    Well, the article is pretty much tongue in cheek- but I DO own 8 of the 10. However, the flaw in his base premise- my 12 yr old grandaughter shooting partner shoots 7 of the 10. So much for the "manly-viking-man" thing!:rolleyes:

    The list cut in, but read the article. Good for a smile. Would just substitute the Redhawk 44 for the 29 and a pre-64 Win Mod 70 for the K31, and the M1 Garand for the Nagant for my list. FWIW

    Yeah that is close, but you have to have the M14, M21, M25 in the list somewhere.

    Any list that is listed as the "manliest" and includes the Glock automatically gets disqualified.

    That, and he doesn't list the most popular boltgun for tactical ( read Alpha Male-ness ) applications in the Remington 700.

    Double Fail.

    Man or just crazy

    If you talking truly manly, my vote goes to the Holland and Holland 600 Nitro Express. That one heck of a double rifle. Even a 450 Nitro express with a 480 gr. bullet makes for some quite interesting watching. I have seen some pretty good flinches even when the hammer was dropped on a empty chamber. H.J.

    If you only have one of the list, are you a democrat? :eek:

    Well, I know it's a poorly constructed list because the Garand isn't on it.... :D

    Where's the Taurus .454 Casuall Raging Bull? As far as shotguns go, the Mossberg 500 3" chamber is more manly than the 870. Then again, you can go 3-1/2" shells now, but is that manly or stupid? If it is about weight or kick, then forget any .45 autos, unless it is a newer Hi-Point. Kick will put it in your forehead if you don't know what you are doing. Seriously, though, aren't all guns cool? If you won't own a .22 lr revolver because it is not manly in your opinion, you aren't a gun lover. Not kidding, MANLY guns? Heck, even the military trains females to shoot the biggest guns. If you equate your manliness to your guns, then you have bigger problems than a little penis. :eek:

    I'd move #6 higher up that list, but this one is far better than the first.

    I like Sgt. Miller's list, although a few of those items might be a bit hard to come by, even for a motivated buyer. Here is my list, ranking in no particular order:

    1. 1903 Springfield.

    2. M1 Garand.

    3. Remington Model 700 or Winchester Model 70 (pre '64).

    4. Colt Model 1911.

    5. Smith & Wesson Model 29.

    6. Colt Python (or maybe a Smith & Wesson Model 19 or 66).

    7. Winchester 94.

    8. AR platform rifle.

    9. Glock 17.

    10. Any respectible .22 LR. I like the Ruger MKII heavy barrel.

    I was tempted to put the Mauser 98 on my list, but since the 1903 Springfield is basically a Mauser copy and considering what the Marines did with them at Belleau Wood, I figured it deserved the spot on my list.

    I also like Glock pistols, and think that striker-fired tupperware has made enough of an impact over the last 30 years that it deserves spot on my list.

    It doesn't matter what someone says is manly, It's all just someone's opinion and we all have at least one of those.

    I am not sure that any firearm that can drop it's intended target before said target can even hear the bang should be callled manly. Manly should be more about being close enough to see your target draw its' final breath and to put yourself at risk as well.
