    I like the Lever action the best but then again I never got into real big game hunting. Biggest game we had was deer in heavy woods.

    My picks:
    A. Semiauto-put a hi cap magazine on this baby, you're ready for the rioters and looters, after the next Tornadocalypse. Also great for bear hunting in .30-06/8mm/.308.
    1. Mini14
    2. FAL
    3. M14
    4. AK47
    5. G3/HK91
    6. CETME
    7. SKS-D or M
    8. .30 carbine
    9. GEW-44
    10. Rashid
    11. SKS
    12. FN49
    13. Johnson 1941
    14.Hakim
    15. GEW43
    15. Saiga Hunting rifle, .30-06 or .308.
    16. Garand

    B.Bolt action: my faves:
    1. Pattern 17 Enfield, .30-06.
    2. VZ24 with bottom-grooved stock, 7mm Mauser caliber.
    3. .303 #4 Lee-Enfield.
    4. That crazy Lee-Enfield that takes AK47 magazines from Canada.
    5. Lee-Enfield Jungle carbine, latest synthetic stock variant.

    C. Lever actions:
    1. Winchester 1895 carbine, bottom grooved hand guard; stripper clip
    cariant. Caliber: .30-06.
    2. Winchester 1892. .357 magnum caliber. You can use SKS stripper clips
    to help load this gun more quickly(Think speedastrips with a revolver). With .357 magnum JSP rounds, you can probably nuke any big game animal on the North American continent.
    3. Ruger .96-44. From what I hear, it's an awesome hunting/HD gun.

    Pump action:

    1. Pump action AR15 copy-like a thirty shot repeater.
    2. Pump action AK47 copy-see above.
    3. Colt Lightning repo, in a modern caliber.

    I want a fixed ghost ring sight, on all rifles, a fiber optic brightly-colored front post sight.

    I really, really want a lever action rifle, maybe in something like 357 mag. Right now my only rifle has a straight pull bolt. Love it!

    Angel, have you considered a Rossi Puma 1892? I have heard nothing but good reports on them. Also, you use SKS tripper clips as quickloaders for any .357.

    I'd really like to know your definition of "real big game hunting" where .45-70 out of a Marlin isn't enough.

    The .38/.357 case head fits on SKS clips? I wasn't aware of that. Learn something new everyday I guess.

    I love all long guns.

    But for me the bolt action is my favorite. It is a reasonable compromise between ROF and ease of brass colection. Brass tends to last longer in a bolt gun for reloading purposes. But don't get me wrong I love my AR's too.

    For grab and go HD I keep the .30-30 Winchester, 2 mosseberg 500's(one 18.5" and one 20"), my HBAR, and a RRA M4gery in the front of the safe. Hope in time of need I can decide which one in time to defend myself (j/k).

    Believe it or not the action I want is not on the list. I would like to have the 3 round burst add to my AR. Don't really care for full auto. Do you know if you need a class III for this? 357mag.

    I did vote for the lever action. I enjoy them so much. I only have the Henry22lr and a puma 44mag. Like to get one in 30 30 and 357 mag

    I have 2 bolt actions, 1 is a Stevens Model 200 in .308 Win, the other is a Tula T03-78-01 .22LR. And also, I have a CAI CETME semi-auto in 7.62x51/.308 Win. I would love to have 3 lever actions. 1 Winchester 1894 style
    .45 LC, 1 Marlin 336 .30/30, and a Marlin 1895XLR .45/70. As for a pump I would like a Winchester Lightning style .22LR.

    Voted before I read the post. I voted semi-auto, because that's what I'm familiar with, but then saw the post asking what you'd like to have and I would say lever. I haven't shot it yet, but I bought a Henry rifle Sunday at the gun show. I grew up watching westerns and always wanted a lever-action rifle. Now I gotta shoot it!

    For those long shots, there's nothing better than a bolt action(unless your a T/C fan),Enfield P17 has to be my farvorite.

    If I'm packing through the woods,I'll take a Winchester 94.(this has to be one of the lightest hunting rifles around)

    For all out shootin/plinking and having fun...It's a toss up between my AR,AK or HK91....with alot of Ruger 10/22 action in between.

    I would really like to have a pump action rifle...that would add something new to my collection.

    3 lever action - love em
    4 single shot break action. like em a real lot
    2 bolt action. they are ok but i didn't coose either
    1 semi auto (.22) lot of fun, but wouldn't miss it like the lever or single shots.
    I REALLY want a ruger #1

    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)

    I've heard great things about the Henry Big Boy's. Great looking rifle as well.

    The rifle I really want right now is a falling block sharps in .45-70. I would consider going to .45-90, though.
