Default if you could have 5 single shots....

if you could have any 5 single shots what would they be???
heres the rules
1)it can be ANY single shot. old,new,ANY.
2)if its a interchangeable barrel system(t/c,NEF/h&r.....)you can have 2 barrels per frame.
3)it can have any scope/sight you want.
heres mine. i already have 3 of the five i want. :-D
1)NEF .410 26" barrel,full choke 3"chamber. its my favorite because it was my first gun i have a huntsman .50 cal muzzle loader barrel for it with a tasco world class 3-9x40 soon to be replaced with a bushnell 3-9x40 trophy
2)i also have this gun,it was my 2nd gun. NEF .12 ga 28"barrel mod choke,3"chamber. i have a H&R ultra slug hunter 20 .ga barrel for it. its fully rifled,24"barrel(1-28"twist) topped with a trophy 3-9x40 (going on the huntsman) to be replaced with a bushnell legend 3-9x40.
3)the last single shot i have.its a NEF .280 rem 26"barrel,1-10"twist,synthetic monte-carlo stock,topped with a simmons 3-10x44 .44 mag scope. i don't have a barrel for but i would get a .243 win 24"barrel with a bushnell 4200 elite 2.5-10x42.
4) a T/C encore in .300 mag topped with a bushnell 4200 elite 3-10x50. i would get a .260 rem barrel for it with the same scope.
5)T/C encore 22-250 rem topped with a loupold 6.5-20 vx.iii
these are my choices,what are yours???

Well I would hate to have to sell the rest, and narrow down to five, but here goes.
#1-Ballard #6 Schuetzen, in .32-40, with factory engraving, dst, 30" half octagon barrel. #10 checkering, extra grade wood with schuetzen buttplate.
#2-Ballard #7a Extra Long Range, .45-100 Ballard Everlasting, 30" half octagon, factory engraved, tang and Creedmore long range sights, extra grade wood, with Ballard shotgun hard rubber buttplate.
#3-Stevens #47,(on the 44 1/2 frame) factory engraved, with 30" half octagon .25-21 Stevens barrel, and matching .32-40 barrel, dst, checkered schuetzen stocks, palm rest, and Pope lever. (have one, but sans engraving)
#4 Stevens Pope, factory standard as made during Pope's tenure with Stevens, including two Pope made barrels in .33-40, and .28-30 calibers, with Stevens scope and midrange sights. (have one, but in .25-21 Stevens)
#5 Remington Walker long range rifle, in full octagon heavy 32" barrel, caliber .45-70, all the factory options available at the time, sst, engraving, long range sights, etc....

Might as well dream really big, if I'm only dreaming!

I think I would start with a Merkel stalking rifle and go custom after that.

1. Remington Rolling Block in 45/70 ( have one)
2. 308 Encore pistol (have one.)
3. 16.5 inch 308 rifle barrel for the Encore with a shoulder stock and forarm to make a short carbine in 308. Will have on when I can afford it. :grin:
4. a other pistol barrel for the Encore but I do not know what caliber I would want?
5. same as 4. only a other short rifle barrel maybe 45/70 so I could have a lighter 45/70.

The Remington I like so much I really would not need a other single shot like it as a sharps ect Ballard ect.

Said I never had much use for one, never said I didn't know how to use it.
