For pistols it's the Sig 220. I lusted after them for 15 years before getting them. They way it feels in my hand is just better than any other pistol including a 1911.
For shotguns it's the Mossberg 500. I like the tang mounted safety and nothing getting in the way when I load a shell into the magazine tube.
I usually happy with most firearms these are the ones that feel extra special to me.
(close seconds: AK-47/74,1911a1,1903 (pocket),S&W 64, Colt Trooper III,Ruger Mk II)
And again, so I'm not misunderstood: U.S. Rifle / Caliber .30 / M-1
Hahahhaaaaa. Square shot or round shot?
It's the holy grail of "OMG" firepower.
Unbelievably expensive to own and shoot.
Therefore I'll never have one.
And I'll always WANT one.
As such... it wins, hands down.
For all the obvious reasons.
and a 4" Smith & Wesson 19-3 .357 mag. Close, very close is an old West German
.45 ACP SIG-SAUER P220A~!
You know, I'm and old fart and always forgett'in something~! In this case, it is the
Smith & Wesson model 39 and the alloy model 39-2 9mm semi-auto. These were
equipped with silencers, and originally used to squash sentry's, guard dog's, and
ducks during the Viet-Nam War. The proper name at the time was "Hush Puppies";
and were used on covert operations within the jungle. If memory serves me right,
I believe the U.S.Navy Seal Teams were the first to implement the use of the "Hush
Puppies". My good friend and THR member isp2605 [formerly of the Illinois State
Police] informed me that his department was the first major department to issue
the S&W model 39-2's, in 'bout 1968 (I think~?) Therefore, I own 2x model 39-s's
one of which has NEVER been fired; in original blue cardboard box, with all doc's~!
I'd also pick the 1911 for the same reasons.
Right now I am having a serious love affair with a 9mm EMP. Just something about that gun. The style, the accuracy, the quality feel. I have had a lot of guns in my life, but have never been as smitten as I am with the EMP.
Revolver? S&W L frame 357
Game Rifle? '98 Mauser type. (Mine is a 1948 Husqvarna made with FN action)
Patrol Rifle? AR-15, 5.56 cal
Defensive Shotgun? Remmie 870 P
Field Shotgun? Remmie 870 12ga
22 Rifle? Ruger 10/22
22 Pistol? S&W M41
If I could just keep one pistol, rifle and shotgun?
Glock 23, 40 cal
Remmie 870 P
The Second Amendment is NOT about hunting.
just thinking about it makes my brain hurt
the ones i like the most are the ones i will never be able to afford to own or shoot
like an M-107 .50 cal LRSR and a BAR
Love the Thompson sub machine gun
Love my muzzleloaders and 1858 C&B revolvers a lot too
Love my SKS and 10-22 for cheap fun shooting
Love my .44Mag blackhawk and my .50 Desert Eagle
