    I see tons of threads about the CZ452,10/22,and Marlin model 39 but nobody seems to have any love for the old single shot bolties. In my opinion they are just as much an American classic as the 1911 and the Model 94. Think of how many people have been tought how to shoot and supplied their family with food with one. I have a little Chickmunk that my mom bought me when I was 6 months old. Its a really fine gun for what it was designed for and I still shoot it today at the age of 21. I just have to shoot it when no one is around or people start to make fun of me. And back in November I was given a JCHiggins model 41 (really a Marlin 101) that my long ago deceased grandfather bought at Sears & Roebuck back in the late 50s or early 60s. The poor thing was kept in a lawnmower shed for the majority of it life and wont extract or eject but has out shot my Marlin 39A every time I put the two up against each other. They don't look and sound like it, but they are really fun to shoot.

    I like the H&R brake action 22lr and 22mag for light weight carry pieces. Simple and accurate.

    I have a Savage Stevens Mod. "C" Whippet. Simple, light and very accurate. It has become my favorite Squirrel gun.

    Mine's a Remington 510. It originally belonged to my grandfather, and it's the gun that I learned to shoot with.

    I've got an old Stevens that I got in a package deal with a Colt 1911A1 I really wanted real bad. Co-worker sold me all of his guns and two that were his Dad's. his Dad carried the Colt in Post war Germany as an MP.
    Now another co-worker wants me to GIVE him the Stevens for his son to use. Fat Chance!!

    I've got a Western Auto .22 bolt action single-shot that I bought nearly 50 years ago. Still in perfct shape and shoots well, but it doesn't get used much any more.

    I have a Springfield model 15, circa 1920 or so. Tiny stock, but it shoots well. the Firing pin broke a dozen years ago, but I managed to find a replacement at a gun show.

    I also have a Steven's Springfield model 15 that used to belong to my grandfather. It has a Winchester 99 Thumb Trigger model as a companion and in a few weeks I will add a Winchester 60A to the group.

    I have the Revelation ( Western Auto) version of the Mossberg 320. Well, that is I had it. I gave it to my nephew to get started on firearms.

    I have an old Steven's Springfield 52-A that belonged to my grandfather. The mechanism is somewhat fidgety (extraction and cocking are somewhat hit and miss), but the rifle is an absolute tack driver.

    I have my grandfather's .22 complete with home-made brass front sight he installed. Shoots well, extraction is hit or miss.

    H&R M12 owner here. That thing is spooky accurate...even with Federal plinker ammo.

    My father-in-law has his childhood Springfield Arms 52B in my gunsafe.

    I have a Remington Model 33 that was my granddad's, then my dad's. It has killed more woodpeckers than I could count. The elevator for the rear sight is long gone, but even with the sight sitting flush on the barrel, it will still shoot a group you can cover with a quarter at 25yds. Great gun.
