Lets have a good time listing these.
I have been very fortunate to have been exposed to many firearms in my life and fired most of them.

handguns from .22-50a.e. and many rifle calibers i.e. 45-70

rifles from .17 to 460 wby mag.


when I say the most fun, I mean,what made you laugh and grin.

For me I would have to say an obscure little handgun called the Automag III in .30 carbine. I fired it the first time in an indoor range and all I can say is, THAT WAS AWESOME!!!
I was the only one on the line, low light and touched it off. The basketball size of flame that rolled out of the muzzle was very impressive and the boom even with muffs was surprising. The best part was coming off the range and the guy at the counter asking what the hell I touched off in there. I showed him and we went back on the line and let him fire it. You counldnt have wipe the smile off his face.

Lets hear em.

I am jealous, I have never had the opp to fire a big .50, maybe one of these days.I will say that the .460 Wby and the .416 Rigby impressed the heck out of my shoulder.

Ma Deuce, followed by (in no particular order) Mk 19, Barret .50, AT-4, SMAW, (these two I guess I shouldnt count as they are rocket launchers, but still fun) MP5, M249, M240, M203, Scorpion.... gosh... this could take a while.

DFW area.....Wylie.
I took my brother in-law and nephew to a training course. We all got to shoot HK MP5's in full auto. That was a ton of fun. My nephew got to shoot one with a suppressor on it and his smile was huge. We got that on video camera and sent him home with the dvd.

Hmmm, that's a toughy. Like alot of gun nuts I've had the opportunity to fire tons of stuff since I was about 10 or so.

Revolver - probably the first .44 mag I ever shot, was a 8"something model 29.

Semi-auto pistol - the ole trusty .44 AUtomag, same guy who owned the model 29.

Full-auto pistol, a HK VP70 with the stock on so it would do the 3-shot bursts. That was fun.

Single shot rifle - .600 nitro express. Guy had inherited it from his uncle with 2 boxes of shells while we were in college. Took it out to the range and touched one off. Wasn't sure I wanted to live after it kicked the crap out of my shoulder. Was literally a blast.

Bolt gun - a 375 H&H magnum safari rifle. Had some kick, but was vary satisfying seeing what it did to the targets.

Semi-auto - a PSG1 owned by the Los Alamos NL security forces. I was in HK nerdvana.

FUll-auto - a M14 when I went on a depents cruise with my father back in the day. We got to fire a mag semi off the fantail of the ship at gargabe bags, then a second mag with the fun switch in the go go go position. Was like trying to hold onto a jackhammer to a 10 year old kid.

But the best of all was on the same cruise I got to touch off one from the deck gun. Ship was a subtender built back between WW1 and WW2, but still in service and it had the old open crew served mounted deck gun. I think it was a 3", but it may have been a 5". I got to sit in the traverse seat and pull the firing trigger.

We'll I was a M240 Gunner for 4yrs... so I'm pretty partial to it. After that I would place in order:

Browning M2
(I love my full auto's)
81 then 60mm mortars
Remington 870 express, and other pump action shotty's

Well basically anything that packs a bang and causes mass damage makes me happy
