I'm going to somewhat agree with Bushy. Although the calibers would be different I'd want to keep it simple. A good bolt action .22 with a 2.5-7x32 scope for small game. a 7mm Rem Mag with a descent 4-16x40 scope and one of those newer Marlin lever guns in a .450 Marlin. These guns would cover any need I would have from a rifle.

One of these in .458 Lott (he's local so what the heck...) Always wanted a DG rifle for some reason....and at 160# wet, it should be 'entertaining' to shoot.

tomdodge.com/rifles/M9.../index.htm




Marlin Guide Gun- .45-70, SS. Just drop dead gorgeous, and potent! There's just sumpin' about these straight gripped stocks.... Razz




My as issued, battle scarred, Yugoslav made M-59 Carbine. This thing is ugly as sin and its' a GREAT all day shooter. It's all orriginal, un- reconditioned, everything works, even the rr sight leaf still slides up and back and it meters distances spot-on.
I'm not sure why, neither is anyone else cuz no one else likes it, but I just love this old thing....esp when the gong goess *clang!* at 200/300y or some furball gets a taste Smile And when the ammo's gone, ya can get up-close-and-personal with the fold-up sticker...old school like! Laughing :

Lucky devil! I've never shot one.

A gent next to me once lit one off and I almost soiled myself. Mad
Said his .470 was even wickeder. Shocked I could not imagine freehanding something like that...

Those DG rifles are really something else and, for me, represent the apex-predator of the rifle world. Not to metnion being drop dead gorgeous as a matter of form follwing function.

Looks can kill. Smile

Hmmm!!

Ruger 10/22 would take care of plinking and small game

AR-15 in 5.56 NATO would take care of varmints, two and four legged and even deer in a pinch. Not at all recommending it as a deer rifle.

Marlin 1895 in .45-70 would take care of just about anything you want, with proper handloads.

Dont know what particular rifle, never want to think of the horror of only allowed to have three.

However, I would consider 3 types.

A good 22LR - for short distances small game.
A good centerfire (maybe a 45-70) for longer distances.
A good shotgun - for close and fast actions.

Basically those are what I carry whenever I went to a new (unknown) hunting locations.
