I have been an avid handgunner for a while now, but am now looking to get a nice all around practical long gun. I'm looking for something that can do everything and just be a multi purpose tool for me. I have considered lever actions for their rapid reloading and light weight...shotguns for rapid reload capability, diversity with rifled barrel interchangeability, and power...and bolt actions for accuracy. Also considered semi auto's such as AR's. I attended Jeff Cooper's Gunsite back in the early 90's and remembered him talking and writing about the perfect all round multi purpose long gun design. Savage makes this gun (although he did prefer the Krag bolt action design) with the forward pistol scope mount and all. Here is the link http://www.savagearms.com/10fcmscout.htm I'm seriously considering this as my first long gun. It looks like it takes a box mag also, so it is possible I could use higher capacity magazines than what it comes with (4 rounds)...unless nobody makes em', in which case I would be stuck with multiple 4 rounder's. Anyone know if I can get 10 or 20 round mags for these? Is this a good choice, or should I be considering something else?
