    I wish I had it; it was my granddad's Winchester, not sure what model (probably a 67). So accurate and easy to shoot for a young boy (first time I shot it my Dad had to rest it on a milk can for me). Ahhh the memories.:D

    That I own, a plastic Remington Model 77. Ugly green plastic stock, goofy plastic mag, and incredibly accurate. Might be a fluke, but does it shoot nicely.

    Remington 572

    My first gun was a Remington 572 Fieldmaster that my dad bought for me nearly 40 years ago, and in my heart that will always be the best shooting gun. Some guns may handle better, shoot faster, or be more accurate, but does that even matter when we are talking favorites?

    Anschutz Mdl 1710 MG but my Ruger 10-22 Target with the action glass bedded into a thumb hole stock that has a 6X Burris target scope mounted on it is more fun to shoot.

    Guys hate it when I bring the remington 511-x to the range. It will shoot with any factory rifle out there today. It has a 6-18x40mm BSA scope on it. You cna not beat an old remmy or mossy. My dad has 2 dozen of the remmys and is getting to 2+dozen on the old mossbergs.

    He just sent me a 513T with a Heavy Barrel on it. I have some work to do to it before it starts to take trips to the Rifle Range. I need to get some taller rings to mount my Weaver Kt-15 15x40m scope on it. The biggest problem right now is the barrel he bought from numrich for it has a sloppy chamber. .003" over sized, I need to send it back to get a replacement for it.

    So far I'm very impressed with my Ruger 96 lever in 22mag. Even shooting hollow points it shoots alot better than I expected.

    X2 on the Remington 512 Sportmaster, bolt action with a tube feed. My grandfather gave it to me for Christmas in 1980. I was 10. I have shot more rounds than I can count through it and it is one amazing shooter. I was stationed in Alaska and had my dad ship it up to me in 91. I bragged to my wife about it's accuracy. She had heard that boast from many people about their guns over the years and figured my boast was the same. After shooting it, when the topic comes up she brags on it for me.:D.

    You didn't state handgun or rifle, so I'll give you my most accurate of each.
    Pistol: Late 70's production S&W model #41
    Rifle: T/C Contender Carbine w/Thumbhole Stock and 21" Target Crowned Barrel.

    Anshutz with Leupold 4X on top shoots great. Also the old Ruger 10/22 is mighty good. Even my grandad's old Ruger MK I pistol still shoots very accurately. That Anshutz, tho, will take out a sparrow's eye at 40 yds. Once drove a nickle into a White Pine with it at 60 yds. As a matter of fact, that was the very first time I ever shot it. I didn't even shoot it a 2nd time for fear I would miss and be exposed. It did go home with me and the plugged nickle that night tho. Been my 16 yr old son's ever since.

    Marlin model 60 semi-auto. Could put 14 rounds inside an inch at 50 yards. Could shot the tacks off the paper targets using CCi 550 box ammo.

    Bought a Beretta Neos semi pistol a few years ago. Put a 4 power simmons on it and can shoot P-dogs to a hundred yards with ease.
