Pondering a new carbine...

I've been doing some gun hunting and stumbled across this even though it isn't a carbine...

http://www.remington.com/products/fi...5_tactical.asp

A Remington model 7615. Its a tactical pump action .223 carbine with telescoping stock... well, you can read for yourself. Its something different that I haven't seen out here at all. I can pick one up for just under $1000 CAD

or

A cammo bushmaster in .223 with a telescoping stock and full floating barrel for $1332 CAD


The Remington is a non-restricted weapon meaning I can take it anywhere I want
The Bush would be a restricted weapon so to the range and back only.


Thoughts?

Mofugger, how well would the remington do against zombies?

I have heard good things about the Remington pump rifles.

What are you wanting to do? Just range time? Hunting?

a little of both. A .223 would be a lot more appropriate for the little island white tails we have out there compared to my .303.

Add something to my collection that would be good for my Bug Out / SHTF bag

I've been eyeing a Remington R15. Looks like a great SHTF/Hunting rifle. Availible in .223, too.

Excuse my ignorance.... but why would you want a pump rifle for the same price (close enough) as a ar-15?

An AR is a restricted rifle... meaning it goes to the range and back only. If you get caught leaving the most direct route with a restricted weapon, do not pass go, do not collect 200 bucks. Go directly to jail.

The pump .223 is a non-restricted meaning I could drive around all day with it in my lap if I wanted to.

The pump is also something I've never seen where I live. Its new and different around here. Read my original post.

Would a mini 14 be a restricted rifle?

Can you go hunting with a "restricted" rifle?

Then personally I would go for the pump. I would rather have a rifle that could go everywhere, than a fun range rifle.

IIRC, No. Range and back via a set route.
