    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 have a 'Black Rifle' and a Henry 'Golden Boy.' Best of both worlds.

    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'm a big fan of lever action rifles. I currently own two winchester model 1894 and a model 71 (.348).

    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.

    My father inlaw has a ruger #1 I absolutly love the action on that gun and the fact that it has a longer barrel then alot of guns but due to the feed the gun itself is actually shorter

    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.
