Threads starting off asking a variation of the above question are sometimes fun, but not very practical as they are based on a fantasy situation, such as "because the government took the rest away", or "because zombies rule the Earth". This thread is going to be different. If you had to choose only seven firearms to take with you on an extended road trip across the US, what would they be and why? The trip will be at least a season and maybe even a year or more. After packing the necessities for you and your traveling companions- food, water, clothes, medical supplies, bedding and other sundries for a comfortable trip, you find you only have room for seven firearms and their ammo and gear. What seven do you take and why? What shooting events do you plan to attend? What would you hunt and where? What friends would you go shoot with? A few ground rules- -You don't have to visit all fifty states -A lock box for the firearms has been installed in your RV -If you take an AR or a Thompson Center or other firearm that lets you switch barrels/uppers, you can take no more than two additional uppers/barrels -You have familiarized yourself with the pertinent laws MY CHOICES At the top of the list is my AR pistol I've dubbed the Wolf Pup. It has an 11.5 inch barrel, Omega suppressor and SOB brace. It's short, it's fun and it's my first choice for self defense in my home. My wife and I lived in out motorhome for a year and a half and the Wolf Pup stood guard for much of that time My next choice would a Colt 6920 carbine. I have a friend back east that is the firearms instructor for his department and I'd be shooting drills under his tutelage with either the 6920 or the Wolf Pup. The 6920 would the second choice for defense. One of two additional uppers I'd take is a scoped 20 precision upper for varmints and the 6920 lower would be a better match than the pistol lower My choice for a second upper is a dedicated 22 rimfire. I tried a simple drop in conversion, but it's not as accurate as I'd like. Next up is the Para FAL. I have a couple of friends from the FALFiles and I'd take it to shoot with them. It doesn't hurt that the Para is pretty dang cool The next choice is for my wife. She loves lever action 22s, so the Marlin 1897 Texan gets the nod I think it's the classiest 22 Marlin makes Can't travel without our EDCs. Next on the list is two PPQs both in 9mm. One for me, one for the wife. For myself, it was hard to choose between my PPQ and my 1911. However, the PPQ is lighter and carries twice as many rounds. On this trip, sadly the 1911 stays home. The PPQs will be carried concealed where legal and used when shooting drills Last, but not least is the P22, because you should always have a 22 rimfire pistol and it's the wife's favorite These are my seven choices if I had limited space while living in my motorhome traveling around the country. None are a shotgun because I'm not a shotgun guy. Guess that means I won't be bird hunting on this trip. I would miss my other firearms, but I could make do with these for a year. What are your choices?
