I'd pick up one of the rare as hens teeth Ruger #3's in 44mag or .357. Add a decent scope and I'd be happy.

wolf, why would you tell him to get a 50 or 75 yard gun at its best?

OP... If You Had $3,000 and You didn't wont Your sorry kids and grand kids to have it. What single shot rifle would You buy?


I would buy it... Where I would want to hunt 75 yards is a very long shot. Why buy a bean field gun for the thick woods.
A .357 or 44mag out of a rifle is plenty good out to 125yards. A handgun... ya, I would certainly limit either to 75 yards.

I will say those distances would be scoped. With iron sights, I'd limit myself to much closer shots.

Well, this is sure all over the map.

Maybe the OP could clarify something. Is he thinking about a practical hunting rifle, in a practical easy to get caliber, to be readily used for hunting by the grandchildren?

Or, is he looking for something rare and collectible, that would perhaps greatly appreciate in value, that they would keep over the mantle or in the safe and hug once in a while? And maybe just maybe carry into the woods once or twice, praying that they don't drop, dent or ding it?


Huge difference.

He tells you right here. Single shot rifle. But we each have our own likes and dislikes so we choose based on them. I just prefer my single shot rifles to have 2 shot barrels over them.
