My longgun of choice is the m1 garand I just bought. It balances well for me. Still have to go shoot it, but have a feeling it will only get better.
My AK has since become a toilet paper holder.
Part of this thread is due to rethinking my weapon selection. Will keep one for CCW, and another for nightstand etc.
Thinking of trying out a 642 for CCW. This would replace my PPS. And going with a P226 or 1911 for the nightstand. Although a glock with conversion barrels does seem tempting.
I hope after graduation I can land a job and afford a lot more guns. Have to be frugal for now though.
