Survival Guns?

What is your list of survival guns, this list would include pistols, rifles, and shotgun. Lets say you can list two pistols, three rifles and one shotgun. So post a comment and tell what you think is the best list of survival guns.
My List
Pistols= Glock 19-9mm and S&W .38 Special

Rifles= Ruger Mini-14 and Springfield SOCOM 16 and Ruger 10/22

Shotgun= Remington Model 870 Express

I know a lot of people don't like the mini-14 but I do, for 50-75 yard shots it works very well and I have had one for years and love it. Tell me what you like and why.


  1. Hey Pete.I to own and absolutely love my mini,never once had jam or failure to fire with all kinds of ammo.The ones purchased over the counter are mini-14, ak-47,psl 51,rossi matched pairs 12ga-.223,ruger 10-22,ruger p-89,charter arms .38.I personally recommend everyone purchase part of their arsenal through private sale if legal,it is here in Indy those I would tell no one about.


  2. Sorry the why is all are very accurate and shoot commonly available ammo.If they aren't accurate I trade out ASAP.Next purchase will be black powder .50 cal,.22 air rifle.Why air quiet,BP you can make yourself.


  3. Pete,
    Sure you'd want a heavier cal to reach out and touch someone but I think you're selling the Mini 14 short on it's range.
    I have consistenly fired 1" groups at 100yds with both of mine using my own handloads.
    You can't do much better than a Mini 14 for close to moderate range. With 30 round mags you can lay down some serious cover fire.
    Or if you want to get a little more serious check these out..
    Seems you've got your basics covered on guns but I guess I'm old school when it comes to Handguns.
    If a Handgun cal don't start with a .4 in front or "mag" at the end then all your doin' pissin' off the bad guy...
    You might rethink that 9mm and .38 ;)

  4. Rifles -- DPMS AR15 LWC with a Trijicon 3.5 red dot, Surefire fore-end (straight not vertical grip), M1A1 with a folding stock, Steyr SSG 69 with a Springfield 3rd Generation 3.5-10x54 mm scope (1000 yard gun)

    Pistol -- Glock 17 (3rd generation so a light will mount on it) and tritium night sights, Para-Ord P14 with tritium sights

    Shotgun -- Heavily modified Remington 870 with extended magazine tube, side saddle carrier, top folding stock, Surefire fore-end, and Border Patrol tritium ghost ring sights

    Knife -- Mad Dog Warlock

  5. Pistols - Glock 23 in .40 S&W and .22 H&R long barrel revolver.
    Rifles: Mosin Nagant 7.62x54R, Marlin 30-30, Hi Point .40 cal carbine, Multiple Ruger 10-22 rifles.
    Shotgun: Remington 20 gauge pump, youth model for wife and daughter, Mossberg 500 12 gauge pump.
    I had a ton more but sold them off in favor of other goodies (HAM Radio, new tower, new antenna rotor and beam, etc.)

  6. I would want an SKS or M1 grand for a rifle(easy to get ammo because of mil suplus, pretty cheap, 30-06 or 7.62x39mm or the AK round, and I like them), a .22 of some sort eather semi or bolt action, and a Beretta Cx4 Storm. For handguns probally a ex GI issue M1911A1 Colt .45 cal and a M9 (the mil and police issue today) or Glock. Ashotgun would be eather a pumpaction or a doble barrle side by side or over and under in 12 gauge.
