> SHORT VERSION: <br>> <br>> The short version is I'm looking for suggestions regarding bull pup style rifles that people have enjoyed using, or know to be of good quality at a reasonable price. <br>> <br>> LONG VERSION: <br>> <br>> I'm working on my gun collection. I already have a few 22 plinkers and an antique pistol. Now I've decided to get one 'nice one' of each of four classifications of firearms: pistol, shotgun, bull pup rifle, and (long range) rifle. Here's what I've worked out so far, please feel free to comment on any category. <br>> <br>> Pistol: I just purchased a Glock 40. I also plan on purchasing the conversion barrel to 9mm so that I can use different ammo when I feel like it. Plus, doing this light gunsmithing work will give me an excellent opportunity to really learn a lot about my pistol. I may also go with the 3.5lb trigger, that's undecided and I'll probably have a real gunsmith do that one. I put a lot of consideration into this one, balancing against the Sig or 1911, but decided in the end to go with the Glock. If you have any suggestions for accessories which fit Glock rails, I'm interested in opinions. <br>> <br>> Shotgun: Easy choice, I'll be going with the Mossberg 500. It's a little pricey but there's tons of secondary market accessories including but not limited to folding stocks so I can switch from hunting shotgun to combat style shotgun depending on my mood. The reviews for this shotgun are insane, I couldn't find a single person who was unhappy with it. <br>> <br>> Bull Pup: I have no idea, looking for suggestions. This may or may not be replaced by getting an AR-15. <br>> <br>> Long Range Rifle: This is the big money item. I'll either go with .308 Winchester Mag or 50 cal. Depending on whether I decide to start small and build myself up to an excellent rifle or spend all my money at once will determine what brand I get. If I decide to go full tilt all at once I'll probably get a Barrett, otherwise I will probably pick up a Remington rifle (basically just for the action) and build it up by purchasing lots of high end parts. This purchase is probably several years away, so I'm not in a big rush.

For &quot;sniper&quot; rounds, a .308, .30-30/.3006, or even a .270 would be ideal...

Someone not special, Esquire 229 November 05, 2007 01:46AM

So the movie shooter.

Cointreau 236 November 05, 2007 05:45AM

Yes, they can do that.

That assumes a perfectly trained sniper and perfect conditions. nt

I personally like the model 870 over the Mossberg 500, but I'm not an expert. nt

Remmington 870 has way more options and parts available for modifications n/t
