    Snake that's just plain hurtful! I left the .270 off of my list. Oh yeah it was about guns and not calibers! :guns:

    The Enfields are the ugliest guns made and have no appeal to me.

    Just gotta learn to appreciate them, think of them like a Fugly girl that was the best sex you ever had, even though you wouldn't wanna be seen in public with her. :yikes: :tooth: :roll2: :roll2:

    I've got a GREAT looking sporterized No 4...I think it was built as a sporter from the factory. Got a five round magazine, reblued, no headspace problems, nice walnut stock. I guess you have to like them a little, which I do. If I could, I'd take a picture of it to get your opinion.

    Here's a picture, I think:

    I'd have to say the little NAA-type mini revolvers. They're built like Swiss watches, but I can't hit the side of a barn with one if I'm standing in a stall. Too tiny for my hands.

    It's not CPJ's hands that are small. It's a different body part.

    Should he have a funeral for it?

    Maybe a viewing beforehand? We'll let Buffco know when to come by. He can bring a pie.

    And finally sub 22 caliber anything. To me they're useless. They're cute, and they are a novelty. But I think that their use on medium game and larger should be discouraged for anyone except a skilled shooter who can surgically place the bullet in a small but very lethal area.
    Not all rifles are deer rifles. A .204 Ruger going 4600fps is a hoot! It is an excellent target/varmint round.

    It's not dead, just unused. Well, that's not true. Anyway, I wonder what one goes for on the open market? Kind of Like an unused gun. No reason for it to be hanging around. Might as well pass it on (for cash ) to someone who needs it.

    Buffy says it has a weird grip angle. That will hurt the resale value.

    Ahem..........Shot the last 4-5 deer with my 204 using factory 45g psp. Got more 'grunt' than a 222 with 50gr psp's according to the ballistic charts I have perused.......

    Ok, I'll join in.

    Mausers.

    I have a couple of friends that can go on, infinitum, ad nauseum.

    Swede this, Argentine that, Egyptian so forth. Spanish what have you.

    I get it, the grand daddy of the vast majority of modern bolt action rifles.
    when I see one there is just no emotional stirring.

    I suppose I have no soul.

    Ok, true confession time is over.

    Shotguns of any flavor. I have a few for their prescribed utilities, but I have not and will not seek them out for whimsical purchase.

    Other than the cheap made guns about the only thing that doesn't stir something inside me is the ar15.......tried to like the m16 in the corps but could never warm up to it.
    My preference is 1873 SAA revolvers and lever guns.

    Lugers. They are tail-heavy, don't point right for me, too 'un-simple.'

    Mosin-Nagants. Just ugly and rough.

    Remington 1100 shotguns - can't explain this one - just don't feel right.

    Mannlicher stocked rifles. Just don't appeal to my eye.

    Berettas

    I get the .277 part. It's sort of a popular thing to do on this forum. But .243?

    Really?
    yep, I have enough .284" and .264" that I find adding a .277 or .243 superfluous

    Amen to that. Pop a few prairie dogs at 400+ yards with one and you might just change your mind. Like you said, it's all a matter of proper application.

    Never did respond to the OP.....For me, the firearms that don't turn my crank are the whole gamut of Russian, Chinese, Combloc trash... Mosin Nagants, SKSs, AKs just don't do a thing for me. They could be giving them away and I wouldn't get in line for one....

    No desire for an AR. I prefer M1 and SKS

    1911s do nothing for me.

    I know, I'm a heathen.

    Most modern European guns like Blazer R8 etc. Quality is excellent..just not my thing.

    S&W anything, just does not lift my skirt up. I would rather have a Ruger revolver. Their AR is over priced IMO, and I am really starting to love my Ruger SR9c over an M&P

    Beretta anything.

    Most mil surp.

    Savage bolt actions. They just look so over sized.

    To an extent, the R700. My preferred bolt action will always be the Winchester 70, pre, post, NH, SC, Portugal, don't care, love em.

    Cz 75/97. Those tiny slides just turn me off
