Default If you were buying a rifle to protect your "ranch".

Let's say some guy wants a good rifle to protect his family after something bad happens to this country/world.

Would you recommend an AR platform?

What about an M1A1 version?


Someone is asking me, but I am a bit biased towards being able to "reach out and touch someone" with the .308

This will always be one of those arguments that will never end, what kind of gun to get.

Get what feels comfortable in your arms/hands. Most modern weapons will fire when you pull the trigger every time as long as it's kept clean. Little muscle memory goes a long way so go to the range at least once a month in case you need to pull it out quick and hit targets.

GET WHAT FEELS GOOD TO YOU OR WHOEVER YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

Heh... very good point.

Oh I agree Thisisnotchad, I'd go with a m1A1, bulkiness of the weapons doesn't bother me much.

Hell, they have enough money, they should get both.

Dumb question.
What is right for someone else might not be right for you.
Learn to figure things out for yourself instead of relying on others.
What can you afford, shoot repeatedly comfortably, how much ammo can you carry, can you even hit anything 100 feet away or hit things about as far as you can see.
It won't do any good if it kills your shoulder after 5 shots.
A .50 cal sounds all bad ass till you have to carry it and some ammo.

Probably was a dumb question as I know what I would do, but I value opinions here... some might even have experience.

harsh man, harsh!

I've got and FN-FAL (STG58) and it's a damn fine piece of machinery. But it's heavy and not the best balance when actually toting it around.
But it has a heavy-ass granade launcher on the end and a built in bipod, which I am sure adds to the front-heavy nature of it.
That SA58 might feel a lot better balanced with it's much shorter barrel (although I wonder what effect a 11" barrel has on the nature of a .308.)

SA58 in the Carbine model, has a choice, 16.5 and 18 barrel, I have a 18 and its very accurate, eats all ammo, and is way lighter than the 21 in barreled rifle, of course, I did the short gas system too, which has worked very well.
