I shoot LH so the Scout was available in LH and with the 16 inch bbl (18 with the flash hider attached) it makes good sense in the 'thick' stuff here in Bama. The Scout has three magazines available (I have all three) 10 rd, 5 rd, and 3 rd.
If you don't want to spend that much the American would be a good choice.

If you look around you can find a used BAR for $600. No, it won't be made in Belgium but it will be more accurate than you are. If you hunt in the woods and quick follow up shots are required the BAR is hard to beat. If you hunt fields and every shot you get is an animal standing there like a target dummy get a savage.
