> News > 50 Best Guns

Note: This listing was featured in a Field & Stream cover article by David Petzal. Please note this excerpt from Mr. Petzal's article: "You'll notice that there are no military or target arms here (with a few exceptions, for reasons explained). We decided to limit the list to hunting firearms, which is what F&S is about. In making my selection, I've limited myself to the past 100 years or so, going back to the introduction of smokeless powder, so these are guns of the modern era. In many ways, firearms have changed very little over the past century. That doesn't mean they haven't progressed; it means they were pretty good to begin with-and these are the best.
