This is like me, I'm not as accurate with a pistol...

Mine is definitely with the rifle followed by the pistol then the shotgun. But I have spent a lot of time shooting, training and competing with the rifle.

Rifles. I like long distance target shooting.

Shotgun first mostly trap. Pistols second. Haven't messed with my rifles much since a couple of coyotes came through here a few years ago and cleaned out the groundhog & rabbit population. They are just starting to make a comeback this summer.

Rifles first as I'm an ATM hunter ( any thing that moves) if it it legal and puts food on the table I will shoot it. I also use a shotgun for the same thing but usually the .22 is in my hand for small game before the shotgun.

Chuck Connors all the way for me. I love a good rifle. Like shooting them,

field stripping them, cleaning them.

Pistols are great, but once again, primarily for CC.

My shotgun is just for pest control.

I definitely am more accurate with a pistol or revolver than rifles or shotguns. Mostly because the only rifle I shot much growing up were. 22lr or WMR. My dad is of the school of though that centerfire rifles are for hunting, not target shooting. Although, my uncle and I did and still shoot his WW1 and WW2 milsurps. I never did much with a shotgun, besides hunting squirrels with a . 410, up until bulk 12 gauge shells became the only ammo available in my area during the ammo drought.
