Coolest Gun In Your Collection?

This is mine:



OK, not literally, this is from Biggerhammer, but mine looks just like it. This is my only "keep it forever and will it to one of the kids" guns. Why? I guess because it's rare, pretty expensive, and so well engineered that it's almost elegant. It's the softest recoiling .308 I've ever shot.

If I had really deep pockets I would also have a SIG 551.

Including NFA items, what's the best in your collection?

My favorite is a pre-war (Civil, that is) percussion sporting long gun, with double triggers, German Silver fittings, and octagonal barrel. It was made in Timothy Vogler's shop in Salem NC, and they've recently restored the shop as a working enterprise, as part of the historical park there.

It's difficult to show great detail, but:

I have an old Drilling that my dad got somewhere. It is all engraved and very
cool looking. I think it was made in the late 1800's

Thanks. I love firing black powder. Haven't tried this one; I'm afraid to risk it, but with a small charge and just wadding, maybe.

Ruger 10/22 with flash hider and scope.

It's like shooting a strong pellet gun without the pumping.

I've always wanted one and finally got one.

Thanks GSDude.

the SIG AMT is very cool!

my coolest are also Swiss, a Hämmerli 505 rifle, single shot bolt action.22 with the 4oz. "jeezus" trigger and a 2-digit serial number, and a Hämmerli 208s, .22 pistol.

Probably my Springfield Garand which was made in 1944. It's not a collectors piece by any stretch but was built up for John C. Garand matches and is my favorite rifle to shoot. It just feels right.

I don't own any guns, but I'm thinking about getting a semi-automatic rifle.
