    If you could only only Three guns what would you choose?

    I think for a SHTF event

    Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun

    Rifle - AR15 variant in 5.56
    Pistol-Sig P220 .45
    Shotgun- Remington 11-87 (short barrel 12G)

    If I could only own Three Guns because of some type of restiction/law I would choose

    Rifle - AR15 variant in 5.56 or .300BLK
    Pistol- Luger P08
    Shotgun-Classic old side by side shotgun in 12 or 20

    What would you guys choose? 3 guns for either SHTF or just because?

    3 and only 3?

    Dang!

    Well here it goes..
    My three for if they passed a law where you could only own one of each:

    Rifle:
    Standard stamped Fixed stock AK (7.62x39)

    Pistol:
    1911, I shoot very well with them.

    Shotgun:
    Mossberg 930 with 24" barrel
    (semi auto fun)

    My 3 top picks for SHTF
    Rifle: AK (7.62x39) any rifle variant

    Pistol: Glock 17
    (33rnd mags are hard to beat)

    Shotgun: Rem 870

    All three are proven, tough designs and are capable of holding a bit of ammo.

    AKm47
    Glock 19
    Mosssberg 500

    That was easy lol

    Now... the AK will have 76 round drum mags, the glock will have 33 round mags, and the shotgun may or may not have some dragon's breath lol.

    Even though I own several I have no real use for a shotgun so that's out of the picture for me and even just less than a year ago I would have also had an AK on the list but times have changed and so have my taste.

    So my three choices would be my:
    Glock 19
    Colt SOCOM AR 15
    AR15 Pistol 11.5 BBL

    Silly Question

    If I could for some unknown binding reason only own 3 firearms

    Of those firearms I currently own

    C1905 Winchester Model 1895 rifle 28" bbl in 30-40 gov.

    CZ Canvasback 12ga O/U shotgun

    Remington R-1 custom 1911 .45acp

    As they are the three most valuable in each of the three main categories of firearms.

    And since I am sure my wife could only own 3 as well

    Springfield M-1 Grand

    Inland M1 Carbine

    Remington Wingmaster with 20" and 28" barrels

    If had 3 guns, I could just use those guns to get more guns. :cool:

    But hypothetically speaking:

    1) M60E3
    2) M82A1 Barrett
    3) Shiloh Sharps Quigley Rifle

    Man or beast--They could all be reached :D

    I tried to think what I would add to the mix, but have the firearms I would want.

    I always wanted a Nice 7mm Remington , but so far have not picked up one.

    Quality AR with a top brand BCG like BCM....or a whole BCM AR

    870 12 GA. They are tough guns. I had an 18" rifle sighted barrel

    Love my 92FS with all the mags/ammo I could carry for the three weapons.

    OK, you didn't say anything about ammo availability.
    SHTF:
    Saiga 12 Full Auto
    Glock 19 Full Auto
    M16 Assault Rifle

    All other times:
    I'm incapable of limiting myself to three.
