    Mine is my Marlin 45-70. Cause it is a lever action, cowboy gun. I wish we were still back in those days. It's fun to shoot but kicks like hell.

    I have a NM M1A that I love shooting but my Winchester Model 94 30-30 will always be my favorite. There is just something very special about this gun. It is light and easy to shoot and one of the cheaper ones to buy ammo for.

    I haven't owned/shot too many different guns, but out of the ones I have shot, my Remington 30-06 is my favorite. A close second is a Remington 870 Express 12 ga. :D

    My beautiful Ruger Mark II pistol. She's as accurate as all get out, cheap to feed, easy to shoot and she's scoped. She makes me look like I know what I'm doing behind a gun. LOL She's my 'fun gun' and I love her. Even though she did break my heart by being difficult to put a new safety on........I forgive her. She was just playing hard to get.

    I really like shooting my black powder .50 Hawkin a lot. I makes you slow and make each shot count. I also enjoy my Single Ten, it's cheap to shoot and again being single action it makes you slow down a little. Of course the 1911 is the pistol I shoot best. This is a tough question.

    2nd JohnM - AR15

    Nothing better that cutting sub MOA holes with a free floated 20" then swapping the upper for my LMT M4 with Eotch and keeping 6 pop cans on the air AR the same time!:)

    Great Fun!

    I was medically separated in 97 just before the 240g hit the line units so I never got to play with one.:(

    We had the PIG "M60" and the SAW "M249. I imagine the 240g would be almost like a SAW in 7.62 mm.

    My dad have me a tikka/ithica 25-06 with a heavy 26 inch barrel on it when I got my eagle scout. Never met a bullet it doesn't like. You wouldn't believe what it'll do to a rabbit. Or a deer. Or an elk. Love that gun.

    My favorite would have to be the m1 garand, but it only gets shot about once a year. My favorite regular shooter is on of the 1911's.

    I like my 30-30 most; even though I seem to hit more consistently with my 30-306s.

    Mainly because I can shoot at 400 or so yards fairly inexpensively.
