What’s the most unique long gun you’ve ever shot? And what long gun do you want to shoot next?
I shot a Sharps Buffalo rifle. The guy loaded black powder rounds for it. It was OLD.
I don’t know what I would like to shoot next, but I’m sure somebody will have something cool to shoot at my gun club this summer.
M1 Garand! PING haha! It was fun. Nailed the gong at 200 on all but the first round. Next?!? Colt M1855 would be great. A revolving cylinder rifle.
Winchester Model 1897
Winchester 04-22 Mod
What to shoot next, not sure
The most unique is a Mosin Nagant. The long gun I would like to shoot is a full auto Tommy Gun.
I want to shoot a 6.5 creedmoor bolt gun. I know it’s not exotic but I think it’d be fun
Ruger AC556, the SWAT team had those prior to getting MP5s. I wasn’t SWAT by any means, but I got the chance to shoot it and I took it.
Most exotic is my pre-WWII Schmidt-Rubin 7.5×55mm
Next might not be exotic and its definitely not a long gun, but its the Chiappa Rhino
A Hawkins .58 cal, mini-ball, black powder and a Damascus double barreled 12 gauge shotgun.
7.7mm Jap Rifle. Used to be dads. My Grandpap bought two of them for $12.
7.7mm can be bored out to use 30.06 bullets.
the second would be the Sears and Roebuck 22 that is actually a Marlin.
For my wife it would the Thompson Center 50 cal black powder.
Does an M203 count? LOL
@Michael1 yes, I’d say that counts!
@BJP I had one of those Sears/Marlins once!
That was two marriages ago… wonder what became of it…
When I was stationed at Ft. Hood,TX I fired a 155 MM Howitzer back in 1969 it is definitely rolling thunder fired it just over 18.5 Miles
I had to look up the size of the 155MM
That’s a little bit bigger than what I’ve shot so far, @Robert8.
Well you know my motto Dawn, “Go big or go home” but seriously, it’s serious business. No room for mistakes or do overs. I think golfers call it a Mulligan
Yup - a Mulligan (after a few well chosen other words usually )
I don’t know if I’ll ever get to shoot something that big, @Robert8, but I’m OK with that.
I was on a 155mm gun as well. It’s pretty cool.
