Despite our disagreements.....this is another thing that we have in common. I have an old Stevens Favorite .22. My prone rifle is an FWB single shot. I hunt grouse and Pheasant with a MLing 16 gauge Fowler. There is a Browning BPCR Hi-wall in .45-70 as well as an H&R Break open also in .45-70. A T/C Contender and Encore with a bunch of barrels. Then there's the one that I have no use for but I wanted it just because. A Ruger #1 Tropical in .416 Rigby. Two British rifles: a 577-450 Martini and a .310 Cadet.
It wasn't until I had these that I started in with multi-shot guns.
None from China.

Me To I am prown to the TCR just because to me they are a fine looking single shot and not everyone has them more like a fine English Stalking rifle I have had a number of number ones they are nice. This is my 83 mag frame with a SSK 45-70 barrel and a Bushnell Trophy Hunter 3x9x40

Yep. Me too. I have about a dozen single shots ranging from 22 rimfire to 356 Winchester. Like all of them, but my favorites are the TCRs. +1 with Deaconllb. The TCRs are fine looking rifles, not mention good shooters. IMHO, looks do matter and you can't beat blued metal and good walnut stocks. My two cents worth.

Good evening
Have not bought a SS that I did not like. From flintlocks to Ruger's they just seen to fit my desires.
25-20 (German) up to 50-100 (Ballard) and even a 56-50 Peabody. Largest would be a caliber .84 wall gun.

Looking for answers... try the Bible. John 5:39

I also enjoy single shots also: bolts, rolling blocks, falling blocks, break actions, and muzzle loaders as well. They range from .22 lr to .43 spanish and .45-70, and up to .58

I have had two Ruger#1B 's two NEF' s and a bolt Savage that I was using for 1000 yard shots. Plus an Encore pistol with three different barrels. Now I'm down to one NEF and one #1B. And they are both 30 caliber a.i. chambered.

Unless I have one or two at my oldest son's house......

I really like my handguns and Single shot rifles!

Same here Mule. Have a couple bolts and a falling block. Nothing special. My mentor when shooting Junior NRA had several Schuetzen rifles. He loaned me a Griffin and Howe bull barrel 30.06 to shoot our 200 yd matches.

Here’s a Ruger #1V in 22-250. Makes a nice offhand rifle if shooting center fire.I love single shots-b090db1c-39f3-4332-b305-80c735298376_1558016499439.jpg

Count me in!

However, I don't discriminate, if it launches a projectile via rapid combustion of some mix of chemicals, I like it.

Go Donald Go!!
