I went to the gun shop to buy a 22/45 lite Ruger pistol, it is one of those thing that I had to have after handling it. The gun is so light seem less then 1/2 the weight of my other Ruger pistols, and for Hiking every ounce counts. Empty weighs about the same as my five seveN but the 22 long rifles bullets are so much cheaper. While I was there the owner told me that he just got a new Tavor rifle in, I already heard a lot about it so after looking it over I bought both the pistol and the Tavor. The Tavor is newes battle rifle of Israel, it is a bull pup design and has a 16 1/2" barrel even though it is shorter then an m4 with the stock collapsed. What sold me on the rifle is unlike my FS2000 it has a long clean picatinny rail which will allow me to configure it any way I want in a couple of minutes for any occasion. I will keep a Eotech with NV capability on it, then I can switch between PVS-14 night vision scope or 3x magnifier, I can also put either a green or infrared Laser in front of the Eotech. In a worst case situation the iron sites co-witness perfectly with the Eotech. I can also put a light on the side rail. Nothing beat a bullpup in close quarters you can even open a door with it shouldered.
