    Insurgency is a nasty business, when there is a will there is always a way.
    Never say a cross word or offend your enemy in the light of day.
    Be stealthy, deadly and swift when the sun goes down.

    This is always a tough question.

    For all around use in a foraging situation, I would choose an M6 Scout. The ugly duckling of Air Force and Navy survival kits. I actually have used my M6 for rabbit, squirrel, and dove. Enough to keep me fed for the 5 days that I decided to challenge myself.

    For two legged game, I would go with the AK. If I had my choice, I would take a Siaga 20" barrel in 7.62x39. Try one with Wolf Ammo at 300 meters. See if you can't put 30 rounds into a torso sized target with iron sights. It's not a battle rifle, but that can be fixed. Just search around here on GUNCO for guidance.

    For home defense, 12 Ga. Remington 870 or Mossberg 500. Any model. Own a hacksaw, and a copy of "Red Dawn".....Now seriously; I get asked this question all of the time. People ask about handguns, EBR's, etc. "My friend told me this", or "my brother-in -law told me that". Simple question back is "How often will you practice?". If I get a blank look or a stupid answer, my response is: "12 Ga., Remington 870 or Mossberg 500. If you run out of ammo, it makes an effective club".

    End of conversation.

    The crappy thing about the 12 ga, is it would be pritty hard to travel with a good stock of ammo on you. But at the same time, it is one of the more commonly used weapons, so there would be plenty of it around.
    If your in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

    .308 FAL or something like it is what you will see come in as a rifle. 9mm smgs and side arms too.

    I will have PLENTY to feed my UZIs and AR10 with.

    I can't get my hand on a Tavor so I'll stick with my AR15. Although an Uzi would be something that I wouldn't pass up if I had the opportunity.

    it's hard for me to narrow it down to just one weapon. iv'e got 2 ar's, 3ak's a 12 gdg remington riot gun the list goes on.. i like the ar for distance and the ak for the sheer killing power the gauge dont get to close. i would be packing my 357 i know that.depending on the shtf i would try to orgainize a group of friends or family and arm them and start sqeezin..........

    Thanks. Yep. To me, it's fun to dream up what gun would be best for this or for that, but if you don't actually have it at the time, then.......
