    If congress bans a bunch of semi autos, or if you live in NY, and you decided to give all your semi autos a "decent burial", which guns would then become your favorites for defense, range fun, etc. You know, those guns you could shoot and be seen with, that wouldn't rile the politically sensitive if they "caught" you with them? Personally, I would pack a Ruger .44 Special, either a Sheriff's model, or the NM Flattop, or my S&W 1917, and probably have my .30-06 Scout Remington 700 close at hand. All of those guns can do the tasks I might ever encounter, including self defense, and as slow as the Scout rifle might be compared to semi-autos, it makes up for in sheer speed to target acquisition. I like to think of it as "Four shots, four kills", instead of "One shot, one kill".:D [​IMG][/IMG][​IMG][/IMG]

    I'm liking that 1917 you have there ! Nice gun.

    I grew up with revolvers, and they are still my primary use handguns. Bedside is a 44 Spl .

    A bolt gun is going to be the slowest repeating firearm, I would not consider one for my home defense long gun. If limited to 7 rounds and no semi-auto, my preference would be for a 12-gauge pump shotgun with mag tube extension and a 7-shot S&W revolver.

    I don't have any semi-autos. I lost them all in a tragic boating accident.

    Man it seems a lot people are having issues with their boats lately. :D

    I would probably go with revolvers for handguns, a pump action shotgun, and bolt guns. Those seem not to rile the antis like other firearms do.

    686+ quiet likely. If I wanted something smaller, maybe a Python. Long gun, my SMLE, or a lever action in .357.

    Sharps, I get a lot out of your posts on this board and I have a ton of respect for you. That said, I don't find this particular "what if" exercise to be that much fun.

    357 levergun, 357 revolver. The levergun has fair capacity and maybe a litle faster than a bolt gun.

    We can't worry, get mad, piss ourselves, or let others get us upset ALL the time. What I might do AFTER I bury them is still up for grabs. I like to think I am DANGEROUS with any gun I might be toting. I INTEND to be dangerous, that is what guns are for. I'd like to have some anti's out on the range with me, and show them what a bolt, or even a single shot can do (Quigley featured a Sharps doing some darn good shooting, right?), and maybe they'd see that it is futile to ban anything (as if any ban is going to make crime, OR guns go away). So, lighten up, and put your tongue in your cheek, and bear some arms. A good man with a bolt rifle can conquer 140 men with a squad machinegun (see the exploits of Sgt York).

    Another unlucky boater, so burial isn't on the cards. All I have left are bolt actions and shotguns. Awful tragedy.

    No joke, I'm thinking seriously about one of those semi auto converted 1919s. House layout would support the installation upstairs in the master bedroom and no detachable magazine ftw...

    The wife still can't believe it's legal, and she's actually considering it rather than saying no way you idiot. Given she's a dyed in the wool guns are evil liberal, that shows how times are changing.

    Otherwise it'll be a mini 14 ranch with the eotech and probably a benelli. Can't fit more than that in the upstairs safe.

    Just saying, I can work my boltgun just as fast ( in a prone position) as my lever action. It's all in having a rifle with a proper fit.

    I know semis are just the first step, i believe the op was about what guns would we recommend if semi-type weapons were banned. if that happened we would be left with mainly revolvers, pumps and bolt guns
