    My FAL is my fun gun. It is accurate as hell, powerful, and the recoil in such a heavy rifle with an adjustable gas system is pretty mild.
    The SKS is a close second.
    The M39 is accurate beyond my abilities but recoil isn't as soft as the FAL so it isn't nearly as much fun to shoot.
    What are your fun guns?
    What qualities define a fun gun?
    For me they are reliability, accuracy, and light enough recoil that you can shoot it all day.

    Ruger MkIII 22/45
    Ruger 10/22
    Springfield XD9

    The 10.5" Super Blackhawk .44 is tons of fun at long ranges too, but costs more per shot. The above are mostly for fun, although the .22's go into the woods during squirrel seasons and the XD rides in the car with me at times.

    They're all fun, but the one I bought JUST FOR FUN is my new Tarus Tracker 970 in .22lr


    It's big and manly looking, and shoots great. The wife will probably even like it, thus making shooting much more fun for me.

    Justin, what cal. is yours? I havent had a chance to shoot mine yet.

    My .45-70 BFR and my .44 Magnum Ruger Redhawk are fun as he!!, but a
    bit costly to shoot. My Beretta 92F is a lot of fun and cheaper too. :D

    A "fun gun" is whatever is fun to shoot.

    My fun gun is my turk mauser.

    What i like to do most is set up a paper plate, and a few stripper clips. I shoot em all into the plate as fast as i can. Im getting pretty good at rapid aimed fire.

    Nice thing is, i dont have to be afraid of banging it up.

    CETME. Big boom. Not much recoil. Bullets go where I want 'em to.

    It's a ton of fun. It also has it's uses for dealing with annoying people at the range. A few months ago on a trip to the indoor range I usually frequent there was this guy about 2 lanes down from me shooting a full size S&W .357 (I'm not good enough with S&W models to tell which one but I took a peak at the ammo box on the bench).

    This guys got his girlfriend and 2 buddys with him and is acting like a idiot everytime he shoots the thing. Yelling about how powerful the gun is, saying he can barely hold onto the thing everytime he pulls the trigger etc. Now normally I don't care if someone wants to make a fool of himself in public but this guy was driving me nuts. The final straw was when, after lighting off a cylinder full, he starts jumping up and down(Yes, Literally jumping up and down) and yelling to his GF that if she ever tried to shoot his gun it would rip her arm clean off.

    At that point my good manners decided to go get a cup of coffee or take a smoke break or something. I loaded both of the mags I had with me and quietly shifted into the lane next to him and ran a target out. I waited till I saw him put his gun down on the bench after shooting and then fired off the first mag as fast as I safely could, swapped mags and did it again.

    I hear "What the h#ll was that!" from his lane and both he and his friends pop around the divider to see what it was. After that he stopped making so many comments to go along with his shooting and I got a smile and a chuckle out of his girlfriend. I reckon she didn't take to kindly to the rip her arm off comment.

    My fun gun is my BAR. Always get lots of weird looks at the range.

    "Is that real?" is the usual question. Well why would I bring it to a range if it was an airsoft? :confused:

    That and my Sig P239. It's my boring old carry gun, but it is, for whatever reason, the most accurate thing I shoot. Something about that thing and the way I shoot work better together than anything else I own.

    My AR15

    It's cheap to feed, I can shoot it all day with out a sore shoulder, it's accurate and it eats all the Wolf 62 grain FMJ I can feed it!

    The 10-22(my second favorite) is a fun little gun but it lacks the range I want to plink at. I like to shoot at 50-100 yards and that little 22LR just can't hang.

    SIG P239 in .357 SIG. Makes me grin when I shoot it.

    Followed by:
    STI Ranger .45ACP
    and
    Ruger #1-H in .416 Rigby - always a great conversation starter at the indoor range.

    Marlin Model 66 -- 18 rounds of cheap .22 ammo in the tube magazine.

    Wooohooo!

    2nd best -- Blam! Blam! Blam! Blam! Blam! Blam! Blam! Blam! Ping! -- The M1 Garand. Lots more expensive though.

    I am cheap, so I like my 10/22, and my Buckmark.

    My Springfield 1911 loaded and saiga .308 are the most fun I'd say. Recoil on both is very comfortable and accuracy is great. Saiga is lightweight with good balance, it's a pleasure. Wish it was in PG form though.

    My CZ-83 in .380 ACP. It's my "every time to the range" gun. Accurate. Reliable. Fit and finish as good as anything SIG or HK are turning out.Great trigger. What's not to love?:D
