    True words. Lots of choices. And I paid about the same for my scope as I did my upper.

    I went with 6.5 CM. I like it better than 308, personal preference. I have both.

    For the love of god don’t get the mossberg! If you are going with those two get the Ruger and the Magpul stock. And shtf long range rifle is kind of a moral thing. If you are going to shoot someone at say 500 yards can you really tell they have hostile intentions at that distance? Just having a gun doesn’t mean hostile. I imagine if everything does go south everyone in this state will have their guns out. Except those who voted for Beto of course. Also at 500 yards who’s to say they are even going to come anywhere near you.

    Hahahaha!!!! Made my day.


    But no it’s for hunting mainly but in a situation like that, I’m talking a rare situation. I’d never shoot anyone for their stuff...

    Unless he had fine woman and mine died and my kids needed a mother at the end of this terrible world.

    BANG!

    500 yards later. “Maam you ok? What happened to him? Come with me, me and my kids will protect you...”


    “Can you cook?”

    Just a joke fellas...

    @navysooner
    This is all hypothetical, obviously. All of those factors are considered. That part that is not hunting is simply a huge IF.

    A man’s gotta eat.


    Let me know if you want to join my crew. Need to know before TEOTWAWKI. Showing up afterwards is risky.

    My wife was shot from 500 yards away and one of the responding officers was nearly hit.

    She was in no shape to return fire and I wasn’t home. However, I can imagine scenarios, especially in the country, where it’d be helpful to have the capability to defend yourself with a long range shot.
