One gun

The beauty of it is that we don’t have to have just one. However, this guy chose the shot gat. As I said, we don’t have to limit ourselves to one but what if? I’d have to go with my Ruger Match Champion. It doesn’t check off one specific box well but rather it’s decent at a bit of everything. Has more power for larger game than a 9mm. It’s concealable, unlike a rifle. And has an adequate range.

What say you?

    S&W 629, .44 Magnum, 4″. Powerful enough for anything in North America. Easy to reload for. Accurate enough to hit dinner plate size targets at 100 yards off-hand (well, I mean, if YOU can hit that well, it can, but you gotta concentrate).

    Just short of “Are you KIDDING ME?” for concealment, Dirty Harry being the exception. Being 6’3″ and over 250lb helps here.

    It was the only gun I didn’t put up for sale after college and before I got a Big Boy job. Used it everywhere, for everything (except birds). Quite a few coyotes, pigs, steel plates, IPSC targets and bowling pins fell to it.

    Well it didn’t specify it’s for SHTF or anything, so presuming I can take value into account, it would have to be a nice MG wouldn’t it?

    If you mean one handgun, I’d go with my Smith and Wesson Model 10 in .38 Special +P. It’s accurate, the round packs a respectable punch, with a 4″ barrel it’s easy to carry concealed, and it’s light enough to where it doesn’t feel like I’m carrying a anchor on my belt. Plus it’s easy to clean and maintain.

    A USW chassis for 10mm glock would be pretty compelling. Especially if one had a more aftermarket grip style to it. You could conceal it reasonably well with a jacket.

    Your GP100 match is a nice choice though. I shot it in Oak Ridge two years ago. A lot less flippy than my 3inch GP.

    The protagonist (played by Mel Gibson) in both “Mad Max I” and “Mad Max II The Road Warrior” carried – and used with EXTREME effectiveness – a shotgun against the bad guys.

    Take heed.

    One can relate most everything to popular culture, especially, fictional, SHTF, TEOTWAWKI, movies. Maybe not so fictional, after all …

    BTW, no need to mention the Australian gun laws that limited their choice of firearms at that time, or more recent legislation …

    I don’t know. My only concern there is that if the economy took a tragic nose dive, or the grabbers start to tax ammo, ammo costs would start to hurt. I wouldn’t want to be without a .22 for that reason, even though it wouldn’t be as efficient or capable as other choices.
