As the title suggests, I'm curious to what this forum's opinion is on which guns are the most fun to shoot. I'm relatively inexperienced, shooting some semi-automatics and revolvers, but wondered if people wanted to contribute some "bucket list" guns that all should try to get their hands on. Pictures and your reasoning earn imaginary internet bonus points!

240B (because it'll make your dick move), Marlin 22 Lever Action (for fun factor), Mosin M44 (for the fireball effect)

Ma deuce
M1 garand
M1911

In that order. I've owned or fired extensively all three and they are the most memorable of any gun I've experienced.

Covered two or three out of three listed so far, but I've heard that "Two out of three ain't bad"

My votes would be

M1 Garand
1911 or Colt SAA
Something full auto, I would personally choose an AK.

This is tongue in cheek because the ones I would have cited are posted already...


16" gun on the Battleship Missouri BB-63. But you've got to pack the cordite you powder monkey!

Tried to get on the team at my reserve unit but the two armorers cut my throat! Those bastards knew I was next in line to join a MG team, but they took it upon themselves to make sure they were first on the roster...I guess I shouldn't complain though because promotions have been closed out in their MOS across the board for over a year! Gotta let em have some fun so they don't freak out an go all Nadal Hassan on us next time we're in the field.
