Johnny- you're right, and this is what saddens me about the present-day mindset; all of the talk, frantic purchasing and hoarding etc. all being done with the viewpoint that a neighbor and fellow American could be your enemy if society were to decay to that point.JohnnyLoco said:I ain't saying the 30-30 won't do the job but even I had to take a step back and do an assessment of the world today. Your enemies are using Colt AR's and H&K, thats the cold hard facts of life.
Srry johnny...i was waxing about myself and my personal learning curve. Greenhorn is also how i feel about my skills and abilities and is why i am here. I apologize if my message was unclear.JohnnyLoco said:I like this one, maybe I misunderstood:
"my levers can do that in spades! Each job has a tool I guess...and maybe the trick is knowing how to use them"
So the choice not to use a Lever action as a urban combat weapon is our ignorance of its use ???
Have you ever tried reloading, much less a lever action, while a hellstorm of bullets are flying at you? ;D
Give me suppressing fire capability for close quarters anytime
I once fancied doing the same. Problem is, as I've come to learn, everyone else in my community (and surrounding ones) who's a hunter, survivalist and others with guns (some of whom may not be, shall we say, well tied together) will probably be heading out there as well. Some of them have longer range guns than mine, and may not take kindly to intruders.If I need to drop out then i go to the hills, a very nice spot has been worked out that provides all my family would need and the savage .308 provides all the reach.
