Oh this is a tough one



I have had just about every type of regular gun known to man.



I guess I would have to say my Winchester 94 in 30-30



My father gave it to me.



I dont even use it anymore but it aint going anywhere.

Hey David!



That just answered my question from your hunting camp thread... <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' />



I use a Mossberg 590SP 12 gauge with ghost ring sights. Wonderful firearm for all sorts of purposes!

Ruger 10/22. Lots of accessories available to tweak it up. Shoots all day long for very little money. And I am a cheap bastard.

....well, i've got ones that are more useful like my 12 Gauges and rimfires, ...but partly for sentimental reasons and partly for E & E considerations, my mid 90's Savage 112 in 7mm Rem Magnum would have to be it.



anything closer than 300-800 meters that i might need to kill, i'll just trap, stick an arrow shaft through and/or just hawk.

Dear Friends,



This is a question that can get pretty deep- some of my guns are reminders of friends and family now gone, such as my Savage 24, a gift from my Grandfather on my 10th birthday. A first generation High-Standard field model was the constant companion of one of my best friends, now passed.



Others were carried and used in conflicts near and far, such as my inherited S&W Victory Model, carried in WWII, Korea and a short tour in Vietnam.



My Colt Government Model marked my 21st birthday, and is a reminder of the time that I carried a 1911A1 as my issued sidearm. My Ruger P95 I bought when I finished the factory armorers course.



Could it be the gun I shoot the most? Which would, hands down, be my S&W K-22, which seems to go along every range trip. However, it doesn't get carried as much as my Ruger SP101, which is on my hip pretty much most of the time that I'm not actually in uniform or at work. (poor little guy has to stay in the truck...)



I don't think that I could ever pick a favorite.



Regards,



Don Oso

My favorite "right now" is my Ruger Gunsite Scout rifle setup. It will do most anything I need a gun to do these days and make me feel all warm and fuzzy when it is with me in the woods <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/yes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':yes:' />




  1. quick to shoulder and aim

  2. built like a brick sh** house

  3. round ball loads for small game

  4. peep site challenge = fun

  5. bolt action simplicity = fun (I like to cycle the bolt)

  6. enough bang for big scary things

  7. multi-shot mag for zombies

  8. short and handy

  9. ...came that way from the factory!

Well, like Kid, I too have a favorite, my Win 30-30, with Lyman peep sights. However lately I've been carrying my Grampa's old gun, a .303 Enfield with a X30 scope.

Born in the harshness of northern Asia, proven in the sands and jungles of the world, Valmet of Finland set about improving on the AK47 design and made it more accurate and better adapted to assure reliability in all climates.



Such an outstanding improvement of such a reliable and robust design is what two guys decided they must have, so many years ago.



It was a fortuitous change of heart that occurred after a friend and I had ordering the rifles each of us had wanted that led to my respect of this gem whose most often seen relatives are in the hands of less than professional warriors.



I had chosen the model in 7.62x51 for the utility and power of our own military round and he had ordered the AK variant in 7.62x39 with a folding stock, the original round of the original rifle. For our own reasons, by the time the rifles arrived, we had each decided the other’s choice was actually the better one for ourselves; and so, by mutual agreement, we changed rifles upon arrival and did the paperwork with our new choices.



And so it was that I ended up with a Valmet model 76 in 7.62x39 with a milled receiver and a folding tubular stock new in my hands. It is a versatile, accurate, high quality compact firehouse with daytime and factory, flip-over tritium night sights.

This is a tough one. So many fond memories with all my firearms. But right now I think it comes down to my Colt Commander or my Springfield M6 Scout. It's an almost impossible choice, but I think the utilitarian in me would have to go with the M6 Scout. On top of the COOL factor the M6 is a freaking tack driver!

My favorite firearm, as measured by the number of rounds I continue to put through it, is my Marlin 981T. It's accurate, simple and rugged, and its tubular magazine will feed virtually anything I care to chamber. If, by some freak chance, its Nikon 4x fixed-power craps out, its fixed sights are fairly functional. Best of all, I can shoot it all weekend for pocket change, so I'm good with it.



Just don't ask me about the runner-up. That's where the call starts getting harder to make.
