The other obvious choice for a third gun is one of my favorite bug out guns, the T/C contender or T/C encore.
I'm looking for something to complement my Beretta CX4 SBR (9mm)/Aimpoint H1 (4 MOA)/single-point sling and PX4 SC (9mm) combo.
I'd like something for Appleseed and Practical Rifle classes, plinking, hog hunting (possibly), and zombies.
Thinking maybe a Scout-like Tikka T3 Lite (.223)/Aimpoint 9000L (2 MOA)/Ching sling?
While the .243 has more punch (and Cooper-approved), I expect it'd bother my shoulder (multiple surgeries). If OK with Managed Recoil ammo, would be expensive to shoot hundreds of rounds at classes.
I'd add a Limbsaver, bob the barrel down to 16-19" (recommendations?), add a third sling point, and possibly mount the Aimpoint forward on a rail.
I'd appreciate any thoughts.
I do also like the idea of the T/C Contender in .223.
Anyone think it the better choice? In the unlikely event of bugging out on foot, it might actually come along.
