    There was an event today that has me rethinking the lever action 30-30 as a SHTF survival rifle. While at the local sandpit sending some rounds downrange my Marlin 336 in 30-30 had a double feed. To resolve the issue the lever had to be removed - with a screw driver and punch pin. The rounds...

    I have a friend who just recently came out as a wannabe survivalist LOL He want's to buy a rifle, he already owns a handgun and shotgun. I took him to the range and let him shoot every one of my rifles, and he has decided that he wants an AR15. I tried to push him towards a Remington 700 in...

    A local pawn shop has a Remington Model 788 in 308 winchester for around $500. Is a Remington Model 788 worth $500, or should I make the guy a lower offer? The magazines on the Model 788 rattles something terrible. Another pawn shop in Newton Texas has a Remington 700 for $500. I offered the...

    I traded my tricked out Remington 700 for a PTR-91 GI model. I've wanted an HK-91 since childhood, so this is a long time dream. I've ordered 15 mags, two mag pouches, and a cleaning kit from Cheaper than Dirt, a sling from Robert RTG, and a case of Tula .308 from Grab a Gun. I'll report back...

    Once upon a time I was a little boy that had the great pleasure to go plinking with his dad out in the woods. Working at a BSA camp in the summer I found target shooting and when I joined the army they taught me the joy that is suppressive fire. Now I am back in civilian life and have my old...

    I'am looking for a 308 semi-auto rifle - recommend some good ones below the $800 price range. After doing some internet searches, I came across the Cetme 308. If anyone here has a Cetme 308, please post your experiences. Several years ago I owned an H&K SP89, so the safety and charging of the...

    Wife and I went to a pawn shop and spotted 2 Remington VTR rifles. I nabbed the .308 rifle for $600.00. It has been shot just a little bit, maybe 50 rounds. It is in immaculate condition. I left the .223 version behind for somebody else to buy. It came with a 3 by 9 Hawke scope mounted on it...

    So i've narrowed my hunting rifle down to two guns in two different calibers. This will be the weapon that puts meat on the table and defense in a pinch. Wife already has a cricket for smaller game.

    What would you consider as the best sniper rifle. Use hunting and SHTF No large bore like 50 cal. (put your monet towards ammo) Priced right that does not break the bank US made, but if it is a good deal for the money go for it Ammo easy to buy and you can reload Max range 1000 yards...

    I'm leaning toward a Remington 700 in .308 but am wondering if I should look at something in 7.62? I have most of my ammo in this caliber and a couple boxes in .308. I don't want to cause unnecessary stress in a rifle by putting too hot a load in. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Lately, I've been racking my brain trying to figure out which would be better for my situation: an SKS or Rem 700 in .308 More than likely, I will be spending most of my time between rural and suburban-like enviornments. I will need my rifle to hunt, but also to defend myself. any ideas?
