Mac 10 is definately on of my favorites. <IMG SRC="http://www2.netdoor.com/~mikemor/swdm109.jpg";

07-22-2001, 01:59 PM
M11 would have to be one of my other favorites. :D <IMG SRC="http://www2.netdoor.com/~mikemor/m12.jpg";

you've got bigger problems than any gun can handle.

Gimme my 'ol S&W .44 Mag with the extended barrel. The "Dirty Harry Special", but with a longer barrell.

Then again, I also like my Delta Elite.

Just sumpin' 'bout revolvers...

07-22-2001, 02:48 PM
Oh, come on head. You know they are a lot of fun to shoot ;) I think you are reffering to the 8 3/4" barrell.

07-22-2001, 02:48 PM
Potato gun....

Sorry guys, I don't hunt.......I just like loud noises and things going splat!....:D

You mean like Rich Gannon's loud scream after he went splat under Siragusa. :D

Sorry for the interruption, guys.

We now return to to your original subject.:cool:

Favorites out of the collection:

Pistol: .454 Casull. (total hand cannon, makes a .44 mag look like a pea shooter) I take it into the backcountry where the grizzly population hangs out in the event of trouble. Also use as a backup gun in the same area when elk hunting.

Rifle: .300 Ultra Mag.....Stainless, black non-shine stock with a 4x12x50mm Leupold stainless scope. Great for anything from speed goat to moose to bear, depending on the load.

Shotgun: Browning gold cup 12 gauge semi-auto for upland and duck. For geese and turkey, Browning gold cup 10 gauge semi-auto.

Plinker: Several .22 rifles and a 220 swift along with several pistols. Great for spanking the local gopher population.

Wall Hanger: I have a fantastic 1889 Winchester 32 special over the fireplace above the buffalo mount. (still works well) Was my great grandfathers.

Just for the hell of it: AK-47 with several LARGE clips.

Rangefinder: Nikon Laser 800 8x28 4.5. Works like a champ!!

07-22-2001, 04:12 PM
Marlin 12 guage goose gun, 36" barrel, bolt action

Remington 1100 12guage, semi-automatic, pro-point scope

Thompson .60calibur black powdre rifle.

The wife is gonna let me get my 1st bow with our little tax reimbursement, and i'm totally psyched about it.

My father, now THERE'S a guy with a gun collection........

Redhead - The first time I ever fired a .44 Magnum, my friend (?) didn't warn me of the recoil. The gun went up over my head while the hammer took a chunk out of my right thunb. (I didn't know I would do the bleeding!!!). My buddy said " That's the .44 magnum, kills at one end, maims at the other".

07-22-2001, 07:22 PM
I don't own a gun, but if I did, it would probably be one of these.

My pops has a Contender, ever heard of one? Itís a single shot, breech-loading handgun made specifically for long range shooting. The cool feature with one of these is that the barrel can be easily changed, by removing a single pin, to allow firing several different size rounds. Dad has barrels for .22 Magnum and .223 on up to a .45-70. Iíve shot it with the .45-70 barrel, and some of his hot reloads, and I swear that I canít hit $h!t with it. The recoil is so huge, I flinch as Iím squeezing the trigger every time. Iíve fired a .44 Magnum before and if your not ready the recoil can catch you by surprise, but even that is nothing compared to that Contender with the .45-70 round in it.

Louisville Slugger...34in 33oz...smooth, natural...and never runs out of ammo!:cool:

07-22-2001, 08:11 PM
My collection isn't anything special but Ranch Leighty is well equipped.

.20 gauge pump inside the master bedroom closet

.22 semi auto rifle with a large banana clip in the closet of my office

and a Beretta semi auto pistol under the mattress.

I live in a nice neighborhood with full time security patrol and an alarmn system on my house but I sleep much better knowing that I can take matters into my own hands if necessary.

07-22-2001, 08:12 PM
You might want to rethink your choice Cannible. I had a friend who owned one of those things. The thing is huge and the ammo cost over $1 a round a couple of years ago. :eek: Makes for expensive target practice and I'd have to dislike someone a lot to waste $1 a shot at them.

My Taurus 7-shot .357 Mag with 2" ported barrell gives me plenty of firepower. Not very good for long distances but good for what it's meant for.

07-22-2001, 09:33 PM
Beretta Model 96, .40 S&W.

Most guys carry glocks and that is a fine gun, but it has no character, it is just kind of blah. I like something with a little style. Also it hasn't let me down yet, never a jam or misfire, and when it is a potential life and death situation that is all that really counts.

Runners Up:
Colt AR-15, .223, Law Enforcement Model (shortened barrel, collapsable stock, select fire)

Benelli, 12 gauge, semi-auto, 7 round magazine

Ruger 10-22 .22 caliber (optional 50 round mag) quite possibly the funnest plinker ever made


Bob Dole
07-22-2001, 09:40 PM
Bob Dole's favorite is the Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 mag w/8.5" barrel. Replaced the narrow, stock walnut grips with a set of Pachmyrs so she fits Bob Dole's paw better. Have successfully hunted whitetail with it and had a blast.

Second is the old Colt Trooper Mk III .357 mag w/8" barrel. Bought it from a Po-Po is Raytown way back when, and haven't found a listing for the Trooper with that length barrel.

The old Colt .45 Government Model Mk IV with factory Pachmyrs and satin nickel finish is the one Bob Dole carries when the need arises (which isn't often).

the only rifle Bob Dole owns is a Winchester Model 100 in the .243. Sweet weapon for coyotes, whitetails, etc in the open, but worthless as **** on a boar in brush. Bob Dole's father has a significant collection that will be Bob Dole's one day, so Bob Dole hasn't felt it necessary to purchase anything else. (Though Bob Dole would like to kick him for selling the old Ithacas to buy a d@mned Franchi and a Baretta...)

07-22-2001, 10:24 PM
My favorite is a Sig Saur 9mm.

The balance works for me.

I recently went to the range and had the dealer line up a nice selection for me and then proceeded to try them out.

I surprised myself at how much more accurate I was with the Sig.

not much of a marksman with a handgun, but could be lethal with bob dole's .243 ...

Don't own a gun of any sort (see nothing wrong with it, just don't own one...) but if I did, I'd probably have a Walther PPK just for kicks, 'cause I've always liked James Bond movies. You guys probably all know this, but it's the gun "M" made 007 give up his Beretta for in Dr. No. ;)

"Walther PPK. 7.65 ml., with a delivery like a brick through a plate glass window. Takes a Brausch silencer with very little reduction in muzzle velocity. The American CIA swear by them."

-Major Boothroyd to 007 in "A View to a Kill."

Taurus PT 101 Blue .40 cal 15+1.

Ruger SP 101 .357 5-shot with ankle holster. A miniature cannon. (Mrs. Michigan also carries one)

Various home defense shotguns. Favorite-Mossberg 12-guage. 6-shot capacity, 18 1/2" cylinder bore barrel.

Daily carry and my personal favorite Taurus 669 .357 blue with Hogue grip.

Beautiful balance fits well in my hand and allows me true gun control.

Fitting the second bullet inside the first bullet hole.

07-23-2001, 12:14 AM
my favorite all-time weapons
M79=40mm grenade "bloop gun"

MK-19= rapid fire 40mm grenade launcher, ever need to clear out an area this is the weapon to do it.

M-14 =7.62x59mm magazine fed rifle that was developed in thhe late 50's for the US fighting force, was replaced by M-16's made by Mattel...IMO big mistake at the time

M231=port firing weapon, version of M-16, ever need a trench full of troops cleared out this one will do it, fires approx. 1500 rounds per minute. Watch out it loves to rise on long bursts, short controlled bursts of fire eliminate this problem.

That was like driving down memory lane

07-23-2001, 06:01 AM
You guys have an unhealthy fascination with firearms. Can't you save it for the next NRA meeting or the next time your hanging around postal workers? Of course there's no better way of feeling like a man then slaughtering innocent animals.

Feel free to share your favorite vegetable harvesting devices instead, Punkin.

07-23-2001, 06:53 AM
it's all I need (and I don't hunt). In favorite order:

Browning Hi-Power Mark 4 - 9mm, 13 rounds, awesome.

M1 Carbine - someday I'll get a Garand, but this thing is just pure fun, especially with 30-rd mag.

Rossi 951 .38 Special - 4 inch barrel, ventilated rib, nice revolver.

Cooter Z Chief got me thinking about favorite weapons I've fired (but unfortunately can't own):

120mm smoothbore cannon on M1A1 tank - APFSDS (Armor Piercing Fin Stabilized Discarding Sabot) round is faster than a mile a second; can "reach out and touch" over 3 kilometers.

M2 cal .50 - a traditional favorite that has withstood the test of time; good out to 1800 meters.

M240 COAX MG (also on tank) - 7.62mm, quick change barrels...lase and blaze!

(...only uses the heavy-duty ordnance at work and against bad guys.)

07-23-2001, 07:39 AM
My favorite gun is my 28 Ga. Browning Quail Unlimited Upland Special. I own gun #46 of only 100 that were made. My wife bought it for me for Christmas a few years back. What a woman!

Kind of a tough call. But I think it's my old Model 94 Winchester. Doesn't shoot that flat or put M.O.A. groups on paper but it has a certain something. It is a pleasure to shoot and when your in the thick stuff it just jumps to my shoulder and instantly has the target in it's sights. When I'm out in the open my 06 is superior in range accuracy and power so I use it. But any Bambi unlucky enough to be inside a 150 yards of my old 30-30 is in serious trouble.

07-23-2001, 09:31 AM
Sigh..... Everytime the subject of guns comes up, some moron has to bring up that tired old stigma about postal workers. Hey PunkinDrublic, how about something ORIGINAL!! As for gun ownership, I keep an old S&W .357 Magnum 'Highway Patrolman' in the sock drawer. Unloaded, of course, for Mrs. PostalChief's sanity. But the speedloaders are within quick grasp.

07-23-2001, 10:27 AM

You have a unhealthy fixation with bleeding hearts, lost causes and pole smoking...

I don't own a gun, but if I were, it'd be a MAN'S GUN, like this one:


Don't think it'd fit under my matress, though.

:p :D

~Thinks if you're going to do it, do it right!

07-23-2001, 03:15 PM

the problem with THAT gun is you can't see what you hit. You have to have another guy radio you to tell you if you are any good.

I'll have to side with Warrior5. A tank with a 120mm smooth bore beats everything. In Desert Storm, there was documented kills at 7000 meters!! I bet there would be longer shots but a little thing got in the way...curvator of the earth.

Favorite gun that you can carry...barely, again have to go with Warrior5
- the Ma Duece 50 cal. Truely a Hoot to fire.

Favorite gun that you can put in your pocket
- a beebee gun pistol. 5 bucks gets you 1,000 rds. Don't need much of a back stop, not noisey, and the best way to hone your pistol firing. It has been one of the best investments for my marksmanship.


07-23-2001, 04:30 PM

"the Ma Duece 50 cal. Truely a Hoot to fire."

I got to fire one when I was stationed in Germany. We were actually at the range to re-qualify with the M-60, but D Bat. was already there with the .50 Cal and a bunch of rounds to use up, so they invited us over to fire it.
After running a few hundred rounds through that beast, the M-60 just didnít have the same appeal.

"You guys have an unhealthy fascination with firearms. Can't you save it for the next NRA meeting or the next time your hanging around postal workers? Of course there's no better way of feeling like a man then slaughtering innocent animals."

Punkin: You sound like a tree hugging freak. Go slap on the PETA shirt, sit around the campfire and sing kumbyeya and see where it gets you sport. Those of us who own guns and or hunt could give a rats a$$.

07-23-2001, 10:19 PM
Yeah, ya gotta watch 'dat recoil! I saw a guy clip his nose pretty good once with one. My dad didn't tell me about the kick on his old Win model 12 when I was merely a pup. It just about knocked me to the ground, and my shoulder hurt for days.

Fav rifle whilst growing up: .22 Browning semi-auto. Holds about 16 in the stock, and really lightweight. Wow, did I love that gun.

Coot, Warrior, you guys are lucky sumbucks!

I'm glad the good guys have the bad toys...

07-23-2001, 11:32 PM
Garands can be purchased through the government, they have used Garands that may not or may need to be taken to a gunsmith to operate properly for $400. You can also opt to buy a M-1 that has been converted to a "match grade" rifle for $600. There are stipullations on who can purchase these old US rifles, miltary members qualify to be able to purchase 1 based upon the weapons training/ qualification they recieve. Civilians wishing to purchase these rifles have to complete a training program then be certified to puchase them. IMO this is a great deal, $400-600 for a US government Garand cannot be beat.

I'd appreciate it if you would refrain from calling me "Markie." Only my sister can call me that. Otherwise, I'll have to borrow one of the fine firearms from a fellow board member ... ;)

~~Not afraid to take matters into his own hands.

07-24-2001, 07:40 AM
I've known about the Garand program for a while, but every time I'd get ready to buy one, something more important came up (kids' braces, Chiefs tickets, etc.). However, I do have a tax rebate coming, hmmmm.....
Purchasing what is arguably the finest military rifle <B>ever</B> made is a worthwhile investment. Depending on the condition of the Garand, one could easily quadruple his money if he sold it in 2 years.

No insult intended...just from past experience gun bunnIEs have names like mikIE, jeffIE, scottIE, thus markIE. I also understand about sisters, they somehow get away with stuff that nobody else can. Always have and always will. They can push just the right buttons to make me go balistic as well.

One thing that I will give cannon cockers, nothing else will make a grid square disappear!!

I'm offended! I belong to PETA, People for Eating Tasty Animals.

Besides, it's a lot more humane than the conditions some food animals live in. Chickens and veal calves come to mind. Or how 'bout a large scale hog ranch? I know I'd like to live in my own excrement for the span of my life!

Damn bleedin' hearts...

07-25-2001, 09:43 AM
Get it through your tiny little redneck minds, I don't care what you do with your weapons I just think it's pathetic that you have to justify your manhood by how much firearms you own. If I want to eat a steak, bacon or other animal product I'll buy it from the supermarket like most normal people do. Calling me a tree hugging homosexual is such a right wing thing to say. Oh and postal chief I didn't create the stigma attatched to postal workers it's a known fact that the post office has the highest number of cases of people coming back and shooting their fellow employees.

07-25-2001, 08:49 PM
Punkin: Yea, whatever PETA boy. You go to the local market and buy your eggs and steak. I'll hit the mountains and get my steaks and burger. If you don't warm up to that, I could give a rats A$$.;)

My favorite weapon is the cobalt-salted nuclear device dubbed the "Doomsday Weapon". It was basically an oil tanker converted into the biggest friggin' nuclear bomb ever conceived, and it would've cruised up and down the western coast of Russia.

It was designed by the Soviets at the height of the Cold War, but never built (even Kruschev {sp?} said no to it) . Upon detonation, it would have released enough radiation to wipe out most, if not all of the human race.

Why **** around with one lousy bullet at a time?

Winchester Model 94 30/30

My favorite deer rifle for my brushy tree stand

07-27-2001, 11:13 AM
This has to be my favorite pistol to fire of all time. Mine is a 1959 model, formerly used by the German police department before they went to the H&Ks. My two magazines are from 1959 and 1961 and they still work like a dream. Smooth and very pleasant to shoot.

I've fired the Colt 1911 and the Berretta. I still prefer my old Walther to either.
