    JackTW I also loath the term "Assult Rifle". It makes my blood boil, puts my nose out of joint what ever or however someone wishes to describe it. I've gotten down right vicious verbally, even with my own family members over it!
    It is a term the libs came up with decades ago and is SO over used and wrong I can't even begin to express myself on it. The 2nd Amendment has absolutely NOTHING in it about hunting, competitive shooting, or sporting PERIOD. it is our right to protect ourselves against a tyrannical government PERIOD. It out lays what we can do in such an occasion god forbid it ever comes to that.

    Now as far as replacing an AR with a lever action that's up to you. Each has its own abilities. For me personally if the blank hits the fan I know what I'm grabbing and it won't be a lever. I can give volume of fire plus accurate fire in all light conditions. Carry a lot more ammunition and reload a whole lot faster.
    That's my take on the topic.

    Agreed, VSala. I love my levers for hunting but when things get frisky, I have a good number of other firearms better suited for the job at hand.

    One should never forgo functionality for the task at hand. You choose the best platform for the job.

    You know this has got me thinking and I keep coming back to one conclusion, its more about the man that the gun. The best self loading magazine fed rifle cant compensate for lack of skill. Think about it, take your cousin or a guy from work with little or no firearm experience. Hand him a semi auto rifle. He wont know how to load it let alone fire to effect and a stoppage? He would be there till the following Sunday.

    I like threads like this. I am very odd indeed.

    The box magazine lever rifles could be modified to take higher capacity magazines. A BLR or Henry Long Ranger with 20 shots would be quite effective.

    I love my leverguns for all the reasons that I have them, but home defense is not one of them. I keep a 5.56 for that and it sits ready 24/7 with a light, red dot sight and laser sight operated by pressure switch loaded with 2-30rd magazines clamped together and another two sitting next to it. I don't get a big thrill out of shooting the 5.56 as I've done enough of that for this life and the next, but there isn't a levergun on the planet that'll touch what it can do as far as defending my home and family.

    It always comes down to the Indian, and not the arrow. The guy with more skill, better tactics, more willingness to fight is going to beat the guy the just has better gear. AR15s/etc are awesome but they aren't magic wands. You're still going to need to train if you want to be effective.

    In an actual dirty fan situation there are going to be a bunch of people dumping their 10 AR mags, 10lb decked out AR, and plates on the side of the road when he figures out carrying food and water are more important. The guy with a .357 Marlin will probably hang onto his gun a little longer. If you're at home you can use anything your want but fighting in your front yard is a bad thing. If your plan is to be in a bunch of gunfights you aren't going to last very long no matter your weapon of choice. You need to start networking and building valuable skills/material.

    Some wise words in there. I seen some super heavy super accessorised guns at the range, and asked if they have a wheeled carriage for them? My own rule of thumb, one yard and seven pounds. Dont always make it, but try to stay close.
