If you don't have immediate plans on building a rifle, buy a couple of good used factory rifles, and get the "feel" of them.

Get different brands, and in a couple of years, trade them for other brands.

After a while, you'll know from personal experience exactly what you want.
History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
Douglas MacArthur

If you think a strong military is expensive, think about what a weak one would cost

Agree with above.As much as I love our Savages for the daily grind of hunting,and certain engineering....they sure ain't gonna win any beauty contest's.

What qualities one person requires or desires....may be way down the next guy's check list.Handling guns in a store is great,but its only after you've "lived" with it that you learn to fully appreciate its good points and notso good points.
