    We have a pistol and shotgun and now want a LRR for home defense and target shooting. The wife was thinking about SKS, AK, AR-15 and other "black rifles" (Now that NBC has coined these "evil weapons" Ooooh I'm scared) but aside from the wife's wishful thinking of a "Swiss Army" AR-15, I'm more simplistic and practical minded.

    Now I love Mossberg and I hear they make some fine LR-hunting rifles but I'd like to hear it from the floor. My desired rifle must be...

    1. Simple to clean.

    2. Known for good accuracy out to 150 yards.

    3. Affordable under 600.00

    4. Must not be hindered by expensive amo, lack of amo due to being a foreign weapon or expensive because of foreign parts.

    4. Easily scopable. My scope budget is 300.00

    any suggestions?

    I like your wife's idea.

    Besides, I say humor her. You could be picking out a sofa. :p
