Rifles are my fave.

Usually - on limited budget - I get a lesser name rifle such as a used Savage rather than, say, a Weatherby.

That's because the stock will never look the same again, so I hate to pay for a lovely stock that is soon to take a lickin.

I free float my barrels. And I make grooves and depressions for all my fingers and joints, starting with a wood rasp and then all the way to sandpaper.

There is no fancy woodwork equipment here, so it's all hand tools. They still look nice. In my graduating year of high school, I took a first place design trophy for woodworking when all the schools in the are displayed projects at the big mall near hear. So big tools or little tools - my stuff looks good and works good.

My favorite calibers are the 7mm mag. and .300 mag.

Anyone have any experience with the .338 Win. mag. (think I got that right)??

Something reliable, pretty accurate and ideally 5.56mm. I gotta carry this stuff...

The good old SLR L1A1 7.62mm with 20 round magazine. Not technically legal in Australia, but god I'd love one. Now I've just got to convince the police firearms branch that I'm a primary producer and I can buy one

I wish I had the 12.7 mm NSV at my home. It was an orgasm to fire.

But rifles are nice. Sako Valmet RK62 is actually quite nice to shoot and accurate too.

At the moment my thing is rifles. I have a Savage 10FP chambered in .308 Win (glass is a SS10x42), supposedly a .25 moa rifle, but I haven't shot that well yet. It's a pretty cheap setup (<$1000) but it'll hang with the big boys.

Topic: I'll chime in on this one.

Most definitely a handgun, probably Sig or H&K. I really don't like Glocks.
And it has to be 45 caliber!

I also had the oppertunity to do some shooting at a range with some of the guys from S.W.A.T. in Philly when I lived up there and I really, really took a liking to MP5's at that time.

I have always wanted to have some fun with an F&N 5.7

I voted for the rifle.

Although I dearly love my M1911A1 like SFC does, I prefer the ability of taking the enemy out long before he gets that close he he. I've fired many rifles over the years and Redneck's .30 - .30 sounds nice. I've fired all the US military issued rifles from the Springfield to the M16A2 but I got the best results from the M14.

As to machineguns, well I can't quite put them in the same catagory as the rest. The ability to lay down hundreds of rounds non-stop is incomparible in my view. Still, when I competed on the machine gun team in matches I did learn how to fire an M60 single shot. No mean feet.
