Well here goes:  N.A. dangerous game customized O3A3 in .35 Whelen, Elk rifle Winchester Model 70 Classic .30-06, Deer rifle Old style Ruger M77 .270, Varmint Kimber .22-250, African CZ 550 .375 H&H, will be adding a Winchester Featherweight in 6.5 and a Charles Daly Mini-Mauser in 7.62x39.  And Yes all the rifles are equipped with the Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 (even the .22-250).  Shotguns, I have a soft spot for the Remington 1100 12GA used for doves and quail, Waterfowl Benelli Super Black Eagle and I will be adding a new O/U to this list very soon.  .22s there is only one in my book, the original Remington Speedmaster, essentially a full size Browning breakdown that actually works.  Pistols, Colt Woodsman .22 and of course anything that says 1911 and shoots a .45acp.

My favorite over all gun that I own is probably my Remington model 7 .260, because we have done so much together.Model Seven SS

Hunting handgun would be my .260 Savage Stiker because the left hand bolt design makes it so easy to operate for right handed shooters.

General handgun would be my Glock 21 because nothin says lovin like 13rds of .45.

Varmint rifle would be my Armalite AR-10T, accurate and lots of rounds of .308.

Bench would be my CZ700 (more of a sniper rifle but does super good off the bench) 

Big game would be either my 6.5 STW 700 or a Remington 700 .375 Ultra Mag that I don't own but would love to.

My overall favorite is my Remington PSS in .308.  It's currently wearing a Weaver 15X scope, but that will be changing shortly.  Not far behind, though, is my pre-64 Model 70 in .300 WM.  It has an ER Shaw barrel and a Super Sniper 16X scope.

 

My favorite handgun is my Springfield Armory Loaded 1911 in .45.

 

Favorite milsurp is one of my Lee Enfield Mk1No4's. 

 

I've got others that would be my favorite for what I use them for, like my 870 or my 10/22, but I wouldn't consider them to be my favorite guns.
