    What gun most resembles the TW?

    Rules:

    1) Identify the gun accurately so everyone knows what you are talking about.

    2) Give your reasons for the comparison.

    My choice:

    Smith and Wesson Model 34 "Kit Gun", .22 long rifle caliber, 2" bbl.

    Why-

    It's small
    It's under-powered
    It has classic styling
    It is eminently reliable
    It can handle harsh conditions on a regular basis.
    It's easy to maintain
    It's inexpensive to operate
    It holds it's value well
    You can always find a good used one if you are willing to work a bit
    Kids have as much fun with them as adults
    It isn't going to impress anyone
    Twelve rules will get you through life with style.

    Original S&W chief (Model 36)

    For the same reasons as the OP but TW is at least a .38 equivalent (a .22 is a Moped IMO)

    Everyone should have one.

    Colt 1911 .45 acp It's a little oversized for what it is, it's unique in that it isn't made specifically for any one type of job, but gets the job done. Its design hasn't been changed hardly at all since it was invented.

    I agree with this. Also, they are both uncomfortable to sit on for long periods of time.

    Flintlock Pistol

    Why

    Smaller than the rifle
    Been around a long time
    Easy to maintain and operate (should be anyway)
    Slow
    Get made fun of (when you show up in camp)
    It's a single
    Some consider it ancient
    And come on...it's a classic!

    Mossberg 500 12 gauge.

    Cheap, quirky, but dependable as a rock.

    Will kill anything on the planet if you do your part.

    Although it is hard to argue with versatility and mods available for trusty 10/22.

    I like my 1962 marlin 30-30,it's a clunky antiquated lead lobber, but it is built like a tank and is a trusted friend.

    Small, cute, Square lines with rounded edges. You can hurt yourself or someone else with it, but one wont necessarily die from it.
