Okay. I guess it is time to start an investigation. I might also decide to get a horse and a longer sword.

I'll charge into battle with sword in my right (or left, I can use both) hand and my gun in the other. Maybe I'll even get a carbine and be even more devastating in a fight.

It sounds incredible, but hey, I can dream.

This is a three shot grouping after I got my 30-06 dialed in a while back (100 yards). Note the grouping below then the grouping after slight tweaks were made.

This rifle is a model 70 Winchester bolt.

I'm not by any means the best shot when I was a young boy I watched my mother shoot a deer off hand from about 400 yards on a mountain slope and she shot it in the neck to waste the least amount of meat. I will never live up to those standards.

Long guns, you might want to look at an antique and as for shotguns there are Turkish imports that are nice and cheap.  Again this is in the US so it might be different in your country.

Yeah yeah yeah because it's cheap and ugly it's supposed to be hated right?

Don't be a fud CJAMP. Hi-Points may be fugly but it's not trying to win a beauty contest it's trying to give the poorest people a chance to defend themselves, you know the people most likely to suffer a home invasion?

So yeah when Mr. Cowboy asked for the cheapest gun, the answer is Hi-Point is the best gun out there for that. Hi-Point wants the poor to be able to be gun owners and protect themselves. They make great guns for the price and they offer a lifetime warranty...No gunmaker offers that, so yeah I love Hi-Point and I'll take on anyone who gives it crap. Not everyone can run out and buy a Glock or a Beretta.

Watch Paul Harrell's video where he shows how hard it is to disassemble and reassemble one. They have problems beyond their looks.

Yes the Hi-Point is a total nightmare to takedown, and that is the biggest downside to them, but again if you are looking for the cheapest possible gun, then Hi-Point is it. The Hi-Point isn't the pistol you want to ideally carry but if you are dirt poor and need a pistol that will go bang when you squeeze the trigger, I dare you to find me one that is better than a $200 Hi-Point at that price point.

In a world where the discount pistols go for $450, a $200 and $50 of ammo could possibly save some poor persons life.

Again I'm not recommending this to everyone, just those who can't afford much or even those who simply want a bang gun. It's stupid for someone to plop down $700 for a Glock only for it to sit in a drawer indefinitely and only be used in emergencies... You don't need to spend that much $$$. Buy the Glock if you have the $$$ and you are going to go out to the range regularly to shoot the thing.

Yeah I looked around online for .303 rounds: out of stock. Ammo prices in general seem to have risen exponentially also. Hmmm, a few years ago my democratic champagne socialist sister mentioned one day (probably gleaned from NYT) the solution to gun violence wasn't baning guns but charging a thousand dollars per round. A sneaky work-around  but I'm afraid that's the way their minds work. Ammunition manufacturer may be a good start-up now days.
Oh, where are the snows of yesteryear!

Primers are the problem right now. It's dangerous to manufacture the kind that are both reliable and not corrosive. It also requires approval from BATFE and probably some other alphabet soups.

But you might be right about your sister's ammo price theory. One conspiracy theory floating around is that leftist billionaires are buying up all the primers... I'm not sure I buy that (yet), but if the shortage continues indefinitely, it'd be something to investigate.
