Springfield 1911 Champion .45 - I love this gun. Shoots great, durable, and what's not to like about a .45? Remington 870 12 gauge - versatile, durable, classic Remington Model 700 BDL .270 - I love this gun. It is a part of me almost, I've shot it so much and I'm familiar with it. I might be tempted to go with a higher end gun, but in the end.....I couldn't do it. I'm just not into stainless steel and synthetic stocks, and I'd feel bad about beating up anything more expensive.
