    I have always believed that there are three must haves;

    one repeating .22 rifle, auto, pump, or lever.

    one repeating 12ga shotgun, pump or auto

    one repeating rifle in the .30 caliber range, an SKS is a good choice because of simplicity, durability, and affordable ammo.


    This is this! It's not something else, it's this!

    Don't pull it if you don't plan to use it, and don't pull it if you don't plan to kill!


    ALWAYS REMEMBER OUR MEN AND WOMEN OVER THERE.

    Accurate .22LR rifle; I prefer a bolt action.
    12 gauge shotgun; prefer a pump with shot and slug barrels.
    Accurate bolt action rifle; .308 or .30-06 ... maybe a .243.
    .357 Mag revolver; I prefer a 4" barrel.

    A bolt-action repeater rifle with telescopic sight that can engage and destroy your target past 300 yards, well past most troops marksmanship training and well past the effective range of fully automatic assault rifle fire. You have the small arms advantage, so keep your enemy beyond your battle sight zero.

    _EVERY_ gun owner...

    Wow, that is a doosey.


    10-22 rifle
    Model 10 revolver
    12 gauge pump
    30-30 lever


    I believe any two of those would fit in anyone's collection.

    1. .22 lr rifle
    2. 12 Gauge of some sort; I prefer the 870 w/ different barrels
    3. Revolver: .357; I prefer the GP-100
    4. Pistol for CCW: I like a bunch, but my "musts" include 1911 or BHP (or CZ75)
    5. Carbine: I like the Sig 556, but would "take" an AK or AR, in that order
    6. Hunting Rifle: .30-06 or .270 w/ a good scope.
    I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but with that collection you're pretty well rounded and have a firearm for a variety of situations.

    Suicide*Ride has comipled a good list. +1 to that. I'd add that everyone should own at least one authentic P.38 (a war model, not the P1) and at least one German-made Walther PPK. A Ruger 10/22 and either a Ruger Mark I, II, or III also would be on a the well-stocked owner's list. Add a Winchester lever-action carbine, a quality Remington pump, a Browning over-and-under shotgun, a Colt 1911 .45, and you are starting to get dressed for the dance.

    How 'bout the Garand?

    On second thought, every Garand owner needs to sell theirs. With the extreme surplus we would have I could afford to buy as many as I wanted. 40-50 ought to do it.

    I figure every gun owner should own seven guns. Inside bubbles are my choices for these.

    Rifles:
    1-22lr rifle (Marlin 60)
    1-semi-automatic defensive rifle (Converted Sagia in 7.62x39)
    1-bolt action scoped rifle ( Savage .308 with accu-trigger)

    Shotgun:
    1-shotgun with long barrel and short barrel. 2 round extension preferable with short barrel. (Winchester 1300 speed pump 12 ga.)

    Handgun:
    1-22lr handgun ( Ruger Mark 3 22/45)
    1-full or compact size handgun (Glock 19)
    1-pocket gun (Keltec p3at)
    (handguns if easily attainable and pocket gun if you CCW.)


    I purchased all of these for under two thousand but this was over a the past few years so prices are different and it doesn't include money for magazines.

    it really does not matter what centerfire you have but an absolute must is reloading equipment, in this day and age if your not you should be.

    .22LR firearm (handgun or long gun, doesn't matter)
    12/20 ga. shotgun
    Centerfire handgun .38spl or larger
    Centerfire rifle .223 or larger

    To me this is a bare bones set up for most people. You can go extremely low budget or as high end as you want, but with these 4 you can cover all the bases. For example...

    College-student Poor Version
    Pawn Shop Marlin model 60 - $100
    H&R single shot 12/20ga. - $100
    Hi-Point 9mm - $150 (yeah, they're ugly but they work)
    OR
    Used Model 10/Bersa .380/Makarov - $250
    Mosin Nagant - $150
    TOTAL: $500 - $600

    Average Guy Version
    Ruger 10/22 - $225
    Remington 870 - $250
    Service Semi-Auto pistol - $500
    Savage Accu-trigger model 10 in .243/.308/.270/.30-06 with a decent scope - $450 at Wal Mart
    TOTAL: $1425

    Deep Pockets Version
    CZ 452 - $250 (yeah I know, low end moneywise, but a steal at this price)
    Benelli M3 - $850
    Nicer 1911/New Sig/PC Revolver- $1000
    Springfield M1A/FAL - $1750
    TOTAL: $3850

    For starts a sturdy .22 LR bolt action rifle with iron sights and which has as few moving parts as possible.

    After that, just about anything that will fill in the three gun combo of a rifle, shotgun, and pistol, preferably obtained in that order.
