    Very cool list! I reckon I forgot all about the 1911 since I gave mine to my son-in-law years ago after he returned rom Iraq. I always loved the way it disassembled without using any tools!
    My dad, a Marine from WWII was not a fan of the 30 caliber carbine however. He discarded it and took hold of a M1 Garand as soon as he could after landing in Okinawa.

    Wow, your father was on Okinawa? He must have been one tough Marine.

    Terminal ballistics aside, the carbine is a fun gun to shoot. And it was a more effective weapon than the .45, which it was originally meant to replace.

    Tough to choose just five and my preference changes with whatever I'm holding at the moment.
    Browning pre 81 BLR .308 - good gun for whitetails around here
    M1 Garand

    Sig P220 .45 ACP

    Honorable mention: Browning Euro-Bolt .270 - my other whitetail gun

    It's interesting how we all have very different favorites but as expected all have at least one Browning as a top preference!
    I reckon that's why we are here!

    That’s my favorite, all hell I have that many 16 gauges. Then there’s the 20’s and 12’s . Yea I know I’m really sick. Always looking for another
    I also have an LC Smith that’s pretty close, it was my great grandfather’s, so it holds a special place in my heart and brings back lots of memories. That’s a double though so I have a couple favorites. Then there’s the 525, and the gold hunters. I have a very nice slug gun that’s a gold hunter. That thing is wicked at 200 yards. Just to many but the a5 is the all time favorite
