I am thinking about adding a rifle to my collection and I am looking for some help to point me in the right direction. I am looking for something big enough to take down what I point it at ( read bad guy ), easy to maintain, easy and affordable to get ammo, something the wife and daughter can shoot well also. The choices out there are mind boggling for me at least, so I am looking for some solid pointers on this as I am not sure what I want or need. Initial cost is secondary to me, the wife will disagree I'm sure. It must be 100% reliable and not so fancy that it confuses the wife and daughter because they will have to learn with me how to clean it and make repairs on it if needed, in case I'm no longer able. They are competent with all of the pistols that I own so this is the next step for all of us.
