I read everything on the first page and skimmed the last two pages, if this has been mention then disregard. Being in the gun industry and owning a lot of guns there is one very important gun that for the budget minded should not be disregarded and that is the Mosin Nagant Chambered in 7.62X54R it is a gun that in most of America can be bought for as little as $69 and the most I’ve seen was $169 and a 440 round spam can of ammo can be had for $92. So lets average that. For $200 you can have a powerful rifle and 440 rounds of ammo. Just Sayin!
