    ok start, but a single action over a 1911? for shame. a single action isnt that iconic, then again i was born when the world already had color tv and automatic transmissions. If someone held me up with a single action i would have to describe it as "some old ass cowboy gun".

    The single action changed firearms forever. Made it soooo much quicker and easier to use a firearm.

    I think the 1911 is one of the greatest guns ever and I love it but the single action defines the old west. Also these guns are not my favorite guns but the AK everone knows it same with the m16 family the Remington 870 most sold shot gun so I stand by my list in some ways.

    1. 1911
    2. M16/AR/M4
    3. AK-47
    4. FN FAL
    5. Ma Deuce

    i understand the importance just not iconic enough to pic out in a group of old cowboy shooters. you can almost guesstimate the approx age of people by their lists, this is cool.

    Really? How old am I?

    Colt 1873 SAA
    Colt 1911
    M1 Garand
    AK-47
    AR-15/M16/M4

    A few honorable mentions would include the Winchester 1873 repeating rifle, M1903 Springfield, SKS, Mosin Nagant, Remington Model 700, Winchester Model 70, and the Remington 870. :D

    mosin? m1? wow, im surprised you know how to work a computer at your age. naw man, i just based my list off of what i liked to fire, and what i remember people carrying the most. im guessing the old you are, the older the weapons.
