Well the AR15 nomination should be obvious being as how this is AR15.com and that is what most people own. If so state your favorite specific model and why. I tend to avoid "What is the best gun?" topics. It's like asking what do you like better, the hammer or the screwdriver?" I have different favorites for different reasons. But of all I'd say my most enjoyable firearm is the HK G3(HK 91). It is about the same weight as my AR15A2 HBAR and fires a more powerful round. Also has no gas system to fail. Is easier to strip in the field, but not by much. I believe the sights are faster and the peep drum setting more accurate. It is readily convertable to full auto with registered packs and non registered packs can be fitted without too much work in a post apocalyptic situation where stupid federal firearm laws would no longer be the primary concern. Obviously recoil is greater than a .223 but I still find this rifle a joy to shoot. I only wish they weren't so damn valuable so I could dedicate one a SHTF rifle for grunt work.

My late fathers carry pistol. He toted that old Smith and Wesson for 25 years as a Louisiana State Trooper. It still shoots good and the trigger is typical silky smooth S&W..357 magnum.

My beloved '91 West German SIG P226 in 9mm. It feels like an extension of my arm and its operation is smooth as a baby's arse. [url]http://www.sargenthome.com/images/sig_p226.jpg[/url]

I, too, love the HK91, but for my "favorite" I'd have to say my Colt R6500 AR-15 A2, Sporter II rifle. Very, verrry close runner-up would be it's little brother.....the R6520 SPII carbine.

I would say my FAL is my favorite rifle. My balls get sweaty just holding it.

Besides the ArmaLite (natch), at the moment, my current fave to shoot is: [img]http://www.davide-pedersoli.com/img/previews/s260.jpg[/img] British Army "Brown Bess" flintlock smoothbore musket- the AK47 of the 18th century...[:D] (Edited to add: .75 cal., 42" barrel...3 to 5 rounds a minute. 12" groups at 50-75 yds with unpatched ball or in paper cartridges, just as they did it back then. No click, swoosh-boom when I pull the trigger, but a fast-firing, immediate BANG! Flinters are fun!)

Two American Classics [:)] [img]http://members.aol.com/mrkp672/images/1903&car.jpg[/img] Just wish there was a reasonable rifle range to shoot them at around here.

I have three distinctly different "favorites." My first is my Fulton ARmory built custom AR. It's by far the most accurate rifle I own, and it functions flawlessly. And it looks BADASS to boot. My second is my Kimber Classic Stainless 1911. Another flawless performer, and hell-for-accurate. And it has the best trigger of any box-stock gun I've ever shot. So far the only modification I've made to it is Hogue exotic wood finger-groove grips, but it will (sooner or later) get three-dot sights - tritium, if I can swing it. My third is my Remington XP-100, with a Fajen laminated thumbhole stock, chambered in 7mm Benchrest Remington. I love knocking down steel rams with this thing at 200 meters. It looks like something from [i]Star Wars[/i].

I LOVE my ARs. But my favorite firearm and my "grab it when the SHTF firearm" is my ugly ass MAK-90, although, I just got an email from Matt at IWD, and my ugly ass Mak may not be ugly for much longer. [bounce]

My favs my Springfield M1A in a GI fiberglass stock. I love the ability to top of a mag while its seated in the rifle, its a tack driver, spare parts are realitivly easy to find. Mags are a little pricy but they're built like a tiger tank.

Hi Power. Point, shoot, hit, repeat, always. But the USP40 compact is growing on me.
Link Posted: 12/9/2002 7:38:00 PM EDT
USP40c........used to be my USP40f, but for some damn reason I sold it long ago.......what a mistake. I sold it for more than I paid and had shot 2,000 rounds so it was a good deal for me...but would like to have it back. Ed

Blaser R93 in .300 Weatherby/.223. Fast, accurate repeat shots with hole in hole ability at 300 yards. Extremely light, and it can be broken down to fit in almost anything. Also the ability to fire diferent calibers is wonderful. Return to zero is nice too.

I had a CUR-2 (earlier Romanian AK-74 clone) that I had put new furniture, trigger group, and brake on. I loved it and it shot nice groups (relatively speaking) for the first 1-2 thousand rounds. Then its accuracy got intolerably bad and I sold it.

I have a few favorites. Winchester Model 70, pre-64 type action, in .308. (Would happily try other calibers, too!) Browning Auto 5 Light 12 shotgun, for skeet. (And for bird hunting, if I did that...) My AR, of course! My Colt M1911. An authentic registered, transferrable Colt 9mm SMG. Any phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range. CJ

Has to be my first "black rifle" Sweetest out of the box shooter I've ever owned. Heavy as all hell for a .223 yet I've always felt it fits me more naturally than an AR ever will. [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=1105[/img]

For me, the most fun to shoot is my little MP5 [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=1273[/img] Fun as hell to shoot, if it wasn't so pricey it would be my carry gun! Highly controlable in FA once I learned the correct stance.

My 1885 Win Highwall repro by Uberti in .45-70, my Ruger #1 in .260 Rem., my AR-10 and AR-15's, and my 700 PSS in .308. At least one of these goes to the range on every trip.

As much as I love my AR10’s and AR15’s and as fun as class III is to shoot the last firearm I would ever sell would be my old Winchester 190. It was my first real gun and I have put more rounds through it than any other I own and it gives me the warm fizzies just holding it. Ah the memories it brings back. The most fun to shoot would have to be the HK MP5 though. THISISME

My first instinct was to post "Whatever I buy next!", but as far as what I can wrap my grubby fingers around right now, it would have to be my beloved "Frankenpistol" - my first gun purchase. It's incredibly accurate and reliable. I keep it in a Milt-Sparks VersaMax2 IWB holster when I'm out 'n about. [img]http://home.attbi.com/~gopackgo/FrankenTripp[/img]

My '93 W. German Sig Sauer P228. Feels like it was custom made for my hand and points very naturally.
