My favorite is my Model 70 Winchester chambered in 300 WM. It has Bausch and Lomb Elite 4200 and a timney trigger.

It is my favorite for a couple of reasons. My wife bought it for me as an anniversary present about 18 years ago when we lived in Georgia. It has killed a large number of white tails and feral pigs.

I have also used it for coyotes and prairie dogs.

The versatility in loads and bullet weights make it capable of hunting just about anything. It dropped a 2000+ pound buffalo.

In a nutshell, sentimental value, versatility and accuracy.

Bought my first firearm back in the late '70's. It was a Ruger Blackhawk with a 6 1/2 inch barrel. It was my home protection for mama and the kids, since she took a liking to it right after we got married.

Ever since picking up a couple of auto pistols, the Blackhawk was kind of relegated to the back of the gun safe. Then last year I brought it out of hibernation and started shooting it again. Found out how much fun it was to shoot all over again. There's something to be said about having to go about things like they did back 100 or so years ago - cock then shoot, cock then shoot, etc.

Did put some Pachmyr (sp?) grips on it since the old wooden grips were too short and there was nothing left to wrap my pinkie finger around.

Would sure like to see some pics of your 50th anniv. edition. Hint! Hint! Hint!

I didn't meet my real father until a few years back and with him I gained a large family that loves motorcycles, hunting, and cutting up as much as I do. I met them all Christmas eve 2008 I believe. My grandfather was a hillarious agitator. Acted mean as hell and loved everyone with a passion. One of a kind. He was alive for 9 months after that before losing to congestive heart failure.

Over the years he had given every one of his grandsons a old rifle that he had collected over the years. Right after met him, he gave me a old Rutger 22 pistol. Said I was special so he wanted to do something different.

Christmas 2009, we drew numbers for all the guns that he had left and I got his newest hunting rifle. A Ruger 270. Everytime I shoot a deer with this gun it is like I am hunting with him. Something i never got to do.
