What do you guys use for plain old hunting. Forget all about SHTF. Just your favorite guns you like to take to the range and the field.

-shotgun
-rifle
-rimfire rifle or plniker
-your other gun, a muzzleloader, a varmit rifle, or maybe even a hunting pistol.

Mine:

Browning BLR in 450 marlin
Citori 12ga 26" barrels fixed improved cylinder / modifed choke

And my T/C omega in SS

I take this particular .22 every time I go regardless of what else I take, because it is such a blast to shoot with and it's cheap to feed.



Golfballs at 40-50 yards are fun

Edit*

Here is my main squeeze hunting rifle - Ruger M77 Mark II - 7mm Mag



Did not have a pic of it so I just snapped one for ya.

Bow can definitely be included.

I have a Hoyt turbohawk I bought last year. My 30 yard groups look like my old 20 yard groups with that bow. Tihs is because I had an outfitter set my bow up properly. I was shooting too short of a bow. The cheek bit helped a ton too. Still won't shoot past 30. Don't even play around with past 30. When I shoot 3D shoots, I don't even shoot past 30 then, I walk up to 30 yards and shoot. I get much more chances to take deer during bow season.

They cost more, but I don't ever have to be concerned about another hunting rifle.

Actually, I got the BLR for a little over $500 used. I would of prefered a .35 cal like 358 win or 35 whelen, even a 444 marlin. The gun kicks pretty good with peep sights I put on it. I actually put a scope and steel rings on it to reduce recoil through added weight. The 1-4x32 bushnell 3200 elite with firefly recticle is great. Great low light response and the recticle glows in the dark. That scope is my favorite now. Best of both worlds in low magnifcation. No sights to line up, see where I am shooting easily in low light, and a great field of view. Roughly 65 feet at 100 yard.

Citori's are usually $1500+ new. I got this one for $600. A 1978 model. It was lower priced because it's fixed choke. I don't shoot ducks or need steel for pheasants or other birds in my state, yet..... Chokes are improved and modified, eaxactly what I would of put on it anyway. Only bit of a pain is skeet. I reload for each shot in single with the improved barrel. On doubles I shoot the outgoing bird wit hthe modified, and the incoming with the improved barrel. I bought another citori since then with chokes, I only loose maybe 1 sometimes 2 birds due to the fixed chokes though. Trap singles is fine with the modified barrel. Trap doubles I have a bit of trouble. I need to hit that first bird quick, but you need to anyways. When I'm late on the first bird, the second bird is tough with a modified choke. I rarely shoot trap doubles anyway, maybe 1 or 2 rounds a year. I don't shoot handicap trap either, all at the 16 yard line.

Browning X-Bolt 270 win with a Leupold VXII 3-9x40 with handloaded 150 gr partitions
Mossberg 464 30-30 with a Skinner aperture and 170 gr Core-Lokts
Remington 597 22lr with a Bushnell 4x32

All three are pretty controversial choices if you research them, but they've all worked flawlessly for me. The Browning is the most accurate rifle I've owned. The 597 is a newer model with metal mags, and it has never had any issues. In fact, I don't think I've ever cleaned it. The Mossberg has only been shot 8 times. It was bought for hunting, and that's all it gets pulled from the safe to do.

I need a new shotgun, and I'm thinking about a 44 mag revolver.

Ruger M77 Mark II 30-06, with a 100 dollar Bushnell on the top that replaced the 500 Leupold I had on it but never felt comfortable with. This gun is like an extension of me, when I pull it up the cross hairs center on what I was looking at.

The gun I usually grab these days is my Rossi model 92 in 44 mag. It works great for anything I'm gonna hunt here in Louisiana. I am in the process of trying to set up my Saiga .308. I just got it and haven't even put optics on it yet.

Of course my Browning 12 gauge is what I grab for waterfowl, upland game, or turkey. My wife got me a 10 gauge Browning for goose hunting about 3 years ago, but I still haven't used the damn thing.

For tree rats and rabbits, I use my 10/22. I've been thinking really hard about getting a Ruger Single Six for squirrels and rabbits. Who knows, I might get one by the start of the season.

1895 Marlin 45/70 22"bbl
Marlin 39A Mountie 22lr
Winchester 1894 30/30
S&W 66-4 357mag/38spec 4"bbl
S&W 686-5plus Mtn Gun 4"bbl

For me this covers all my needs. Ammo is found about everywhere and is relatively cheep(except the 45/70). I can cast for the 45/70 to cut cost. JMO.

Actually, I don't have any dream rifles. Never much of thinking of what I can't have. I do shoot quite a bit with folks who have $4000+ shotguns. I don't feel left out one bit.

What I really dream of is having a 250+ yard range to shoot at. Could be a local hunting club or at home.

Currently I only have a 50-75 yard range at home and a 100 yard at the local hunting club. There are clubs with 200 and longer ranges, just don't care to drive that far to shoot.

Once I get that, I want something again in .243, .260 remington, 6.5x55 mauser, or maybe 25-06. A good medium range to long range deer / coyote rifle.

If I shoot enough longer range, I may be comfortable breaking the 150 yard limit for big game.

For hunting my favorite rifle is my Browning BLR in .308

Favorite pistol is a Colt SAA in .44 Special

Favorite .22 is my Henry Golden Boy

For a shotgun I have a Mossberg 500 pump but I'm looking for a old fashioned double barrel coach gun.
