Hi, I've recently been looking for a new gun. I think I’ve about narrowed it down to two choices. Either something bolt action around a .308 caliber such as a Savage, Remington, Marlin, etc. or a semi-auto pistol caliber carbine such as a Hi-Point, Kel-Tec, Beretta, etc. The bolt action would be nice because of the range as well as its ability to hunt but that doesn’t completely rule out the pistol carbine for me basically just because I think they’re cool. What I’d like to know is what’s your opinion on which one my money would be better spent on? Like I said being able to hunt gives the bolt action a slight edge but what it comes down to for me is having fun. Either gun I choose will be seeing far more range time than hunting, (as if the carbine could hunt anything worthwhile lol) about 90% of the shots fired will be at a range. I am on a budget but I’m open to all suggestions. And if anyone has a suggestion as to another type of gun that may be more fun than either of these two I’d love to hear it, just remember I’m not rich by any means Thanks to all who reply in advance. I appreciate the help!
