Mine's a Marlin 30-30 that my grandfather had for many years. Unfortunately it's also the one that took his life. It's a constant reminder of the beauty, power, and danger of firearms.

My M1A Scout, I really don't feel there's a single task that I could foreseeable ask of it that it's not up to.

Right at this moment, my favorite rifle is my 300 AAC Black out I put together on the cheap.
My expectations were not over the top, But it has exceeded every thing I expected. I also found it to be super easy to reload for.
Its almost like a no brainer, every load I have tried shoots well. Some shoot great.
As a replacement for a M1 carbine its tops.

Probably my PTR91. She's a heavy old girl, but she gets the job done.

In fact, I cannot remember a rifle I have owned this long. I think I have enjoyed the modifications and whatnot that have occurred over the years as much as I have enjoyed shooting the rifle. She is certainly not my most valuable rifle, but I enjoy the PTR the most.

Mine is: A bolt varmit special in 22-250. Shot bench rest for years with a custom 6 MM PPC bench rest gun. The bench rest folks went away from the 22's when the 6 PPC came along but I always loved anything in 22.

I have some nice semi autos but my favorite hunting rifles are bolt actions.

My favorite rifle for deer/elk is my Remington 700 bdl 7mm rem mag with a hs precision sporter stock along with a Leupold VXIII 4.5-14x50 LR Illuminated w/30mm tube.

For varmints I reach for my Remington 700 bdl 22-250 vssf stainless fluted heavy barrel with a Leupold VXIII 6.5-24X40 EFR w/target turrets

Remington 788 in .223

It is a shooter, no doubt about it. This was taken when working on some new loads.

Easily, my Harvester M1 Garand. Shoots everything I've tried really well with no FTE or FTF. Really an awesome rifle. It;s the only inanimate object I have an emotional attachment to.

My favorite rifle? My M1 Garand, by far. It's never let me down and has even arguably saved my life before from a VERY large bobcat.
