    If for some reason you comlpetley lost everyone of your firearms, all your ammo, and all accesories, what would you buy?

    Edit to add: Let's say you lost all you guns in a natural disaster and you got reimbursed by insurance (hypothetically). What guns would you buy to restock your armory, knowing what you now know?

    I'd buy it all back; same rifles, shotguns, handguns, reloading equipment, components, etc. Hopefully insurance would help.
    What I've accumulated so far is what I would want... well... I wouldn't rush to replace my Hi-Point.:eek:

    That depends on what you mean by "lost".

    If they just magically disappeared one day I'd buy a pistol, a rifle and a shotgun in order to replace those that were lost. If they were stolen, the same. If I lost my rights due to unforseen events and circumstances, I'd buy an aluminum baseball bat.

    Young and poor.

    If it was a poof-and-gone type of deal, id be gun-less for a few months at least. When I had the extra money, id probably go pick up another Pardner pump. They have them at my walmart for $178 brand new, which is less than I paid for mine back in 08.

    The first gun I replace would be one of my shotguns. A shotgun is a versatile all purpose firearm for many uses until I can start replacing the others.

    I'd buy a Polish P64 pistol, an FNP-45 pistol, a J-frame revolver in .38 Spl, and a Remington 870 Police Magnum shotgun.

    Depends on how I lost em.

    Did someone steal em? My first purchase would be a Mossberg 500. Because if there's thieves in my area, I want a shotgun.

    Did I lose them due to an accident or something? Would probably re-purchase a Ruger New Vaquero in .45 Colt.

    As long as you stay off of a boat, this scenerio shouldn't come up...

    Benelli M-2 with 26" barrel
    CZ 452 American
    Glock 19

    I can hunt anything in NA that I plan to ever hunt and be well protected. I'd take the rest of the insurance money and book some nice hunts and be happy.

    I would definitely replace my Colt Police Positive Special and SAA. For deep concealment I would buy another Walther PP in .32 ACP.

    A good Winchester or Marlin 30 30 and a Remington 870 would round out my initial inventory.

    Great question by the way.

    Some are no brainers but I had to think about a few others.

    45 Colt Gold Cup
    M1A Supermatch
    Heavy barrel AR-15
    Rem 1100
    T/C Contender in 32-20

    That would hold me for a little while........

    I learned my lesson from the last tragic boating incident.. I can't just keep buying guns to have them end up on the bottom of the ocean somewhere.

    No more for me, thanks.


    ETA - That would all change if someone could come up with a firearm that is part of my body.
    Actually, I think I'm going to make that.. It'll be a thing on the shoulder, screw mounted.. The feeding port would have a utensil fitted to the magazine that would slice through any clothing on top of it so that you could load it through a shirt.



    Then, have the thing with the role of magazine feed a belt of ammo through it, and have a nice dump-pouch pack thing to collect the belt on the other side of the chest.

    I'd buy that... Belt-fed shoulder gun... I wonder what would really be wrong with that idea in terms of structural support offered by the shoulder... I'd hate to have all that stuff in there shattered into a million pieces.

    I'd probably end up with about 66% to 75% of what I own. I'd likely get a bit less variety in the pistols and duplicates of some. Surprisingly, I'd also likely do away with my 22 LR firearms. Yes, they are fun to shoot and inexpensive. At this point, my most precious commodity is my time. With limited time to shoot, I'd rather shoot the calibers I like.

    The other thing would be caliber consolidation. Nothing drives me crazy like feeling like a must keep a caliber in stock and it's for one single firearm. I can live without 9 mm or 40 cal or 308 or 22 LR. I can always rent something to shoot in this caliber if I really want to.

    The only calibers I would own are the following:
    45 ACP
    12 gauge
    223
    30-06
    30-30

    Unfortunately that did happen to me in a divorce.

    My first purchase was a Ruger MKIII. Then a 10/22 carbine, which I have upgraded with a match barrel, thumbhole stock, and KIDD two stage trigger. It is now a tackdriver extraordinaire. Then I bought a replacement for the French 8mm Lebel Birthier MLE-16 rifle I had. Then an 1851 Navy BP revolver replica. The only gun I got to keep, because I had it locked away, is my Taurus PT-145 carry gun. I also had to replace my reloading press (LEE Turret) and dies.

    The guns I lost when the ex-wife sold them before the divorce went to court was:

    .460 S&W 8 1/2" barrel revolver
    French MLE-16 rifle
    Taurus Judge revolver
    Glock (I think 17) .40 S&W - that was actually hers
    Stag Arms AR-15
    Remmington Model Seven .300RSAUM rifle
    Baretta NEOS .22 pistol
    Taurus PT-92
    Argentine Mauser rifle in original 7.62 mm ARG caliber
    Ruger P345
    Oh...almost forgot the Yugo SKS.


    I had to leave them in her custody when I was deployed to Iraq. She sold them all + safe + about 4,000 rounds of various ammo for $4,000. :(

    Are you crying yet? It came up in the divorce, but the judge didn't do anything about it.
