3. AK47 reliable, reliable, reliable.
4. A lever-action .45-70 There are many very good brands… Pick one that fits you.
5. M1A SOCOM 16 (wishlist)
6. Ruger Single-Six .22 (had one, never should of sold it.

– MICHAEL, in response to 10 Guns Worth Keeping

“Your job as sharpshooter or sniper is to protect your crew and innocent civilians by stopping the threat IMMEDIATELY! That means in most cases, you’ll only get one shot on a hot target, so make it count. It should be precise and instantly lethal. Whatever you need to do in that role to get the most accurate tool to accomplish this is vital. Spend whatever it takes on the most accurate SHOOTER, WEAPON, GLASS, AMMO, and TRAINING!!!”

– TROY, in response to How Accurate Is Too Accurate?

“Polymer stocks are a regular feature anymore. My first was a Remington Nylon 66, that my folks bought for me in the early 70’s. Great little rifle. Unfortunately, it was lost in a house fire 7 years ago. I like the fact that even cheap guns are more magazine than tube-fed these days. That’s definitely a convenience. Great review.”

– CHUCK, in response to Review: Mossberg Blaze .22
