Beautiful Mauser Scott!

My favorite today is the Trapper at the bottom of this pic. I took the boys up in the hills and burned up several hundred rounds of .45 colt, .38 spl, .22 and 20 gauge. Had a BLAST!

Sorry if you don't understand....

the concept of a favorite andy. It has nothing to do with which application is required.

A favorite is something you hold close to your heart (if you've got one). For whatever reason that affects you individually, one gun will stand out amoungst the others. It can be pure beauty, it's history, the way it feels in your hand or maybe it's accuracy. Whatever the reason, it's very personal.

For me, today, it's the Trapper. Dad used it in his CASS events. It's deadly accurate and just plain FUN to shoot.

My favorite is my first handgun.A used 41 mag ruger blackhawk.It's basically the gun I learned to shoot with.It's also the one I learned to shoot buckets with "Quigley style":D
No pics though-it's kinda ugly:cool:
BTW,I do have a favorite screwdriver too.It's a 20 year old Craftsman.
On a side note.Even though the 41 doesn't get shot often anymore it still gets cleaned whenever I return from shooting.
:beer:

Re: got a favorite screwdriver? Square?

andy said:
measuring tape? Hammer? What's the "favorite" FOR, hmm? If the need is to ccw in a pants pocket, is the rifle still the 'favorite"?

I got a favorite hammer. Craftsman 16oz millfaced claw, can bang ten penny nails with the best of em.

Scott,
The pic of the 9422 doesn't really do that stock justice, it is a real nice piece of wood. I've been trying to track down some info on it but there's not much out there on the 9422's for some reason. That's another one that belonged to my Dad, it was his squirrel gun.

I can fully understand, I have the 1911 Grandad brought home from WW1. He carried it as Sherrif in Eskridge for 9 years.

Got a favorite tool? Saw? Hammer? Drill? Depends on what you need to do. If need to groundswat a lot of small birds, with one shot, 12 ga full of #9 birdshot is best. Need to take an elk at 300 yds, shotgun aint worth a hoot. Need to fight men, bolt action aint worth a hoot, and neither is the shotgun, and if it's at more than 30 ft or there's more than one of them at more than 20 ft, you want an autorifle, not a pistol. I may carry one more than another, shoot one more than another, fondle/handle/dryfire one more than another, but there's no "favorite". Why would there be, anyway?

Hmmph, must have missed this the first time around.

Favorite overall, would have to be my Marlin 1895. Light, handy, excellent gun in the woods and is a blast to shoot.

Favoite handgun would be my 5 1/2" Super Blackhawk, .44 Magnum. It's the one I most often carry when farting around the woods. Great hiking/hunting gun.

My favorite hammer is an old Stanley, don't know what model, it's older than I am, was my father's hammer and hasn't missed a lick.

Favorite rifle is a custom .30-.338 built by Merrill. Great rifle. It sports a 2.5-10 power Swarovski scope with a 30mm tube, 26 inch number 3 taper Lilja tube, built on the old L61R Sako action. I have taken a dozen elk, a bunch of deer, and several pronghorn with that rifle.

Favorite handgun right now is a 25-2 revolver, for sentimental reasons and because I just happen to like revolvers.

Favorite square is the new series of try squares being sold by Woodworker's supply of New Mexico. Favorite drill is my Black and Decker cordless because of its versatility, although my Makita is pretty close. Favorite saw blades are Freud, favorite hammer is a good old 16 ounce Stanley claw hammer. I like tools.

Here's a pic of a chest on chest I made last winter.

Man that's some freakin good woodwork!

My favorite rifle is a Bulgarian SLR 100. It's the only one I've got.

Favorite pistol (out of my two) is the P7M8. Fits my hand the best, my ccw piece, etc.

cheers
