Mine would be my Remeington 30-06 7400 auto. I shoot left handed and could not find a left handed bolt action at the time I up graded to bigger rifle. The auto does just fine with many animals to it's credit. I also like my trusty modle 94 30-30. Taken a few deer with that gun too. Next would be my modle 99 250-3000 savage that my grandfather gave me. Great gun and a lot of "old timers" I know would love to buy it from me but, NO WAY!!

For me it's my model 70 in .338 win mag that I've hunted with since 1985. I shot the first barrel out, and re-barrelled with a Lilja stainless fluted barrell. I've shot a lot of game with it, from Brown Bear all the way down to klipspringer.

i know this is gonna sound dumb but i have mosin nagant 91/30 open sights etc.. but i love that thing since ive got it ive shot a 3 coyotes and ive nailed 3 coyotes on dead runs all over 200 yards and one out to 300 ish i feel like i cant miss with that gun! idk what it is with that gun but i just trust it.

seems weird but all the cheapest guns i own seem to be my favorites. maybe its because i use them more and keep the better ones in hiding. but my other fav rifle is my savage 223 love it!

I love my Remington Model 700 SS BDL 300 Short Action Ultra Magnum w/ Leopold VXIII CDS scope. I went out last week and hit pie plates at 575 yds. Best shooting rifle I have. Problem is, ammo is hard to find and I don't re-load. ](*,)

For years it was an old beat up Remington 700 ADL 25-06 with a 4x12 Leupold. I could hit like magic with that rifle. Someone offered me more money than it was worth and I had to part with it. Wish I had it now. These days I use a Custom .270 WBY made by Rich Riley of (High Tech Custom Rifles) here in Colorado Springs. I have only taken it on one hunt but I did knock down a 168 inch buck with it at 150 yards on the run.

Right now, a Win Model 70 270 short mag. Years ago, a Win 70 30-06.

Still have every rifle I ever purchased. They are like family. I can't give any of them up.
If you can't visualize something first, you'll never achieve it without dumb luck.

Marlin 336 in .35 Remington. Wears a period Weaver K4. Tack driver all day long.
But the really cool thing is that when I tell folks it's a .35 Rem, their faces scrunch up just like yours did when you read this. lol
