If you could own only one out of your collection which one woulr you keep?

I own several. My favorites are my Remington Sendero stainless fluted barrel in 7 mag; Browning 3" magnum auto-5 shotgun I bought in 1965 new for $139 (Belgium, and birdseye stock); my Sig 357 magnum pistol auto; and my trusty S&W Highway Patrolman model 357 mag revolver.

It would be a hard decision, but I think I would keep the Browning if for nothing more than old time sake and dependability.....sort of an all around piece of equipment.

I own 5 Ruger 1022s...they are a lot of fun, and very inexpensive to shoot...they might be my favorites.

What about you?

I agree, I also have a Ruger 10/22 and they are cheap and fun to shoot.

For a carry, my choice would be the Walther PPK 6+1. At slightly over 1 inch wide it is the ideal concealed weapon for a city boy, particuarly in an ankle, or drop shoulder rig.

The 7 shot capacity is a bit low, but I believe if you can't hit it in 2 you shouldn't be shooting anyway

Just an "inefficient, disfavored retailer" trying to make a living.

I have matched pair of Remington Ducks Unlimited Shotguns. One is an 870 and the other is an 1100.
An Ithica 650 over and under, a Beretta Trap Special. Also I have a Colt 45 single action that is about 130 years old.

Tape it.....It'll work.

My Ruger 50 caliber black powder rifle, another fun shoot...very accurate.

A fine handgun to carry concealed is the 38 caliber snub nose S&W with the shrouded hammer. I bought my daughter one of these. They won't hang on anything such as your purse strap or your pocket.

My wife will not carry a gun. She thinks she might accidentally shoot herself.

Are there any women on this board that like guns?

The real figures from Down Under.

It has been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a
new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our

own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500
million dollars.

The first year results are now in: Australia-wide, homicides are up
3.2 percent, Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent; Australia-
wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent!) In the
state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300%.
(Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the
criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!)

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in
armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in
the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their

prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of
the elderly. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how
public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense

was expended in "successfully ridding Australian society of guns."

You won't see this data on the American evening news or hear your
governor or members of the state Assembly disseminating this

The Australian experience proves it. Guns in the hands of honest
citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect
only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note, Americans, before it's to late!
