MG3 7.62mm machinegun. The firing rate is just so sweet for something thats man portable. 17-23 rounds per second, depending on ammo temperature

The HK GMG automatic grenade launcher is also tons of fun, similar to the Mk-19 I would guess.

But another one that always gets me smiling is the Carl Gustav M2/M3 recoilless rifle. What a blast...literally!
Actually, come to think of it...it's even more fun being the loader when firing prone, since normal personnel placement puts your nose pretty much 10-20 cm from the venturi nozzle at the rear...pretty cool with approx 1 lb of propellant going off next to your face

Ah focal_point now I understand and your right comming from the generation that has the reflex sites. The sterling is like a metal tube with a sight welded on it. I'd like to see
something welded to the rear sight were you could add a red dot.

LOL! Well, my inability to gain/maintain an acceptable sight picture on that Sterling had nothing to do with the weapon's quality/reliability or usefulness, really. My point was that my body armor with all the mags and crap stuck to the front of it, the neck guard, the helmet, the eye pro, etc., had interfered. (Not to mention the sweat raining down my face!) Yeah, it really has nothing to with iron sights or a reflex optic. I actually prefer iron sights! Though the M68 on top of my M4 was quite handy!

...and, now that you mention it, a Sterling with a nice reflex mounted would be kinda fun!

Dude! The first time I squeezed (... I guess PRESSED would be more accurate ...) the butterfly on a Mk19, it was AWESOME! I had a whole can of surplus service rounds. I love the sound of the recoil... the pop... the pause... (you can follow that itty-bitty black dot as it soars toward the target... then BLAMMMMM! Adjust your BOT and let her rip! Chuck out about three or four more rounds... MAN was that FUN! Nothing like the sound of a high explosive round detonating on an armored hull!

Shot an HK MP5 that was a real hoot but the most fun was a suppressed Sterling SMG, so quiet we didn't wear hearing protection all you could hear was the slugs hitting the backdrop on the range we were at.

Ruger Blackhawk in 44mag. The owner was an older gentleman who was frineds with my older neighbor. He let me shoot it with low power and hot handloads. With low power loads that gun was sweet and smooth. Also in the looks dept, gloss black with white cream grips.

The M2 HB was always fun, but nothing compares to being able to shoulder your automatic weapon. Mine was the M249 SAW.....

My son likes the M240 and has chased many a Tallyban (miss spelled on purpose) with one. I myself have the most fun with lever guns in pistol calibers at metal targets.

The funnest gun I've shot has to be either the M240B or the M2. Both are reliable, and they dish out some serious damage. The M249 SAW is not bad. Some have some serious jamming issues, and the shorter barrel ones have severe accuracy issues. In fairness, the SB versions were made for urban combat. So, I could not knock them for accuracy. When I was a medic with the infantry, I enjoyed when I got to shoot other weapons than my M4.
On the civilian market, I would say that my CMP M1 Garand makes me smile more than any other firearm I own. Just my opinion tho.

for me.. we had a Tiger cruise on the USS Momsen DDG 92 (where the sailors can have family members onboard for the final part of the ship's deployment), sailing from Hawaii back to Everett.. fired every gun on the ship, from the 5" 62 caliber main gun, 25mm Bushmaster Chain Guns, twin and single 50's, M-19 grenade launcher, M-79 grenade launcher, M-240, M-16's and M-9's.. (it did help that I was in weapons department, so the guns belonged to my guys)..

as far as civilian, when I was about 6 or 7, a buddy of my dad's had a M-60 loaded with tracers and we went out at night shooting it in a logged over clearing..

currently, my Remington 700 BDL in 375 Ultra Mag..

Military it would be my M1 Garand. As a civilian although I shoot it the least I have more chuckles and giggles with when I do shoot it and that would be my H*R single shot break action 10 gauge. It should be illegal to have so much fun shooting that gun.

As odd as this may seem, I get the most enjoyment out of my M91/30 and a pile of bricks.. or my Winchester 1300 on the 5 lane. I've never had a chance to shoot full auto or anything crazy though.

Russian rifles ROCK. I love my AK47's. I love my SKS's. But there is a love I have for the Mosin Nagant that is inexplicable. There is something about that rifle that begs respect and admiration for the brilliance of design, taking into account the time of its conception. You cannot have more fun for the money, and you are aware that you are shooting a LEGEND. I have 91/30's ... a fleet of them. I have two M44's. A 91/59. A Finnish M39. Three hex receivers, one being from 1899. I love them all.

I would have to say the M240B followed closely by my Socom 16

Or the MP5K suppressed or MG3/MG42 that I shot while in Pakistan

About ten years ago I went shooting with an acquaintance and one of his friends, who happened to be an FBI agent. He brought along a full auto MP5, and a 3-rd burst M16.

I would say those are notable mentions, but for most fun shock and awe it would have to be my old Sako in 30-378 Weatherby. I had a hot load of 180gr Barnes X that moseyed along at a mediocre 3450fps

The custom pad on the stock made it enjoyable to shoot. And everyone I let take a few shots always left with a smile on their face. Firing it into a group of filled cans or milk jugs just made a huge mess. I'd infrequently stretch it's legs and shoot it out to about 800 yards or so. The biggest downside was the ridiculous cost for ammunition, even reloading it you were looking at an exhorbitant amount of powder.

Nowadays I've mellowed. I probably enjoy my .357's nearly as much. Especially if I get out into the desert and shoot at longer ranges. I'm not good at it, but it's fun practice.

The firearm I have the most fun shooting is a Ruger #1 in .500 Nitro Express. Its a simple and elegant rifle that launches a great big bullet downrange with a level of recoil that is exciting yet tolerable. Its fun loading the big ol' cartridge in the single shot action and extracting a smokin' empty brings a smile to the face.

Now... where's those damned tigers?!
