Default Need help

I'd like any and all opinions on choosing my next firearm. I already own a Marlin 39A lever gun in .22lr, Winchester 120 pump in 12 ga., SCCY CPX-2 in 9mm, and a Heritage Rough Rider revolver in .22lr. I'm re-building my collection so I need every one of these choices. My choices are: Ruger 10/22 w/birch stock, Rossi matched pair w/.22 and .410 barrels, Mossberg 100 ATR in .308 or .30/06, or EAA Windicator revolver in .357.

In those choices I would get the Mossberg in 308 so I could deer hunt.

Thanks for your input! I'm not much of a hunter though. I only go out once every few years or so. That's why I'm looking for a cheaper rifle in bigger game caliber. I used to hunt a lot of pigs growing up and I'd like to get back into it. Oh, also, GO GATORS!!

My opinion:

Low Budget...
Long Range- Mossberg or Savage .308/30- 06(Depend on you) or a Ruger 10/22
Semi Rifle- Ak-47 Or Ar-15
Pistol-Rossi .357 Magnum Revolver,Taurus PT 24/7,Eaa Wind something i forgot in, is a revover also.

High Budget..
Long Range-Savage 111Lr Hunter .300 Win Mag,Savage 110Ba .300 Win Mag or .338 Lapua.
Semi Rifle-Same as Above(Ak-47 or Ar-15)
Pistol-Same as above or A 1911.

Remember this list is my opinion, you can do difference.

Also, regarding the Mossberg 100 ATR, I'm trying to decide on .308 or .30-06. I have plenty of experience with both the .308 from my military days and the .30-06 from my high school days. I'm looking for a good all around caliber for home defense, pig and deer hunting, poking holes in paper and camping/canoeing trips.

No, college. Was in the Marine Corps a few years ago and now I'm trying to educate myself. Got about 3 semesters to go for my B.S. of Biology degree.

I have an ATR in .308. So far I gotta say it's a whole lotta fun for not a whole lotta money.
