If semi-autos were banned, what would you carry?

    I'm thinking a 3" 686 Plus. I would hate the size and weight, but I would have to adapt.

    Given the reduced capacity I think I would be toting a BUG regularly, probably either my 642 or a snubbie .357 just for ammo compatibility.

    I don't think they can ban semi-autos. But if they did, I would still carry the ones I already have. I'm not complacent enough to say if they ban certain guns then I'll have to carry something else.

    id probably go with a pair of 3" SP101s. maybe a 4" full size with a ja frame back up as well.

    i wouldnt feel under gunned with a revolver but definitely prefer my Glock 35 :) im not too certain that a weapons ban of that magnitude would go over all that well.

    Time to take back the US if that happened. I mean get involved in elections, assuming at that time if we have them. Ever heard of a slippery slope?

    Totalitarian regimes always want you unarmed and subject to their rule. This is why we have the second amendment, and the first.

    I hate the idea of no semi-auto, but I'll still play :)

    Pretty simple for me, S&W 642.

    It would be tough to conceal, but probably a Smith & Wesson 686 4". :cool:

    If they banned semi-autos I'd have to carry a full auto.
