    How many AR-15s, AK47s, FALs... are enough? The title of the thread is battle rifles. Lets skip the semantics and splitting hairs and group all semi-automatic medium and large rifle calibers together. If it was designed for a military role since the 1940s, how many are enough? The issue...

    Local gun store has a Ruger American Rifle in 308 Winchester for something like $450. I do not remember the "exact" price, but it was somewhere in that price range. Camo stock Scope mounts No scope. I am thinking about putting a rifle on lay away for an early christmas present to myself. I...

    Given up on the 223, the lack of power, the wind blowing rounds way off coarse. Gone to the to the 308 platform and slaps down crap out to 800 never looked back since. The AR 15 seems like a kids toy to me now, not saying this to start a poo fight. It's just that the 308 thumps everything at...

    Thinking about getting a PTR91 GI model, what are your thoughts? Owners of a PTR91, what common mods have you done? Should I spend another $300-$400 and just get an AR10? Or should I spend another $600-$700 and buy a Springfield M1A? Or is the PTR91 a good rifle for the money?

    This is an opinion piece on the 300 Blackout. A couple of days ago I posted a question about Palmetto State Armory on the survivalistboards facebook page. There were several suggestions to go with the 300 blackout instead of the 223/5.56mm. This is my reply to those suggestions...

    So, with doomsday just around the corner I've been looking for an appropriate rifle. I've hunted with a bolt action .308 since age 12 and already have a decent stock of ammo and reloading supplies. I like what I see in the PTR-91 with a 16 inch barrel. Never shot one but I hear the recoil is...

    :D:http://centerfiresystems.com/AKAGUN-VEPR-54R.aspx This is a brand spanking new product improved Russian Dragunov. These are quite probably superior in accuracy to the original military issue dragunov. These are 7.62x54 guys!:D:

    Ok this is my first rifle, I want an all around multi purpose.. I am thinking of springfield squad scout or ar style 7.62. I just want a rifle that will be a combat defensive weapon as well as a weapon that I could use to knock down a deer if needed. I would like to hear from people who have...

    My question is certainly one that's been asked before, however the search function is weak and I didn't find it by flipping back a page or two. So bear with me... What is an inexpensive, legitimate option for a MBR(main battle rifle) that is NOT an AR? At this point in my life a 1300 dollar...

    Recently I asked the people on the SurvivalistBoards facebook page what rifle calibers they hunt with. I made sure to specify what calibers they currently own and use, and not what calibers they plan on buying. The purpose of the question was to generate a survey of calibers that people are...

    If your ONLY two choices for a personal AR/MBR (gotta cover your bases for the nit-pickers) were the Armalite AR-10 16" Carbine or the PTR91 Squad Carbine 16" which would you choose and what would be your decision factors?

    Hunting season is here, and I have been thinking about my firearm setup. How many people have more then 1 rifle per caliber? What is the point of stockpiling ammo, and then have 1 rifle that could break? Sure people have spare parts, but spare parts do not help your buddies hunt with you. Part...

    Ok, so for the past few years my MBR has been a converted saiga 7.62x39. Which in it's own right isn't a bad thing at all. I love AK's. The design just works. All be it a some what stolen design. I am pretty hardcore into weapons history. So seeing where all modern select fire magazine fed...

    I'm currently trying to decide on a MBR. Initially .308 was the only caliber I considered, and from there it was the typical M1A, FAL, PTR, Saiga debate. Now I'm backtracking a bit and wondering if 7.62x54R might offer some more options. My initial budget is limited to $1000, and I had been...

    Last weekend I was at a buddies house, and we were talking about stockpiling 223, 7.62x39, 308,,,,, various types of ammunition. I told my buddy that I was stockpiling Monarch 223 and Monarch 7.62x39 from academy sports and outdoors. Its steel cased ammo, but it only cost $4.89 for a box of...

    Hello, I am new to being a survivalist but not new to owning guns. I've grown up around them and am very familiar with their usage. However my family never did store large quantities of ammo until recently. I own a 12 gauge Mossberg Maverick 88 and have now stockpiled over 500 rounds in...
