I love all my rifles but......if I had to chose only one.....my Win 94 in 30-30. It was my first centerfire. And my Dad bought it for me as my wages for an entire summer of hard labor (I was 12 yrs old). Lots of memories and sentiment in that gun. It probably cost me more labor than any other gun I own and taught me the value hard work. I haven't shot it since dad passed away, maybe it will come along next time out.
