Currently, my 1944 Lee Enfield. Soon to be a M1 Garand once I'm able to get to the CMP

My Savage 93F in .22 WMR. Better wind resistance than an LR with little sound and no real noticeable recoil.
I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.

Easy to answer. Remington 700 30-06, topped with Nikon Buckmaster 3-9 x 40.

It shoots exactly where I aim it. Let's me know I shot it by giving me a little "love-tap" on the shoulder. Doesn't need expensive or hand loaded rounds either. I'm a simple guy who likes things dependable and solid. This gun epitomizes that.

On that same theme, my Ruger 10/22 wins for toy/plinker shooting. But for me it is a stretch to mention this as a rifle......badder than a BB gun though

My AR-15 with a Leapold 2-9 x 40, I play golfing game with it from, probably the most fun I've ever had at the range.

Ever since this thread started,it got me thinking about a favorite rifle.
I can't name just one rifle,I have favorites for every type of shooting/hunting that I do.

Rimfires-My favorites are a Glenfield 60,a modified Ruger 10/22T,and a Remington 552 Speedmaster

Varmint hunting-I always take my RRA 20" Varminter AR15 and Savage 12FLVSS 223's,and my Savage 110FLP 25/06.

Deer hunting-That's a no brainer! Savage 110FLP 25/06,10FCP 308,or the 12FLV 7mm-08 that I recently assembled.

Elk hunting- Remington 1903A3 sporter 30/06 or Savage 110FLP 300WM with my hunting barrel/stock on it.

Hog hunting- 458 SOCOM,223's,25/06,7mm-08,or 308.They all knock'em down.

Target shooting-All of the above rifles,but the Savage 223 and 25/06 would be favorites over the rest.It's really hard to shoot bad with these rifles.

Favorite to shoot is my S&W 15-22, because I don't think about cost every time I pull the trigger.

My new favorite paper puncher is a .260 Rem. Near the same external ballistics as the .300 Win. Mag. I shoot.


It's a Spartan Precision Rifle on a 591 Surgeons reciever with a 26" Bartlein #7 MTU contour Barrel in a McMillan A-5.

I really like shooting my Mosins, or my AK, or bolt .06, but if I had to get back to just one "shooter" it would be the old Winchester M-190, tube fed .22. Even when I am broke I can shoot to my hearts content with the .22.

Marlin 1894c 357mag. Great brush gun and a blast at the range. + I like a long/handgun combo in the same caliber.
