    And.....GO!

    Rifle: Ruger No. 1. Strong, allows for longer barrel given the same overall length of the rifle, classy, makes you make the shot count while its still pretty fast to load with practice.

    Pistol: Sig P220. Not lefty friendly and its a single stack with 8+1 capacity, but I bet it will run right out of the box with no 500 to 1000 round break in period and will be accurate to boot. Still feel like it fits my hand better than any pistol I’ve ever owned.

    Shotgun: Mossberg Maverick 88. Its a great HD shotgun for less than $225. Reliable...fool proof...and mean.

    Isn't the P220 one of the most popular pistols in the world?

    For underrated pistols, I'll go old school Ruger P series.

    Mine would be the Beretta PX4 Storm pistol. Smooth and accurate

    You don’t see very many compared to just about any other P-series gun. You see far more P226s and P229s.

    Beat me to it. I had over 11k through my P89 with barely a hiccup.

    Rifle: The cheap-o Scavages that Bi-Mart sells for $179 are amazingly accurate.

    Shotgun: Stevens "insert model here". I have 3 of them. Dirt cheap, lousy fit and finish but they just go bang when need be.

    I’m going to say a Glock double stack 9mm versions.

    HOLD ON!!! Hear me out!

    In response to the hate on Glocks in the overrated thread.

    Tell me another pistol that is as reliable, accurate, and as affordable out of the box.
    I have a 26, 19, 17, and 34.
    I can use the same holsters for all for, and I can use G17 mags for all four.
    It’s the most versatile.

    Name another pistol you can have a sub compact carry gun, a midsize, full size and competition gun that you can swap holsters and mags.
    Carry any gun and have back up mags around that will fit any platform.

    Okay, start your hate........

    I had thousands through my P94. Now it's my dad's truck gun.

    Just about any modern production handgun. Some are even more accurate for less money like CZ's.

    Remington pump rifle (or better yet: the carbine)! Model 14, .35 Remington caliber. Quite possibly the very best trifecta of portable, fast and powerful. Cougar and Bear guys that "do it with dogs" revere this gun.

    Tikka T3 & T3X rifles.

    I know there is a lot of love out there for them, but still under rated in my opinion.

    I would have to say that Marvin the Martian's Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator, produced in small numbers and not often seen was vastly underrated.

    Biotch to load though.

    Ruger LCP in .38 special. No one ever talks about them, but everyone seems to own one...go figure.

    Bolt actions in general seem to get less love these days with the popularity of pistols and semi-auto rifles.

    But that’s okay, under appreciated means less money!

    Can't agree there. Owned one, and it was more finicky than a kindergartener at a salad bar.

    Under appriciated, i would say pre war bolt actions, particularly of the European variety, you almost never see or hear of them any more. Rhinemettle, Holland &Holland, Jeffries, or Husqvarna any one!

    Because Glocks have never had any problemos...
    Nary a problem with my CW45. Close to 3000 rounds thru it, if not more.

    Hmmm, I can't find anywhere in this thread where I mentioned Glocks. And the Kahr I had hated any kind of hollow points. Steep feed ramp and even a polishing didn't help. That was my experience anyway. Seems like lately I'm not supposed to share my thoughts.
