    So I was thinking earlier, I have owned a lot of weapons over the last 20yrs. From a 22 pistol to a Barrett M82, more AR-15s than a care to talk about. I don't believe there is one gun that can cover everything so you need to have few. My shooting has also changed from kicking in doors to laying out at a distance. I had 308s then got away and tired others then came back to it. My point is my Ruger M77 Gunsite Scout Rifle is probably going to be the "one" gun I never get rid of. Everytime I open it's case everytime I shoot it I like it even more. I think this one is perfect for me. Now it's your turn what is that "one" gun you own or that you will own that you will probably keep forever.

    Probably the "one" I kept fourteen years ago when I had to sell the rest:

    The Belgium-made Browning Hi-Power that I bought new in 1986.

    I’ve got a bunch of cool guns: Shiloh Sharps, 3 Ballard High-Walls, Les Baers etc.

    They’re all replaceable though. These are a couple pics of the gun I will never part with A.H. Fox SxS 20Ga “Sterlingworth”, that’s been in my family since just after WWI. My dad learned to shoot with it, I learned to shoot with it, with any luck my boy will learn with it too. I few years ago I had it completely redone and upgraded by Dug Turnbull. Now it’s a fair weather quail gun:

    My 10/22. The barrel might go, the stock might go, the trigger group might get overhauled, but I see no reason to dump it.

    My S&W 19-3. Bought it new, IMHO the optimum combination of power, weight, balance, and reliability.

    The Remington Model 11 "on the Browning Patent" that my Dad gave me just before he passed away. He bought the gun brand new in 1940, after trying it out on some corn cobs thrown up behind the gun shop in N/E Wisconsin. He shot deer, pheasant, duck, rabbit, partridge, prairee chicken, and woodcock, not to mention a few geese. That gun has some pretty fond memories, as I hunted with my Dad using an Iver Johnson single shot shotgun, BTW I still have that gun to this day, not too mention about 70 other firearms that come to think of I don't think I'd ever get rid of any of 'em. Oh well!:rolleyes:

    For versatility, its hard to go wrong with a pump 12-gauge. But if one, and only one, dammit, I have to go M1911. Nothing, I mean nothing, floats my boat like a 1911.

    Assuming I ever permanently get one for myself, an SVT-40. The right answer is my last gun, and the best answer is none of them.

    Colt, Mk IV Series '70 .45acp Government Model.
    Paid $137.50 for it in 1973, and I wouldn't take a thousand for it today.:D

    My dads White Mountain Carbine .50
    My dads 12 Gauge Muzzle Loader

    My granddads 30-06 Mauser ( got some odd scope mount I have never seen before looks like an electricity outlet )

    I think that's about it.

    My Mini-14, it can deliver a lot of accurate firepower, it prints 1.5" groups with my handload's pretty consistently.

    H&K USP compact 9mm

    ...I have other guns that fill their niche that no others can, but when it comes to the one gun that is small enough to carry around everywhere every day, super reliable, accurate enough for competition, decent enough caliber for self defense, and that I enjoy shooting, the USP is it...

    If I could only have one gun for the rest of my life, it would be a Glock 17 or 34.

    Chuck, that's nice! My uncle has a Sterlingworth 16 ga. in his closet. He used to let me borrow it when I was a kid and said that someday I could have it. I think he forgot :(

    I would not part with my 12 ga. Rem 870 Wingmaster that I bought when I was 15.

    I was going to say "all of them", but if I were to be forced to give up all but one, it would be my GP100.
