that is so true... You need bigger caliber guns to take them zombies on.

If your worried about your neighbors you can get a keltec sub 2000.

Since it folds in half it fits in bags and cases that don't look like they hold rifles.
Take 30 round glock mags.
The Mags are interchangeable with Glock pistols.
Hide well in the house for home defense.
Only cost $300 and are accurate and fun to shoot.

If appearances are your concern maybe this?

i think the lever action suggestion is a great one.

if you want a semi-auto with more power than a 22, the mini 14 is your only real option in a lightweight carbine. and they are made with friendly wood stocks..heck, they are even sold at wal-mart.

This a "budget" rifle though. the mini-14 (love it and have it) isn't really a bargain deal these days. We're trying to to keep this under 400. A lever is a good option still though

about $620 at wal-mart for a standard mini 14. still well under the average price of an AR retail, though i admit, still not really cheap by any means. the only other semi auto, non evil looking guns are the M1 carbine (1000+), M1A (1500), and garand (1000+). all of those are FINE guns but way pricey when new. i think the kel-tec is still pretty "evil" loooking myself (as well as ugly imo). but that sub 2000 is pretty appealing at $300.

for semi auto within a budget, mini is about the only decently priced rifle that won't look like an assault rifle. get a wood stock with a a 5 round mag & it just looks like a standard deer rifle to the firearm uneducated.

but i'm with you, i think the lever gun is the best option. i LOVE my marlin 336. just as fun to shoot as a semi auto imo, and way better looking & less "evil." lever guns are definately enough to protect the ol homestead.
