J.Kb. mentioned the Ruger LC Carbine in 5.7×28. There was recently a YouTube review on the LC Carbine. It seems like a nice place between a pistol caliber carbine and a full up “deer rifle” Only $1000.
Somebody else mentioned a lever action in .357 Magnum. $700 for a Rossi and north of $1200 for a Henry, Marlin or Winchester.
Not to mention I want a .50Cal bolt action or semi auto. Call it $2000 to $10,000 depending on make and model.
There is the acres of land I want so I can have a private range.
There is the collage education for my children.
Would it have been so bad for God to have made me a rich man?
