I did the exact same thing a couple years ago. in that time that rifle has killed 12 antelope, 16 deer, 2 coyotes and 2 elk. it's my number 1 go to rifle for big game hands down. my wife and son use it too so I'm in the process of putting together duplicate set ups so I can get mine back!

Don't use it much , but got an old Savage 340 in 30-30 with a Lyman 4x , best shooting 30-30 I ever shot . Was beat to hell when I got it , still a rough looking bugger and action is rough , but she shoots good and don't mind the weather .

Years ago I bought an old Remington Model 41 single shot .22 rifle. The action and barrel are a single piece of steel. That old bolt action is still plenty accurate and serves me well as a farm gun.

i have a lot of old guns, since i have been collecting for years and have only sold one or two in my lifetime. But as the single shot topper 20 guage was mentioned multiple times. That was my first shotgun at about age nine. I made the mistake of wanting more firepower so it got traded in on a remington 870 in 16 guage, which i still have. but i regretted forever trading in that single shooter. so.... at gun shows everytime i saw one couldn't break myself from buying them. so i have multiple copies now. and still wish i had the original one.
i have turn of the century as in 1900 shotguns in .410 that i still use now and then today.
I did buy a 340 last year having always admired them. might shoot it someday.

I like my Remington model 510 “Target Master”...... single shot bolt 22. Usually find them for 50-150 bucks at the gun shows. I have one that I got from my dad that I refinished and drilled/tapped for scope mounts with a Leupold 2-7 on it.... Scary accurate and built a little heavier..... more full size than a lot of other 22’s. I have 4 others, plan on fixing them up for my kids when they outgrow their chipmunks.

I bought one of these a few years back but paid a little more than the $210 than you did, $750 iirc., I probably should give it a whirl.

My old Ithaca Model 37 12 gauge plain barrel Dad bought me when I was 12. It's seen a lot of hunts and a lot of ammo. Always handy for pests on the farm. I've owned my share of shotguns over the years and it's my favorite for hunting.

I bought a Stevens model 200 in .223 with a 3x9 Nikon pro staff used for $125. The guy didn't like the Tupperware stock. It shoots tiny groups and rides behind the seat of the pickup!

I use for rabbits, squirrels, grouse and have shot a couple of coyotes with it. It seems to go along because its so light and can do so many things.

Anybody have a cheap gun they find surprisingly useful?

I remember those shotguns being on the rack in the gun store where I worked during the 1980s. They always intrigued me because they seemed well made and were always for sale for less than $100.00.


You mean you never owned one? I've had them in 10,12,20,28, and 410 gauges.

I shoot trap with a Mossberg 500 AHTD that I paid $110 for back in 1975 and have yet to break a part on it. It must havw over 5000 rounds through it and still works great. It has a Boyds roll over cheekpiece, thumbhole stock on it and a Briley light full extended choke tube in it and is deadly from the 27 yard line.

Graf's has it for a $1 per piece. Break out the 14 and have at it.

For 22 rimfire knock abouts I use either a Remington 514 or Marlin 25 for long guns and an Iver Johnson Sealed 8 as a handgun.
Centerfires it's either a Bubba'd 1906 Lee-Enfield or a Remington Model 8 in 35 Rem. Hanguns typically are a S&W 66 or an old Webley in 38 S&W.
Shotguns are an old Iver Johnson 16 ga single shot or a Winchester 23 in 12 ga.

For both the odd and cheap win, it'd be a straight pull Mannlicher M95. It was picked up on a whim for $75, including 14 loaded clips. With a high enough front sight to zero it at 100, it's a handy little carbine.

I have a H&R Topper Junior in 410 I keep by the back door to keep the limb rats off my wife's bird feeder. It was a gift from my Dad when I was 10 years old. I think he gave $15 for it.

I have Savage 22 Mag that was cheap that I like. But I would like it better if it was higher quality would mean it would have to cost more.

Interarms Mini-Mark X in 223. I paid well under $300 for it and it rode with me everywhere for a decade or more.
