Hello all, So in a recent thread I asked about a Taurus revolver and the results of that thread have made me step back and re-evaluate my choice of firearms in general. I've been out of the hobby for about 20 years so I'm a tad rusty. I grew up hunting using an old bolt action .22 and a break open single shot 20 gauge as a kid. In the Army I was trained on the M9 and M16A2, but issued a 1911. While working security I carried a 1911 as well. I have a fondness for the weapon. Now I'm looking for a rifle that can be used for double duty for defense and hunting, and a pair of pistols, one for conceal carry and one for the wife to use for home defense. Ideally, they would all use the same ammunition and my wifes pistol must be a revolver. I am open to any and all suggestions.
