Just sitting here thinking for a bit about changing my collection. Currently I enjoy a mix of modern and pre-WWII era guns, but may be moving around a lot in the next few years. I'm considering ridding of some of my budget ARs, PCCs, 22s I don't like, etc.
While I love John's videos on the following topics, I wanted your opinions too.
I would like to get a homefront defense type gun. Currently I've got a PSA (local) and a locally made budget AR. While both are very reliable, I'm considering in the future upgrading to either a very high quality AR (LMT, DD, BCM), or maybe exercising my weirdness and getting an X95, Bren 2, or something of that sort.
What are your thoughts on having multiiple budget guns vs one battle-ready type solution? My main concerns are storing guns I don't have room for while staying ready to protect my loved ones. I'm leaning towards an IWI X95 to replace the budget ARs and others, and getting a nice optic for it.
Does anyone have experience going from AR to bullpup and how did it go for you? Also, one thing to consider: I have bad shoulders from some hockey injuries (surgery on both) so the less weight I have to hold out in front of me the better. The closer my arms are to my body, the easier it is on my shoulders.
