    I was musing recently with some friends. The question was simple. What manufacturers make a full line of firearms to meet every need and desire? The rifle for hunting, home defense, ranch and farm use, truck rifle and target rifle. Rimfire and centerfire. Pistols for competition, CCW, home defense, hunting, plinking/target and semi-auto or revolver. Rimfire and centerfire. Shotgun for hunting, trap, other sport use, competition, home defense and O/U or SXS. Full auto weapons for competition, exhibition or fun. I believe in Ruger. CZ is a contender. What products and which company would you buy and support? The exercise is to buy from only one manufacturer and buy a full line of small to large bore, rimfire to centerfire, rifle, revolver, semi-auto pistol, shotgun and NFA full auto from only one manufacturer. GO!

    I'd much rather own a M70 AK clone than a Ruger AC556. :neener:

    Beretta come to mind. This was a trick question, right? You are a Beretta sales rep in your real life? http://berettausa.com/

    Hecklar and Koch meets some of your criteria

    (I wish I had the funds to buy at least one of their handguns :banghead: )

    I am a little shocked, but I think Ruger DOES cover most of the ground. Except for military EBRs and Full auto.

    Revolvers
    Autos
    Levers (butt ugly)
    SA Rifles and carbines (Mini-!$, Mini-30, .44 mag, PC series 9mm & 40S&W)
    Ruger No. 1 for accuracy
    Bolts
    Competition type Shotties (no pumps or autos)

    7.62, add an AC 556 in a synthetic stock and it's covered!:evil:

    What is the AC556? :confused:

    Is this it?

    Full auto? The barrel gets real hot firing semi-auto. How does that work?

    I was thinking along the lines of the Ruger MP-9 9MM 600 RPM 32 round magazine.

    I think Ruger wins for the breadth of types covered.

    Oh yeah. H&K has a new line of revolvers and lever guns :rolleyes:

    I think Zastava makes more types than Ruger.

    They may not make lever actions, SA revolvers, or single shots, but they do make SxS, O/U and pump shotguns, air rifles and pistols, rimfire rifles and pistols, semiauto and bolt action centerfire rifles, revolvers, semiauto pistols, and a line of military small arms including a belt fed 12.7mm machine gun and a 30mm grenade launcher.

    And I'd still rather trust my life to a Zastava AK than a Ruger AC556. :evil:

    Ruger it is!;) Hey, you didn't say it had to be a good full auto, I agree, Mini-14 bbls. heat up fast enough!:rolleyes:
    I had forgotten the MP-9, Josey.
    And I'd still rather have a Redhawk than a Zastava revolver.

    But if you got something big that needs to be put down in a hurry, this beats anything Ruger makes. :D

    And it's not even an NFA weapon.

    I am being swayed by the 12.7 mm AA guns :D
