    If semi auto firearms were not an option.

    Consider this a hypothetical question.

    I was talking to someone the other day about "safe" options in ban states and possible future bans. Yeah, I know and also strongly agree with the stance of not complying to draconian gun laws.

    I have a feeling a huge resurgence of the home defense pump action shotgun or maybe even a wave of the cowboy carbine setups would happen. I am curious the thoughts of other people on here.

    Pretty much going back to what was commonly available in the 60s or prior to semi autos becoming mainstream.

    For a rifle probably some kind of 357/44 mag lever action. You can find them from 5-10 round tubes +1 in chamber. Of course there's always the ever popular 30-30. If I had larger property a Ruger scout in 223 or 308. Bolt action but mag fed.

    Good point about the larger property. I actually live on a plot of land that easily takes me out of shotgun range. So a Marlin 336 set up with a light or a Remington 700 with the Magpul hunter stock would be better suited for any outdoor activities.

    If semi's are not an option then it's time for full.

    Probably a lever or revolving rifle/carbine in .357 or .44.

    And the gamers go to PRS rifles and then the anti-s loose their ever loving minds when 1600 yard shots become common skills....

    Living on .25 acre, I'd probably roll with a pump shotgun, but I'd be heavily tempted by a .357/44 lever action with matching revolver.
