Norinco. the Chinese aren't afraid to violate anyone's patent. So I could get them to make anything I wanted.

I would have to go with Mossberg. A pistol is just a luxury for me. A shotgun is a must have item.

If Americans had only one option? I would become the largest arms smuggler in the world.

I'll go with Ruger... for all the reasons mentioned here AND the fact that they are American made and retail $100 to $150 cheaper than other manufacturers... even imports (and that's saying something these days)... My only wish is that they would make 1) a double barrel and a lever action for the cowboy action shooter to go with the EXCELLENT single actions they make... and 2) a semi-auto OR pump shotgun. Wish they would get into the ammo market too....

Make those and I would definately be a one-company shopper !!!

That would be a tuff one. If only Glock made an AR. I like Glock Semiauto handguns, Smith and Wesson revolvers, Mossberg shotguns, and I really don't have a favorite brand AR.


I would have to pick S&W because their handguns and ARs are ok to me. Lol

as many as i do like, i would have to go with Remington. their R1 series of 1911's, their shotguns and their rifles. their rifles and shotguns come in various styles and types.

Considering that Ruger represents the largest sample in my collection, I'd probably have to go with them.

CZ wasn't an option I had thought of before, but that is a good one to consider.

but I would say Ruger is the most well rounded & economical choice in a few cases. from one company you can get a snub nose revolver, heavy barrel 22 auto, single action revolver, double action revolver, whether they're big bore or rimfire, cheap & reliable centerfire auto handguns, bolt actions, auto rifles in rimfire or centerfire, etc., etc., etc.

If only Mossberg made handguns, they would get my vote instead.
