Picking a single firearm from my collection is very difficult, but I finally have selected one rifle and one Handgun.
My rifle selection is a M1 Garand. This is special to me because I built it from scratch. This past June I was fortunate to attend the CMP Advanced Maintenance Class in Anniston Alabama. The receiver was made in September 1957. The internals are Springfield parts that were individually selected and refinished (Parkerized). The only non GI parts are the Criterion barrel and new Boyd stock set. I have shot a few hundred rounds through it and I can routinely put all the rounds in the 9 or 10 rings on a SR1 target at one hundred yards.
As for a Handgun, I selected my SR1911 from Ruger by way of TALO. It has a 4.5" barrel. The gun is stainless steel with a black Nitride finish and night sights. It's not the most accurate Handgun in my collection but I can put all the round in the black at any distance up to 25 yards.

Rifles:
Today I'd have to say it's my CMP Special Garand (308) but in a few weeks it's going to be the Scout-rifle I'm cobbling together / having built around a stripped M1 receiver I got from CMP...

Handguns:
My SR9, black nitride, hand polished internals, Adjustable Fire-sights & a polished aluminum striker indicator.... It's slightly more accurate than my SR9c and a joy to shoot!

Now you guys have me thinking again! I already posted my rifles. For handgun, I'd have to select my Ruger SRH Alaskan.

My "flagship" rifle is my Custom pre-war Model 70 .257 Rob'ts, although I love my 43 year old Model 77 7X57mm, my scatter gun is my vent rib deluxe field grade Model 42

I can't really pick a "flagship", it's like picking a favorite child

I would say right now it's my .45 ACP Vaquero Birdshead, it's the gun that finally got me into Ruger SA's (even though I have two Blackhawks that have been dust collectors) and it led to a 9mm Blackhawk and a desire for others, so after almost 10 years of being into Ruger DA's, and nearly 20 of being a DA revolver fan I guess this gun finally brought out my love of the thumb buster lol

Mine is my avatar...a 4" full-lug, fixed-sight GP100 in .357 magnum...which was never a production revolver in that set-up! Shoots like a dream...sub-3" groupings shooting 158 grain JHP's from Hornady at 35'/7m. In 2009 we sold all but three (3) due to losing both of my jobs within a week. I really wanted a GP100 back (I sold 6 of them during that time) and took the time to pray specifically about it on several occasions. The Lord provided this...and it's been my favorite GP100 of all 7!

Ruger GP100. Easiest of all my guns to shoot. Insanely reliable.

GONRA is on a distinguished road
GONRA's 24mm Swiss M41 semiauto antitank gun.
To get an idea of the short recoil action, pick up your Luger pistol,
rotate it counterclockwise 90 degeess. 6 round mag hangs out RH side.
Only 8 in the U.S.& A. as far as I know.
So its difficult for "advanced Luger collectors" to get a specimen.

Mine would be a S&W 27-2 .357 Mag with a 5" barrel in presentation box with all the goodies,
and a Colt New Frontier in 45 Colt with a 7-1/2" barrel.

So now...........how many of you shoot your "flagship" guns, or do they just stay in a box in the safe? I personally won't own anything I am not willing to shoot. Don't care how rare, or how much it's worth. If I buy it, I AM going to shoot it. That said, I also don't have anything that can't be bought. You want it bad enough, I WILL sell it to you
