    Toby, are you sure that's all?? What??? no "black" rifles? No 1911(s)
    Just kidding, that is a bunch. Good thing you aren't married. If my wife saw my list, she'd probably kill me.

    Actually there are a few 1911s on the list under the 45 ACP section. No ARs though. I have nothing against them, just not my cup of tea.

    If I still owned them all, you might have a point! Fortunately, or maybe unfortunately, I only still own a fraction of them now. Lol!

    That is a quality list. And it brings up a few questions as I thought through the list:
    Best rifle for deer? Elk?
    Best for African PG? DG?

    Would you advise to avoid any of them?
    Rifles you would buy first if you had to start over?

    My list is much shorter, less than 2 dozen. But it seems to be growing.

    Sorry, the list is so extensive that I missed them. How about an old Win. Mod 71 (348 Win.)?

    No Model 71, but there are two model 86 45/70s on the list. Very close to the same rifle, if not the same caliber.

    Most guns that I've owned and gotten rid of over the years were sold simply to buy something else. I've never worn any of them out, that's for sure. I've thought many times about a bare bones list of guns that I could get by with, and hunt anything on earth, and use as self defense. I think that list would look something like this.
    458 Lott Heavy Game
    375 H&H Heavy Game/Large PG
    30/06 Deer/Elk/PG
    223 Rem Varmints
    22 LR rifle Small Game
    22 LR Pistol Small Game/Self Defense
    9mm Pistol Self Defense
    12 Ga Shotgun Turkey/Duck/Dove/Self Defense.

    I'd hate to have to limit my guns that much, but you could cover pretty much anything with that list.

    I'd have to tweak your limited list a bit, but it certainly would do in a pinch!!

    Wow, that’s a heck of list! You are either:
    A) Very indecisive
    B) Unable to commit
    C) Have way too much time and money on your hands
    or
    D) The man I aspire to be when I grow up! :ROFLMAO:

    I really only see one .404 size hole in your list ;)

    Only one Zastava, and I don't think you even fired it?

    On a more serious note (if anything in this thread can be considered such), what does the "= 139" stand for alongside your 7X57mm rifles? Does it mean you only used ammunition loaded with 139 grain projectiles in that caliber?

    My list would be much shorter, and contain more milsurps, especially European but with a M1 Garand thrown in the mix, that I picked up during the 1980's & early 1990's - never used for hunting, by me anyway. I could never be considered a serious collecter though. I defined myself as an accumulator decades ago and that's still true.

    IdaRam the obvious answer is "D." Dittos on the missing 404 sized hole.

    The 139 was just the talley at that point in the list, so I didn't lose count.
    I had a Zastava 9.3x62, a Remington 798 458 WM, and OH YEAH! I FORGOT! An Interarms MK X 30/06. Need to add to the list!

    Good decision you sold the scrapyard.....;)

    ....but the Ruger No.1 in 7x57, the Winchester 95 in .405 Winchester, the Savage 99 in .358 Winchester and the Merkel double in .470 Nitro.

    :)
