    My only long gun for defense.
    I set it up like this, against the wood pile sometimes, up against the bedroom corner and sometimes setting up against the safe.

    I suppose I could use one of my bolt action meat guns for self defense?
    If this is to end in fire then we should all burn together.

    Very simple setup for me. Shake awake Optic, Flashlight, Sling, Silencer, same setup on both my long guns I keep ready.
    Tavor loaded with Hornady TAP, with extra mags standing by with M193 and M855 and MP5 ready with 147 HST. (Same round I load into all my defensive pistols)
    I keep meaning to get a mag coupler for both so I can reload without pants.

    My Home Defense long arm is a CZ Scorpion EVO S3 pistol with a brace. Right now it is pretty well stock with a "shake awake" red dot.

    I have a Form 1 out for a suppressor. Once it returns I will probably do the same for an SBR license. I suspect that the whole "Brace" thing will eventually end by executive fiat. Other than that, I am thinking of putting a light on it.

    However, so far, just a brace and a red dot.

    Got an AR / an SKS / two lever guns - .44 mag & .30-30 / and a Remington 550-I, semi auto .22 rifle. All iron sights.

    I don't have a bolt-action or shotgun in the mix, but don't feel under gunned either. Any future upgrades would be on the AR, and that would be optics, but fortunately there's no need for that yet.

    TBH, my long gun training is none. About 80% of long gun shooting has been via indoor ranges - 50 yrd.

    I much prefer shooting long guns, compared to handguns.

    Favorite pair out of the thread. So much gunfighting class between the two, they should be considered royalty.

    I keep my rifles all stock with the exception of an EOTech sight on one Colt LE 6920.

    I have two shotguns ready for use should the need arise - a Winchester '97 (Norinco made) in the bedroom closet and a mule eared double barrel 20 gauge in the front closet. I have a Winchester 94 Trapper in .357 but I like the shotguns better.

    I don't know what to choose. Long guns... 410 bore SxS, 20 ga bolt, 12 ga wingmaster as well as a SxS. Reach further? 10 ga SxS ( don't trip both triggers at once lol). Bolt in 25-20, pump in 32-20. Marlin lever in 32 win special. And a sporterized 303 Enfield.

    ETA: probably going to add an AR or 3 to the group at some point. That pistol of @Bad Bob looks like just the ticket for one of them.

    Here is my shorty: 9Ē BCM .300 Black, MCMR rail, Troy Irons.

    The Carbine/Patrol rifle proficiency class I attended with with Justified Defensive Concepts was amazing. Iíll get a review AAR up this week in the training section. To be in a class with seven other students and have the attention and combined experience of 5 Cadre was quite the jump on getting to that next level I am always striving for.
