What would be your doom's day gun? Mine would have to be a glock 17. I love it to death and it is the most reliable i have ever owned or fired.

Do you mean war in the streets or the gun you want to be buried with when you pass on?

Handguns: Springfield XD-.45 ACP

Rifles: Colt M4A3 .223

Shotgun: Remington 12 gague 870 Marine Magnum

Glock 17 is a good choice.

We have a Sig 226 in 9mm, which I affectionately refer to as our zombie gun. Accurate, fast follow-up shots, will eat anything, and has 15-round mags. I love it, and wish we had another, plus about 10 more mags and a few cases of ammo.

Like Ala Dan, you'd need several for different encounters.

* XD .45 with 5+ clips as a sidearm
* AR15 M4 .223 as the primary
*DPMS LR .308 for long range
* last but not least and of course winchester 1300 defender 12 ga.

I second Ala Dan and add one alternative:

Pistol: Springfield Armory XD-45

Rifle: Any good AR15 from A-B-C-R

Shotgun: Remington 870 Police
Honorable mention to Mossberg 590A1

Temporary thread hi-jack:

Why does a person need an AR?
How does one go about getting one?
Wouldn't it be better to own a 9mm carbine/handgun combo for Doomsday?

September 25, 2006, 09:32 PM
i want the bfg5000!

September 25, 2006, 09:32 PM
Doom's day??? So, wouldn't be most of the population already be gone??? If so, I'd just need one more shot to join them :scrutiny:

Now if it were a SHTF thing, I'd go w/ one of my USPs (45 acp or 9mm), my M1A, RRA AR and my Winchester defender :D

I donít subscribe to SHTF scenarios, but as my wife points out, Iím often wrong about so many other thingsÖ

So hereís what Iíve got on hand just in case:

Pistol: Les Baer 1911

Rifle: DSA SA58 Para .308

Shotgun: Benelli M1S90

DOOMS-DAY, mmmmmmm...

A suppressed M3 Grease Gun with a huge bag of mags and a 1911A1 on my hip.

Or my typical "Oh! crap gun", My 1894C Marlin and a huge bag of ammo.

September 25, 2006, 10:59 PM
well since this is in the handgun sub forum then, i would take the xd .40 service model with all the mags i had!

September 26, 2006, 12:02 AM
As someone else mentioned, I'm not worried about the apocalypse. Well at least not yet.

But just in case..........

Rifle: M14 with a stack of mags (although I'm starting to like these damn ARs more every day)

Pistol: Les Baer 1911 Concept II .45 ACP

Shotgun: Remington 870P Max, or a Beretta 1201FP for backup

A Browning Hi-Power. If everything's going to ****, you might as well have a handgun that's a pleasure to shoot.

September 26, 2006, 12:19 AM
Been there, did that, and carried a Witness .45.

I would just load up all my guns and rifles and cycle through them. If I had to carry them then I would carry my FAL, 1911, and an AK underfolder.

September 26, 2006, 01:34 PM
The Ruger Blackhawk in .357/.38/9mm

One gun, three common ammo types. When society crumbles it is going to be hard to find that .45gap or .357sig, but every general store and S-Mart in the country has plenty of .357, .38, and 9mm.

September 26, 2006, 01:39 PM
I want the mini-gun that Jessie Ventura has. I mean, if the S is hitting the fan big time, and there is no way of returning to any type of civilization, I want that thing.

If i can't have that, I want a pair of Thompson sub's with the drum mags. Then i'll put on my pinstripe 3 piece suit and go out in style.

September 26, 2006, 01:59 PM
Well, outside of a Vulcan, I guess my doomsday gun wouldn't be a pistol at all. Heck, it's doomsday, whos gonna give me a hassle? No, my gun would be my SKS. It's not the most modern gun in the world, but they are reliable, have a better cartridge for doomsday operations than do the AR's, and in the case of my SKS carbine, are just as short and handy. In the case of my other SKS, they also have a bayonet, allowing me to poke my way through doomsday lines at the 7-11. I would likely carry a pistol as backup, and given that capacity is king with the large, unruly doomsday crowds, I would go with my PT-99. I would prefer .45, but spraying down a doomsday crowd is easier with 14 shots than it is with 7.

September 26, 2006, 07:18 PM
Well i meant pistol's but i would definately have my bushmaster and my remington on hand. And i am sorry let me clarify. The new wall being built start's havok and all hell break's loose with rioting and looting. The national guard need's reenforcement's form the civilian sector to keep the peace in the street's and the "non-violent" protestor's are showing there true color's kind of doom's day.

September 26, 2006, 07:21 PM
A .22 rifle, a pair of good knives, and a USGI .45 autopistol...Remington Rand or Colt, please, and heavy on the .22 ammo. I'll avoid fights like cooties, but rednecks still gotta eat.;)

September 26, 2006, 08:11 PM
Right now I think it would be my Glock 20 with a handful of mags and a conversion barrel to .40 S&W or a 4" TacSol Mk II .22LR as a secondary weapon, and a Fulton Armory 18" M14 dropped into a Sage Chop Mod with a 1-4 Nightforce or a DS Arms Para Congo with an ACOG as my primary.
