If you had to buy new guns, yours vanished into thin air, for example, what would they be? You don't have an unlimited budget, so buy what you would be able to afford. Need a rifle, two pistols, a shotgun, and optional, a long range gun. Shooter Ready? Fire!

This is an easy one. Since you didn't specify if they are to be cowboy guns
or just all around guns in general I'll
list both.
Cowboy Guns:

Marlin 1894/.44 mag.

Ruger Vaqueros/Stainless/.44mag & .44-
40 dual caliber/4 5/8"

Rossie 12 gauge double/20"

Browning BPCR .45-70

General purpose guns:

Ruger Mini 14/stainless

S&W 629/.44 mag., 6"
S&W 617, 8"

Mossberg model 500 12 gauge, 30" full
choke & 28" modified barrels

Remington model 700, 7mm mag.

I'm anxiuos to which ones others are
going to list. (I may change my mind).

If the budget was a problem I would have to get 2 Vaq in 45 Colt and a Trapper in the same.( I find the Rossi rifle a bit short in my hands.) A 12ga. Stoger coach. BUT.. I'd never be the same after losing my original set of Cowboy guns!!
