Re: ONE GUN

S1 you bring up a very good point about magazine capacity, hadn't thought about that.

Tim another good point about survival quick to point and shoot.

Thinking about these extra point makes me wish for a gun along the lines of a Gibbs QuestII but, would have it rechambered so say a 358 win or 350 rem mag if it was possible.

Flick wasn't doubting that you have a 2 y.o. its that I haven't seen too many of them shoot a rifle [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]. Better to buy it now before the laws change.

Re: ONE GUN

To use the criteria that Tim put forth, 'ie. if I screwed up' kind of a survivalist type of deal. I would go with the .308 winchester or the 7.62x39 ie the old soviet bloc round. I would chamber it in an AK frame or for the .308 an HK frame. Never have to worry about ammo availability or parts for the rifle and they hardly ever stop running. Might not be a long range weapon, but it is one I would stake my life on.

Re: ONE GUN

We all stake our way of life on the Eugene Stoner design. It works in arctic, desert, and jungle terrain: If it does not, we are all in a lot of trouble. Just want mine in a 300 WSM! "Urban warfare" you say, 125 Nosler and Benchmark, NO FLASH! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: ONE GUN

I think my Sendero in 300 Win Mag would work for me.

Re: ONE GUN

223 Rem. Can carry twice as many rounds (use less powder) as those mag rounds and with a well placed shot there would be deer meat on the table!

Re: ONE GUN

Flick, I'm very sorry [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] to hear about your father. My bud at work just lost his mother Tuesday from cancer after he went to New York last week to see her. So yes I feel for you. Knowing first hand how that feels I lost my grandmother in a house fire shortly after I got out of the military as a firefighter, so I can feel for you and your family.

I know that shot placement is the key and guess that if you put enough bullets into a grizzly he should go down or go mad [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img].
So I guess the conccenus is that from a survilalist point of view a 223, realist 308 and life or limb 300 to 416?

How about it DC,Len,Chris,and Ian any thought from you all on this. Sorry Boyd didn't mean to leave you out either.
