Must keep reminding myself of all that.


The TRG-42 in 338 Lapua is easier to manage than you might think. It doesn't kick too much more than the TRG 22's it's just stinking LOUD! :-D

I've got your Dakota Model 10 in 7mm Dakota. It comes WITH Brass and dies ;-) ;-)

I would trade it in on a Barrett 50 cal which is my like but prolly will never own.

I dont know if it fits the category of long gun, but:
M1895 Gatling Gun. "Remember the Maine"!
Otherwise:
M1873 Winchester Saddle Ring Carbine in .44-40.
I have ran across them before but always when I was too broke to buy it. Must be fate.

A full auto American 180. A .22 LR automatic weapon would be a hoot.

Now I sense a Class III "Which Class III Gun would You Probably Like But Never Own??" thread

I want a .416 or .458 safari rifle, high polish blue, Mauser action and French walnut. No reason. Just want one. Ya know, in case I need to stop a charging Buick.

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Since he specified rifle, carbine, or shotgun, I'm going to leave off the full auto stuff.

With regards to more common rifles, I'd say a Gewehr 43. Cool piece of history, but prices are ridiculous now. ($2,500+)



For less common rifles, I'd say a Johnson M1941, or the experimental Johnson Type R carbine.

AR-15 RDIAS, Sturmgewehr 44 (or variant thereof), FN FNC (Full Auto of course), legit Swiss SIG 55X series, HK MP5 (FA).

Came close on getting the SIG, but passed before the priced when way up on those that came with the faux suppressor.

I could get an MP5 clone but it'd just be a toy, so not worth it.

I've always lusted for an FNC since I was a kid.

Same. Has that "1970s/1980s Cold War utilitarian" vibe.

In the actually doable, but won't happen range, a semi auto BAR would be nice. I want to take one hunting for some reason.

In the "since we're spending your money, not mine" column, a nice Austrian or English double rifle please.

SCAR Heavy.

Super cool, super fun, three colorways of FDE Wink, but just outside my budget for a semi-auto .308

When you can get good-to-excellent AR10s, HK/PTR-91s, and Galils in that 1500~ range, I just can't see spending double to have the SCAR.

I was gonna say that it'd be like bowhunting with a rifle (follow-through while the bolt runs forward being like follow-through while an arrow clears the bow), but then I realized - semiauto would have to fire from a closed bolt rather than an open bolt in order to pass legal muster, right?

Currently, yep.


If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink

I would like one of the commemorative Quigley Down Under sharpes rifles. Absolutely no use for one, but would still enjoy it.

A really high end side by side double shotgun, like and Ideal grade LC Smith. I love old doubles, but don't have the money to play on that field.

I'll agree 100% with RougeJSK...that Johnson M1941 would be the berries Cool
