Well, I’m a gunsmith, and very opiniated, so here’s my opinion.

If you go for a lever action i’d suggest the Marlin 336 in 30-30. If you go for a Winchester instead, try to get one that is older than 1964, or newer than 1984, Winchester changed a few things during that period(stamped sheet metal lifter for example), if you can’t find one that old and have to buy a newer one, HAVE THE LIFTER REPLACED IMMEDIATELY!

Bolt action: Remington 700 or a Savage, enough said. 22-250 is a good all around cartridge, or a .308.

Automatic: Stoner AR-10 (SR-25) 7.62x51(.308).

But, all that depends on what they’ll let you own there.

By the Way, I’d go with the skydiving.
