    Ok.... We laid up a 'senerio,' a few weeks ago on this forum,"Your Allowed ONE Handgun." There has been pretty good response, and interesting response i might add.

    Remember.... This is "purely for fun," BUT... it seems to get you to think as well. Most of us own a ton of firearms, and keep finding "new ones," all the time. We some how have convinced ourselves we need a cazillion weapons to do this that and the other.

    I admit, there are certain firearms that do 'this job,' or 'that job,' perhaps better than would a different firearm.

    But there is something about "narrowing all this down," that appears to me, to make one stop and think about just what he's got, and just what all it really will do. Just how many uses he can really get out of, "JUST ONE GUN." Even help us perhaps, to become more 'proficient,'more confident, in a certain firearm we seem to neglect, or think we ought to sell even!

    Well, new senerio PART 2....

    Now there are NO handguns. NONE!
    For some reason in our senerio, we have lost all rights to our handguns, and all that is left, 'period,' are long guns.

    This long gun, must meet "ALL," your needs, as far as survival goes. e.g. In as much as we would never want to have to use a gun in a SD situation, this gun must meet that need for you, and also in our senerio, there are tremendous food shortages, you may have to 'hunt to feed the family'..... In short, this "ONE LONG GUN," must meet all your firearm needs! Period!

    Long Gun in this senerio means:

    Rifle
    Shotgun
    Muzzle Loader

    Include Brand name, caliber, and, (ammo, if applicable).

    Remember....."YOU ONLY HAVE ONE!"

    And don't be to quick to think some guy's choice is stupid... :)Remember the 'entire senerio!!!'


    Again, I'll Go first:

    New England Arms Handi Rifle...... It comes with a number of barrel/caliber combo's.....you can have 12 gauage, or most any barrel from 22-250, to 45-70 Govt. At only about $80.00 per barrel.
    This is "ONE GUN," with many different barrels to swap back and forth as the situation/s calls for. So this is "my choice" with the 12 gauge barrel, and the 308 rifle barrel.


    How about you?
    ONLY ONE!

    Nobody else will say it, so I will.
    Bushy shorty, AR-15.
    16" HBAR, no muzzle, A3 with removable handle. A2 stock.
    Q3131A, lots of NIW colt 20 round and 30 round mags. LBV to carry 'em.

    Perfect for :
    Home defense
    Homeland defense
    Will kill any animal in N.A. (may not be pretty, but it will do)
    Can be carried all day, with plenty of extra ammo
    And keeping the king of England out of your face.

    Plus it will scare the piss out of those pukes that made me choose only one gun.;f

    i would have to say a rem 870 12ga. it has been my most vesatile firearm. taking game from quail and rabbits all the way up to deer. i went for years with it as my only gun, so if i had to go back to one gun *shudder* that would be it.

    i would probably opt for 3 barrels. 18.5" smooth for SD, 26" smooth and a 22" rifled to get a little extra range with slugs.

    I would have to say my SKS M59. Ammo is cheap. It's relativly accurate. And it's tough as nails.

    I love my FAL (STG-58)! The .308 hits hard with good long-range ability and the adj. gas system means I can shoot the worst surplus/hand reload without a FTF. Also tough and heavy enough to use as club for the close-in fighting...

    Tough choice.
    My HK91 would probably get the nod.

    I second the remington 870 12ga. Rifles are okay but not as versatile like a good old shotgun that can adapt almost to any issues with just an ammo change.

    This is what they would face when they came to take my handguns...

    On the plus side, Scott H. won't have to pack any cleaning supplies. ;a


    Me, I would take my Benelli M1S90 12 ga. with birdshot, buckshot and slugs.

    I would have said my AR, but its too damn tricky to shoot birds in flight. ;) ;f

    Best of all worlds - .22 over 12 gauge single shot.

    I would take a three barrel drilling.

    One .30 caliber rifle barrel over two 12ga SxS shotgun barrels.

    "calibuse"? That would imply surrender, there is no surrender when it comes to our rights.

    Then lets assume your employer gets a foriegn contract and you are going to spend a year or so in a country where you can only have one long arm.

    In such a case, a drilling will suffice for hunting. Calibers and gauges would depend on the game available. Probably a .22 barrel for small game, a .30 cal or 7mm for deer, and one or two shotgun barrels for fowl.

    I'm not implying anything.. the word 'calibuse' means.."jail."

    I know what it means. I'm just saying that it's usually not SOP to take a corpse to jail.



    Sixgun_Symphony, now that's an interesting senerio. If I can have any rifle, I'd have to go with a Handi rifle also. Make mine in .17 HRM, .308 and 12 gauge. If I have to pick from one I already own, I'll take my STG58 (.308)every time.

    ScottH,

    No offense intended hoss... but if the 'law' ever does come to take away my wood and metal... I ain't dying for 'em.

    My life is worth more than a hunk of steel, and so are the lives of those dewly appointed to do their job, wether they are wrong or not.

    As i said.. "no offense." :)
