I will soon come into an inheritance and was thinking of buying my 3 "dream weapons" for hunting and that's what made me think of this post, but I changed the number to 5.

We do fairly well as is, so when my mother passed last year I wasn't thinking of what she had or owned, I was distraught. Now I have been thinking about how I can honor her and keep her with me. She was an avid hunter in her younger days here in ND and I have many B&W pics from the 40's and 50's of her with big bucks. That's what made me decide to do this. I decided if I buy these items, I will pass them to my kids and the reasons for them.

I have been a Western History nut for a long time and fell in love with the rifles of the day. My favorites are the Sharps 45-70, Henrey's in 45 LC, the Colt Navy 1861 Conversion in 45 LC, Parker side-by-side shotguns and the Kentucky Long Rifle in .50 cal.. Since I also bow hunt, I have decided to get a Byron Ferguson Patriot as well.

So these are my top 5 picks and you know why.
1. Quigley Sharps (34" barrel) .45-70 (least expensive shells) made by Davide Pedersoli, For all big game in ND.
2. Henry's Long barrel reproduction in .45 LC, For deer.
3. Parker Side-by-side reproduction (don't hunt with a Colt revolver)
4. Kentucky Blue Ridge Long Rifle .50 Ca., by Davide Pedersoli, For deer.
5. Byron Ferguson Patriot Longbow 55#

I won't be able to hunt anything without her being with me.

What are yours and why?

WOW, I guess I am really out of touch...lol I have NO idea what a lot of you mean. I know what an AR-15 is...lol There is so much stuff out there and I'm really stuck in the past on this one.

I'll have to find those pics. They are packed away and I'm not sure where, but I'm gonna look for them. I want to find them anyway, so I can have some blown up and fraimed.

I did notice that no one put the reasons why they want their drem weapon.
