I am completely torn about which new toy I'm buying next. I want a rugged, reliable, rifle that will be my best friend in a shtf scenario. I'd like something with a minimum effective range of 200-500 yds, semi auto or bolt action. My budget for the rifle alone (no ammo or mags) is no more than $350. I really want an AK or SKS but the prices have shot up far. Can anyone end my mental debate??? Note: I've been looking at 91/30's, SMLE's, WASR AK's, and Saigas. Not necessarily what I'll choose. I'm also pretty biased against Century Arms, don't ask me why.
