    -My number 1 by far ,is my 6.5-06 with a Winchester M70 post 64 action, Shilen Select Match stainless steel barrel, Bell & Carlson synthetic stock topped with a Zeiss Victory 6-24x56.

    -My number 2 is my Tikka M65 in 6.5x55. A second hand weapon I bought dirt cheap from a gun shop and it is a tack driver and a great joy to shoot. Most likely it will be the gun my kids shoot their first deer with.

    -My number 3 is my Ruger Alaskan in 375 Ruger.

    I love my Lapua, it was a bit much with the factory hockey puck but with a Pachmyer decelerator it is much tamer.

    It was cursed for years, many years, if I carried it I saw no shooters. In fact one year I could not even find a cow elk until the day I grabbed the wrong gun at 4am and ended up killing my elk with my .257.

    I broke that curse in Africa on day 1 with a beautiful Zebra and followed up with a Roland Ward Black Wildebeest, BWB, Eland, Kudu, Red Hartebeest and a Whitetail here at home. Elk and Moose still elude it but I plan to break that jinx on Thursday.

    At any given moment I don't have any guns that aren't favorites. And then for some reason I do, which usually is a result of me deciding there's a new favorite I need.

    But seriously, I can't decide on any of mine at this moment that wouldn't be listed as a favorite. This even includes my son's .308. If they shoot well, they're favorites. If they don't, they go down the road.

    NO WAY I could only choose three. I have too many guns with sentimental value - mine, dad's, both grandfather's, etc....

    That being said, I'll try and be practical:

    Ruger 10/22
    Browning B-80 12 gauge
    CZ 550 .375 H&H

    If I could only have 3, I would cry and throw a tantrum like a little girl, but....
    My beloved old Superposed that my Uncle gave me back in 1963 would be first. We've hunted together now for fifty years.
    The second would be my BLR 22 that my wife gave me for Christmas the first year we were married. We were broke and could hardly pay the rent, but she used our grocery money to get that little rifle for me.
    Number three would be my leopard gun, my O/U 16/8x57R. Her first owner was a German farmer in Africa and she was his only gun. Forty leopards are among the myriad of game she's taken. His nephew sold her to me and I say thank you every time I take her afield. She talks to me.
    The rest I would hide from the authorities!
