A month ago after taking a tactical pistol course, as i was leaving, the instructor talked about an up coming tactical rifle course. I asked if i could bring my Marlin 1894. They weren't sure how to single point sling it though (no saddle ring either)

The rifle I really want right now is a falling block sharps in .45-70. I would consider going to .45-90, though.
break open single shot. really like my 2 encores and 2 contenders,1 of each set up for rifle and 1 of each set up for handgun shooting.like these ones best, allthough i still like to play with my semi-autos,pumps,and bolt actions.
I am not familiar with Class-3 rules but we DO have a unrestricted range where I live and I have NEVER seen a Civie with a 3RB...Although I have to say that shooting 3rb is the most fun ever! Aim low and left, squeeze! I don't know if thats because they all like autos, or 3-rb is illegal. I think that even with a class-3 it has to be pre-19?? and there were no 3rb's back then?
At least for hunting, fully automatic is defined as any firearm that can discharge more than a single shot for a single pull of the trigger. So in hunting, a 3-round burst is considered automatic. Not sure what the BATF has to say about it though.
I like your poll; great idea!!!
But it is not complete.
You left out at least the following:
All of the Firelock class including...
Some of the cartridge class including...
Oh, and "pump" action is a synonym for / subset of "slide" action.
I have a few different rifles that fit into many of the poll categories. an SKS that uses AK mags an AK, AR, 30 carbine, a couple 10-22's, 17 hmr bolt action, a couple single shot shot guns and a couple pump actions. To me you just can't go wrong with any of them. I don't have most for any other reason other than wanting to shoot them because it's fun. I don't hunt much anymore because of the trashed back but I still love to shoot them.

There is a nice puma '92 short rifle version here at my LGS. full octagon barrel, no barrell band. i keep talking myself out of it. funds not (really) available.
but i really want it. go well with my SS New Blackhawk.
Got a Bolt Action, Lever action, Single Breech, and a Chipmunk which could fit in Single or Bolt.
Colt A/R 15 'Black Rifle"
Winchester pre '66 30/30 Lever-action
Uberti 1866 Yellowboy lever-action rifle .45 Long Colt
Remington Nylon 66 .22 L/R
Weatherby Pre '70 Left Hand 7MM Mag
others & shotguns
I really like them all, but enjoy my Lever Actions most - I guess I'm kind of a cowboy at heart.
my favorites are scope sighted bolt actions , but also have several levers a semi-auto and one break open Encore , suppse i like em all
I have a ruger 22.LR semi auto
a MAK(AK-47) semi auto
Im gonna get a .308 bolt action rifle(not sure which brand),never had a bolt action and i want one.
I have a few 22 semi-autos and a sweet Browning B 92 lever in 44 mag. Love it.
Top is Weatherby XIX, Browning,bottom Marlin Stainless Model 6088.
Would like a bolt or two, and a M14.I think 7.62 is the only way to fly.
I voted bolt, because my favorite rifle is a Model 70 Winchester, in .30-06, but it really just depends on how I intend to use the rifle. I believe that a good bolt action is more consistently accurate than most other types.
I like a semi-auto in .22 (36 year old Remington Speedmaster), and I'm fond of my Model 1894 Marlin in .44 magnum.
My Cowboy Assault Rifle (winchester '94) and my Enfield .303 are 2 of my favorites
Bolt action for accuracy. The first shot is the one that counts.
I have at least one of all except a full auto...unless I bump fire but technically it is still a semi auto....
We have way more rifles than pistols...that is why I am here...to learn from all of you guys who know more than I do about the handguns. You all are teaching me much already. Thanks, by the way!
