If you could only have 3 guns for SHTF?

Title says it all, if you could only have three guns(guns you already own) for SHTF what would they be? I am talking Katrina type situation, lawlessness, hungry desperate people.

For me it would be(updated),

Glock 19
Ruger Mini 14 or AR15
Mossberg 590


How bout you? Thought this might make for a good thread.

I have always thought that these threads should require explanations of the choices made.

For instance, who carries three firearms, and their attendant mags and ammo? Why two poodle shooters that aren't the same?

Is the G19 trade bait or something? Yeah, it's popular, but it still sucks, rather like the Big Mac is popular and sucks.

I am talking guns to defend your family and property with, not to carry around. For me I choose the Glock 19 as a ideal pistol for this situation, I have lots of mags and ammo for it, I shoot it a lot and I am comfortable with it. Fire power of a full size handgun, small enough to conceal if need be.

Rifle, AR15. I cannot think of a better weapon the defend your property with. I have shot ARs a lot and have lots of mags and ammo for mine. Ruger Mini 14 simply as a backup to the AR, shoots the same ammo. Same firepower. Have lots of mags for it too. Its not picky with ammo, mine has never jammed over 3000 rounds.


Now lets hear your guys guns of choice.

Glock 19 (or G17) to leave at home for the wife, a G26 for concealed carry and an M4gery (my current's a Spike's Tactical M4LE).

Guns I already have

Benelli M1- Great fight stopper from close to mid range
Glock 17- My most trusted handgun(most mags and ammo too)
Suppressed MKII- You never know when you might have to be quiet

My Colt 6920, Glock 19, and the Remington 870. Pretty much covers all the bases.

Saiga 12- 20 round drum is going to pretty much annihilate anything in its path. You can load it with 00 for close range or slugs for longer range. Gives great versatility and wonderful carnage

Saiga 7.62 converted- AK reliability. Cheap ammo, cheap mags, proven workhorse.

AR-15 I have a few to chose from (6920, LMT, BCM). cheap ammo, cheap mags, good for short, mid, and long range

Since I always CCW, I'm going to have a pistol on me anyway, so I'm not going to count that. But I would resort to my G20 if I had to use it

My list will ALWAYS start with my primary EDC.

3rd Gen Glock 19
Smith and Wesson 642
Any trustworthy 12g shotgun or centerfire rifle. I really need to get a 6920 sometime. I never save money long enough, though. Always end up getting another handgun or handgun ammo or something first.

Not if you carry them in this condition.

Now lets hear your guys guns of choice.
You did say "Katrina." I would have left days before. Why mess around with lawlessness and desperate people?

Wading around NOLA?

Rifle: Arsenal SGL-21. I think the AK in 7.62x39 is a better choice for the lone homesteader than the AR is. The 123gr round is better against cover, cars, and won't crap out if you have to butt stroke someone with it. Yes, the AK loses at ranges exceeding 250-300m, but that is not a shot I am taking in a SD posture.

Shotgun: Benelli M4. The only M4 worth a damn in my book. Ultra reliable and fast enough.

Pistol: My customized SA Champion in .45ACP. It's flawlessly reliable. It's clad in NP3 from Robar, I can wear it all day open or concealed.

Big Mac sucks? While I have not had a Big Mac in a few months, it definitely tastes great!

My SHTF guns are:
1 - either G19/26/21 (mainly because I have all three)(plentiful ammo, and dependable)/Self defense weapon
2 - Ruger 10/22 (cheap ammo, and dependable)/Hunting weapon mostly
3 - SKS (in my case, Norinco)(cheap/plentiful ammo, and dependable)/bigger game hunting, multiple shots if needed

If I'm in a shooting match with someone beyond 100 yards, I will not be happy anyway and will if at all possible, try to bug out. Shooting matches where you are being shot at it is not cool except in games.
