CZ Model 550 American in 9.3x62 Mauser. The reasons I would choose this one is:

1) I like it and it is accurate.

2) It has enough power to take anything on earth from rabbits to elephant.

3) It is very popular world wide even though Americans don't know much about it.

4) Components are readily available and bullets can be had in both softs and solids.

5) Because it is a fairly slow round it does not do a lot of meat damage.

All of the above can also be said of the 375 H&H Mag and I've got 2 of those but I'll still take the 9.3x62.

Hey Mike, did you get tired of the tyrant on the other site we were on? I find I don't miss it a bit, but I do miss some of the posters.

Not one real hunter has answered this correctly since it started.

Just an impossible task to hunt with just one gun, rifles do not lend them selves well to ducks, geese, grouse and partridge.
Squirrels and rabbits don't stand up to hits from a high power rifle either.
Shot guns don't work so auto well for thing on the plains and so on.

Just one? Not even 1 rifle and 1 shotgun? Maybe I joined the wrong forum.

They asked for guns not rifles!!!!! Ruger would be my natural pick for both handguns and rifles and even shotguns!!! Lot to choose from.

I would choose my 7mm-08 Remington. I like the 5R Rifling and the softness of the trigger is just awesome. It is so light the rifle is so accurate. The 120 grain Accutip Remington on a bull moose filled my freezer this fall. And I believe it will do that over and over again when I do my part, and also if I continue to treat it like a precision instrument.
