    This summer, I will be buying my first shotgun (I'm 16). I think I'm getting a Maverick 88 12GA pump. Is this a good choice? I'm on a budget, and the Remington 870 and Mossberg 500 seemed a little pricy. I know the Maverick is a simplified 500 with Mexican parts. I was wondering if anyone had...

    I'm talking about the bone stock plain base model Ruger 10/22 and the bone stock plain base model Remington 597. Where I am the Ruger is easily $60+ more than the Remington. Is there that much of a difference in quality? Anybody have major problems with a Remington 597?

    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 purchased a Remington 870 Express (not Wingmaster) about 3 years ago. It's been fine. I have no complaints, but have been reading about the numerous problems that have been showing up on later models. I was planning on buying another 870 (redundancy) but now I'm having second thoughts...

    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...

    I was wondering if anyone has taken a look at the barrel of these two rifles. I would like to know if they are stamped for .223/.308 or are stamped for their Nato cousins? I just want to know if the are Nato safe to shoot. I have heard that you go by the barrel stamp and not necessarily the...

    One of the most asked questions I see on the forum - "what is the best survival rifle?" A well balanced answer is, there is no perfect rifle. If you live in Alaska, your rifle needs are going to be a lot different then someone that lives in the Southern states. Its doubtful someone living in...

    Ok, I am giving this rifle a very serious look. I have held it in the gun shop and I love the feel of it. Light, well made, etc. But I am having serious issues trying to decide what caliber to buy the rifle in. It will be used for hunting and ranged shooting to 400 yards and really no more. It...

    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 am looking to get a semiautomatic Deer Hunting Rifle that can also be used as a survival weapon. My current bolt action is a Savage in 30.06 and I have a comfortable supply of 30.06 ammunition. I am not looking to debate 30.06 vs .308, just looking for semiauto options in 30.06. I already have...
