Re: I can not decide which one I don't need anymore, offer your opinion?

I'm kind of in Broz's camp----finally realized that hunting was my passion and sold a few to upgrade my hunting equipment to the best. ALTHOUGH, i now regret selling a few of those nasty semi autos......I still wished i woulda kept that HK 91 and 93...............oh well.

BUT, whatever you decide, get that ruger GSR.......amazing rifle and very accuracte.
Once I saw that they made them in left handed, I was first to get one. It goes everywhere with me and it is always on the back of my farm 4wheeler. Performs very well on rattlesnakes................

I mainly shoot the federal gold match 168 grain sierra because I have an ample supply of that cartridge. I've tried a couple of different sight options on it and they all work great but I just went back to irons. I did have a trigger installed and had it bedded----it shoots between half inch and 3/4 with the 168 grain. Funny thing, you can still get magazines for it because I think it is "only" a bolt gun.
But, in all seriousness, I love the damn thing. It is a really really good rifle.

Very good advise Broz... every time I think I want a new gun I make sure to take the time to evaluate where in my safe it will "rank"... do I already own a similar/competitive caliber etc...

As for "The man with one gun..." that's usually me, my dad is the opposite and yes I usually win when we play Long Range "Golf"

Re: I can not decide which one I don't need anymore, offer your opinion?

I am in the same camp with one caveat: it took so long to weed out the inferior semi-autos that I can not bring myself to sell the refined group I kept even though I never shoot em anymore. I fight the temptation about once a month to trade em off for optics,barrels or loading components for the bolt guns.
All said and done I really only need two handguns: 22lr+sup/45carry two rifles: 1 pelt saving rifle/ 338 edge for everything else maybe a shotgun for the sake of argument. Everything els is kind of redundant. Sell the extra 300 for sure.
