    OK, two responses so far and the 1911 has NOT been mentioned.

    Something is wrong here. :scrutiny:

    Larry,
    The question was "most popular" in 2006.

    I answered "that" question.

    I was nice about the 870 I posted, because I was a frogs hair away of typing 870 with gidgets, gadgets, fuzzy dice and curb feelers, it is not popular to learn how to shoot, it is popular to bolt stuff on and off, and buy skill and targets....but I didn't...:)

    If I ever face a person with shotgun, may it be a PGO, with everything bolted onto it. Odds and Lady Luck in my favor that person has never shot the gun, and I will beat him like a drum with his own boy toy. I have done this in impromtu training with such a keyboard armchair commando.

    Now ask me what MY top 10 guns are? Different list, and the 1911 at the top.

    I want the person with the worn holster, worn bluing, and if a shotgun, plain vanilla , worn, scratched, bluing wear. watching my six.

    Give me 1911Tuner with a Gov't model of 1911, a Kframe, his rabbit earred double bbl shotgun and his Model 94 in 30-30...my six is safe.

    Smoke Rizen with his preference,
    Old Fuff with his
    Dave Mc
    Lee Lapin
    ...etc...not meaning to leave anyone out

    Perhaps these folks are not using the 2006 most popular - they can shoot!

    What would be considered the ultimate ?

    Thanks for those

    I wonder if most are happy with what you bought
    and what would be considered the ultimate

    Very interesting. Ive listed them at

    http://aussieseek.proboards25.com/index.cgi

    I got some in also from our usenet feed and some from the gun posters on our site and thought you might like to see them.

    Im wondering what Guns rule worldwide ans what are allowed in each country.

    -=-=====
    Advocate was kind enough to answer
    I personally have no idea...but I'd guess that the Ruger 10/22 must be one
    of the most popular rifles sold today. Glock handguns certainly must be at
    the top of overall handgun sales as well.
    I wouldn't mind having a dime for every Mossberg 500 pump shotgun that
    leaves the retail stores daily...I would think that the Remington 870
    Express sales are right up there too.
    I don't have a clue what centerfire rifle is at the top...Winchester is
    gone, so that would leave Savage 11*, Remington 700 and Ruger 77mkII...at
    least those would be the popular choices here in the Midwest.

    You can't forget both the historical, and recent popularity of the 1911's.

    But I definately have to agree with the mossberg 500 and the remington 700,
    both here in norfolk and back home in north buttfudge, va.

    In America? Rifle - Ruger 10/22 semiauto .22 rifle far and away
    leads among .22 rimfire. SKS 7.62x39mm among centerfire rifles. AR-15
    also very popular - but I doubt as many have sold as of the SKS.
    Pistol? Ruger MkII dominates .22 rimfire field. No clear candidate
    dominates the centerfire-pistol field - but the leading brands are
    Glock, Beretta, Sig, and (maybe) Kel-Tec in current sales. 1911 and
    clone .45 ACPs very popular.
    Revolver? Taurus and Ruger - in a wide variety of models in .22
    rimfire, .38 Special, .357 Magnum.

    Peter

    No question about the Ruger being the best sellor and probably the
    single most common firearm around.
    > SKS 7.62x39mm among centerfire rifles.
    I would argue a bolt-action rifle in some 30-cal round (especially
    30/06) as the most common centerfire gun. Again, there is little
    question that the SKS is the most common centerfire automatic.
    However, there are a lot of M-1 carbines around too.
    > AR-15 also very popular - but I doubt as many have sold as of the SKS.
    AR-15's are hundreds, if not thousands of $. I have seen SKS' for as
    little as $100 or so.
    > Pistol? Ruger MkII dominates .22 rimfire field. No clear candidate
    >dominates the centerfire-pistol field - but the leading brands are
    >Glock, Beretta, Sig, and (maybe) Kel-Tec in current sales. 1911 and
    >clone .45 ACPs very popular.
    My wild guess is the 1911 colt is the single most common centerfire
    pistol.
    >Revolver? Taurus and Ruger - in a wide variety of models in .22
    >rimfire, .38 Special, .357 Magnum.
    True, Tauus and Ruger sell a lot more guns these days, But don't
    forget all those S&W and (maybe) colt revolvers made for decades that
    never wear out

    Peter quoted me:
    >> SKS 7.62x39mm among centerfire rifles.
    and replied:
    >I would argue a bolt-action rifle in some 30-cal round (especially
    >30/06) as the most common centerfire gun. Again, there is little
    >question that the SKS is the most common centerfire automatic.
    "Bolt-action rifle in 'some' 30-cal round" includes a lot of
    DIFFERENT model rifles and a lot of rifles chambered for DIFFERENT
    cartridges (.308, .30-06, .300 Win. Mag., etc.) - but the SKS is ONE
    model made for ONE cartridge. That's why I'd rate it easily the
    most-popular centerfire rifle - of any type, not just semiauto - in
    America now.
    >However, there are a lot of M-1 carbines around too.
    It's hard to say how many were brought home from various wars by GIs
    - but one thing is indicative: there always seems to be a lot more
    demand for the ammo that the SKS takes than for the ammo the M-1
    Carbine takes.

    In order of popularity in Texas: . 22 cal rifle (got my first one at
    age 10), shotgun ( mostly 12 guage or 20 guage), assorted centerfire
    rifles (generaly bolt action), handguns

    He didn't give a date range; but I suspect the biggest seller has been
    lever actions. They won the west.
