    Hey everyone!

    I am curious to see what everyone chooses for a rifle/shotgun to have on them while doing chores around the yard.
    I recently picked up a Ruger PC Carbine 9mm that I have been carrying with me for predators/varmints while I'm doing work around the homestead.
    Its been great! Light, accurate, small pistol mags which helps carrying a couple extras.
    Lately however I have ran into a lot of Bear droppings on my property and a some have been close to my coop so I have upped my rifle to my Rossi .45 Colt lever action with bear loads.
    Curious to see what other people use and why!

    We like a simple .22 and .16 gauge for homestead use. Most folks don't like to talk about what guns they have on a public forum, so you may get limited response to this topic.
