Seeing so many politically charged, but surprisingly civil debates on this matter(for the most part)... I do see quite a few on the pro-gun side here... so for my fellow gun geeks... what's your favorite ones? If you live in states that are restrictive, what would you own, if they weren't such babies about it? Personally, while I have plenty of pistols, I kinda dig revolvers more. Just something "classic" about them, even if they hold less rounds and are slower to reload, there is something satisfying about a solid revolver in a decent caliber... .357, .44 mag, etc... Even the .38 special, is one of my primary carry weapons due to its small size, decent power and utterly simplicity and reliability... For rifles, hard to knock an AR. Just so easy to work on, build and you can configure it for almost any application... would have to say my favs are my AR in .300 Blackout, and either the Tavor x95 or Beretta ARX100. The .300 Blackout is a 10.5 barrel, so very compact but delivers full sized AK47 ballistics, so good for defense or deer, hogs, coyote... But for the cool factor, the ARX and Tavor get the nod. Just amazing weapons, so easy to work on, and a joy to plink with... My buddy has some property and we are setting up steel gongs at 500 yards or so, and gonna have some fun with target shooting at long distances with the above rifles, and some bolt guns like .308... Would love to build up an AR15 in .224 Valkyrie... Supersonic out past 1200 yards, it is an astounding varmint and long range target round... Anyway, rather than debate laws and statistics, what are your personal favs?
