    i realize this has probley been asked before but once again my curiosity has gotten the better of me. if you could only own two firearms what would they be? i would go with an M1A and a Glock23, i think that would pretty much cover just about anything.

    Hehe, this has been around before, once or twice... :evil:

    I'll play anyhow. Any good, reliable 12 guage pump and a reliable auto in 10mm. Haven't tested them out personally (the 10mms, that is) so I don't know which make.

    Remington 12 GA 870 and Hk USP Compact 9mm.

    Reason...

    The 12 Ga offers excellent stopping power and you have a wide ammo selection. With the Sabot slugs you can effectively engage targets a bit past 100 meters. Buckshot or high brass loads will stop just about any perp in his tracks from point blank to 25 meters.

    The HK USP is small enough to conceal effectively, but large enough to be of some use for combat shooting. The 9mm caliber, with proper ammo selection can be very effective.

    Plus 12 Ga and 9mm ammo can be purchased anywhere and is relatively inexpensive.

    Good Shooting

    I would take a lever action marlin rifle in .357 magnum, and a .357 magnum revolver, either colt or S&W.

    The reasoning behind this one is that if it ever came down to only having two guns, somethings gone majorly wrong in this country and I probably wouldn't be able to find parts or exotic calibers. Lever action rifles and double action revolvers are pretty much bulletproof. Generally they don't break and they don't jam and they are well built. All of these are qualities you want if you can only have two guns with no chance of replacement or repair. If maintained well you could get unlimited use out of them.

    Ammo for .357 is easy to find, especially factoring in .38 special. They are easy to load, and ammo runs the full range from the lightest .38 specials to the hottest .357 magnums, so it would be able to fulfill any task.
