I totally agree; the SKS is the best arm for that event! In the mid-1990s, my LGS got in a big shipment of NEW SKS arms, both Russian and Chinese. The Chinese were $92.00 with chest pack, sling, and cleaning kit. The Russians were $140.00. There was NO sales tax, as it was in NH. I spent my muster out retirement pay on SKSs and ammo.

I have not found a better under $100 farm gun. I stashed one in the barn, one in the tractor shed and a few elsewhere about the farm, in case of need. I do not need to deflect the steel cases from the Ball ammo.

Be well.
