    i want to get something like a sniper rifle and a good home defense rilfe that i can take to the range and have some fun with.

    i was thinking more of a hunting rifle for deer and wild hog.
    and for a home defence rilfe, somthing with a collaspeable stock. (what about M4's)

    What are you hunting and what calibers are legal for hunting it in your state?

    not sure a "sniper rifle" would be good for home defense.

    if you have to shoot somebody that bullet is going through them and possibly through walls.

    I personally wouldn't want to have to live with killing a thief and the neighbor next door

    long rifles don't make good home defense weapons. as already said, bullets will go through brick, etc and into your neighbors house. and the rifles are so long that they don't go through doorways well. you either have to swing them wide or drop them low to get through doors.

    i don't hunt, so i have no idea. maybe a Remington 700 or something. as for HD, get a shotgun or a handgun.

    An excellent choice, especially with something like .223
