Not sure where to put this, but I'm guessing here. What is a reliable, good quality, easy to maintain, all purpose gun for the farm? I'm open to all suggestions since I may eventually get more than one, but I greatly prefer rifles to handguns. I am good with rifles, but am more likely to shoot myself than anything else with a handgun. Recommendations for a nice gun for pheasant hunting would also be great. Any predators would be those found in Texas (though I do prefer to use non-lethal means on native animals). I do appreciated closed sights, but they are not neccessary.
