One Gun

  1. Okay here's a tough question for you, if oyu found yourself in a SHTF (*%#$ hits the fan) situation and could only bring one gun with you, which would it be? It doesn't have to be one that you own, just if you could only have one which one? :D
     
  2. Great Question. Well just by looking at my avatar and my signature it is no secret I am a Clint Eastwood fan.

    I would probably bring with me a double-action Smith & Wesson Model 29 .44-cal. Magnum revolver. (S&W don't make a single action I believe)

    Then I would blow your head clean off... :lol: :lol:
     

  3. I have never shot a .44mag pistol, but have shot it in a model 94 carbine, it is pretty stiff out of a 6+ pound rifle, I can't imagine what it is like in a handgun. Good choice though, I like your thinking. I am still not sure what I would choose.
     
  4. I may even choose a rifle or a shotgun, but I have been watching too many Clint Eastwoods so I will stick with that for now.
     
  5. This is just a what if anyways, no reason to be too serious, anything short of "plasma gun" is cool with me. It would not be difficult to getyour hands on most anything in an SHTF situation anyways.

    I just thought this would be fun, everybody has a favorite gun. It doesn't matter if it is the best choice or not, I just think this is a fun topic. A tough deciion too, only one gun, very tough choice. :D
     
  6. I have decided, here it is:

    THE THOMPSON M1 SMG .45 ACP
    The thing weighs a ton, but is an incredible little gun, hard to control the muzzle climb in full auto, but tough as nails, 12lbs of nothing but machined steel and solid walnut.
     
  7. How about the rest of you, one gun, which would it be.......

    BTW pictures are nice too, try google images, just don't make'm too big.

    Depends on where I'm going.

    Without knowing that, I would bring something that is deadly, accurate and relatively easy to carry - something in a holster.

    I think a 44 magnum revolver would do the trick.

  9. When the stuff hits the fan, I'm kind'a partial to this carbine I picked up a few months ago.

    On the other hand, when it's up close and personal, I have this nice little Dan Wesson 44 mag.

    I would have to say a Savage model 24, 30/30 over 12ga. Nothing up here I couldn't drop with the 30/30, plus a shotgun for small critters and birds. Now, that's for surviving. For keepin' riff-raff off the porch, my Bushmaster M-4 would get the nod. Flat-top, with collapsible stock, flash hider, bayonet lug, laser and entry light for close work and an Eotech holo sight with night vision settings. Even has fold-down iron sights just in case I run outta batteries :twisted: :twisted: Just had to get one loaded out once the Clinton decree went away.
