    For some, it might be a Ruger 10/22. For others... A lever action or bolt gun of some sort. Mine has almost always been some variant of Kalashnikov. What is the one rifle you consider your go-to/SHTF/must-have in time of need weapon?

    My AK47. Power, capacity, and enough accuracy to get the job done. I love the feel of the AK platform.

    Depends, if its a animal in the yard, I'm most likely going to grab my custom mauser in 338.


    If its a bump in the night/going into trouble, I'm reaching for an AR. I know it the best after 10+ years in the army, and there isn't a gun made I'd rather have in my hands if I'm headed towards a fight.

    If we have to pick rifles, I only own one, so that means M1 Garand for me.

    At the first sign of trouble, though, I'd run for my 870.

    I'd have to say my AR15. It is what I am most comfortable shooting and it is what I am most proficient with.

    It depends, some situations Id like to have the 870 and others the AR.

    It's my only semi-auto rifle that's not a .22, so it'd be for whatever it needs to be for, it'd do it to the best it's ability, or I'd keep shooting.

    Double Star AR-15 with Aimpoint. It will even eat steel case ammo.

    I must be really out of the loop. My 1st choice would be my K98 Mauser.

    I'd have no problem with grabbing my Mini14 or my 30/30 . Love my M1 Garand but the truth is it's old and is no longer reliable enough or accurate enough to trust my life with when I have other more reliable and accurate choices. More than likely though it would be the Mini 14 as it's a newer 580 series mini that holds more rounds than the 30/30.

    One of these:

    AR-HBAR
    M1A
    Marlin 1894CB in .44 magnum

    depending on the situation.

    The ONLY logical choice:

    There are others.....

    but the Norinco is hands down my first choice, and the ONLY one that I know works 100% round after round!
