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

    I really don't see a $1k (~price of AR) AK doing near 500m. I think the average Joe is something like 200 with it. Someone without training probably will not hit anything over 100m with an AK, they'd be better with the AR. Without hotloads, nice sights and a sweet heavy barrel, I don't see the AK being useful at stand-off range.

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

    I'd want an AA-12. Zero Recoil, ultra reliable, never even have to clean it, and in a short range firefight nothing puts more lead on target.



    Although depending on the nature of this hypothetical WROL situation it could be a bad pick. Long duration and that ammo limit will be the end of me, unless I can use the AA-12 to find more or another gun. Without slugs I don't see it being effective for hunting.

    Runner up: Glock 21 carried concealed. It sure holds alot of 45 ACP's.

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

    If I can have replacement parts or a no-break guarantee (because there would not be many out there), I'll take an m249 and feed it AR mags. If replacement ammo wasn't an issue, an m2 .50 or mk19. What about a recoiless rifle (anti-tank), 100 rnds of that could go a long way.

    I can hit a vehicle at 1km with the m2 iron, single-shot like a sniper rifle. A few rnds and a person is probably in trouble. The mk19 also finishes someone at a km pretty quickly, but I like the m2's punch. TD wouldn't be too happy at 600m with .50s slamming around him, let alone if he was outside that. We can pick any weapon, right?

    I would have to go with something that can take a beating as it may be awhile. Simple to maintain and good for defense or hunting. I also want something light weight that will not waist to much ammo.

    In the end I went with the lever 3030. It's light with a good rate of fire easily controlled and good for general defense or hunting.
    To be honest with you, I'd likely go with an AA-12 automatic shotgun. I've never been much of a marksman, but you don't really need to be one with a shotgun.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    That would be inefficient. If you carry an intimidating vibe, then no shots need be fired. Wear tight clothing to show off your muscles and carry a shiny revolver. Carry a charismatic aurora and hopefully gain a few loyal members of a small crew. Then you don't even have to shoot because a single will not mess with a group. Packs always kill better than individuals and human instincts will avoid groups of alone and threatened.

    Well, that depends on what kind of rounds I've got. If I have AK's I will take the AK. If I have 9mm rounds I will have a 9 mm pistol.

    This is why I find a resume superior to a stockpile. I'm good with security, guns and food. I'm probably the best shot, so I get weapon of choice. I think your selection of clothing and weapon is strange, so you needn't worry about me taking that stuff.

    My .38 snub would be part of a go-bag I would drop off with my father when I delivered my children to him on my way to report to the armory.
