I have owned about everyone on the list except for the .50 and the flamethrower at one time or another, and still have about 3/4 of them now.

 

For me it will always be the M1 Garand.  That is my favorite rifle to shoot.  Behind that would be the Johnson or BAR.  When I take either to the range, I always get a crowd of people come look at them.  In fact I don't know if I have shot the BAR.  Everyone crowds me and I can never fire it.  lol

This is on par with choosing a favorite of your own children. However, how can anyone argue with the Thompson? .45 cal with rapid-fire capability?  No question.

I like the Thompson, but it looks way cooler than it is to comfortably shoot.  It's pretty comfortable to shoot at the hip, but at the shoulder it just doesn't fit well.  It is fun on full auto with a 50rd drum though.  :)
