My 50 Favorite Guns: Your #1 is???

My top 50 favorite guns.

This list is in no particular order except for #1. It’s not based on quality, accuracy, price, nothing at all. Just my 50 favorite guns as they came off the top of my head. 95% I have fired at least, some just drooled over the glass at the museum. Some bring back childhood memories with my old Gramps and the stuff we shot together. Some from a history viewpoint and some modern stuff. Just my favorite 50 guns. Got one that really makes you smile? What is it??

1. Browning M2 50 cal. Heavy Machine Gun-My love for all times. My first MOS, my first firefight, my first for a lot of things was behind a “Ma Duece”. My last Iraq 50cal was made in the Champion Sparkplug factory in Saginaw MI in 1944 it was marked. Still was in service in Iraq 🙂 That old lady stood the test of time. Her name was Vanessa. She was a great girl just like her namesake.

    Oops, now I see it.

  2. Virgil says:

    What? No 1903 Springfield? For shame.

  3. Allen says:

    I see the SIG Sauer P226 did not make the list. I’m disappointed.

      Finally a comment 🙂 I was beginning to think nobody ever read this. Well Allen I never owned one. Can’t even recall firing one. I made my picks on guns that made an impression on me or fond memory somehow through out life and the 226 just didn’t do that. P220 did though. With a great story behind that one about this stripper I used to date eons ago who was a practicing witch LOL.
