What would you choose? Let us know in the comments section below.

    General Patton said it best ” M1 Garand was the grestest battle rifle made”. I agree to this date in the hands of a skilled user it still is.

    I want to be realistic and look only among the firearms that I actually own. I DO own the combination that the # 1 commenter has and I carry the Kimber Ultra Carry all day, every day. But, if it was and “end of days” kind of deal, my Remington 1100 would be a better all-around weapon. More versatile and more useful in diverse situations.

    My choice: Springfield M1A set up in duct taped magazines that allow you to reload 3 times before empty. the 308 sized Cartridge does enough damage both close and farther away. You want to engage the enemy atlonger distances so they can not get close enough to you to inflict damage on your position. I’m old school Army and you can keep those 5.56 rounds. unless your doing CQB. 7.62 Ammo is very easy to get just like the 5.56 crowd.Shotgun Idea is perfect for any body who doesn’t have experience in shooting..it simple point and shoot weapon for 50 yards or less with #4 buck or #00 buck. Slugs? not recommended for point and shoot. Find a Hardware store and get tons of boxes with #8 1/2″ screws and you duct tape those boxes to sticks of dynomite for Fragmentation explosives.
