Plenty of stuff to sift through here.
Thanks to all who weighed in.
If I expanded the criteria to say a rifle that can do longer distance target and pest, but can also handle self-defense, and possible loss of law and order scenario, would you say an AR-15 could hande both pretty well?
What kind of AR-15?
I think someone suggested the RRA AR-15?
I get the sense that for just target and pest, the others are better suited - Rem 700, CZ-527, Tikka, etc?
