Remington 710 in 30-06. Bought it while I was in college, not knowing much better and not having enough money to do anything different. It shot okay and I killed several deer and two elk with it. But the bolt would sometimes pull all the way out when cycling and it had its other faults. Replaced with a stainless Tikka in 300wm and have been happy ever since.
Lol, I still have one . Only shot less than a box. Sighted it in, shots an ok group. I bought it to bring as a back up gun to camp in case I ever needed it if I dropped mine on scope or something. It was and is cheap. Only paid $225. Keep thining I will put a better scope on it and throw it in my truck to have it there. But lets give Remington credit, it started the cheap gun thing. Now everyone does it way better.

I bought an AR-15 upper from a buddy and built a heavy-barrel target rifle out of it, it was fun to put it all together but I sold it after it sat unfired in my safe for almost 2 years. The Elite bow I bought with the money from selling the rifle is a far more interesting piece of equipment....

Marlin 336 Guide gun in .450 Marlin. Always fascinated by the big bores and being able to make bowling pins tumble end over end, but this thing would not eject and was very painful to shoot because of the small lever coming back into my fingers with the recoil. Learned to shoot it with my hand wrapped around the outside of the lever. Somebody else's problem now though...

BK-92 Knight muzzleloader. I tried everything and anything to get it to shoot consistently. Really soured me on the whole muzzleloader thing.
