    OK Troops,

    Here's the deal. There's an impending nuclear exchange and you have no and I mean NO time to pack everything you might think you need to survive in the wilderness. For those of you who try to change any SHTF scenario to fit your own personal ideas of what one should do, or bring.....
    I don't care how many boxes of Pampers, bottles of Midol, Prozac, or Viagra you think you'll need to keep your family happy. And I don't care what your favorite brand of birth control, peanut butter, soda pop, or alcoholic beverage is.

    All I want to know is, if you had only enough time to grab 4 rifles and their ammo, what would they be?

    Cool. I gedda play first.

    1) .308 scoped bolt gun for reaching out.
    2) AK (or AR) in case of "riot control" or a serious one-to-many situation.
    3) A .22 for low-noise game getting.

    Don't need a 4th.

    Don't need no rifle

    Savage Striker 22lr
    Contender 223
    Taurus 650

    I ain't sticking around for any firefights. Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack hide out 'til things get abit more organized. I'll be hanging with Jack.

    Since no one else is playing by the rules, I won't either...

    * DSA STG58A w/ 3-9x scope -- main line use and long range -- 8 mags
    * Mossy 500 w/ riot barrel -- up close and food-getter -- slugs, #1 buck, birdshot
    * 1911 45 ACP -- fight to get my rifle -- 4-round mags

    That's it. If you MADE me pick one more

    * Good scoped bolt 22 rifle

    Ok, I'll play by the rules, since no one else can. :D

    From what I have on hand:
    1) SAR-1
    2) SKS
    3) AR-7
    4) M/N M-44

    If I could pick and choose from anything: (and break the rules, like everyone else)
    1) M-4/M203 combo
    2) Rem 700 PSS in .308
    3) suppressed 10/22
    4) Springfield M6 Scout (it's a rifle, it just happens to have a .410 barrel also)

    If all I can take is rifles...I won't bother taking 4

    Bolt action .308 for bigger game

    .22lr for little game

    If you are going to get abusive I will also take my FAL so I don't need another caliber....and...and...damn...another .22lr

    The FAL might come in handy....since I didn't bring the toilet paper I may have to hold up my fellow survivors!

    Shotguns and pistols too? or just rifles. I would say ...

    HK-91 with a trigger job and a hollowed Cetme stock to hold a small parts/repair kit. Scoped AO nightsights and a bipod. Lot's of mags 30 or so 20rnd and a couple of 5rnd mags for prone or long distance work.

    bolt action sturdy war rifle like the mosin-nagant or mauser 98k with a .30-06 barrel and a chamber adapter to fire the .308, and the .32acp for quiet work. Scoped, doped, and floated.

    Lever action .22 BL-22 with a scope and backup peep sight or a .22 hangun, mk2 competition long barrel with a can but I like the BL-22 and it's handy light and easy to shoot well.

    then the last one is, depending on the question above, a g20 with lot's of ammo and barrels in .40, 10mm, and 9mm That way I could shoot reloaded cast 10s in the aftermarket barrel, and scrounged 9 and 40 in the same gun. mags for each round.

    Or a 12 guage mossberg 590 SP with choate pistol grip speed feed, 20" bbl and 9rnd magazine. Side saddle full of buck, speed feed full of Brenneke sabot slugs butt cuff full of slugs, sling full of buck. Ghost ring sights, fiberoptic front sight, no electronics, no tritium to die out.

    I already live in the "wilderness" so I don't have to pack to go anywhere.

    Besides, if this is an all out nuclear exchange it won't matter anyway. The dozens of missle silos make all of MT a #1 target.

    It should warm up for a couple minutes, though.

    That's a good point, I wonder what Vermont is like from a missile silo standpoint. I want to live there.

    Some people have some serious problems with playing "let's pretend" around here.

    On hand rifles:
    1. M38 Mosin Nagant
    2. Romanian SKS
    3. Ruger 10/22
    4. My 12 ga pump

    If I could choose:
    1. An AK, any decent variant, really
    2. Some scoped rifle in the .308 - 30-06 range
    3. Ruger 10/22
    4. My 12 ga pump :)

    PS: If my pump shotty doesn't count as a rifle, then substitute a Mas 36/51 for ones on hand, and an SKS D for if I got to pick.

    azthistletoe,

    If you had a rifled bbl for your shotgun, then I can't see why it wouldn't count. (Nobody said it couldn't be adaptle to other purposes.) Heck, if I were running the show and you didn't have a rifled bbl, I'd say bring it anyways. You'd just have to promise to not use it until you found an appropriate bbl.

    Tallpine,

    I spent 5 years living at Malmstrom AFB there in Great Falls as a small child during the late '70's and early '80's. I vividly recall waking up from nightmares of Soviet missile strikes on the base. Curses on my dad for telling a 7 year old with a vivid imagination that he now lived in one of the top 10 targets of the Soviets.

    Yeah, they are all over up here, not just at the bases.

    You will be driving along and see a chain link fenced area out in a cow pasture, with an American flag flying over it. A bunch of them just up north of where I am.

    All of these are still active, AFAIK


    But some rogue nation or terrorists are not going to bother with our missle silos, as we might not even have a target to shoot back at. More likely hit some big population centers to get a body count.

    In that case, the biggest issue is people's reaction as they wonder "who's next?"

    I wouldn't recommend heading up here for wilderness right now, as the chill factor is below zero today.

    I only have 4 rifles so that would be:

    Weatherby .340
    Browning HighWall breech loader in .30-06
    Centrury FAL
    Bushmaster M17S

    If you include shotguns I'll trade my Browning for my Remington 11-87

    Just from what I have handy, an SKS, BRNO #1 .22LR, .308 Garand and a 91/59 Mosin Nagant. Couple that with a pair of 1911s and a CZ-75 (plus a kadet slide) for sidearms. I have loaded clips and mags for all of them. I figure that once I run out of ammo, I should be able to come across some more for at least one of them.

    Tallpine,

    My dad was a Facility Manager at those sites. Most of the time, he was at Foxtrot launch control facility. He's got some interesting stories about things they did to several of the young Lieutenants downstairs.

    One time they sent a snake down in the elevator, which was promptly shot as the doors opened. (To stay firearms related, it was shot with a S&W .38 SPL at point blank range.)

    Another time, soon after they changed from fresh prepared meals to some form of pre-made meals, an LT ordered my dad to provide him with a steak dinner. My dad called the local rancher, who was a former NCO himself. The kind rancher didn't give him a steak, but he did send over some veal, which was promptly sent down the elevator. For some reason though, the LT didn't like his dinner still alive. At least that one didn't get shot.

    My dad does occasionally have a good sense of humor. His nickname back then was 'Fearless Frank', cuz he didn't take no crap from anybody, regardless of rank.

    Frank

    One of the Model 12s.
    A Walther Model 2 semi-auto .22.
    One of my 1911s...
