Don’t overlook surplus rifles like the mosin nagant or sks. If your set on 30-06 you can find lower cost fire arms out there.Statistics: Posted by danthman114 — Thu Nov 09, 2017 4:01 pm

Ammo could be an issue so something that is common. 5.56(.223), 7.62 Nato (.308), 9mm or .45Acp. A good battle rifle (5.56) and many extra magazines, a good 9mm hi cap pistol (or a .45 auto) is a start. The AR10 platform (7.62 Nato) is good to 700 …

I see. It was still a good shot. Now, if it was a big brown bear like you might find in Alaska I suppose you could take it out with a .223 if you hit it just right, but it would have to be a really really good shot.

Well for that, particularly the lions and bears, I would go with something along the lines of a .30 06[/quote]

A couple years ago I killed a bear on our front step with a .223. He was looking through the sliding glass door at our granddaughters.[/quote]

What kind? A black bear? Or one of those big brown bears?[/quote]

He was a black bear. A .223 will kill most things if you hit them in the right place. I use a .243 a lot of the time. I havent shot a big gun in years.

Next time, and I do so hope there is not a next time, I will try that.

The bugger is as large as my thumb nail. And that is just his body.

the old paper wads used to work better for the job – you can take out little birds like house wrens, mice and most likely a normal sized rat ….

Back around 20 years or so ago, down in the city (Altoona, Pa), a guy cut off another guy. When they came to a red light, the guy that was cut off came out with a baseball bat and starting smashing the drivers side window out.

The guy that had the window smashed, pulled up his model 1911A1 and gave that guy two, 230 grains of self justice :eek: in the face. Rumor has it that it was a closed casket.

No charges were filed.

Interestingly enough there was a case of road rage in NJ that had to do with somebody being cut off. No baseball bats or guns were used but the person who cut the driver off was slapped with a felony and got a major lawsuit (but not for cutting the guy off).
