    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...

    I have recently purchased a AK-74. Imported from Romania and reworked by M+M LLC. I know next to nothing about this rifle. It was in good shape. Though to be frank, the guy who sold it to me had no clue how to clean it as the rust in th egas tube attested to. I have cleaned the crap out of...

    Well, since the dark days of 1988 when center-fire semi-auto rifles were restricted the elusive FN FAL was out of reach, no longer! Look what Watch Ryder buzzed in from the nearby FFL: SA 58 FN FAL! The Right Arm of the Free World descends, one of the Kings of the Battle Rifle calibers...

    I live in Australia and due to gun laws here i'm not permitted to own a semi-automatic rifle as i'm not a primary producer. I've decided to go for a lever action rifle as an all purpose gun. What i intend to use the rifle for is club target shooting and feral animal hunting (rabbits, foxes...

    Just moved out of my parents house after graduating college, looking to invest in a battle rifle before I enlist as an officer in the marine corps. These are the ones I have looked at just wondering if anyone can share their experience. I have enough money to buy any of them but obviously the...

    Some kind of new disease has broke out, society has collapsed and no more trucks are rolling. Over the following weeks the power goes out, the water stops running, people stop driving their cars and trucks, friends, neighbors and strangers come around begging for food. The food preps are...

    So my two year anniversary with my girlfriend is coming up and we decided to focus on material gifts this year. We set a $200-400 price range and she's been asking what I want. SO.... -Savage Axis 30-06 rifle (debate encouraged as I don't know enough about their quality) -ESEE 6 -Cold Steel...

    I am fortunate enough to get some overtime this week and use 100% of it on prepping. I would like recommendations on the following scenarios that I came up with for purchasing preps. Facts: I do not own any rifles but have several handguns. I do not have any resources for acquiring water except...

    I'm looking into purchasing my first bolt action(besides my .22lr). I want to use it as a defensive gun to immobilize vehicles that try to come onto my land in a shtf situation also a using as a hunting rifle also. I have about a $500 dollar limit to spend on the gun and a scope. I would like to...

    Hi, I have a couple 556's but have been questioning it as a viable go to gun since I never ever see it mentioned in any threads. What do you folks think about it as a go to option. Mine have never malfunctioned but then again I'm not in a survival situation and baby the heck out of all my...

    When i was younger i was in a truck accident that left my right eye severely impaired, and since then i have unfortunately not been around firearms very much. I am wanting to possibly get a rifle for home defense as well as for a SHTF scenario. I am right handed, but left eye dominant. Any...

    I have been thinking about designing a light weight, bolt action rifle for wilderness survival. Something to take backpacking, store in car, etc. maybe store survival kit in stock. I have a few other ideas to add but I dont want to give it all way

    Well, after many months of thinking/planning and selling stuff, I finally got an Arsenal SGL21 (NY Compliant) in 7.62x39. Got it, of course, from Arsenal's US distributor, K-Var Corporation. it was shipped to my local FFL dealer with a 5-round mag. Did my NICS check, and off I was. (for a bit...

    I have read two different schools of thought as far as aquiring & maintaining a SHTF stock. I have a pretty basic arsenal, but it suits my situation. The standard 22lr,12 guage,a simple & durable defensive/hunting rifle(sks) & 3 handguns in .45ACP,10mm & .380ACP. My question is would it be...

    Tell me what you think, and be honest. I am thinking about getting it for myself as a christmas present. http://www.dsarms.com/AR-1R-Flattop-Carbine-Rifle-556-Nato---DSZM4CV1R/productinfo/DSZM4CV1RCL/ If you know of a better AR in the same price range, please make a suggestion. Keep in mind...

    Someone suggest a good quality red dot scope for a DS Arms SA58 FN/FAL, which is intended to be a long term SHTF survival rifle. Price is a factor here, so lets say something less then $200. The scope has to be weather proof, so that when I am deer hunting in adverse weather I dont have to...

    I've been thinking about picking up a "vintage" bolt action for relatively cheap. The ones available and within my price range (no more than $400.00) are Mauser's (various countries I believe) Enfield's (the British 303 version and the Pakistani? .308 version) and Mosin Nagant's(they have the...
