Default Which Ones Would You NOT Do Without?

O'kay fellow hunters and shooters, this may be the hardest
question you've been asked since the beginning of the new
year: which TWO rifles in your collection would you NOT do
without? Which TWO have been so "loyal" that they are
simply indespensable?

My choices would likely be my Winchester model 70 in .270
caliber and a model 94 pre-64 30-30, made in 1955 in near
mint condition!

Kindness to all,
Boltaction

Actually that is pretty easy. For me it is a matter of choosing a large and small caliber rifle.
Ruger 30-06 and my Ruger .17HMR.

Now if you narrowed that down to a single rifle or a single firearm, that would be a tough choice!

Not sure if this is intended for centerfire, rimfire, muzzleloaders, etc....

I have only owned one centerfire rifle since 1980, a Ruger M-77 in .243 with a 3x9x40 Leupold...I'll probably never buy another, simply no need...

My 2nd would be my .54 caliber flintlock that I made back in the '80s...I've killed around 40-50 deer with it and will be leaving it for my middle daughter...

If allowed a .22...My Remington 541-T with a curly maple stock wearing a 3x9x33 Leupold Compact...

Sako 75 in 30-06 for sure. The other choice is up in the air...probably my Win 1885 Low Wall in .243. If not that, then a Win 94 in .32 Win Spl (1953 vintage).

I love all my guns but none are irreplaceable. I would say my cheap little Marlin 30A Glenfield 30-30 is the only one I'll never part with except to pass on to my boys. It's the first rifle I ever owned, bought and payed for with my own money at the age of 12. It's also the gun I killed my first deer with.
