Default one gun

The troops move in and take all but one of your guns. What gun would you pick for your last one. Take into consideration all needs and how the gun would best help out for your survival. You only get 1 pick from your collection and why did you choose it?

Out of my current guns I would have to choose my Remington 870 Super magnum.

Why? 20 second barrel change and you have a totally different gun, capable of varried tasks. Excellent for close range to moderate distances. Reliable and sturdy.

It would not be good for me.. I would need to keep 2, one shotgun, one rifle..

But thats not the game so I guess it would be the 30/30. it would be hard to shoot small game with it and enough of the meat be edible and not blown to Egypt, but I could take big game with it that would support me longer.

See why I would need the shotgun as well.

As I recall we had this question come up a long time ago... I'll answer the same way now as I did way back then.

I'll keep my 7.62x39 because with that one, I should be able to get all the other ones back.

My bushmastser in 223. Ammo is easy to get and with proper bullet placement you can shot large birds to big game and commies as well.

I don't have much of a choice: 30-06, 12 gauge turkey barrel/rifled slug, .22, or sons BB gun. I'll go with the 30-06.

I'd have to say my .22 rifle. I can take plenty of small game with it. It will take down a deer with a well placed shot, and I have the most ammo stockpiled for it than anything else. You can also quiet it down quite a bit if you have to.
