I am looking for a semi automatic rifle for Hog Hunting, I don't want to use a handgun so what do you suggest assuming the minimal caliber I'm looking for is 7.62, and the price range is rather low, $100-$500, your thoughts, your suggestions. Thanks

Keep saving, when you get around $1000, then look for a quality rifle, don't buy junk.

um, im not sure which 762 your looking for, maybe a SKS, or if your talking 7.62 nato, a fal. well, you would want to go a bit higher than 500 for that. where you hunting piggies?

Southern Texas, mattsd, How much is that FAL?

DITTO the SKS! It's a cheap, & unbelievably, rugged, reliable, & versatile rifle that'll do whatever needs doing.

the fal is around 5-6 and all the way up to 1000. the higher you go, the better the weapon. i hear an acepptabe fal is avaliable for around 6. also, maybe you should go arkansas style and go with a 10/22.

i should have added. DSA is a good fal, but thats more pricey. you can do a search on gunbroker. you want one on an imbel receiver. mags are cheap too

Yeah, I'm looking at some DSAs on the cover of a Shotgun News, I was wondering about them.

Buy an SKS. They last for ever and you can get some cool goodies on them but most of all they never cost very much.
