I have a rather small collection of guns, but feel that they cover most of my needs (Except for a Shotgun, getting a Rem. 870 soon). Just curious what you all think I should add as a must have gun.

Here is what I have and the use they fill for me:

Glock 23 (Range/HD/CCW)
S&W 686 Pre-lock W/ 4 inch barrel (Range/Woods)
Ruger SP101 (CCW/ HD for wife)
Marlin 30/30 (Hunting/Woods)
Ruger 10/22 (Hunting/Plinking)

I really want your opinions, please add where they fill a gap in what I already have.

An AR or an AK would be top of the list IMO

An accurate .308(semi auto or bolt gun) with good optics would be next

A .22 handgun can provide an afternoon of fun and possibly some skills enhancement for twenty dollars in ammunition expense.

I have been looking at some .22 handguns. Kind of like the Browning.

A nice Bolt Action .308 is on my list of to get.

Those 2, plus an LCP or other lightweight real small gun for ankle.

1911: Everyone should have one.
AR15: Everyone should have one.

Thought about the AR, but it just is not for me.

I really want a .308 though.

This is your biggest hole.

If you add a couple more perhaps an AR or Ak. Throw in a bolt action chambered in something like .270 that'll reach out further than your .30-30. And maybe a varmint bolt action in the .17-.22 caliber chambering of your choosing and you're set. :wavey:

Get both in one package. AR-10 :wavey:

A Marlin 1894c .357 would go nicely with those .357 revolvers.

The AR10, is something I have not considered. How is the accuracy, say out to 500 yards?

A quality AR-10 with good optics and ammo will easily take you to 1000 yards

Get a Mini 14 then. Every able bodied responsible male US citizen should have a military type rifle(Mini 14 does what a AR15 does).

In a SHTF situation a centerfire semi auto rifle is a MUST.

If your dead set on a .308 take a look at the M1a.

.223 will do the job on two legged animals out to 500 yards. Ask a veteran and they will tell you.

A good BUG, like a 642, 638, CM9 or something similar.

Thanks for all the replies. It gives me something to ponder on.

I use the SP101 as a bug / deep concealment gun. I had traded the SP101 for a LCR .38, but recently traded the guy back. I just did not care for the light weight gun.

A decent pocket gun, was my line of thinking as well.

12 ga. pump
semi auto centerfire
bolt centerfire
.22 handgun

You already said you are planning on a 12 ga. and a .22, so that leaves the rifles. As mentioned, you could get a M1A or AR10 to fill both roles. I doubt a FAL or PTR91 would be accurate enough to be someone's most accurate long gun. I don't know about a SCAR.

Ok, been looking at the M1a. Is there much difference in distance and accuracy between the 22 and 18 inch barrels?

1) 1911 in .45 - everyone should own one
2) 9mm - ditto
3) 870 12ga - ditto
4) Black Gun - ditto
5) .308 - ditto
6) .22 hand gun - ditto
7) single action revolver - ditto
8) 10mm - because you haven't got one

Good job on the 30/30, everyone should have one of those as well.

Thanks, I love my 30/30. It is very fun to shoot.

I would say at .22 handgun should be first on the list. Then work on a shotgun or a 1911.

Another Glock 23 or a Glock 27.
