Something I've been pondering lately: For a SHTF rifle, which would be better? A well-used milsurp like an SKS, Mosin, Mauser or Garand or a shiny new AR or AK? The Milsurps are obviously reliable and the ammo is relatively cheap and already packed in spam cans for most of them, but you can't say that they haven't already had a lot of their life used up by their original owners. On the other hand, a shiny new rifle is just that; shiny and new. Not broken in, not battle tested, and the ammo (at least for the AR) is far more expensive. Any thoughts?
