Post a picture and description of your favorite rifle. The history of the gun, how much or what type fo game you have taken with it, best loads, competitions it has won, etc.
This should be very interesting to all the shooters here.

This is my hunting rifle. More deer, elk, turkey, coyotes, etc have fallen to this rifle than I can recount. Two shots this year and both were 1 shot kills. 30/06 Rem 700 LH, with Krieger barrel, action trued, lightened firing pin, fiberglass/alum bedding block rifle stock, neoprene sling, 4x12 Leupold with mildot, crisp 2.75 lb trigger. Best load is 55.5 gr of 4350 IMR, 165 SPBT Hornady Interlock, Federal brass and Federal Magnum primer. It has been through 3 stocks, 3 scopes, two barrels, and numeorus other modifications and will never again be changed in my lifetime. Even my son is awed by this rifle. It is a wonderful firearm and I am very proud of it!
Here it is:

Here's mine..
GA Precision USMC spec M40A3 with USO MST-100 scope.
DPMS LR-308 with IOR 10x56mm scope and custom jrp trigger.
Both rifles shoot M118LR ammo only.
They're both favorites of mine, I can't say I like one more than the other. I've shot both out to 800 yards with no problems, and I've had the M40A3 out to 1k yards at Badlands. The only trade-off between the two would be the weight. The M40A3 is just so damn heavy!

I'd post a pic but this image share program keeps flashing error unable to transfer, I don't have just one favorite rifle, I got several, one for small game, several for large game and one for bragging on, and I'd post a pic of the horns offa an eight pointer one of my inlaws arrowed last week 100yrds behind my moms house, anyone have a recomendation for a digital camera thats cheap, I don't want to cut into my recreation fund to much, my sisters tired of me borrowing/breaking hers.

Yup, I like them small deer as well, they eat alot better than the old rutting bucks.
I am going back out on Saturday for another shot, since the deer I shot last Saturday was counted as a doe, I can still get a buck...

Here you go,

NEF Handi Rifle, .243 with a Leupold Rifleman 3-9x40 scope. I really like these rifles, a great buy and a good reliable rifle for the price.

BTT - I have many, many rifles that I could post pictures of. But the one I posted is probably my most valuable (to me!) firearm I have. Simply because of what I have done with the rifle.
Come on guys, let's see the pride and joy of your rifle collection!
Joe, Wingman, 1shott, those rifles are nice!

I bought these for a great price (about $700) back when I worked in law enforcement several years ago. I was lucky to get in on a deal where we got some kind of one time special pricing. It was just after tax refund time too.

They were the shiznit back when the ban was on, but now that the ban is over, I guess they aren't so special. However, I like them and they shoot really well. The only mod I've done is to replace the stock sights with a set of Trijicon front and rear sights for low light/night time shooting.

Specs on the rifle are:

Stolle Panda F-Class action (20MOA integral rail)
Krieger 30" 8.5 twist straight taper barrel
Chamber is 6.5 Grendel match chamber
SG&Y/Robertsons Composite F-Class stock
SG&Y 30mm rings
Jewell 1.5oz BR trigger
Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25x50 M1 scope

She really shoots, last time I was shooting at 300 yards, groups were all in the .35"-.45" range. I would highly recommend Speedy for any custom rifle build!!

My favorite is my new Savage MK II-FV .22
I just got it so I have not had the opportunity to take any "game" with it but the sight in session was fun.

Here's my favorite black rifle and favorite milsurp

The BR is a Rock River Arms midlength, YHM flipup front and rear sights, tango down grip, IOR 3X25 CQB, Larue mount I hacked the rail extension off of, and a single point attachment for my ASP sling I never use. The reason I put the BUIS in front of the scope is the eye relief is fairly short and I prefer the stock fully extended so I just sat the IOR as far back as possible. I haven't actually shot it with the Larue mount yet.

The Milsurp is a Finnish M39 Mosin Nagant with a Belgian B barrel. It's very accurate for a Mosin.
