    In the country I would have my Winchester 1300 pump with three barrels, Colt .44 Mag Anaconda 4 inch barrel, and German Mauser K98 8mm rifle.

    Wow, that a long list for being a "limited" amount of guns! So I'll just limit my list to two. So here you go. Keep in mind these are guns I already own, if I could pick anything, my list would be somewhat different.

    Country
    G19
    Benelli SBE ( with an additional slug barrel)



    City
    G19
    Remington 870 wingmaster ( which is set up for trapshooting, so I would have to change the bbl to a 18 incher, and put on the old wood)

    My three would be:

    1. Mosseberg 500 12ga with two barrels, 20" with rifle sights and a 28" vent rib
    2. Colt or Bushmaster CAR-15 or M4 type rifle
    3. Glock 17 or 22

    This is my minimum a would want to have for defense. I have thought before if a dire financial emergency happened to me every gun I have would go but these. My choices hold I think for city and country, maybe add a rifle in .308 if in the woods somewhwere.

    Bonus gun:
    4.Ruger SP-101 3" barrel in 357Mag

    My main three would have to be:

    Winchester model 94 .30-30
    Winchester Model 12 shotgun 12 ga
    and maybe Ruger Redhawk .357

    I think those three could cover everything I'd need guns for if I was limited.

    I really hate the idea of one or two guns but if pushed I guess it would be my S&W 686+ 3 inch and my Rem 870. Thank God that is not the case!

    Well, I guess if could only have one of "X" I would have a lot of what I already have but I'd add a nice bolt action rifle in 308 and call it a day.

    A lot of you guys are "limiting" yourselves to three or four firearms! That's a lot of guns, really. You only have two hands.

    Think: Hurricane (invading horde, locust swarm, whatever) is bearing down, car is packed to the gills, and you get to grab ONE on the way out. What is it?

    My vote: Glock 26, but any reliable handgun would do if you know it well enough.

    Alternate scenario: You live in the country and are only allowed one, for whatever reason.

    My vote: Any 12 gauge shotgun. Birdshot, buckshot, slugs... Mr. 12 can handle whatever you need him to.

    Except somebody taking potshots at you from 200 or so yards:)
    A rifle is the best friend for SHTF
    1 gun only would be, for me, a M1A in bush configuration
    2 guns? Add a 1911, Hi-Power or G-22 I'll take any one of those
    3? A 22 rifle
    4? OK a shotgun--A Mossy 590

    It really depends on what you want/expect to do with them:

    Survival/Living of the land-shotgun and or .22
    Protection- decent centerfire-> for me my .303 or 30-30 and a shotgun (lever action).

    Remember that I am in Oz and we don't have really big predator critters and we can't have the really fun (SD) guns.
