This is a fun discussion thread i saw on another site.

 

If you could only own ONE rifle, that your would have to use for EVERYTHING (Hunting, Home Defense etc) what would it be, and what optics would you mount on it?

 

Mine is as follows:

 

A Tooley Custom rifle in .270 weatherby magnum with

   McMillian stock

   Jewell trigger

   Tooley custom bdl action

   24inch  Krieger stainless steel barrel

   Sako extracter

   Mercury recoil reducer

WITH:

 

A Swarovski PV 3-12 X 50 scope.

Springfield SOCOM 16. 

If home defense comes into play you generaly want something short and reasonably controllable.  If hunting was not in the picture, I'd go for 12 gauge pump shotgun.  If hunting/food gathering are part of the equation I'd want a semiauto with something more powerful than a 223.  Here in California there are very few semiautos youcan get: Kel-Tec SU16 (I've got one and I like it a fair bit), SKS (I've got a couple and it would be my second choice behind the Springfield), M1A, Browning BAR and Rem 7400.

 

M1a Socom 16 with chambered in 308 with a 16" barrel and a capability to have a forward mounted scout sight or a more conventional scope is probably the most versatile firearm from the list.

P.S. I've heard that a DSArms FAL is legal in CA, but I have not seen one anywhere.

You limit the set of conditions to rifles-so I would keep my folding stock Galil .308 with the 5 -30 shot mags. and the optics-well, just the stock iron sights.

I believe the semi's going into the Cal. gulag  must have a fixed mag, which means the assembley must be loaded with some type of stripper clip. - from the top with the bolt held open.

The G3KA4 with 12.4 st The G3KA4 with 12.4 inch barrel, smallest 7.62 x 51 caliber rifle that HK actually manufactures.

 

Scope would be a Leupold MR/T 3-9x36 on a factory HK throw lever mount.

Cory i've read a few of your post where you say 14X is WAYYYYY to much power. What are you doing with such a high power scope?

i use it for shooting out to 1500 yards, so i need a bit of power, but unless im target shooting, or long range varmint hunting (400-1000 yards) i never turn it off 4.5X.

   I guess for both feeding myself and defending my home I would take my good old Ar-15 M4 flat top and eotech 551 sight. The trick to the rig is my Mini 14 3gen nightvision mono attached to my head which means while I can't shot 1000 yards I can shot 24 hours a day behind the 551nv sight. I guess everyone else better hide when it gets dark.Good night vision is costly but alot of fun I can promis you that much!
