    Second Tea Party

    List the one you think our great grand kids will talk about the most.
    I say it will be the good old American bolt action Hunting rifle;)

    It'll be the Nerf N-Strike series of......toys. Since, were well on our way to losing real firearms. :rolleyes:

  4. I agree, Ron. Most likely it will be bolt action rifles chambered for the .30-06, .270, .30-30 and similar calibers, and revolvers or pistols chambered for .38/.357, .45 ACP, and 9mm.

    Ron,
    While the old standard hunting rifle will DEFINITELY play a MAJOR role, I believe they well be referred to more as "sniper" rifles when all is said and done. NOT saying that is the ONLY way they will be used, but when history is written......

    They may not be the "best" battle rifle for the upcoming tea party, but I believe the most widely "used" rifle will be the AR-15 and/or the Mini-14. Simply because so many people seem to have one or the other. (or both)

    If you're saying what I think you're saying...

    the best rifle will turn out to be the M16

    No doubt the "best" will be the one you have when the excrement hits the rotary cooling device........That said, any clone of the AK will no doubt prevail simply because its the most durable, reliable and effective arm produced in the last 100 years......>MW

    Ok, MW, so what would be an example of a reliable, quality AK clone that i might look to acquire at the next local gun show? I'd really like one of those.

    Grae, The Yugo's are nice. They seemed to be a little more solid than the Wasr-10. I have owned a few WASR's and they are good guns but probably the least in the fit an finich department.

    Pistol,

    I learned to drink tea in Japan. If it's Earl Grey, chuck away...

    However, a roaring fire, adult beverages and an evening of rowdy war stories sounds great!

    AR's are fun little rifle to take to the gun range:D but I would rather have a battle rifle with a real bullet, that won't jam after being covered in crap from crawling in the mud and muck .:eek:

    Yup....Been There, Done That:cool:

    P.S. The AR is Not a Battle Rifle, so it can not be the answer to the previous question
