The official, what’s your favourite and my wife won’t let me get this

Recommended Posts

Guest Derek L

The topic is rather self explanatory and I’ll start:

My favourite:

(Semi) Automatic pistols:

Bar none, the John Browning linage, my 1911 and Hi-Power

Wheel Guns:

Smith & Wesson territory, the 586/686 and no one’s day can be made without a Model 29

Shotguns:

Semi-Auto: Browning Auto-5

Pump: 870 Wingmaster (stay away from the Express models)

Rimfire:

Ruger 10/22 & SR-22 and Ruger Standard models

Bolt Action Rifles:

Lee Enfield No 4 various marks

I’d just purchased a Mauser K98 (Sniper model with Zeiss optics) that could give it a run for it’s money….TBD

Lever Action:

Winchester 94.……Is there anything else?

Pump Action:

Remington 760.…..Is there anything else?

Semi-Auto (Civilian):

Ruger Mini 14 and 30s

Semi-Auto (Military)

M1 Garand with the Russian SKS a close second

What I’d like:

Colt Python

Colt Peacemaker (original, not reproduction)

Colt/ArmaLite/Bushmaster AR-15

M2 Browning (If I retire in the States)

Swiss Arms Black Rifle

get your gun freak on, hey?

Hey, Shakyhands suggested the idea to get the technical aspects out of the political threads……I thought you decried political discussion threads that turn into jingoistic chest thumping of manufactures stats?

The Mini 14 and AK-47 (NATO) are the only weapons I've ever owned. I mean NEVER owned you government spies.

:unsure:

The Mini-14 s are great…….they throw spent casings as far as bullets……And about as accurate too!

As for Government Spies, over a third of my firearms are restricted anyways…….if a NDP Government looks to be taking power, that’s when I "sell" all my non-restricted (sans a few hunting rifles & shotguns) firearms ;)

One pal has a special area in the bush where he buried the more pricy ones he owns that the government might steal. Grease n' all.

promise... will you enforce it? Seems to me, MLW has had the "Favourite Plane" thread forever... hasn't stopped the PorchDog (and friends) from continually flooding any and every thread with jingoistic military propaganda/paraphernalia/trivia/etc.

I owned a cap pistol when I was a kid. I don't know what model it was. It looked like this:

My mommy said I was allowed to have it...

I remember I liked my gun, but I don't play with them now.

I’m not a moderator and have little interest in rereading all 17 F-35 threads……..That said, when the political fencing turns into a discussion relating to the technical ways and means of a topic, one can expect thread drift.

Nice.

With that wee 10 pack you could start arming a small African nation...shhhhhhh. They could all wear berets and Che T-shirts. Classic stuff.

That’s interesting, my mommy didn’t mind me having a real guns when I was kid………You have no hobbies or interests as an adult? How boring.

Actual 7.62?

7.62x39 FMJ.........And thousands of rounds......feeds the SKS's, CZ 858 and Ruger Mini 30..

The surplus ammo with corrosive primers is even cheaper.....

I’ve got thousands of rounds of Chinese ammo from the 80s and 90s and some corrosive Czech ammo (for the Zombie Apocalypse) from the late 70s and early 80s………NATO 7.62x51 ( = Civilian .308 Winchester) and NATO 5.56x45 ( = Civilian .223 Remington) is released at times to the public but get’s snapped up quick……..Even .303 British still comes up once in a while…..

It's cheaper then buying factory ammo , but can be hard on many commercial, civilian rifles.

Of course, the Zombie Apocalypse. I mean...what else??

:lol:

I still love the Lee-Enfield...but, the bolts can get pretty sloppy with time. Need a fired once dropped once from Singapore or something.
