Count me in for a good old fashioned Tommy Gun. Rollin in Dick Tracey style, flames blazin. Yessir, a good ol typewriter.

Or maybe a Desert Eagle .50 cal - I know, totally cheesy. But if you haven't seen the movie "Snatch" (No it's not porn!) go rent it and you'll want one too!

Two votes for OZ. The scene in reference is hilarious.

My pick would be a Krieghoff Classic Big Five side by side double rifle chambered in either 500/416 flanged or 470NE. I would have a Swavorski PV-I 1.25-4x24 scope on quick release mounts.

If I can ever scrounge up the money I would love to stalk Cape Buffalo at close range in Africa. The age of hunting the big five is passing quickly but I would have love to live in a time where that would be possible.

Grrr.... Must... Stop... Reading... Capstick!

Whats your all time dream gun?!!!

my winchester '94 is my baby ive had it since i was 11 or 12 years old. i got it after my single shot was stolen. it was probably about time too considering that the stock on that rifle was shortened to fit me when i was 6 or 7.

but the best rifle ive ever used is my fathers 7mm mag.... on a day when there wasnt much moving i paced off a 8in miss (firing at not on a pecan tree) from about 700 yards. the 18X redfield scope helped alot on that one im sure.

Dream Gun: the M-4 mounted M-203 that i caried in the service. M-4s were still experamental when i got mine so it had semiauto and fullauto selectors plus a 40mm grenade launcer under it... the newer versions of the M-4 has 3-round bursts instead of the full auto.

P.S.that 7mm hits just a hare to the right

My dream gun would be a custom Remington 700 chambered for the Remington or Weatherby 7mm Magnum. Of course, this rifle would have a good Zeiss variable-power scope on it, and would probably have a synthetic stock.

The only problem with watching "Snatch" is that the Desert Eagle .50 is not what it seems in the movie. Tis a movie. I would like for you to show me a time when a person can shoot a Desert Eagle with one hand.

It is a great gun though and i would feel sorry for the man that tries to shoot one handed...it will only happen once, i assure you.

Thanks

:smile: Good point.

Hollywood never seems to let physics get in the way of a good scene or special effect. The guy manhandles the D.E. 50 like its a squirt gun.

I shot my 30-06 one handed a few times, it wasn't very pleasant, I was way off my target. Luckily enough, it wasn't an animal.

Yeah, a few years back I thought I'd be cool while camping at the river with my buddies. We were using 3" magnum load slugs in our 12 guages to tear apart these small trees, I decided to fire the "finishing" shot at the trunk with one hand... I honestly thought I broke my wrist!!! Oooouuuuucch!!!
