Just a poll of sorts,

You have 2 guns to choose from any caliber,scoped or not,auto,semi,bolt or single shot,Pistol, rifle or shotgun whatever.

Those guns would be the 2 guns you could have to provide protection,food etc. for you and your family.

    As I only currently own two guns it would seem my choice has been made. I own one scoped rifle chambered in .300 WSM. This obviously would be for hunting purposes. I know it's a lil on the big side for white tail, But I dream of someday hunting bigger prey. My, second is a Desert Eagle mark XIX chambered in .50ae. Two words, protection/intimidation. However, it's a beast to shoot so I can only hope that the intimidation factor can do the job 9 times out of 10. I've been looking at a scoped Smith & Wesson at my local dealer in 44mag that might be a more plausable choice for protection though.

    Shotgun- 12 gauge pump/ with rifled barel& scope!
    And maybe a .22 cal handgun. (experts say those would hurt the most being shot)

    because you didn't give any parameters at all for the question i'm going to say a .22 rifle and a .22 pistol. of all my guns, i get the most use out of my buckmark and my 10/22. cheap to shoot, accurate, share ammunition, reliable and well made. you can hunt small game with a .22 rifle, and they are easy to teach new shooters on. if i could add another it'd probably be a basic 12 gauge pump action shotgun, most likely a remington 870.

    I did not want to give any "what if" situations to guide your choices.I figure we can see the applications each person chooses by the choices made.I am just curious as to what the 2 guns anybody would pick if they could only pick 2 for whatever uses or situation.Thanks for the replies

    I would consider a .357 magnum revolver and lever action rifle.

    Not very fancy but a solid performer for defense or light hunting and sharing one type of ammo between them is a good idea.

    If you like something a little bigger i would consider the same combo in .44 mag and use .44 special as a defense load.

    My custom 25-06 Mauser and my 1911.

    Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not shooting at me!

    The old Beretta 12 gauge O/U, 'cause I love it so. And the old M1 Garand, 'cause it shoots so good.[8D]

    It must be right, or we wouldn't do it this way!

    For hunting, a 12 ga. Shotgun with different stocks and barrels. Will take down most anything on this continent, from birds (with shot) to Elk (with slugs) along with changing to a short enough stock and barrel, is concealable.

    For defense, I don't mess around.

    Pickenup, I love your home defense weapon. Is that a GE Gatling gun firing 120 Rounds per second? If only I could legally own one... I will probably register a submachine gun eventually, though.

    Oh. As for my 2 guns... I'd love an MP5K-PDW full auto, and at least a Walther PPK. However, I'd never give up any of the guns I've got.

    For basic survival, I would have to choose a knights .308 M16 style rifle for the hunting along with a HK Mark 23 pistol to handle the close encounters. Both are currently used by our military as offensive weapons. One would only hope that they could do the trick

    I guess I should post mine since I started it...

    I would choose either my Remington PSS .308(it shoots 15/16 at 200 yrds) or H&K 91(shoots .676 at 100 yrds) that would depend on why needed to choose at that time.After I chose 1 of those I would have to grab my H&K usp .45.

    The one in my right hand and the one in the other holster on my belt. No seriously a Glock 23 and a bolt .270.

    I started this just to check the pulse here in gun rights.. I am somewhat surprised to see that the vast majority of posts here are in fact NOT military type weapons. Hell,I thought all gun nuts had an arsenal of illegally modified assault weapons laying around. That what the news has implied anyway...lol,Glad to see there will be some very dependable items out there if need be. Also, it would seem we here in the gr section tend to stay with the accuracy more than firepower...that is a little surprising to me I must say.But comforting[;)]

    Thanks for all the posts

    ArmaliteA4,
    Just to let you know. Posting the pic of the mini-gun was done on a lark. I always do that when anyone asks the kind of question you did. "limiting people to a certain number of guns" You will find that most people are level headed and will use "practical" guns for survival.

    Oh, by the way, the second one would probably be a 45. [;)]

    I would choose a Beretta model 92 96 in 9mm. My other choice would be a model 94 Winchester rifle in .30-06

    I would take a Mossburg 500 combo with a scoped cantilivered rifled barrel, and a smooth barrel with front bead sight.

    For personal protection, I'd go with the Glock 26.

    Honorable mention, a scoped Browning Eclipse Hunter in 30-06.

    Lots of 12 gauges so far.....That surprises me some, but it is very interesting Pistol choices are as expected so far..[^]

    Thought it might be fun to explain my reasons and get some feedback from youall.

    .22 single shot bolt action carbine. Small, light, very, very few parts to break or lose. Can carry thousands of rounds of ammo without a tremendous effort. Can be used as a deterrent or to kill small game and dangerous critters. Can be used for longer range than even a centerfire pistol.

    .308 single shot bolt action with scope. Excellent stopping power for anything that moves in North America. Also simple with few parts to break or lose. Can be used close or long range. If the SHTF there is unlikely to be dependable medical care so I for sure don't want to risk injury for me or my family. Therefore I want a long range deterent. I for sure don't want to be the one to take a pistol to a pistol and rifle gun fight.

    An M4 with a carry handle, collapsible stock, a silencer, laser, flashlight, and night vision scope for my rifle, and a Glock 22 with select fire option, a detachable folding stock, threaded barrel and a silencer, and a whole bunch of 30 round mags for both.

    No one ever said anything about the likelihood of getting these weapons, so go large!!

    Fox,

    I agree with your choices personally.. I have several .308 rifles that all shoot under and 1 moa. One thing for sure, you can carry a helluva lot more .22 rimfire than most rifle cartriges.[:D]

    I'll have to go with a scoped .22LR/20-gauge Savage combo gun, followed by a .22 revolver. Lots of versatility and never a search for affordable ammo.
