Nothing wrong with a carbine. Better balance and swing then a long barreled beanfield gun. With modern propellants and projectiles, they are better and more accurate then the long guns. They get my vote.

Years ago I had several. I only have one left. It's an Eddystone Model of 1917. More commonly known as a P-17 Enfield. I kept it because it's in great condition and it also has a bayonet that looks like it was never issued. 

Probably my favorite one was a 96 Swede. It shot really good and was in very good condition. I wish I would never have let that one go.

I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.
