    ..at the range. Which one garners the most ooohs and aaahs. Is there one that just leave people drooling like a 3 month old and begging to shoot?

    Don't know about the drooling part but oddly my Yugo sks always gets a few lookers. At one of the ranges that I go to the um clients are mostly hunters that have dragged out that deer rifle that has sat unused in the closet since last November.

    Guns that turn me into a pile of mush when I encounter them at the range are most anything class 3. Love shooting them. No matter how many times I shoot a sub gun always get the full auto grin. I just can't justify the cost of owning one.

    While I prefer to shoot smaller calibers (9mm, .45acp, 7.63x39), the large bore hand cannons and rifles always facinate me.

    M1A with camouflaged stock/handguard. Only thing more evil than an EBR is an ETSR (evil Tiger Striped Rifle).

    My January 1944 M-1 Garand. People love to hear that "ping!" of the empty en-bloc clip ejecting:D

    I was experementing with my M1A one time trying to figure out if i could make it Automatic. I eventually figured it out and wowed allot of people. i replaced it with a new trigger group and destroyed the other but it is still nice to know i could do it if i needed to

    M1 Garand by far.

    WEPS,
    You might want to keep the highly illegal activities on the down low so to speak. I hear the BATF kinda frowns on illegal full auto conversions. Just a thought. I mean with the broad definition of "constructive intent" I don't even want to think about making a full auto.

    Oddly enough, the Mosin M38. When I touch off a round, the thunderboom grabs EVERYONE'S attention. Though, on the other hand, everyone who sees my Witness with Hakan grips oohs and ahhs over the grips...

    So far, I guess it's been my HK USC. It does look kinda funky, so I suppose it's interesting to people who haven't seen one before. And even moreso if they don't know a whole lot about firearms.

    It used to be my 1858 Remington New Model Army cap n' ball revolver. That was twenty years ago when they were not so common. People asked a lot of questions and got big grins when I offered them a chance to shoot it. Now lots of people have them and I aint so special any more even though I still have a lot of fun with it.:D

    The SPAS shotguns. Definitely the SPAS.

    Edited for incredibly stupid spelling error that I simply could not stand to look at any longer.

    I'm gonna second the Yugo SKS. I like the attention I get when the rifle with a bayonet and grenade launcher comes out!

    Another vote for the M1 Garand. Nothing grabs your attention like eight rounds of .30-06 going downrange in four seconds.

    My CETME. I don't have a brake on it, so it isn't quite as loud an M38/44. But it gets a fair amount of attention.

    People at the range ask why does that Colt 45 make a cracking noise when you fire it, its not a 45acp but a Series 70 GM 38 super. Also the they like my Remington 1903A3 for some reason.

    Seems like my SAA 45 replica always draws people to look at it. I'll hear others say, "Oh look, an old cowboy gun."

    My pistol-gripped tanker M1. Though the comments aren't so much "ooh and ahh" and "*** is that?" :)

    WHICH ONE?

    The Camel Cannon of course!

    Anyone within 20ft of the Hakim pays attention pronto! Then they want to try it too! :D
