    If you had to defend yourself and family in a situation like this what weapon? Buy semi-auto tactical shot or another ar15, ak47, what would choose?

    WASR10 with about 20 standard caps. Then for up close and personal .357 mag with a few S/L.

    Just kidding, trusty AR is a real bullet hose.

    Garden hose. Unless I was highfalutin then just turn on the sprinklers!

    Well, I'd say what I want and what I have, but I am against "putting it all out there" on the internet.

    A nice 12GA shotgun is always appreciated, though. As someone else said, "they don't call 'em riot guns for nothin'!"

    These rioters and looters just need a friend. I would give them a hug, and invite them in for some s'mores.

    12 Ga sawed off shotgun with 00 Buckshot. Plus a Glock 21 chambered in 45ACP. I might go because I don't have a choice, but I ain't going easy. Also, my EDC G33 chambered in 357sig will be close at hand. Plus, plus, plus. Additionally, I've had several friends that have said they are bringing their families and equipment to my house if the SHTF. I really don't blame them, and they are certainly welcome.

    My AR15 with the surefire 100 round mag should do the trick

    I'll stick with my high-cap pistols for mobility...I have plenty of extra mags too...

    If that doesn't work and they overrun the place, I'd like to touch off a low yield dirty nuke bomb...sure, I'll get fried too but I'll take as many of them with me as I can.

    I'm digging a moat, filling it with alligators.

    Not because there's riots. I was planning on doing that anyway.

    Nothing says don't let your dog crap on my lawn like hungry alligators.
