For myself, depends on why that I am shooting. Sometimes my AR10 but mostly bolt actions.I have a pump action rifle in .300 Savage it is a Remington Model 76 made in 1951 that I want to try out soon.

I am requesting you to post a copy of your man card to verify your gender for taking so long to shoot that rifle.

I hope you just bought it yesterday, in which case, OK, you get a pass for now...

I like them all, although I have shot very few semi-auto centerfire rifles out side of a the Mini-30 and AK-47.

I have a weakness for single shots, though, as I've hunted with one for a 3 decades now.

Remington 700 30-06 and Ruger 10/22 as they each have their purpose.
Honorable mention to the Marlin 30/30 as I have a perpetual crush on lever action rifles of all kinds, and the 30-30 is a nice, plentiful, and relatively cheap general purpose round.
If shotgun, I like the idea of side by sides, but in general, I would prefer a semi-auto shotgun for several reasons, not the least of which is I turn into more of a sissy everyday when it comes to my hands, shoulders, etc, etc.

Noreen BN-36 30/06 . I (Y'all could too. it shoots like butter)can put 20 rounds on target(3 inch spread max) at 100 yards as fast as you can pull the trigger from a bench. They sell a 300 win mag conversation kit I am going to buy so I can shoot both out of it.

My .308 Ruger American is a wonderful hunting rifle. Light and a full floated barrel that is an absolute tack driver. The action is super tight and feels great and we'll made.

The Mossberg 500 12 ga. pump is a wonderful tool. If you could only own 1 gun ,that'd be the one to have. You would be set for bunnies to buffalo.

My kids love them in 20 gauge. Older boy wants to hunt with his with slugs for deer, elk, and bear. I told him about the difference between smoothbore slugs and rifled slugs. He will need to get to work this summer to make money to buy a rifled barrel if he wants that.

I bought him some buckshot to try out, and the recoil didn't appear to bother him, so we have to find some smoothbore slugs next.

Both of them slayed turkeys this spring as well. The 7.5 shot heavyshot loads are amazing in 20 gauge with a "turkey" choke...

I recognize the utility of "black" rifles, however, I just can't get into them.

I had an old Winchester 63, I always loved that gun. Found out in the back pasture of our ranch, along with an over/under 12 gauge. That one was mangled beyond repair, but my grandfather paid to have the 63 fully restored for me. Unfortunately, somebody stole it in a house robbery about 5 years later, but it was my constant companion when at the ranch. I'd like to try to get another one, someday.

Have you ever fired a .375 ruger? If so what do think about it.

Have you ever shot a Mossberg rifle? If so what did you think about it.

I got that one for cost. It's a $2000 rifle and I got it for $500 bucks.
Since I have no need to pretend I am a soldier.. I have alway put off buying an M4 because I don't like the little chunk of lead it throws. Now a semi-auto precision rifle in 30/06? well that I can get behind and had to take her home.
The gas system is adjustable so you can shoot hot ass rounds out of it and turn the gas system up and down as needed to run the bolt. Recoil is ridiculously low out of it even with warm rounds.

Nice rifle, and a great bargain you got for sure.

Those are sweet rifles. I've got an Model 61 that my Dad bought new in the 60s.

I feel your pain on the burglary. Someone stole a custom .308 Win. my Dad gave me for high school graduation present in 1981...

I don't own any single shot rifles yet, but I will some day. In order of most fired to least: semi auto, lever action, bolt action, and pump action. Currently I'm probably enjoying my side folding CSA Vz58 the most. I have shot tens of thousands of rounds through AR pattern rifles, so I tend to shoot those with the most fluidity. If I had to go grab a gun right now for any purpose, it'd either be the Vz58 or one of several AR pattern rifles I own. Unless it was to fend off elephants. Then I'd probably go for the Henry 45-70.

For actual "tactical whatever the ****", I'm a huge fan of the AK action, even though I just own what amounts to an M4 with a quad rail and no funswitch. I have a lot more fun shooting old military surplus bolt guns thought.

From a practical standpoint, I have everything I need to tear down and rebuild an AR pattern rifle, up to and including spare parts, calipers, specs to ensure proper tolerances, and modified headspace gauges for .223 family cartridges. I can pretty much do it from memory, too. With that, decent suppressor compatibility, predictable and acceptable fouling cycles, and the largely sealed action, it is sort of my favorite by default. Once an AK pattern rifle goes down, it is not always easy to get running again. The lack of a well sealed action also causes issues when you start introducing foreign matter into it, and it's not like you can swap major parts like the barrel out all that easily. I don't know if the Vz58 has similar issues given the sheer openness of the action, and the short stroke gas piston. I know they don't suppress well, though.

That said, nothing puts a smile on my face like an old milsurp bolt gun or a well made lever action. Apparently I own too many rifles to be good at choosing a favorite action.
