    I have a rather small collection of guns, but feel that they cover most of my needs (Except for a Shotgun, getting a Rem. 870 soon). Just curious what you all think I should add as a must have gun.

    Here is what I have and the use they fill for me:

    Glock 23 (Range/HD/CCW)
    S&W 686 Pre-lock W/ 4 inch barrel (Range/Woods)
    Ruger SP101 (CCW/ HD for wife)
    Marlin 30/30 (Hunting/Woods)
    Ruger 10/22 (Hunting/Plinking)

    I really want your opinions, please add where they fill a gap in what I already have.

    An AR or an AK would be top of the list IMO

    An accurate .308(semi auto or bolt gun) with good optics would be next

    A .22 handgun can provide an afternoon of fun and possibly some skills enhancement for twenty dollars in ammunition expense.

    I have been looking at some .22 handguns. Kind of like the Browning.

    A nice Bolt Action .308 is on my list of to get.
     
  6. Those 2, plus an LCP or other lightweight real small gun for ankle.

    1. 1911: Everyone should have one.
    2. AR15: Everyone should have one.

    Thought about the AR, but it just is not for me.

    I really want a .308 though.

    This is your biggest hole.

    If you add a couple more perhaps an AR or Ak. Throw in a bolt action chambered in something like .270 that'll reach out further than your .30-30. And maybe a varmint bolt action in the .17-.22 caliber chambering of your choosing and you're set. :wavey:

    A Marlin 1894c .357 would go nicely with those .357 revolvers.

    The AR10, is something I have not considered. How is the accuracy, say out to 500 yards?

    A quality AR-10 with good optics and ammo will easily take you to 1000 yards

    Get a Mini 14 then. Every able bodied responsible male US citizen should have a military type rifle(Mini 14 does what a AR15 does).

    In a SHTF situation a centerfire semi auto rifle is a MUST.

    If your dead set on a .308 take a look at the M1a.

    .223 will do the job on two legged animals out to 500 yards. Ask a veteran and they will tell you.

    A good BUG, like a 642, 638, CM9 or something similar.

    Thanks for all the replies. It gives me something to ponder on.

    I use the SP101 as a bug / deep concealment gun. I had traded the SP101 for a LCR .38, but recently traded the guy back. I just did not care for the light weight gun.

    A decent pocket gun, was my line of thinking as well.
