What's your "Nothing's happening but my rampant paranoia requires that I be grabbing for guns no matter what" gun?

chain gun.

That situation sounds quiet.......TOO quiet! I'd grab my Daewoo, Beta-C mag, and bayonet (can't be too careful), a 1911 on my belt, my 1903 in a shoulder holster, and my .308 scout rifle slung on my back. :p

When I don't need to actually be armed I carry my P32.:neener:

April 22, 2003, 05:20 PM
My spudgun loaded with balistic tipped tarantulas.

April 22, 2003, 05:32 PM
I was thinking potato gun myself.;)

I'm left in a quandary when we have a "No go!" situation..
I need my chaos, anarchy, and/or alien-zombie invasions. As A.P. would say,"it keeps me on the edge, where I need to be."

Oh, right, a "Nuttin's up Gun".. I'm still taking a H&K G36 or any variation thereof.. ;)

April 22, 2003, 06:21 PM
A suppressed .22 pistol.

tactical orange super-soaker w/ water balloons for diversion. :p

Nail gun. Nothing going on, might as well build something.:D

I hate to further drift on this extremely-serious thread :p but I would grab my super-un-tactical home-made crossbow... the one I've never had any bolts for. But do notice the cut-out cheek piece - a custom touch. ;)

Or if I'm feeling a bit more stealthy, I might nab my $40 Meijer close-out Marksman Official Olympic Trainer pellet rifle. Note the uber-tactical stock, the uber-high end 2.5x BSA scope that is more translucent than transparent and the uber-smithed trigger the breaks clean at about 12 lbs. It's also in small enough caliber that even Wild Romanian might approve. :D

I keep a CCW handy .

Dunno, its that quiet before the storm thing. Maybe having raised sibs and dogs. When "nothings happening" either they are asleep or into something--usually the later.;)

First I'd grab my helmet - In preparation for possible photo ops at Knob Creek this spring, I layered it with a few sheets of (shiny side out) aluminum foil!

April 22, 2003, 06:56 PM
Even when it's "quiet" I still sleep with one or more 1911's and since I'm prone to day dreaming....I keep them around all day too.

Semper Fi, Sgt

Why do you ask?!
What's goin' on?!

April 22, 2003, 09:06 PM
Put on some armor (chainmail, hardened leather, PASGT jacket....etc), strap on my various knives and stand ready for trouble. If nothing happens in 24 hours, stand down and get some zzzzzzzzzz.

April 22, 2003, 09:14 PM
But Mine will be loaded with silvertip-superballistic FROGS! (Not the french Kind either!):what:

April 22, 2003, 09:39 PM
Beretta 92F Vertec
92G Vertec IA
92F Brigadier Inox
92G Elite
92 Stock
92 Combat
92 Billenium
Cx4 Storm

Same mags, baby.

What Ledbetter said.

And Skunk too.

The P32 is soooo easy to conceal.

April 22, 2003, 09:57 PM
All your 92F and variations thereof are belong to Skunk

April 22, 2003, 10:32 PM
Usually my Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator or a Super Soaker, which ever seems more tactical at the time:uhoh:

April 22, 2003, 10:33 PM
In the back of my truck lately (although not at this moment) has been a Rem 870 Wingmaster and a Browning O/U for Trap and Skeet (although the 870's 20" HD/PD barrel is also in the case) and a S&W Mod 629 for GP. The 629 may be replaced by a 1911 type, but two shotguns and a PD handgun is pretty standard truck carry for me lately.

April 22, 2003, 11:11 PM
I try to address this daily irrational craving by keeping them in rotation so I don't wear any particular one out by lavishing too much attention on it.

I have noticed lately that the ARs are getting pulled out of the safe a lot and the shotgun is being neglected. Handguns get their turns, but the ARs keep budging to the front.

All your 92F and variations thereof are belong to Skunk.
All your H&K G36's and *ahem* "variations thereof" are belong to Schuey.. :uhoh:

A good single action revolver is always best, when i don't have to shoot anything in a hurry, or be to tatical.

And that should apply for the NO SHTF.

Matter of fact i have one in a holster hanging on my bed post.

Gusses i don't plan on shooting more than 5 people in the middle of the night. :cool:

Well, my usual CCW gun is a Kahr K40, so that's likely what I'd be found with.

As long as no one is attacking, no one is invading and no S is H'ing TF I'd have to borrow a quote from the Marines in the movie "Full Metal Jacket" and set my rifle aside for a bit and have some FUN!

Marines: [Chanting] This is my rifle.
Marines: [Grabbing their ......] This is my gun. This is for fighting, and this is for fun.

April 24, 2003, 12:23 PM
Everyone should know by now, the proper answer is Plasma Phase Rifle in the 40 watt range.

Those threads cracked me up. Good to laugh at ourselves sometimes. My stand-by mode weapon would be five feet of rubber tubing made into a sling. In Sapada, the western, they lay on their backs and put their feet into the loops to form a slingshot. Ammo was bolts, nuts, balls, rocks, anything handy. Pretty fun stuff.

Say Cratz, that's a beauty of an x-bow.
