newbie here...............My question is simple. I am in the market to buy a .223, but now come the problems why an ar-15, why not a mini 14, why not the h&k sl-8, or even why not the ar-10, why not a fal. To me its a large investment, I am trying to minimize my dilema by asking questions any takers thanks

Parts of your delima are easy, the AR-10 and FAL are 308 caliber. The Mini 14 is nowhere close to the AR-15 in strength and reliability. The H&K : [img]http://www.hecklerkoch-usa.com/pages/civilian/images/rifle.gif[/img] If you can afford one I'd say go for it, I can't. That said the AR-15 purchase would leave ya more money for mags, ammo and accesories. Mike

Fair enough. To tell the truth, I want an all around one to practice with ( no brainer ) but also one to occasionally hunt with, and the most importantly, one i can depend on if the SHTF to use as a defensive tool.

Hey brdpraey, RAF gave you good advice [b]Think carefully[/b]! Read his post, as your last one just created more questions, [b]Hunt what[/b]? rabbits, coyote, prarie-dog, deer..... moose?, maybe you need the 308 caliber. [:)] Mike Added, figuring in typing time, you [b]thought[/b] for a total of 3.53 seconds, don't think that will qualify as careful thinking. [:)]

The taking of large game is reserved for the 7mm, and my .338 but i intended it for small game because it gives me a moving target sorta speak and for the close encounters that is what the 44 mag is for.:) rick

The hunting was occasional, mainly the shtf scenario.
