    Fun gun...

    I will always love my Romanian Kalashniclone, but, my new favorite fun gun is my GSG AK-22. Great gun, lot's of "WOW" factor...

    Pistol is the Colt Commander

    Shotgun is the Mossberg 500 in 20 gauge. My wife and kids love that one!

    Browning BPS. There's just something incredibly fun about a twelve-gauge pump-action shotgun. Blowing up clays mid-air on the trap or skeet range gives an incredible feeling of accomplishment (particularly if we're talking skeet and I have to cycle quickly to get a double). And loading it with buckshot and annihilating some water bottles in a gravel pit? It's juvenile low-brow fun, but my goodness, is it FUN. Heck, even just cycling snap caps through a pump-action is entertaining.

    Marlin 60. I have a better .22, but for plinking, can't beat the semi-auto 60!

    My magic 75 Shadow would have to be there, or it might quit improving my scores.
    My very fun-to-shoot Browning Sweet Sixteen would need to be there.
    My High Standard target pistol would feel left out if it didn't get to go too.

    M1A SOCOM, with McMillan M3A fully adjustable stock, ARMS 18 rail, and EoTech 552 sight. Just fun. So, that fills the thread's request. In reality, taking one doesn't work. For the 4th, I took my nephews and niece to the range. They wanted to shoot the:

    M1A SOCOM
    M1A Loaded
    M70 Stealth
    Mossberg MVP
    Ruger Gunsite Scout
    M870 Tactical
    G21 4th Gen (two of them)
    G20C 3rd Gen

    Those, and 900 rounds of ammo went with me. I came back with the firearms, and minus nearly 800 rounds, about 100 remaining. That is a typical outing for me at the range. I'm a very popular uncle.

    Right now it would be either my Springfield Long Slide

    or my Smith & Wesson Model 18

    Both are fun as a barrel of monkeys.

    RFB with EoTech 552 or just plinking with the 10-22.

    As one bull said to the other, approaching the heifers in the valley, "Their all good !" Type: Rifle, Shotgun, Revolver, Autoloader, (even single shot). Caliber : .22, 9mm, .45, (whatever). "Their all good !" I can still pull the trigger. God help and bless America!

    For now it would have to be one of my Thompson "clones", Commando, Apache, or latest Fox carbine (www.foxcarbine.com). My S&W model 66, and 60 357 mags always leave me smiling.

    Today it was the M-1 Garand. Most often it is the Norinco SKS, but now down to only 2,000 rds. (7.62x39).

    A (bubba'd when I got it) '51 Polish M44 Mosin Nagant with a red dot mounted.

    Sort of a ghetto "scout rifle", lots of fun.

    I enjoy all of my guns, just depends on what mood I am in to determine what fun I want to have. Pic is of my 12yr old son shooting my Benelli SuperNova with 3.5" load of 00 buck. Too many of them is not really fun but he enjoyed the heck out of it and I was impressed with him.

    My old S&W 10-4 that I received from a dear friend. Shooting it reminds me of him and oh so different times.

    This one is the most fun of all my guns, be it centerfire or rimfire. Lucky for me it's the cheapest of all calibers. But I still haven't fired the one under it, so it's place at the top COULD be a temporary thing.

    My club has a trap shoot on the first Sunday of each month and my wife and I usually attend. On the following Monday, I often bring my Marlin 1894CL .32-20 to the range and "dispatch the wounded" clay birds. Strange perhaps, but it is a LOT of fun.

    You don't like firearms, yet you have nearly 3k posts on a gun forum. :rolleyes:
    Well I love them and shooting as well as loading for them gives me immense pleasure.

    For the OP, your choice of a Ruger Blackhawk in .41 mag is one that nearly mirrors my own. My favorite gun to shoot is probably my Blackhawk in .45 Colt. I can load it down with some Trail Boss or Red Dot if I'm in a pansy plinking mood (which I am most of the time), or if I'm feeling my oats, I can load up an undisclosed amount of 2400 or H110 and make a really loud boom.
