What's your dream rifle??

Mine has changed over the years but right now it would be this. A pretty much awesome, all around rifle. If I had to defend my home from the Zombie apocolypse, this would serve me well

I have several on my wish list but still waiting for my last purchase to get here. A Safir Arms T-14. Paid for 7 weeks now, I was promised they were in stock, told mine was shipping but suddenly a no show. Gotten the runaround since then. Everyone tells me this is a very reputable company so I'll sit patiently a couple more months before I ask for my money back.

I know it's not a gee-whiz top of the line weapon but just think it would be neat to have. There are four AR-15s in my immediate family but all are in 5.56/2.23. I wanna be the only kid on the block with one shooting .410 buckshot and rifled slugs. I think it'll be decent for zombie double tap at close range and it can be momma's room broom when I'm out of town.

mine is a combination of features between the hartford and quigley model, in 45-110. I like their website too. It was better before the changed it recently.

If I could only have 1 rifle, the M1 Garand would also be my choice.

I have a close buddy that is a Garand freak. He has several examples. For a rifle noob I gotta say that thing is absolutely wonderful to shoot.......and it makes even me look good.

If I had to choose, right off to bat would be the Weatherby mark V Accumark .338 Lapua magnum simply for it's elegance and accuracy at range. Up closer than 100 yards, AK-47 Bullpup

I'm waiting for Obama to get tossed in November so that our new president will let those million S.Korean M1 Garands and Carbines come back to be sold through the CMP.
With one Correct or Collector Grade each of Garand and Carbine, I'll be a happy camper.

Oh November, where art thou?

The .300 SAUM for 1500-800 yds, then the M1-G. Got a few black tips for both.


Now the dream is a .30-.338 Lapua in a Bat or Nasika action, ACS chassis, and any good barrel.
