This is rough, I have had very few guns that I have disliked. I have owned and loved a Colt 1911 and Woodsman. Regret ever selling them. Also had a S$W model 19. 586 and classic hunter in 44 mag. Rifles I have used Mauser 98 (still have) S&W 1500 25-06 (still have) Ruger 77 (disliked) numerous 22s, and TCA Contender with numerous barrels. I have also owned a Winchester 100 & 94 (miss both of them) as well as a ruger 3 screw blackhawk (another gun I miss). I will no longer sell any of my guns!!! Everyone has a favorite.

Did I miss the Winchester Model 94 in the slides? Probably the all time deer slayer in American Hunting History? I wonder how many 94s have been sold since its introduction? hmmm-tsk tsk

Alaska most balanced rifle is the .338 Win. Mag.;
yet a .45-70 tied to super-cub wing is nice! Most
master guides I know carry a .375 H&H with a partition bullet!

I've personally always appreciated my old trusty Marlin 336 in 35 Rem. topped with an old Bushnell 3x9. It's accounted for many bear and deer. I use Remington 200gr. core-loct ammo and have taken 2 deer out to 200 yards when I had to. For those longer pokes I use my Remington 700 Classic BDL-DM in 300win. mag topped by a Nikon Buck-master 4.5-14. There are so many great hunting rounds it comes down to what type of recoil is acceptable to the individual shooter. There isn't a magic gun it's only magic when one person makes it so and says I'm am confident and trust this weapon.

Bo, I'm trying to convince my wife that your definition of "need" is the correct one--she isn't buying my argument. LOL But on the bright side, she hasn't given me too much grief over my effort to stimulate the economy by keeping the dive shop in business.

Seadog, I envy you. I need a bunch more guns. There is a .460 S&W that I am in dire need of, as well as the new S&W micro-compact 1911. Then there is the need for a bigger rifle to take moose hunting for whenever I can go, and the gun for when I go to Alaska, and then the one for Africa. I mean, I need all of them. It would be horrible if I was selected to go on any of these hunts and I wasn't prepared just by having the right gun...;-D

A few of these are on my wish list. But I have all the guns I actually "need" and all my spare cash right now is going into keeping my boat running and maintaining my dive gear--gotta get some lobster in the freezer before hunting season.

Bo, I see that fine firearms get your blood pumping faster like it does for me. I would love to have one of the Fox shotguns... but I think that will happen when pigs fly.

While the 1895 is a great rifle, but the 444 is a lot more accurate. Sub 1" 5 shot groups at 100yds are normal. The other thing is, no M1911?

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! Seems like readers on this site have pretty good taste in guns. The Winchester and Remington rifles were mentioned in OL's 50 Best Guns Ever Made list, so that's why they didn't show up here (this is basically a list of everything we left out the first time). To see the original list of 50 check out slide number 23 for the link.

I like huntingfreak was a little suprised that the win mdl 70, rem 700 nor the mossberg guns were not on the list.

I cannot believe that the winchester model 70 or the remington model 700 is not here. As far as the desert eagle is concerned I owned a brand new one and could not go through a clip without it jamming up, what a piece of crap, traded it for a mossberg pump shotgun, and thats another thing where is the mossberg.
