    Marlin 1894 44 mag w/ 16.5 inch ported barrel, and 94 Winchester 30 WCF. These will do anything I want done.

    Henry .22, and two Marlins, one in .357/38, and one in .30-30. Purpose, almost anything under the sun, from shooting soda cans to deer. The .357 is probably the most versatile, and matches up well with a .357 revolver for a quick BUG out option, requiring only one type of ammo for both weapons.

    Marlin 336 in .30-30 mostly for fun, or for deer if I ever get drawn for an AZ tag.

    Marlin 1894C Blued 38/357. Same purposes as tkruf. Since I have 2 .357 Magnum revolvers and 2 .38 revolvers, I get the advantages of being able to interchange ammo. Speed strips work well in it too, so reloads can go for the rifle or handguns. Versatile hunting with both calibers and numerous loads and configurations. Anything from deer up to 100 yards with .357s to medium and somewhat small game with 38. Great gun for any and all of the listed purposes. I like the ability to hunt with the same caliber rifle as the handgun I'm carrying and a pocket full of speed strips works in either one.

    Also, Henry .22 Magnum lever (black w/ octagon barrel). Buttery smooth action, accurate, fun to shoot. Medium to small game and plinking. It's groundhog/coyote/fox worst nightmare.

    Winchester Model 1886 .45-90
    Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine .32-20
    Winchester Model 94 Carbine .32 Winchester Special
    Winchester Model 1895 .405 WCF

    Savage Model 99 .300 Savage

    I've taken deer with all of them except the .32-20. The .32-20 is my special favorite though and sees most use for hiking, small game and varmint hunting, and plinking on our old place. The .45-90 would suit for all North American game and the .405 WCF was once considered appropriate for African species though it is a little on the light side for elephant.

    A Winchester 30-30 top eject that has taken more deer more various hunters in my family that I think would be possible to count.

    It worked quite well for TR.

    I do.

    .357 Magnum and .308 Winchester.

    Plinking for now; SD/HD later, when I am retired from a PD that insists I am technically on duty 24/7, and therefore must only use approved SD weapons 24/7.

    Marlin (.357) and Browning (308).

    If we can include lever-operated falling-block rifles, I also have two Ruger Number 1 single-shot rifles, a 45-70 for shooting stray buffalo, and a .375 H&H for shooting stray elephants. Well, OK, the Rugers are just for plinking, too, but I can dream.

    Marlin 336 in .30-30, got in a trade for beer in college. Tasco scope in Millet rings with pistol sights built into them. Hog, deer, and fun.

    Marlin .44mag, left at gunshop by a guy who got convicted of a crime while the gun was in for repair. I think he's the Daytona Beach serial killer (although the DBPD has already "cleared" him). I'm buying the gun as soon as I legally can. I'll use it for deer probably, and as an oddball in my collection.
