I'll get a picture when I can...but my "World's Greatest Gun" would be my great-grandfather's 1932 Browning Citori O/U 12ga.

-He bought it as a young lad, gave it to my grandfather (not much of a hunter/shooter) who kept it clean and passed it to my dad.
-My dad used it for pheasant occasionally then packed it up.
-At 12 years old it was given to me and I learned to shoot clays on it. Hopefully one day it will be my son's.

Colt Single Action Army Revolver. The gun that changed history.

The world's greatest handgun is the gun in your hand when you need it most.

That would definetly be my grandfathers 1911 that he gave me, its the same one he carried in the service a true gi model.
Then my single action rugers one in 357, the other in 45 lc. They have everything done to them possible, and were my sass guns, i had 2 of each but times got gard and sold 1 of each caliber.

That's a pretty tough question, but I reckon after all is said and done, I'd have to pick this Ruger:

What is the "World's Greatest Handgun"? - General Handgun Discussion


It's a New Model Super Blackhawk, case colored by Doug Turnbull, rosewood grips by Lett, and a Millett Rear sight.


Or it might be this one, which is with me daily:


What is the "World's Greatest Handgun"? - General Handgun Discussion

It's an old Three Screw .357 Magnum Blackhawk, converted to .44 Special by Dave Clements, case colored by Doug Turnbull, walnut grips by CaryC.

This one is my daily carry gun.
