I couldn't find this question in the archives, so here goes:

If you could have only one handgun, one shotgun, and one rifle, what would they be?

Handgun - a Medusa because you can scavenge so many different cartridges for it

Shotgun - the Bennelli that I already have

Rifle - A good bolt gun, but I'm not sure exactly which one.

At least seperately I thing the archieves has had a number of "if you could only have one" type threads. But heck - none others today anyway ! :D

Handgun : .357 Magnum revolver - 4 inch barrel (S&W - Ruger - Taurus)

Shotgun : Pump 12 ga. with interchangable barrels ( Remington - Mossberg)

Rifle : Bolt action .308 Win with iron sights and 3X9 scope (Remington, Ruger, Winchester, Savage)

Luckily I have two out three of them already. I have an FN .40 HP, and a .35 Cal Marlin Lever Action Rifle. Both are very accurate and fine shooters. My choice of shot gun will be FN Auto Police Model (my retirement present to myself). It is not a very fancy or pretty choice of weapons, but very practicle and dependable. After 22 years in the Infantry (I retire in a few days), I know how to use them.

P.S. An M-1 Garand would be nice for reaching out.

Handgun: Either Medusa or my Smith 620.

Rifle: M1 or an AR--to "cheat" the "one rifle"--or maybe just a SIG 556

Shotgun: Benelli M4

Handgun......my XD-40 with 6 magazines.:D
Shotgun......my Mossberg 500
Rifle............my newly aquired Marlin 22 magnum with scope.:D

My reasoning behind the 22 mag is the fact that I could carry a boatload of ammo and it would not weigh much. A good head shot with a 22 mag would take care of a deer also. I think it would be a good survival rifle.

If I could only own one of each at a time, and had the chance to sell them and buy another (and they were given to me), I'd go with the following:

-Walther PPK from Dr. No.
-Some old, valuable Remington Model 12 with historical significance, I dont know...
-Carlos Hathcock's Model 70 .

Then, I'd sell them, pocket the money, and buy the following:

-Glock of some sort.
-Remington 870 Wingmaster (not really into shotguns. Are these reliable?).
-AK-47. stick a pipe bomb inside and it will still function.

I want reliability.

since I only have 1 of each...for a while now at least it is as follows.

handgun: 1911 .45 ACP govt.

shotgun: 870 18" 6+1 w/ SpecOps knoxx stock.

rifle: bushmaster A4 with an ACOG.

fits all the bills...reach out to 600 yards with the rifle, shotgun for homework and handgun for conceal...

edit: just bought the 870 today from Bass Pro. $320 + $30 rebate...not bad.

Only One? that's too hard. but if i had to choose, i would probably go with.....


Pistol: 1911 in .45 ACP.

Shotgun: My Mossberg 500 with both barrels seems to fit the bill.

Rifle: This one is the hardest for me. I would want my Remington 7400 in 30-06 for hunting purposes. but i also would also want a AR-15 or AK-47 for just shooting for fun. I guess if i could only pick one i'd take an AR chambered in .308 so i could still hunt with it. (.223 isn't legal for big game in MN)

Well, if I'm choosing from guns I currently own:
Handgun:my 1911 Firestorm .45acp
Rifle:my Winchester model 70xtr 30-06
Shotgun:my Remmington 1100 (mainly because of reliability and versatility with my screw in chokes and an extra slug barrel.)

If we're dreamin or makin a wish list:
Handgun:totally hand made and assembled custom job 1911...Les Baer maybe, hard to say as I have no real experiance with "high end" guns of any sort, other than a couple "higher end" ones I inherited.
Rifle:whatever the nicest bolt 30-06 is....
Shotgun:probly just a fancy, nicer looking gun simalar to the 1100, for the same reasons as above, I'd just pick one that was all ingraved and inlayed and such.

Man, I'm really bad at the "fantasy" part, as I know so little about what the "fanciest", "most expensive" or "top of the line" guns even are, as I know I will never have them, and can't complain about a single gun I DO have. Kinda depressing, I guess....I have no real gun fantasy life....I need more magazine subscriptions or something...:)

and of course, the inevetable "cheats" in that I can get .22lr conversions for the 191 and AR, so I can shoot .22 out of those frames/recievers. Also I'd want to pick up other various sized uppers for the AR as well.

Caimlas
December 27, 2006, 10:12 AM
Well, I'd be mainly going for utility, and assuming that .22LR pistols and rifles do not count for either category (they're like a toaster - every family should have at least one, and don't fit into the 'appliance' definition), my picks would be:

- AK47 - cartridge decent enough to take out most anything I'd need it to, in a dependable platform, which will last long enough to give to my grandchildren, even with thorough use
- An "Patrol" pump shotgun with side-folding stock and decent sights (so it oculd be employed for ranged shooting if needbe).
- Springer "Loaded" 1911 or any similar design - any of good metallurgy with decent sights and no front slide serrations: because I like them, the most easily worked on in terms of available parts and expertise, and they're better than Glocks.

I'm actually gonna cheat a bit.

I'm the oddball with no shotgun nor experience with one.

Sorry, but I'm going with a second rifle.

Sidearm: S&W 586-7 (.357 x 7) +speedloaders
Main Rifle: Marlin 336C in .30-30
Rifle #2: Marlin 1894C in .357

Reasoning:
Although no context was given, I have to assume some kind of scenario. I'm going with some kind of event that would, among other things, render ammo scarce.
.357 revolver: utterly reliable, wide range of loads, can be used for SD or hunting, reloadable should the need arise.
.30-30 rifle: mechanical simplicity, reliability, fine for SD, born for hunting, wide availability of ammo, wide range of loads, reloadable.
.357 carbine: companion for the revolver (common ammo), reliable (that word again), useful for small and medium -- even large -- game.
I contemplated a .223 rifle, but while it's okay for social work and smallish game, it's not as reliable for tipping Bambi over. I hate to give up the high rate of fire, and in a more narrowly defined scenario I might be persuaded.
Also gave some thought to a companion set in another pistol calibre (like 9mm or .40 cal) but, again, trading hitting power for firepower assumes "urban combat" scenarios, and "urban" is not in my plans. A narrower scenario might skew my decision that way, though.
Although it's not very sporting, I'm pretty sure that with a bit of practice I could bag waterfowl with a carbine. I used to do chickens with a pellet gun (head shots), so it's not out of the question.
With a little more of a contrived set of assumptions, the .30-30 might well be replaced with a good .22 LR rifle, the Ruger 10/22 comes to mind, although I'd prefer the Marlin 39A if I could lay hands on one.

However, given the lack of parameters, my imagination invents its own boogie men, and the result is above.

I already own two of the three. Well, maybe all three. I can't decide.

I already have the pistol and shotgun, a 1911 in .45 acp and a pump shotgun in 12 guage.

The rifle would be a toss-up between a bolt .308 (have that) and a flat-top AR (have a standard set-up).

December 29, 2006, 02:32 PM
I'd say

1.) Walther P99 9x19 (It has stopping power, higher capacity than most pistols {15+1}, most common round in the world, and concealability)

2.) Mossberg 500. (Need I say more?)

3.) Henry Survival Rifle. (It floats, light ammo, another most common round in the world, it can kill small game for survival, and sniping capability if needs be)


That is, if we're talking about SHTF scenario and you absolutely HAVE no other choice and have to carry everything on you. Can I get an AMEN?

Pistol- Springfield XD.45 Tactical. My current favorite pistol.
Rifle- Either an M1D, or a really really good M1903. Either way, 30-'06 for me.
Shotgun- Couldn't say, no real experience there.

357mag Pistol, 357mag Lever Rifle and any 12 guage pump 500 or an 870 preferably.
Sub a 44 mag for the pistol and rifle if you want just so they shoot the same rounds.

I have 2 of them all ready to go already.

1. Uzi Carbine 9mm for large groups and distances up to 100yds. Reliable, accurate, hi-cap, common cartridge, and interchangable with handgun rounds, not to mention very cool looking.
2. Ruger Blackhawk Convertible .357/.38 w/ 9mm cylinder. Hunting, SD, accurate, three of the most common calibers in the world, ULTRA reliable and very handsome!
3. H&R Single Shot BBL Combo (one serial number = ONE gun)
12ga bbl for door breaching, birds and fast moving targets
.30-06 bbl for long range, large game and anything that the other guns can't kill
.22 bbl for hunting, plinking, and keeping a low key
Covers all bases huh

Glock 21

Remington 870 in 3 1/2" magnum (takes any 12 gauge round)

Rifle is a tough call. I like my AKs but if my AR proves to be as reliable then AR it is.

These 3 will get just about any job done.

I'll play. One pistol, Glock 23; One rifle, Remington Model 700 BDL 270; One shotgun, Ithaca Model 37 12 gauge. Revolvers not included?

You didn't say "why" or the purpose of the firearms. But everyone should have at least one 22 rifle, and a 22 handgun (if they shoot handguns).
