    So I have seen many post on whats your favorite firearm.
    So thought id ask what is your scrap iron, or best used as door stop firearm you have or had.

    I had a Jennings 22LR that would jam every other round no matter what ammo I used.
    Phoenix Arms HP22 its a 22lR with two barrels and every freaking safety addon made by man.
    Its made in Ontario California and there is your clue. Its a good looking firearms arm, but gees
    has Mag lock, hammer lock, trigger lock, mag can be removed unless safety is put on gees its like taking a math quiz to use it. :cool:

    I have a 100 year old winchester 97 that has seen better days. The barrel is badly rusted and pitted and I would be afraid to shoot it.

    If it isn't reliable I haven't kept it.

    If I had to choose I guess my .22lr revolver.

    I have an old Remington 12ga my stepdad gave me.
    It's a little beat up, rusty, but will keep it around. My stepdad said he bought it in the 60s and shot the heck out of it as a kid putting food on the table.

    Hmmm, I don't any 'doorstop' firearms. Anything I have is fully functional and reliable. My father has an old .32 revolver (U.S. Arms, I think - haven't looked at it for a while) - it's not a high-quality gun, and doesn't function, but it has sentimental value, so he holds on to it.

    I have one too. Was my great uncles. It's accompanied by his death certificate. Worth more to me than anything else I own.

    And to stay on topic, besides my Ithaca .45 I store a few other family heirlooms that "could" be considered "scrap iron" by some who have an uneducated eye at a secure location. At home, it's a combination of Glocks depending on what room I am occupying. :cool:

    high standard .22 Victor
    Its so nice I shot it a few times but want to keep it in great conditon. I guess if I could find more mags for $30 Id shoot it a lot more. Since some parts and barrels are to be had online.

    Hey those aren't rusty!!

    Mine would have to be a 12G savage 420 O/U that has been on the project list for quite awhile. I've shot it, but the action pops open when firing the top barrel. It's a cool dual trigger shottie that will get safely working again....someday. :rolleyes:

    I inherited a Jennings .25acp, circa 1985. My relative did some "gunsmithing" on it, making an bad situation worse.

    It was dangerously undependable. The only reliable defense it provided was if you unloaded it and threw it at your attacker.
