Nice! You are ready for just about anything buddy! Lol. If only you had one of those Colt Double Eagles or whatever their DA auto was!
I don't reach near the lists of others here, but I've owned a few...
Savage 110 .243 - still have this one
Savage 110 .270
Savage 110 .30-06
Marlin 336 .30-30
Steyr Pro Hunter .270 - my current go to rifle
I'm looking to expand in the short-term. Definitely a .223 bolt action and probably a .300 WM to take with me to Africa.
I am sorry to hear that. I hope things work out for you.I have 53 in my private armory. A healthy balance between long guns and handguns. Too many to list here but I am professionally employed as a Fraud Investigator and former law enforcement. I see no down side in listing your firearms in a semi-open forum. The feds know what you have and if there are any thieves here trolling they are going to be met with heavy resistance at my place and I sm sure at your place as well. Most of mine consist of big bore handguns and rifles. I was recently diagnosed with esophageal cancer so I am currently fighting for my life with a less than 50% chance to survive the upcoming major surgery which carries life long side effects which will undoubtedly keep me from firing any of my firearms. So I am in a state of shock because I was a competitive powerlifter and bodybuilder, who did not drink alcohol, smoke or have Gerd or acid reflux. I had the energy levels of a teenager and the body of a 30 year old. The doctors said I was unlucky.
After 5 intensive chemotherapy and radiation sessions, I have lost more than 30 pounds of my precious muscle that took me 43 years to build. I am 56 years old. I now feel like I have the energy level and body of an 80+ year old man.
Enjoy the journey and your growing collection of firearms . Over the next couple of days I will take the time to list my inventory out for you.
I started out my career with an m-14 that had a selector, progressed through an M1 and a BAR and then the notorious M16. then onto an M60, a 3.5" rocket launcher and an M79 thumper. For a while there was an M109SP 155mm and an M2 50 cal. I no longer have any of them, all I get is a "thank you for your service". I'd give all those thank yous for any one of the above.
The best insurance is a 1,000 pound safe like you have. My safe is fire proof as well. Insurance companies simply can't be depended on; by the time you get through deductibles and limits of coverage you end up getting 10 cents on the dollar. The best investment is a good heavy fireproof safe. It took four people to get mine from the truck to my reloading room. Now that it's full of firearms and ammo, nobody is going to be able to move it.
