Question by KMB33. Uploaded on April 23, 2009
Mine would probably be the Thompson Center Icon. Then again, i am young, i have no steady job, and my mom sees no reason for me to buy a gun that "I wouldnt be able to use on anything but varmints" and "Just use dads gun".
i think an ar-something or other would be nice but there a bit pricy
LAR Grizzly MkI, .45 Winchester Magnum, Automatic Pistol
A Barrett .50 cal with a Thermal Scope and Bipod. Or a Ruger No. 1 single shot in .243. The latter would be much more useful but the first would have that "look what I got" factor working for it.
Bespoke Purdy double in 28 guage.
willkills what is the point of it if it isnt pricey?
Barrett .50 cal with all the add-ons (Scope, spare mags, bipod, ect...)
I had a cheap .410 bolt action with a busted stock that was stolen a few years ago. I'd give $1,000 to have it back. It was my grandfathers.
wincherter model 70 deluxe feather weight and or winchester 101 select o/u
When you find one of those let me know. I want it.
Nosler custom .300 WSM
Benelli Super Black Eagle 2
AA12 full auto 12 ga.
Browning Sweet 16 with a gold trigger, and a Savage 20 ga./ .22 over under. I'm in college and firearm funding is on the back burner, but one day they will be mine.
I saw a vic. mounted "Mini-gun" (4500 rounds per min,)
LOVE TO HAVE THAT WEAPON. It was on "Myth Busters"(shooting fish in a barrel),check it out !!
Ruger Red Label Engraved 20 gauge. O/U
A Dakota roundbody in any gauge would make my day.
Winchester 30/30. I cant find this gun and I have always wanted it.
Browning Superposed Diana Grade 12 Gauge.
Minigun on AC130 gunship Puff.
An automatic machine gun. Preferable a Thomson. I also want a .223 assult rifle.
A nice Ruger No. 1 single shot rifle in .30-06 or .308. Brushed stainless 26" bbl.
I cannot justify that kind of cash. When I had it, I bought other stuff.
I already had the epitome of rifles, an H&K SL-7, but sold it.
When I was a freshman in high school, a friend of the family allowed me to use his Remington Rolling Block rifle, chambered in 7x57mm Mauser. He purchased it from years before from Bannerman's for "about $15". Though used and bruised, it was accurate and served as this gentleman's whitetail deer rifle in Upstate NY. I regarded it as an antique, but it was fun to shoot. I was unable to find another, but when the Ruger #1 was introduced to the market less than 10 years later, I examined and admired one, saved for it and eventually purchased one (in 7x57mm). I never regretted the purchase; it's a pleasure to shoot.
When word was published that Remington would reintroduce the rolling block rifle, I was definitely interested. Indeed, that rifle is now available through the Custom Shop, but the price seems out of proportion to the design effort, and other priorities in my life have moved to the forefront, so I don't think I see a Remington rolling block in my gun safe. Lone Star Rifle makes a fine piece of equipment, but that's a $2,000 price tag. No, I don't believe I see a rolling block in my foreseeable future.
i would hav to say eather a 30-30 or my dads pump 12g shotgun.
A Krieghoff Essencia Boxlock in 28 ga.
An automatic machine gun. Preferable a Thomson. I also want a .223 assult rifle.
any automatic gun
blaser 93 selous- in 3oo win mag or 375 H&H-
A 4-bore(double barrel) for Africa.
Vietnam era M-14
I thought and decided and decided on a fully accesorized Barret 50. machine gun, or a BAR. Both would be loads of fun i think.
AR-15 in .223 and a Barrett M82A1 .50
SPRINGFIELD M-14 - NO SCOPES, NO BIPODS. OLDER VERSION WITH FULL AUTO SELECTOR WOULD BE PLUS - BUT THEN I'D NEED BI-POD.
Nowdays... A brand new Winchester M 94 made in the S.C. plant (USA). No glossy stock, nice oil finished walnut and old high gloss bluing like the pre-64's. 30-30 is fine with the Hornady's aboard. Hurry up already, there is a market!
I would love to have a Remington 11-87 parkerized with a 28" vented rib Remchoke barrel, and cantalever slug barrel. I already have my favorite, it is a winchester 94 pre 64 in mint condition.
My dream gun is a Vietnam era 7.62 Sniper rifle. My dad had one that he modified to fit me when I was a kid. Unfortunately, he died a few years ago and his brother was informed before his own kids. In fact we had to hunt him down because the brother never told us. I therefore cannot find another rifle in the same condition or with the Hammer and sickle on the barrel.
My other dream gun would be an over under shotgun. 20 gauge.
I have always though that the Winchester model 42 was just the bee's knees as a nice small-bore shotgun for small game and fun shooting. They have always been expensive for as long as I have been around, and it's hard to justify the cost when there are other alternatives and other types of guns to spend money on, but if money were no object I would want one for sure.
What I wouldn't give for an original .44 Auto-Mag. Shot one at the Range years ago and have wanted one ever since. But, even at the gun shows...when you do find one, it's way too pricey. Settled for a new Ruger Charger in .22 All I can say is: SWEET!!
A pre-64 Winchester model 88 in .284 Win. with a tuned trigger. They were only made for one year in pre-64 (1963) and had hand cut checkering but, the ones I have found go for over $2000.00. It's clip fed so you get excellent range using pointed bullets and has camming action bolt lugs so I can reload hotter rounds. I'm a lefty and lever rifles work great for me.
T/C Icon with stainless or Weather Guard barrel and action, synthetic stock, but in a light weight, short barrel version. Similar to the Ruger Compact. Also, offer a larger selection caliber choices.
Pre-64 Winchester 88 .284 Win.. Tuned.
For upland hunting a Fox side by side in 16 gauge, single selectable trigger, 26 inch barrels w/ choke tubes, beaver tail forend & a nice recoil pad.
Browning Citori in any gauge & a pre 64 model 70 in .270.
A Crazy Horse M-14SE with the Troy Industries on M14 Modular Chassis System.
hunter2057 made me think and now i am leaning towards a Icon in a varmint caliber
A Sharps Long range target/hunting rifle, in 45-120 caliber. Or a Springfield M1A, in 7.62-54 caliber. They both make me drool.
I love to have a Westley Richards side by side dble rifle in 30-06 made to fit my small frame. EAA made a dble rifle for many yrs, but ws bought out by Remington.Rem uped teh price three fold and it never got off the chopping block. It was a gun I could afford, but fiffled around and never ordered one by EAA. Fatal mistake.I'm trying to find one if Rem. did mfg any.Many good firearms have bitten the dust in take overs or buy outs. Learned that if you find a gun you want and can borrow, steal the $ better buy it when it available. Love my Remingons 700's in 25-06 and 30-06 CDl's but would love a dble rifle.Shoot-um-straight and often.
Ruger #1 with a 20" barrel and proper twist rate to stablize the caliber of my choice - .45/70
cody ballard , looks like a 1885 winchester in 45/70. hunter vershion
Weatherby sub-moa ss 257 weatherby magnum, bushnell elite 4-16x50 elite 6500 scope. BARRET 50 cal
the legendary SHARPS in 45-120 32 inch barrel 18 lbs.accurate out to 1000 yds
I've always wanted to own and hunt with a vintage ( 60's - 70's) Savage model 99 chambered for .300 Sav. The sleek design combined with the flat shooting round just epitomizes deer rifle to me.
I was considering building an AR in 5.56NATO for varmit and tactical use before there prices started spiraling skyward. Now, I wish I had scraped up the money for it. I would really like an AR in 7.62NATO, but they aren't common enough for me to afford anytime real soon. I basically have the Rifle I have wanted the longest though a Rem700. Mine is in .30-'06 which isn't my preferred round for anything really, but it is top shelf for an all around New Mexico big game gun. Between that and the .243win Rem788 I have I can take any big game in my state(NM) so I can't really reason out spending money on anything else right now.
Oh, man! I almost forgot. I have always like lever guns too. I could definitely see a quality tube fed .30-30 lever action and a .22 lever action take down model like Marlin makes. Man I have wanted a .22 lever gun since I can remember.
I had a Stevens Model 94-C 20 ga that was the first gun my dad bought for me as a kid, and would love to find one again.
How about a Holland & Holland Royal Ejector .500/.465
Got no idea what I'd do with it but it would be nice to have.
Hmm, now i am wanting a Henry Golden Boy in 30-30 or 22 lever action, and fun!
I would say either a Smith & Wesson Model 1911 Semi-Automatic pistol or a Vector Arms V-53/HK93 .223 Rifle, which is just like an MP5
Sure would like that 1911 22 conversion in Outdoor Life but have no use.
Browning Cirori, double 12ga.
KMB33. Some of the best rifles I have ever owned would be determined to be "Cheap" though I would just call them "in-expensive". In fact I have found that the best weapons I have ever owned or fired have just been hard to find and not expensive.
So just try some of the lower cost rifles before you degrade them.
the 1 millionth 12 guage browning citori or john wayne tribute lever action rifle
Remington R-25 in .308 Win
benelli SBE 2 .
Nosler Custom Model 48 in a .270
the benelli super black eagle 2.
An automatic machine gun!!!!!!!!!!!
a 8 guage shotgun or a 50 cal.
Thompson Center G1 Contender in 10mm Magnum
Mossberg 900 semi-auto 12 gauge
Ruger #1 in either 204 ruger or 375 ruger
Custom Springfield 03 in 35 Whelen. I'm still saving for that one.
The 30mm GAU-8 Avenger from the A-10 Warthog
An M-14 such as the M39 EMR would also be nice
Weatherby mark v ultramark
Double-barrel, Sears and Roebuck shotgun, preferably a 16 gauge.
