My beautiful Ruger Mark II pistol. She's as accurate as all get out, cheap to feed, easy to shoot and she's scoped. She makes me look like I know what I'm doing behind a gun. LOL She's my 'fun gun' and I love her. Even though she did break my heart by being difficult to put a new safety on........I forgive her. She was just playing hard to get.

I really like shooting my black powder .50 Hawkin a lot. I makes you slow and make each shot count. I also enjoy my Single Ten, it's cheap to shoot and again being single action it makes you slow down a little. Of course the 1911 is the pistol I shoot best. This is a tough question.

Nothing better that cutting sub MOA holes with a free floated 20" then swapping the upper for my LMT M4 with Eotch and keeping 6 pop cans on the air AR the same time!

Great Fun!

I was medically separated in 97 just before the 240g hit the line units so I never got to play with one.

We had the PIG "M60" and the SAW "M249. I imagine the 240g would be almost like a SAW in 7.62 mm.

My dad have me a tikka/ithica 25-06 with a heavy 26 inch barrel on it when I got my eagle scout. Never met a bullet it doesn't like. You wouldn't believe what it'll do to a rabbit. Or a deer. Or an elk. Love that gun.

My favorite would have to be the m1 garand, but it only gets shot about once a year. My favorite regular shooter is on of the 1911's.

I like my 30-30 most; even though I seem to hit more consistently with my 30-306s.

Mainly because I can shoot at 400 or so yards fairly inexpensively.

I agree, the 10/22 is one of the few guns that offers an entire days worth of fun for under twenty dollars.
Oh, and it is my girlfriends favorite also, so the variety of shooting games that we come up with are just about endless.
