    for HOME defense a 12 G is hard to beat especially a BENELLI or a SAIGA

    the MI garland is a great weapon but for the same weight and much better ergonomics you can have the equally reliable FN FAL in 20 rounds of 762 NATO or a Rock River or ARMALITE AR 10

    I love M1's and FAL's but Holey Hannah they are heavy to lug around.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Re: If you had the choice of only one weapon...

    A disaster hits your area and you have 100 rounds. What weapon to bring?
    What weapon would I bring or what weapon would I rely on? Hands down a milspec AR15 with a 1/7 rifle twist and 62 grain bullets; some FMJ penetrator rounds and some soft point rounds.

    This is an excellent choice for self defense and hunting if necessary. Handguns are restrictive in terms of range and terminal ballistics beyond a fairly close range. Ditto for shotguns.

    Other action types of long guns like bolt actions and pumps are OK if that's all you have but this thread implies you have a choice. Others chose revolvers; are you kidding me? And who is dumb enough to bring a knife to a gun fight?

    This is something I prepared for after having been through three hurricanes and living near a nuclear reactor in South Florida before moving to a safer part of the country, related to potential disasters. And yes, this is one reason I moved from the south Florida area, to avoid potential disasters, natural or otherwise.

    Get a sling.

    Recoil does not bother me.

    I don't think I can pee further than you.


    And yes, I give up, I was being facetious about the Mosin. I just wanted to get people talking about it ... lol.


    In all honesty, all these specifics accuracy (the accuracy needed in this case will NOT be that needed of a canadian sniper shooting someone 2000 yards away or some such ****) and sight attachments and all this nonsense means nothing in a real the **** hits the fan situation. The availability of ammunition is very important, the weapon's ability to kill the type of game that is available to you is also important (so talking about killing elk for me is a non-point). The reliability of the weapon is also important, will it fire without jamming, minimal maintenance is always helpful.

    Oh I know, but the corrosive ammo? Unless you're carrying a cleaning kit, it doesn't matter that it wont jam, given enough time it wouldn't be safe to fire.

    As a Mosin owner myself, why get people talking about that rifle?
