Okay, so you have a couple few AR15s(or other rifles) locked up in your gun safe. Your rifles are all sighted in and you have magazines pre-loaded for all.
It's Sunday afternoon and you hear a great disturbance outside. It's a bunch of gangbangers doing a random drive-by shooting at everyone's homes. You have to do something to stop them. They might kill someone(even yourself or family member) before the police arrive. You look towards your gunsafe.
What are you going to do?
What rifle out of all your collection do you choose?

Ok, I'll play along. I guess it would be the RPK with a couple of 75rnd drums loaded with the old steel core ammo. [}:D]

M1 Garand with black-tip M2. When you care enough to send the very best. Then it's all over but the shouting. I'm actually surprised at all the people around here that live in shitty neighborhoods and decide to stay there. Heck I live in the LA area and with the exception of certain areas we don't have near the problems that all the folks seem to have other places.

Either the G3 or (as VA-gunnut said...) the RPK. If they're in a car, I'd want something a little bigger than a 5.56 to punch through doors and windows with enough 'oomph' left to do some damage to the occupants.

AK with a drum in 7.62

What, no one will grab thier AR15? I have a bushy already for that situation. I also have two mags w/ green tip ammo already to shoot through those car doors. If I had time to plan for the attack, then it is my one of my sprigfields, Either the M1A bush gun or the SAR 48. I just love that .308. I always piss off the range master at work when I take it to practice at the range.

Reington 870. No question.

Loads that have shown acceptable performance against auto glass and auto body panels are: Federal .223 55Gn Trophy bonded bear claw 150 - 165Gn Polymer tipped .308 loads Lapua Mega Spire point 123Gn 7.62x39mm Remington 110Gn JSP .30 Carbine Rottweil 12Gauge 2 3/4" Brennekke slugs Buckshot and most .223 rifle bullets offer very poor performance against a vehicle mounted threat.

I wouldn't want my fun guns taken away. I would probably use my Winchester Model 94 Trapper in .45 Long Colt. Just like in the wild west.[;)]

I would grab my Remmy 760 Gamemaster .30/06. That would put some nice holes in the car, don't ya' think? [;)]

AT6... ...or the M14

SR25 or the M1A.

One m16 or ar15 with m203, one with a masterkey shotgun. Two berretta m9 or 92fs sidearms, tons of mags, pouches, leg holsters, frags, ammo, body armor, and night vision. I don't know about you guys, but I have a lot of paperwork to do and pennys to save before im ready. The SHTF better wait for me! [:D]

My SKS with Dragonov stock, Red dot scope, and 45 round magazine. Throw some bump fire at them.

M1A----pick off the driver first----then shoot the rats as they scramble----one-by-one.
Link Posted: 8/11/2003 6:59:19 AM EDT
I would hope that I had at least one twenty round mag filled with steel core .308 to shoot out of my Springfield M1A. Since I do not need to hump ammo and other gear, I would pick up that rifle and send the devil a few more souls to make big rocks into little rocks.

I don't have anything.....So, I just call 911 and go hide under the bed.

I'll pull out my son's full-auto rubber band firing rifle and aim for the EYES! [sniper] If that doesn't work I'll use my M4 clone or the HK USC with some .45 Super ammo.

For those of you who have never lived in So central or East Los Angeles, most bangers are cowards and by the time you heard it they would be gone at 80mph, I would call 911 first and give them discription then call my real estate agent and get my family out. If I had to fight I would choose the weapon I am most accurate with to reduce the chance of hitting anyone else, remember more people are killed in the world with 22lr than any other round, if you can hit your target (in this case it would be a head shot) any round would do damage, I know this is hypothetical and it is a good idea to think wwyd but, how about something a little more realistic?
Link Posted: 8/11/2003 3:50:43 PM EDT
M1A, then Benelli M1 S90, followed by Hamilton Beach Blender set for "Pulp", the my Swiss made cheese grater!! Semper Example
Link Posted: 8/11/2003 5:06:08 PM EDT
I would fire the claymores hidden in my pink flamingo yard ornaments and cut loose with my M1 Garand with AP 30-06. If anyone is left alive to hear the ching, they will forget about it when I cut loose with my M4 backup.

Is this true??? I'd say that by the time you get to your safe, unlock it, and run back to the door/window, they'd be long gone. If i kept all my guns loaded at all times, it'll be a toss up between the SAR-1, due to 7.62 penetration (during the north hollywood shootout, the rounds went straight through the cop-cars. But then again: [i]"...is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our bursts, nor the smoke we make...We know it is the hits that count..."[/i] In other words, i'd choose whatever i'm more accurate with, one of my ARs
Link Posted: 8/11/2003 8:22:58 PM EDT
I think an M1-A would shred them to pieces. Or like someone has said before, a M1 Garand with AP ammo. Those bastards would be in one big world of hurt. If not any of the above, an RPG should do them in nicely.
Link Posted: 8/11/2003 9:00:03 PM EDT
Hmm.. I would have to chose my good old ar-15 with some ss109s. However. what is the law on this.. If you did stop the bangers by wounding our killing one, would you be treated with respect or the butt of a rifle by the fbi? I have also always wondered about this question. If you were pumping gas at a gas station and it started to be robbed.. could u pull out your weapon and defend the store?
Link Posted: 8/11/2003 10:49:47 PM EDT
i would run with the car and piss in the gass tank on the run. then when it broke down i would shackle the bastards and make them listen to toby keith for 24 straight. then salt their eyes and leave'em for the vultures

Probably just my RRA M4 and Glock 22, since the Chief took the M14. Not sure which ammo, probably use M193 or M855 to take out the engine, and then move to the Black Hill 60 gr Soft Point loaded in my H&K SA80 Mags and Hornady 60 Gr TAP. [:D] M193 does a good in taking out engines. Shot up one of my brother's spare 390 Ford Cast Iron blocks with it and M855. The M855 only had slightly more penetration.
Link Posted: 8/12/2003 12:23:29 AM EDT
Provided I could respond in time. I would grap my MAC 90 with 75 round drum. I am going for visual effect on TV when they show the car crashed on the side of the road with lots and lots of broken glass, blood, and bullet holes.

LOL! That's my thoughts exactly. The day gang members are going up and down my road in a running gun battle, I will say the world has pretty much ended anyway. But for the sake of answering the question, I would either go with my Bushmaster 16" HBAR with EOTech and 20 rd USGI mags loaded with 55 gr Federal Trophy Bonded Bear Claw......or.......Springfield M1A NM with 20 rd USGI mags full of one of the 165 gr Bonded SP's. -Charging Handle

I would immediately step outside of my house and tersely say,"Excuse, youngmen, I am very disappointed in your behavior! You stop this nonsense at once! I will not accept this reckless abandon and demand that you give me and my neighbors an apology! I am VERY disappointed in you! How dare you!" How's that?

Hey....what happened to the 8th Boom? I'd use my neighbor's childern. Those little peckers could bug anyone to death.

Something that wouldn't go through the car and kill my neighbors' kids. No fun, I know, but at that range I could probably notch a few head shots with my .22 target rifle. That way, when it got to court, my attny could say that I was being responsible. Then I would move because every knucklehead in a 50 mile radius would be shootin at MY house.
