As with most everything else in my life, I can't seem to choose a favorite category of rifle to collect. Most collectors spend a lifetime tracking down every possible variation of back sight used on left handed Winchesters manufactured between 1956 and '58. I can't be bothered. "Hey, that looks cool." is good enough for me. Other than a love of rusting wood and rotting metal guns (as a friend describes them), there's not much coherence to my collection. Of course, wood and metal are out the door if you want a Kalashnikov, or an AR-15, or an FAL... If eberybody had an AK, we would all be a lot nicer to each other.
