When you grab one like that

When you grab one like that you are suppose to hang on tight and not let them go.  If you let them go that is when they do you harm.

favorite rifle?

It has to be the rifle that I have wanted since I was a teenager and finally got when I was 48.

SMLE .303 British Lee/Enfield full military made by BSA and actually made in Birmingham England, in the orginal BSA factory.  It was built in 1944 and ended up in the Knoxville Armory as a return on the WW2 lend/lease program.  When I bought it, it was still packed in it's shipping grease....basicly a new rifle.

Did you purchase through a registered gun dealer or straight from Knox?

I happened to have a freind who was a gunsmith.  He knew someone who bid on a lot sale from Knoxville and was trying to sell the guns through a classified ad in a trade magazine.  My freind knew what I was looking for and ended up ordering a total of 3 guns from the lot, all #4MK1 SMLE's.  Unfortunately, he wasn't able to get one with the volley sight tha I wanted, but I was very happy with what I was able to buy.

It was shipped to the dealer that he was working for at the time, so it was purchased through a registered dealer.

Hmmmmm....

Remington Nylon 66 in .22 LR........J/K:D

 

Remington 700 Mountain Rifle in .280 Rem, Leopold 2.5-8X VXIII. The first new rifle I bought, besides the Nylon 66. They had them on sale at Woolworth's for $299. That's for the 700, not the plastic gun.

I have all kinds of favorites

I have all kinds of favorites depending on the situation but like one poster said, if the house was burning down and I had to grab one it would have to be my lee enfield no5mk1"jungle carbine".  It was a brand new rifle when my family got it and it was eventually handed to me and I will hand it to one of my sons.  (I liked the dolly solution as well but my safe isn't coming out without a crane)
