Maybe use low power 38 most of the time to save a few $, but should be able to get decent range with a high power 357 magnum.

    Are there better options for a jack of all trades?
    A .357 carbine is a hell of a good choice if you have access to it. I don't know what your ammunition options are, but at, 50 meters, even with 158 grain soft nose, you are going over 1100 feet per second (335 mps). That produces over 420 foot lbs of energy. I donít know what that equates to for you , but it hits like a brick thru a window. You ainít just gonna shake that off.
    In short, there are a lot of options that allow you to rapidly distribute meaningful dosages of lead to multiple targets.
    Optics are also wide open. If you are allowed, a small ted dot site could be used and create a quite formidable and fast shooting weapon.

    Having done some online shopping and seeing the price of lever actions, looks like a cheap pump action shotgun for home and a bolt action 308/30-06 or similar.

    My selection method is to walk into the local sport store and ask 'What you got used"

    I have no idea what the used market is like for you, but if you’re limited to lever, pump, and bolt actions, you might want to look into a Remington 7600 pump rifle. Stay away from anything made after Remington was acquired by Cerberus in 2007. Older 7600s are solid, reliable rifles.

    Hereís a deal thatís usually sold out (like now):

    H&R Pardner Protector 12 Gauge Pump Action 5rd 18.5" Shotgun NP1-P18 : RK Guns

    Itís a solid Remington 870 knock-off. Said to fit all Remington parts.

    Isn't the Pardner protector made in China?

    Yes, like my Cordoba C10 classical guitar. Excellent workmanship.

    Thanks for the opinions. Used market is pretty limited here, but I will watch it too.
