I would immediately add the following:
- Savage 99 - maybe in .243 or 250 Savage
- Winchester 88 - maybe 308

Later, add:
- Browning BLR - maybe 30-06
- Marlin 1895 - 45/70

I immediately thought of the savage 99 when I saw your photograph of your collection maybe in a caliber that's easy to get, unless of course if you're reloader.

But then you wrote that you were 19, so I must say your collection is outstanding.
I think at your age I only had a Ruger 1022 and was saving up for a Mossberg pump shotgun model 500.

Get your SEMI autos NOW. You will be able to buy a lever action after 2017. I can't say the same for a semi auto.

Well I guess the only semi automatic I have is my beloved M1A, and my beloved mini 14, and my colt 6920. My favorite lever action there is that uberti 1873 in 357

The Savage 99's are not only a great rifle but a even greater value...or should I say the tend to be undervalued. Seems to me when they show up here...they are typically asking about $350 - $450.

For a new lever gun try the new Henry Big Boy Steel H012M41 (41MAG), new this year.

Very nice collection. If you want to add a lever-action go with the marlin 1875 in 45-70. It's a sweet rifle and you can hunt dinosaurs with it.

You need an old Winchester 30-30 something pre WWII. Always wanted to add a 44 mag 16" lever to my collection - but not one with that ugly cross bolt safety Winchester's attorneys made them install.

I agree with the opinion that you need a Savage 99. Unless you just need to round out a collection, I like them better than the BLR.
Look around for a Marlin Levermatic in 22 mag.
A big bore would be nice too. 45-70 ammo is usually a little cheaper and more variety, but I really love my 444 Marlin.

Get a Winchester 9422 in 22lr. You can shoot it all day long. They are high quality and have been going up in value.

I know it's all about personal preferences. Like I said earlier, unless he's rounding out a collection, I wouldn't downgrade to a 9422 with a Marlin 39a sitting in my cabinet.

Probably not bought new from an FFL but handed down from Dad, which is perfectly legal. Happy Fathers Day.

Fewer people are killed with all rifles each year (323 in 2011) than with shotguns (356), hammers and clubs (496), and hands and feet (728).
