO. At least ten, you can presume.;)

    It's 000 buck that .356" dia, AFAIR. 00 is around .32 cal. Can someone check me?

    Interesting.

    Here are some things you may want to correct.

    Short, Magazine, Lee-Enfield (SMLE) not Short Model

    M38s were issued with bayonets to Finnish troops. I own 2 of the expensive little buggers.
