45-70 Guide Gun. The Texas white tails can be easily taken with a .223, almost all the black bears are gone, but I just like tossing a 340 gr hard cast bullet at 2100 fps. You never know when a telephone pole will get in the way of your target.

Mine would probably be the Sig p220 sport I own . I would love to carry it and still might but it's all steel and thicker than a 1911 . I have to find the right holster for it.

My childhood .22 bolt gun and childhood .410 shotty are too small for me to properly shoulder, now; i guess that is my most "impractical" firearms. OK, well there is the single shot BP pistol, but if smokeless powder runs out, that could become my favorite.

Single shot .410, not really practical for much other than personal challenges hunting. I have a collection of break action shot guns in 12g, both single and double barreled. They can pretty much do anything the .410 with a lot more energy.

I'd never sell it, for some odd reason we are attached.

I would say mine would be my FN 5.7. I really like this little gun, and I shoot it every so often, but since I have a light mounted on it, I haven't really found any holsters that I like that I would actually carry this thing.

Mine would be a daisy red ryder! Bought just to mess around with in the back yard

3 different 9MM (Beretta, Browning, Glock) 4 different .45s (3 Colts and one Sig P220 from 1995!), and last but not least a SW Model 19 .38spl/.357 Texas Ranger commemorative. The most useless gun I own is the Sig P229 in .40 that I was looking at the other day but have not bought it yet. Do I really need another caliber???

Not really mine, I'm keeping it for my son, an FÉG PMK-380. It's uncomfortable to shoot and uses a marginally effective, expensive round. Cute little bugger, though.
