What's the best gun you ever owned and why. This is not going to be easy for most, but maybe dont take it too seriously. I mean no ones going to take you to court if your not sure, but choose anyway. I have about two dozen best guns, but must go for a particular WW1 vintage .455 Webley Revolver. A MkV with birds head grip. Why? because it was magical, and found me. 1970s odd, gun shop central London. Only rifles and shotguns. I mentioned I liked handguns, 'Well, there is this old thing' said the chap, pulling it out from under the counter. He explained it had belonged to a farmer in Malaya who used to wear it while out on his horse in case of rebels and bandits. He had asked them to sell it for him, but it had sat in a draw for years. So, it was a real find. Then I went to shoot it. Standing in the sunshine, alone on the range with the First war revolver, and right then an old bi plane buzzed overhead. What more can a gun nut ask for from a gun but a really good memory.
