    What is your most favorite gun? What gun do you like the best to hunt with?

    I always have to qualify a question like this with "favorite for what?". I enjoy varminting (pest elimination) and my #1 rifle for that is a heavy-barreled Rem 700BDL in .22-250 with a Weaver 16X Micro-Trac scope, and my back-up is a Howa heavy-barreled .223 with a 10X Mil-Dot scope. Both are very accurate.
    My primary "general purpose" rifle is a Winchester Model 70 Lightweight Carbine in .250 Savage, topped by a Redfield 3-9X scope.
    Photos of these rifles and others are in my profile.

      That varies from time to time, often depending on which one is seeing the most use in any given month.
      Presently, I have been shooting my Colt Woodsman pistol for target practice, and relearning its many virtues after being packed away in storage for many months.

              Favorite is a Savage in 22-250 with a Nikon 8 x 35 x 50 Monarch scope because it is so doggone accurate. Favorite hunting rifle changes from time to time; right now it is a Sako Finnbear in 30-06 Sprng with a Zeiss 3 x 9 x 40 scope.

                  May as well ask who my favorite child is, in that it is impossible to answer.

                        Well said, Proverbs. Just like my kids, some days I like one better than the other.
                        My favorite shotgun is the Belgian made Browning Superposed 12 ga. I got for high school graduation in 1963, and my current favorite rifle is the Savage 11 in 7mm-08. Favorite handgun is a Glock 22 .40 cal.

                          tought to beat an 870 12. You can hunt just about any game with it in North America and it dosent break the bank to shoot it. I got an 887 two christmases ago and while I like my old school 870...but the new kid on the pump shotgun block at Remington isint a slouch either. I really like my Savage .17HMR to...really excited about the new .17 caliber cartrige and rifle coming out at the end of the summer! Gotta find a way to get my grubby little paws on one!

                            Are you supposed to have a favorite? Kind of like having a favorite child. If I expressed a favorite gun, the rest would get jealous, break out in rust spots and a rash of the missed shot syndrome, and just generally misbehave. It has taken years and some good advice from Petzal (Beat um' regularly!) to raise a good crop of well behaved firearms. I will NOT jeopardize that happy state of affairs by naming a favorite, which will probably change tomorrow, anyway.

                              My hunting habits and firearm collection are too complex for one favorite firearm. Some of my favorites are old friends with long histories. An old Remington Custom Shop 40X single shot, bull barrel, in 22/250; an 06 customized by Frank Pachmeyer; a 300 Win Mag by Monty Kennedy; a 375 by Ike Ellis; a 416 Rigby by Griffin & Howe; and a 470 Nitro Express by LeBeau Courally. These have all been used hard and will never be sold.

                              Believe have written these comments before, many apologies.
