Mas, I really enjoy reading your articles and posts and I think you might be able to help me in my next purchase. My wife and I have been slowly building a collection of guns to meet various scenarios. We both shoot competitively in USPSA competitions to keep our skill levels up. Our home defense/SHTF collections consists of: Remington 870 shotgun - HD Glock 34/Glock 26 - my carry/HD pistols S&W M&P 9 / Sig P239 - wife's carry/HD pistols Ruger SR556 - SHTF carbine Various .22lr pistols and rifles - cheap practice and survival The next thing on my list is something with a little more reach and a little more accuracy. I'm thinking a bolt-action scoped rifle in .308. Any suggestions? I'm still thinking SHTF or civil unrest scenarios. Would something along the lines of a Remington 700 or Savage 10 be appropriate? Any other suggestions? What about scope magnification power for this type of weapon? Looking forward to your response.
