    Has to be my Winchester Model 68. I had it for years thinking, for some reason, it was a Stevens, until I really took a look at it one day and realized it was a Winchester.

    Mine is a BSA Model 12 (Martini Action) which I’ve had it for over 20 years. It was made in the early 1920s, and I love to amaze people by winning competitions with it even today.

    Weatherby MkXXII, mag fed, iron sights and came with a little 3x9 scope. My mother got it for my dad as a 1st year wedding anniversary present back in 1963. Monte carlo stock deep rich blueing-to this day a beautiful little .22-thanks Dad....

    Steve, I'd love to shoot in the match, but the practicality of being able to do so from this side of the pond is a bit daunting - seems the targets are different for a start........

    My Winchester 1890 made in 1909 has been my favorite since I was 12 (a long time ago) but my new 10/22 TakeDown is gaining.

    The 1963 Marlin Golden 39A that my grandfather bought new is my favorite. Can't wait for squirrel season to come in.
