    "the Ten Manliest Firearms"......

    This is amusing.........(keep in mind, it is HIS opinion!)
    This was a hard piece to write, because guns by definition are manly, except for Berettas, gold-plated TEC9s, .25 caliber pistols or anything made by the French. To simplify things, I have limited it to modern cartridge firearms a man might, can, and should collect and shoot. There are certainly other manly weapons, and you may have a different list. As long as the list contains nothing French, gold-plated, .25 or with pearl grips (which Patton correctly observed are the mark of a New Orleans pimp), it is a good list.

    #10: SMLE
    #9: Mosin-Nagant M44
    #8: GLOCK
    #7: Swiss K31 Carbine
    #6: AK47
    #5: Smith & Wesson Model 29
    #4: AR15
    #3: Remington 870
    #2: Colt Model 1911A1 .45 ACP
    #1: Barrett M82 .50 caliber rifle

    My list would be a bit different.......I think I would lean more towards a list list of 'must own' firearms versus the manliest ones.

    I'll be danged. I've got everyone on that list except the Barret, which I had at one time.
    Now I've got 2 other .50 BMG's.

    Am I still "manly" ?
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    "This was a hard piece to write, because guns by definition are manly, except for Berettas, gold-plated TEC9s, .25 caliber pistols or anything made by the French..."

    The Beretta packed by Sgt. Maj. Brad Kasal, USMC, and recipient of the Navy Cross looks pretty "manly" to me.

    An Airsoft gun in the hands of Sgt. Maj. Kasal would be "manly" IMHO.

    I betcha the poster of that list wouldn't want to have a 92F stuck up his nose anytime soon.

    If you need a gun (much less ten) to define your "manliness..."
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I've got 6 of them.I don't see the need of the 50cal mainly due to the expense
    of ammo and the size.

    A real man doesn't need a gun, only his bare hands to defend himself.
