Rifle is easy. Go with an AR-15 of some description, chambered in 5.56. They're easy to find, relatively inexpensive for what they are and the round is great. It has low recoil but high performance. The bullet is small but it is fired at very high speed and penetrates well.Sieg Zeon wrote: ↑Mon Jul 27, 2020 3:19 pmAhh, a man of fine taste. I believe only 176 were ever manufactured, I’ve always want to fire one, or at least see it up close and personal.
Question for DHI, I’ve got lax options for firearms access, and am trying to get one each of a handgun, shotgun, and rifle.
Regarding the the shotgun I’ve narrowed it down between the Remington 870 and the Mossberg 500. I like their specs and my local shop/range will let me try them both out before buying. Price tags are decent on both.
The handgun is the most important, since it’ll be my open carry. I’ve had dozens of manufacturers and models thrown at me, so this will be the tougher one. I learned to shoot from an early age and am a decent shot still, so hit me with your personal preferences and information.
The rifle is a bit different. I’ve only ever handled hunting rifles, so civilian available rifles for popping antifag heads from a vantage point self defense are the most unfamiliar to me.
I do like revolvers too, but want to go magazine based for the handgun. I might get a snub nosed revolver for concealed carry or to serve as a backup weapon, depending on my budget.
Remington or Mossberg, same shit. Pick one you like. They're essentially the same fucking gun. Some people like Mossberg and some like Remington more but I'm convinced it's brand loyalty and nothing else. I have shot Mossbergs and they were fine. Get one in 12 gauge and you can buy bird shot for peanuts to practice with. Don't buy the "maverick" mossbergs (budget model) because those are made by tacos in Mexico and they suck.
If you've shot from an early age, you probably have some handgun preferences, right? Find a high-performance, quality carry piece in the caliber and style you prefer. I recommend Sigs if you are undecided on brand, but there are plenty of other decent handgun manufacturers out there. I also recommend against Glawks unless you have experience using them and like the way they feel. I hate Glawk ergos. Carry revolvers can be pretty nice if you don't mind only having 6 shots.
