Continuing the discussion from My Favorite Firearm Of 2018:
@hrfunk got me started trying to figure MY favorite new for 2018 shooterer. It’s a painful exercise and they say: Misery loves company. So this thread is your invitation - you’re welcome.
Two questions for you:
Which new 2018 acqusition is your favorite?
Which firearm in your collection is your overall favorite?
Me? My Marlin 1894CS is my favorite 2018 acquisition. I’ve been spendy this year too. It beats out: 9mm STI Spartan V, 300 BO AR Pistol, 1 Marlin 7000, Marlin 880 Sq, and my 9mm M&P 2.0 5". It takes the favorite spot 'cause is is a cowboyish smile bringer that I’ve wanted since the early 1970s.
My Dan Wesson 715 Pistol Pack built in their Monson, MA era is my hands down favorite firearm. This is a very difficult choice for me 'cause it’s not my first pic for any specific function; it just won’t be called on to “work” until I’m approaching soldier number 20 in my private army. Shooting it and owning it are hedonic pleasures for me even if it is a highly capable fighting tool. Geek Trivia: the Model 15 is a Karl Lewis design and interestingly, to me, Karl Lewis is also the brainchild behind my other 357 revolver (my Colt Trooper Mk V).
And, yes, I noticed that my 2018 favorite directly complements my all time favorite. I’m just happy I didn’t have to consider ditching any of my other highly loved blasters to answer my questions.
