Instead of asking what firearms we own that are most reliable, let's ask which ones we carry into a dangerous situation. Think one rifle, one shotgun, a pistol, and possibly a back-up pistol or revolver. If you had to grab your stuff and go, you have decisions to make. Think of the New Orleans disaster. Tell us which of your guns are the few, the proud, the ones you will live and die with. It would also be interesting to see how the weapons are equipped.

My picks are:

VEPR K: EO-Tech on BP-02 mount. Thunderbear Tactical sling.
Win 1300 Defender: Pisol grip. Surefire forearm light. Sidesaddle. Tac-Star sling.
Sig P229: Trijicon night sights. Surefire combat light.
Back-up: Kel-Tec 3AT.

Probably one of these. I did have the bushy with me during the aftermath of Rita, but luckly I was in a good rural neighborhood and the most dangerous thing was displaced racoons and possums

SAR1 or Bushy AR 14.5 with EoTech
GLOCK 19 or Kimber TLE w/ M6
Winchester 1300 w/tac light and sidesaddle

First of all, I wouldn't knowingly go into a dangerous situation. Though that might seem a gratuitous answer, the statement of the problem begs it: the situation is given as dangerous.

So, with this foreknowledge, it would depend on the nature of the situation (we're assuming I can't avoid it). I keep things simple to avoid large choices of weapons and the "Let's see, well use this for this and that for that."

I can take a Marlin 1894 lever rifle in .44 mag., and a S&W 629, 3" barrel in my pocket; backup is a Bond Arms derringer in .44 mag. Add in an assortment of .44 mag and .44 Special ammo to cover a variety of situations.

If we're talking TEOTWAWKI, anticipating possible tactical situations, then it's an AR-10 carbine, collapsible, ACOG, sidearm is a Browning Hi Power, and backup is a Kahr MK9.

i have too many choices. I would say it would be my RRA Entry Tactical and my Springfield 1911. Both most reliable and accurate weapons.

This G-17 and either the M1A or the AR depending on the sit.

I strap a suitcase nuke to my back and charge the enemy !!

Yeeeeeeehaaaaawww !!!

Seriosuly - this is once again one of those questions that depends on context.

Am I going into battle against conventional forces. Am I running across the street to help the neighbors against an armed intruder? Did Soviet paratroopers take over the high school? Are armored elephants coming over the mountains tomorrow morning? Will I be carrying gear for an extended march through mother nature, or driving around in an air-conditioned mercedes?

As a general all-purpose SHTF package, I'd take my midlength AR with Elcan, and a 1911. (If I'm carrying an AR and a pistol, the shotgun isn't worth the extra weight, IMO).

depends on which way I intend to go
towards the city:
AR carbine
Glock 23c
no shotgun, it is just useless dead weight if you have a carbine

for the hills:
Glock 23c or FM Hi Power
Mossberg 500A turkey gun for game getting.

EDIT: or I could just duct tape an M21 AT mine to my helmet and turn myself into an optically guided foot propelled anti tank projectile.

Don't own a shotgun currently, but will be picking up a Remington 11-87 soon.

To knowingly go into a dangerous situation like say a hurricane.
That would make me carry an issued M16 or M4. Possibly an M9.

Other than that, why would I knowingly go into a dangerous situation? Maybe to rescue a family member or good friend I guess.

somthing along the lines of a double stack 45 1911 or a glack 22.

This is my third line, BOL, battery but it resembles my first line (mine) and second line (wife's) batteries.

1. I'll take the generic Bushmaster carbine in the back. Add 8 30 rounders and 4 20 rounders of XM193. My first line has a M2, not a S.P.O.T.
I'll open the ammo can that the 10/22 butt is resting on, and grab a few 4 pocket bandoleers of LC XM193 to go.

2. the Winchester 1300 with side saddle and elastic stock shell carrier and Surefire Nitrolon jerry rigged. 6 Federal tactical 00 buck in the tube. 6 rifled slugs side saddle, 6 more 00 buck on the stock. 2 25 round bandoleers each with 15 00buck and 10 slugs

3. Glock 19 and 26. Half a dozen extra 15 round mags with 115gr +P+ JHP.

Simple, effective, ubiquitus. I have their twins at home for me and the wife.

Link Posted: 1/7/2006 4:05:46 PM EST
I know one thing for sure - I'm not taking my accurate M48 Yugo Mauser, as its 5-round cap and its bolt-action would make me a sitting duck for the sixth zombie, nor am I hauling the 12+ lb bulk of the JLD PTR-91 with 20-rounders and the Bushnell Elite 3200 10 x 40, nor will I hump the 9+ lbs of the Garand for the same reason. No, I'm going for the AR 16" Carbine with the YHM light accessories, all five of my mags, and my Czech CZ 52. I'll take my Buck straight blade, my CRKT folder, and as much ammo as I can stand - plus my ultimate BU gun, the Kahr PM-9.

Actually, with my sub-par physical condition for long-term action and my advanced age (41 on Tuesday ), I'd probably wait for trouble to come to me with the PTR. It's a SHOOTER, and I'd be taking out the Undead via cranial vault-shots from UNGODLY distances.
