Pick your 5 guns based on the following criteria (one gun per category). I know some have 2 each but play along. Feel free to tell why you choose the one you did.

1) Plinking/Fun
2) Utility/Woods
3) Home Defense
4) Conceal Carry
5) One you can't live with out

Feel free to go with just handguns or handguns and longguns. Since this is a handgun forum i am sticking to that, but its your choice.

Ok I will go first

1) Plinking/Fun. Ruger MKIII. Built to last for my grandkids. Good price. Accurate shot. Cheap Ammo

2) Utility/Woods. Ruger Blackhawk .357/9mm. Able to shoot 3 types of ammo. Built to last for my grandkids. Good Price. accurate shot.

3) Home Defense/End of The World. Ruger p95. Built like a tank. Shoots anything I feed it. High capacity mags. poplar ammo. Good Price

4) Conceal Carry. Ruger SP101 Ok this is the only category I don't already own. i want a .357 snub nose revolver. I ask suggestions on this board and it seems like the way to go.

5) One I can't live without Ruger Single Six. Mainly because it was my first gun. but it is a blast to shoot and I look forward to passing it to my son.

Your Turn:):cool::):cool:

1...22 target.... be it a ruger mk series, or a buckmark or a smith 41..
2...Marlin 45-70 Guide gun, there is no animal I could encounter that it cannot take down inside of 150-200 yds.
3...(Home defense) likely a 12 ga pump of some sort... an 870 fits nicely... (end of the world) I want more range/less weight so an AR fits that....it i had to choose one of the two.. the AR has greater versatility in a defensive role.
4...CC, Steyr M9-A1 or CZ P-O7. Others may insert Glock 19 here.
5...Full sized 357 revolver... Smith 686 or Ruger GP-100... slight nod to the Ruger for "ruggedness."

All of my answers are stuff I'd LIKE to get.

1) Plinking/Fun: Smith and wesson 317 or 617
2) Utility/Woods: Sp101 3 inch 357 mag OR 4 inch GP100
3) Home Defense/End of the world: AR-15, because I'm used to it.
4) Conceal Carry: Man this is tough, one gun for conceal carry. If I can only have one then I'll take a smith and wesson 638/642/442.
5) One you can't live with out: Gotta have a pump 12 guage. With multiple barrels. 870 or 500, it really doesn't matter.

1) Plinking/Fun - Ruger Mark II Target (stainless, bull barrel) - Cheap to shoot, fun to shoot, accurate, I just love this pistol!
2) Utility/Woods - Ruger Security Six - The ability to shoot .357, .38, or .38 +p. Rugged and simple design. Just a hard working gun that will never fail on you. Built to last multiple lifetimes.
3a) Home Defense - Benelli Supernova Tactical - High quality, reliable, can shoot any 12 ga shell out there accurately. The shell stop button allows you to switch to a non-lethal shell on the fly.
3b) End of the world - vz58 - just an incredible assault rifle. Accurate, rugged, chambered in a plentiful proven round
4) Conceal Carry - CZ82 - mid sized (which I prefer), 12+1, all steel, polygonal barrel, I am dead nuts accurate with it.
5) One you can't live with out - Winchester Model 1892 (circa 1893) - While I'm still breathing I will never part with it!

1) Plinking/Fun

Mossberg 702 Plinkster. For $100 bucks new it can't be beat, and semi-auto .22s are tons of fun.

2) Utility/Woods

Winchester 94 30-30. Lightweight, good capacity, common ammo, accurate and powerful enough for any game in the woods around here.

3) Home Defense

Mossberg 500

4) Conceal Carry

I was going to say my Springer 1911 Champion, my usual carry piece, but on second thought, I'd go with Kel-tec P3AT. The gun in your pocket beats the gun on the nightstand, and the Keltec goes with me everywhere, even when I'm carrying a larger gun.


5) One you can't live with out

Fun gun: Saiga 7.62x39 converted to AK configuration. I can get ammo pretty cheap, so it is a viable plinker, plus it has more practical/social applications than a .22
Utility/Woods: Large, Semiauto 30-06 or 308. Something like a FAL, M1 Garand, or M14. This would be my utility, capable of handling just about anything, can hunt with it if I have to, rifle.
Home Defence: Remington 870 twelve guage. 19 inch barrel. rifle sights. My very favorite gun.
Carry Gun: Full sized 1911a1. They've been going strong for almost 100 years now.
The gun I just have to have: This was a hard one, and I was really leaning towards a Saiga 12, but if I can only have one gun, regardless of practicality, its got to be the Thompson Submachine Gun!

1. a 22, Ruger 10/22 probably.
2. .357 revolver, SW or Ruger, probably a 4" barrel, but 6" would be okay.
3. 12 ga, since it's sort of a which list, a Bernelli M4
4. Full sized 1911.
5. The gun I couldn't live without would need to be a rifle with a little bit of range. Probably 7x62 in an AR variant.

OK. I'll play.

5) One you can't live with out - Mare's Leg lever action pistol in 44-40.

Ask me again tomorrow and the list may change. I'm old.

Here's the 5 I'm rolling to the range with today anyway;

1. Plinking/Fun, Walther P22
2. Utility/Woods, Savage 62F
3. Home Defense, Beretta 92FS
4. Conceal Carry, Walther PK380 (first time shooting today, so not sure on that yet).
5. Can't live without, Hi Point 995 Carbine

Actually, just going to the range. The rule for the day? Apparently, no wood.

1. Ruger MKIII
2. Rem 700 SPS Varmint .308
3. Walther P99 AS - I like the trigger pull and it eats everything I put in it. - Opt for 1911 .45
4. Home Defense / EOW - REM 870 / AR 15
5. If I could only pick one.... AR 15 make the final. You can hunt with it; provide defense or offense; easy to obtain ammo;

Threads like this are a lot more interesting when people explain why a certain gun is important to them. It makes you look at your guns differently.

1) Plinking/Fun = Spikes Tactical Dedicated .22 LR AR15 upper ::: Very accurate, 30 rd clips, cheap ammo and simply looks mean. Plus if helps me get better at shooting with #5 while saving $$$$.
2) Utility/Woods = Hard call. Maybe my Izhmash AK47 (Converted Saiga) but may switch to Lever Action 357 because it can share ammo with #4.
3) Home Defense = FNP40 ::: just because it fits my hand so well and has an external hammer. The extra weight of the hammer on the first pull prevents an adrenaline induced accidental discharge. Not entirely sure as I haven't shot it much yet.
4) Conceal Carry = Some .357 magnum revolver ::: Leaning Ruger LCR because it fits my hand so well and is extremely light. Plenty of good S&W choices though.
5) One you can't live with out = AR15 ::: Because I shoot so much better with it than my AK's thanks to the longer site radius, I can train w/ a .22LR upper and 5.56 ammo is plentiful. Configuration = midlength (more durable than M4) AR15 dressed up with CMMG lower , magpul ACS stock (more comfortable than the CTR), Aimpoint 9000sc (50,000 hours on one battery, cheap when on sale and accurate), Troy BUIS (only the best!) and magpul magazines. Otis cleaning kit in handle.

4) Conceal Carry- 1911 (might be big, but it works)
5) One you can't live with out- Either my AR-15 or a Mauser. Can't decide.

1) Plinking/Fun Kel-Tec Sub 2000 I bought this to be my plinker and get me back into guns and it worked. Put a 33 round Glock magazine in it and go for it. It also has enough recoil to feel like a real gun and 9mm is fairly cheap.
2) Utility/Woods Alexander Arms AR in 6.5 Grendel its good for anything up to and including Elk and its an AR.
3) Home Defense Mossberg 500, nuff said.
4) Conceal Carry G26. I love the G26, I shoot it better than a G17, its small, it has plenty of firepower for a CCW. Its affordable.
5) One you can't live with out. Couple of ways to take this. In terms of freaking out if I did not have one it would be my G26. Hard to imagine not having a concealed carry. In terms of a gun I lusted after it was the Alexander Arms Grendel. Spent more than I could really afford buying it, optics, magazines and ammo and never regretted it.

So just four for me.

These categories overlap. Have to break it down to Handguns and Long Guns.

Handguns:
1.) Plinking/Fun - Plinking: Tossup between my Taurus 92 with 22 conversion, and my K22 Revolver. Fun: S&W 686, although I just got a Ruger P90 I have yet to shoot.

2) Utility/Woods - S&W 686

3) Home Defense/SHTF - S&W 686, Ruger P90, Taurus 92, or Taurus 100. (SHTF: It depends on what I can get ammo wise.)

4) Conceal Carry - Don't have it in my state. I would think my Taurus 92, or Ruger P90, and just to mix it up a little, my 686 on occasion.

5) One you can't live with out - S&W 686

Long Guns:
1.) Plinking/Fun - Mossberg Plinkster, and Marlin 39A (Just plain fun)

2.) Utility/Woods - Remington 870 Shotgun With a Knoxx folding Copstock or Marlin 1894 in .357 to match my S&W 686

3.) Home Defense/SHTF - Home Defense: Remington 870. SHTF: Galil (Israeli AK-47 in .223), WASR-10 (AK in 7.62x39), or one of my many Mosin Nagant's (7.62x54r).

4.) Can't Live without - My Marlin 60 (Present from my parents), or British Lee-Enfield 303 (Inherited from my Grandpa).

I am assuming you are not limiting the arsenal to five, just asking what I'd choose for each of these categories. If it were a five-gun limit, I'd answer differently.

1) Plinking/Fun - CZ 452 American, preferably with a can
2) Utility/Woods - Remington Model 7 in .243
3) Home Defense - Mossberg 500 12 gauge
4) Conceal Carry - S&W 4013 (.40 S&W)
5) One you can't live with out - Remington 700 VSSF in .308

February 14, 2011, 10:58 PM
1) Plinking/Fun = Ruger 10/22 with red dot scope (own)
2) Utility/Woods = Mosin Nagant (own)
3a) Home Defense = Beretta 92FS (own)
3b) "For times when society may not be in order" = Bushy M4A3 (own)
4) Conceal Carry = Keltec P3AT (own)
5) One you can't live with out = Bushy M4A3 (own)

Now I see why I haven't felt the compulsion to buy a gun in a while.

1) Plinking/Fun = Marlin 60 - I've had more fun shooting that little rifle for the past 20 years than anything else. I should probably pick up a second one I love mine so much.

2) Utility/Woods = S&W 629 R8 - I've taken a couple hogs with it.

3) Home Defense = Mossberg 500 - I prefer to have a shotgun for HD. I don't think you can go wrong with a 500 for the price.

4) Conceal Carry = CZ Rami - Great little pistol. I searched for a couple years trying to find a better wheel and found the Rami.

5) One you can't live with out = SCAR 16s - I waited for a long time to get it. It's my current favorite.

Pick your 5 guns based on the following criteria (one gun per category). I know some have 2 each but play along. Feel free to tell why you choose the one you did.

1) Plinking/Fun

Feel free to go with just handguns or handguns and longguns. Since this is a handgun forum i am sticking to that, but its your choice.

That part might get your thread locked. Just sayin'.

1) Plinking/Fun - Buckmark with a FastFire and suppressor. Doesn't get much more fun than that, and it is quiet which expands plinking location possibilities.
2) Utility/Woods - GP100. Built to last, easy to carry, wide range of ammo.
3) Home Defense - Mossberg 500 (or 870, I just happen to have the 500). I can have extra barrels for other purposes, right...
4) Conceal Carry - Probably a CZ-75 compact, but I haven't filled this niche yet.
5) One you can't live without - an AR-15, or a 336, tough call. Probably the AR today, but ask again tomorrow...
