I'm interested in what everyone would pick up. Let's say for the sake of the discussion you had 4 empty slots in a gun safe and wanted 4 rifles to cover the basics. I don't want to color the discussion too much but if you were starting fresh, or recommending to others what 4 rifles would you buy? as an example: 10/22, AR-15, 30-06 hunting rifle, Mosin Nagant (these are just an example, not my four). What 4 rifles would you consider essential for a minimalist gun owner? (while covering some essential intended purposes: target/varmint shooting, hunting, defense, or any other use). Respond as minimally as which make/model or as detailed as to why. I'm curious as to what other folks consider the basic necessities of rifles. Price does matter, not your 4 dream rifles... but 4 you would consider ideal to own. Why 4? no reason, it's a simple affordable number. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
