    if you could only have one, what would it be?

    Terrifying thought I know. But if you could only have one centre fire rifle what would it be?

    Sure this has been done before but anyway anything in 30 cal 3006 or 308. You can load from 110 gr for rabbits to 200 gr for things a little bigger, not much else that's that versatile.

    Well the first thing would be to work on the principle of f*king off the retarded, anally driven, killjoy assholes who legislated for such a thing, so it has to be,

    An Ar 15 with say 5 or 6 or 7 uppers in different cals and a spare lower or maybe 2.

    223 14.5inch chrome lined, light barrel service carbine, red dot, colour - assault black
    223 20inch service rifle, iron sights - assault black
    223 24inch? match grade SS kruger or shilen single shot and the biggest effing "sniper" scope I can find, paint it camo.
    6.5 something like a grendal for long range punch
    300acblackout. sub-sonic, just for the hell of it
    762x39 russian well why not
    22LR very cheap yet incredible fun.

    1 lower, service rifle grade.
    "spare" 1 lower, 2 stage match grade.

    make it E cat with bayonets and get some of those 40/60/100round snail mags, in fact a bag of them.

    I'm going through this ordeal at the moment. Currently my 7/08 does everything I desire but I want something lighter and 'cooler' for use of a better word.

    Wouldn't give my guns for the one, even if a law as such was past. I would simply just refuse to surrender them. If you have to fight for something, your freedom is probably one of the best reasons to make a stand.

    If I could only have one then one of these, (although someone else would have to buy it for me)

    Of no practical use here but life is far too short for ugly guns and .500 might be just enough gun to stop rampaging goats

    I'd cheat and own one AR lower and my fleet of uppers. If I couldn't cheat I guess I'd make do with my Spikes M4 for everything.

    I already have it in my safe.😆
    And has 3, soon to be 4 different calibers that can be selected and fitted to shoot in under a minute with no mucking around or rezeroing.
    Can fill the freezer from point blank range to a km away if you have your shit squared away.

    What more do you need other than maybe a higher cyclic rate and mag capacity.

    Only got one so i'd keep that - 308!

    I'd cry if you were only allowed one firearm fullstop (including rimfire/shotty). Is there talk of such a law happening?

    The only centre fire rifle I have is my suppressed 17 inch barrel 7mm-08, it's all I need right now but If I moved down south I'd want a long range set up.

    My Baikal IZH 94 12G over 7x57R,best of both worlds and built like the brick shitter.
    And a box of claymores for the mass attack of the undead for when I can't reload fast enough.
    And my KTM for pissing off in a hurry.
