    as the title reads, if you could...........money no object, which 5 firearms would make it into your world. If you care to post a reason for your choice, that would be interesting as well. Give it a shot (no pun intended) let's see if there is some consistency to our preferences...................you don't have to be limited as to age of weapon either. could be current, 25, 50, 100 years +

    a good rifle in the M1-Garand. or the M1903-A3
    a good shotgun in the rem. 870.
    a good plinker in the marlin M60.
    and a good fun toy in the AK-47 or 74.
