“.30-.30 lever action...the Original Assault Rifle”
____________________________________________________

My pre-64 Winchester is STILL the one I’m likely to reach for first if the SHTF.

My Bells and Whistles .308? Not a long-term option if an armorer or quality gunsmith is unavailable.

My wife’s AR-15? Don’t make me laugh!

M-39 Finnish Mosin Nagant? A solid second, but not as practical here in the Northwest rainforest.

Probably much better trained with handguns and a 12 gauge, but I’ve always thought of myself as a rifleman first. Funny.

I like this article - thanks for posting.

Odd though it may sound, I've been considering a Remington 7600 in .308 as a "go to" rifle of late.

The Winchester feels good. The sights come up easy and is handles great.
Its 30-30 round isnt a world beater,but it stops a lot of both four and two legged game.
I like it..and I too have a pre 64....
