Mosin Nagant! It's hella cheap and so is the ammo. Its a blast to shoot and it reaches out pretty well. Plus if you ever get cold out in the woods you can just burn the stock and only be out like 100 bucks. Haha.

You can also use the muzzle flash to cook dinner and toast a few 'smores.

Lol I WAS looking into these as well.. I heard that it kicks like a mule though. And why does it seem like the Russian government has a surplus contract with Big 5 for this model?? Hahah

It's no .22lr or .223 but the recoil is overrated...no more than a 30-06. The 91/30 is a big rifle and the weight dampens some of the kick. Russian girls have managed to shoot them for 100 year now.

What kind of distance do you want to shoot the gun?
What kind of distance does your range offer?
What kind of game do you want to hunt? If any with this rifle.

So I would really like to shoot from a couple hundred yards out, but substituting my dreams for reality I think 100 -200 yards would be very sufficient for my realistic needs. I believe that 200 yards is also the longest rifle range I've seen that's relatively close to my area.

I find that target shooting out to 300 yards most rifle calibers are good. I also find, for ultimate accuracy and precision shooting, a bolt gun is the way to go. A semi auto is a good thing to have but it's not going to give you the precision a bolt gun can.

Dicks sporting goods was selling Ruger American rifles, bolt action with adjustable trigger in 30.06 this week for $319.00. I looked it over real good and If I did not already have one I would have bought one. My buddy did, and it shoots real accurate. You can not go wrong with that price. They had them in other cal. also.

They are call "American Rifles" because they are made right here in the US of A!!

I have a Marlin X7 and highly recommend them. Mine is chambered in .308 Winchester but they come in the following other calibers as well:

25-06 Remington
270 Winchester
30-06 Springfield
7mm-.08
243 Winchester

I was leaning towards a bolt action .308/ 30-06 I've always dreamed of hearing that loud satisfying ping while being prone a couple 100 yards away if you know what I mean. So I decided to ask you guys. I already have myself an SR40 and mossberg 500 so I'm looking for an nice addition. If I I'd go assault rifle I'd probably like an m1a socom, bolt action mossberg atr 100 night train. Any input greatly appreciated!
Unless you need full auto get a bolt gun!!!!
Beside that the wait for the BTFE to process your app for full auto is quit long!
