    What is the nicest gun you own?

    Mine is a 1894 model Winchester 30-30. lever action made in 1906.
    It was my great granddad's and it still shoots amazingly well even with mainly all original parts.
    I even use to hunt deer every ounce in a while.

    Browning Hi-Power, made in 1969 bought by me new in 1971. Finest combat pistol ever made in 9mm. Many in the SpecOps world still carry them in the dark places. As it is in NRA 100%, it is also the most valuable.

    My SIG C3 Commander length 1911 is my favorite of the others and my normal carry. But, I like all of my guns and carry most at one time or another. Except the Blackhawks, although I would if I went to the wilds.

    Just bought a 94, btw. Nothing collectible, made in '76, but I've always wanted one and it is in beautiful shape. The mostgraceful rifle ever built for my money.

    That's beautiful. A real 'saver'.. especially since it was your grandfather's.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    That would probably be my Remington 1903-A3 with a sporting stock that an ex-sniper customized and gave my dad, who then gave it to me. I don't have any pics though. I really ought to remedy that.

    I cannot decide between my three favorite, Springfield XD45, FN PS90, and Remington 700 VTR in .308.

    They are accent marks on how to say the words properly. It is more commonly seen as ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ is in all caps while μολὼν λαβ* is lower case.

    Why a bayonette on a shotgun?

    I have more than 3, but less than 11 and a few rounds for each. I take that back, the Mossberg 88 only has 20 rounds, Raging Bull 454 has none, running low on .38 Special (only 200 left), but the rest I am fully stocked.

    Oh, no soup for you...unless you have a daughter between 20-30. :P

    The nicest gun I have these days is my Kimber tactical ultra. It will shoot with the Gold cup I traded in on it.

    I wish I would have just bought the Kimber outright and kept my 70 series Colt though. Another of those hind sight situations.

    Nicest?

    That would easily be my M1 Garand replica made by Springfield Armory in 1986.

    Might be bested by the Kahr/Auto Ordnance M1 Carbine I had my local gun shop order for me. Should be here in a few days.
