    I bought this rifle for hunting and long range target shooting.. It is the civilian version of the military M14. Why this gun? It shoots a high power cartridge (.308). It is accurate out to 800 yards. But mostly I bought it because I wanted it. It was banned and probably will be again. It is still illegal in California. I own a Springfield 1911 handgun for self defense. Why do you need people to explain why they want a gun? Do you ask people why they play golf? Shooting is what I enjoy. It is fun to me. I can't tell you why I enjoy shooting anymore than a person can explain why they enjoy fishing. I don't feel a need to justify my hobby. To each his own.
