Cityboy needs rifle advise
So, my wife's father has invited me up to the u.p of michigan to go hunting with him and his family. This is a big deal in the family and I want to show up properly equiped but not looking like I just went out and bought what I thought looked cool. Im from Chicago, so know pretty much nutn about rifles. My goal is to find a good rifle and practice so I dont embaress myself. Idea so far is Rock River LAR-8 VARMINT A4 with Leupold scope. Here's my reasoning: AR has less recoil than bolt action and since Im not becoming a sniper AR's are pretty much as accurate. I chose 308 over 223 because I will have only one rifle and was told some states its illegal to hunt with 223. I have also looked at DPMS but seemed to find better reviews about rock river. Any and all comment/suggestions appreciated. Thx!
