Toss up between the USP .45 and GLOCK 21.

Given the parameters you describe, I'd choose a Glock 19.

Can you even own a gun where you are in the United Kingdom? If you're talking handguns, then I'd go with my G17rtf2 "Gillie."

Yep, g29 will get pretty much anything done from ccw to hunting.

Are we talking Mad Max or just some strange unimaginable laws......that might be getting passed in the near future?

For handguns its a toss up between the Glock 17 or a 26.

Would you carry this 870 on your person tomorrow? Next week? Next month? 5 years from now when we haven't had Armageddon?

i have always said that if i were limited to one firearm, it would be a 12ga pump. both would ideally be a 20" mossberg 535 3.5" chamber with a ventrib and choke tubes, preferably with a slug barrel as well but i can do ok with rifled slugs to 100 yards.

one rifle would be a LRB M25 built to national match specs with a 1:11 twist barrel and a vortex razor hd 5-20x scope.

pistols would be something along the lines of a Glock 20 with a .22lr upper.

I would take my Sig P226 SC 9MM. Night sights, SRT trigger, 15/18/20 round magazines. Most accurate 9MM I own there's a reason the Seals use Sigs.

Some kind of modern battle rifle. Why? Because if that is the scenario I am forced to live under, it's 1776-time.

If I lived somewhere like that I would move. If I can't move, it's because there's nowhere better or someone is forcing me to stay put.

I would take a shotgun over a handgun anyday. I grew up hunting and I have seen a lot of game taken with a shotgun but never a handgun. I know it is possible to take a deer with a handgun but it would be a lot easier with a shotgun and it would be almost impossible to hit a running rabbit or squirrel with a handgun. I chose a single barrel because of it's simplicity but a double barrel or pump would be good too.

If it was just going to be a hunting gun, absolutely make it a shotgun.

I guess a telescoped TC handgun in .22 hornet with silencer.

Why? So I can then use it to get MORE guns from my opponents cause one gun just ain't enough in such a hostile environment.

I agree. That's all you need anyway. Besides, crazy joe said so, so it must be true.
