    You're assuming the next proposed ban, will be like the last one.

    Not that it would happen, but I'd get a .338 lapua or a .308 sniper rifle with great optics.

    When it's time to hide the EBRs, it's time to use them.

    I like a ton of others hypothetically of course would just keep my AR's and AK's. If I had to pick out of the non banned guns at the time it would be between a Mini 30 or mini 14 that I will buy, then augment that with the Mossberg 590 marinkote that I already have.

    I will not legitimize an illegal or immoral law period , quite frankly I am saddened at some of the answers I've seen here . If they come to Illegaly confinscate your arms in violation of the constitution it is your duty and obligation to refuse,

    Just for the hypothetical... I'd have to go with my Mossberg M590a1 for home defense (same job it has now - 9 rounds of 00 buck will take care of just about ANY home defense problems short of an entire platoon).

    For an offensive battle rifle/hunting rifle/all around rifle, I'd go for a M1 Garand that I'd "ruin" with a really nice modern optic, maybe a new barrel, and that'd be that. It'd be more accurate than I'd ever need, and I'd wager that with a Garand and 1 extra clip I'd be able to inflict about as much damage as twice that number of rounds from an AR, and from a longer distance.

    The previous generation of battle rifles were called battle rifles for a reason...

    Where have you been? More than 60% of Americans aren't doing anything with many of President's EOs, Obamacare, Fast n furious, eric? If they allowed those to happen then I won't be surprised if the US Govt will take our gun rights away. It is building to that point.

    I have always really liked those. Seem like a handy rifle for someone with a ranch/property and likes the traditional style.

    A buddy of mine works for a PD that was issued the pump .223s.

    He said the officers did not like them. I told him they were not tacticool enough. Another officer said they were accurate and reliable but they wanted ARs.

    If it is issued (free) and it worked, I could care less what it looks like. Heck, give me a lever gun for all I care. I think those lever guns look way cooler than an AR anyway. Too many tactidweebs and operaturds ruined the whole AR thing anyway.

    The truth is, spraying and praying is fun, but not that useful. If you can't use a pump as fast as a semi-auto, you aren't using the semi-auto right to begin with.

    They can ban all they want to. They aren't getting my stuff until I'm dead and gone. That's just how it is.
