1) Ruger 10/22
2) S&W 1500 30-06
3) Marlin 1895 45-70

That covers pretty much all critter small to large 4 legged and even 2 leggers.

Remington 22 LR

03A3 (sporterized and scoped) in 30-06 (Remington)

Remington 700 custom 358 Winchester

Those are my favorite rifles
add to that my favorite hand guns and shotguns and I can kill anything that walks or flies in the American continents.

I'd hate to have to give up any rifle I have....but if I was restricted to only three then they would be:

1. .22 rimfire bunny gun and pretty much any thin skinned game out to 100m

2. My Winchester Model 94 in 30.30 heavier game out to 100m - 150m

3. My Weatherby .243 Win bolt gun will deal with 99% of game in Australia out to at least 200m +

I should include my 12g shotgun in there as it is a very versatile gun, from light shot (#9) right up and including slugs.

Cheers, Vince

Heh- I've used that term to desbribe them straight-stocked units and I get looks back like..."huh?" wtf

Not a fan of Monte Carlo stocked lever actions for some reason. They look too "sporterized'ish" to me.

That ol' girl of yours sure is a looker, Mr. Bush. I'm sure you two have some stories.... Cool

Can't be done with only three. However, my first three would be:

M1 Garand .30-06
FN Mauser in .280 Remington
Remington Model 581 .22 l.r.
All the best...

Shooting is kinda like golf. You can't play the whole game effectively with just one club. With just a wood, an iron and a putter it becomes a little easier but still isn't much fun.

That would be my exact answer - 10 years ago, when they are allowed here..
