    Favorite .308 rifle?

    What's your favorite .308 rifle?

    I'd have to say the PTR91 (HK91/G3 clone)

    Hi Joe Bob, welcome. My Favourite 308 is whatever one I'm shooting at that moment.

    Head on over to the "introduce yourself " thread and tell us about yourself, and life in Dallas.

    I suspect @Joe_Bob_Briggs may be trolling us. In case you genuinely don't know, those semi-auto centrefires have all recently been declared to be prohibited firearms in NZ by order of Council. As a community of firearms owners that are law abiding and responsible, we are a bit tender from the heavy handed treatment dished out by the government. So, thank you for reminding us.

    First two posts feature prominent semi-auto pix. Trolling for sure.

    Is it against the rules to post pictures of semi-auto firearms?

    The rifle above the PTR91 in my OP is a FR8, a bolt action 7.62x51 rifle. There are plenty of bolt action .308s out there.

    Nope, but you are reminding us of a recent loss.

    Isn't this a hunting/shooting forum? Where is Southland?

    Isn't there plenty of forums in the states to post this?

    Yes it's hunting/shooting. Southland is at the bottom of NZ.

    When did Miami leave? I liked his contributions when he wasn't telling us how great America is or that we should be voting for Trump.
