I won't be around to see the new stone age. Are you sure the tusk isn't wrapped with blue phone cord?
Blue phone cord is one of the colors that will be banned in the Phone Cord Control Act of 2029. Known as the PCCA. It will be considered too deadly and scary a color.
So stock up now is what you are saying? Because if so I have bad news...

Oooh I'll bite....

Budget:
PSA AR-15 mid length in 5.56
No shotty, spent all my money on the other 2!!
Glock 17

Gucci:
FN Scar 17s, Trijicon Accupower 1-8x, ATPIAL-C, and AAC 762 SDN-6
Remington 870 with side saddle
Glock 17 w/RMR - Suppressed ideally but whichever works, not too important.

It's really a toss up on Gucci because I have three fairly amazing setups to choose from and I dunno which I'd leave behind, but I liked something in Day By Day Armageddon about sometimes the 5.56 didn't have enough to fully penetrate the skull at off angles so maybe 7.62x51 would be better suited than taking multiple shots. Ammo weight not being a concern, I think it's a good choice.

As for gear, battle belt and chest rig all day budget or gucci, run with any assault style pack when away from the vehicle.

Wow, thinking back to 2010... I can't recall exactly what I'd have said for 3-gun in 2010, but I did make a post about what dream 'minimalist arsenal' I'd like in 2011... 10/22, 22/45, Marlin 336W, Remington 870 Express Super Magnum w/combo barrel, S&W M&P 9c, and a Kel-tec PF-9.. and a mosin... If that says anything other than "inexperienced" I'd love to know.

2020, I'd definitely take my DPMS LCAR, S&W 669, and Mossburg 500 (or 686 or M&P 9c!). Still not perfect, but there's a good reason I have them.

Current "Dream" 3-gun? uhh...
WWSD 2020 build, S&W 629 3", MR73 sniper? So, something not available yet and two revolvers... yeah, something like that. I guess? :roll:

2010: Arsenal AK, FEG HI-POWER, Marlin Model 60

2020: Arsenal AK, Feb Hi-Power, 10/22

A few years further back, and it would have been a Yugo underfolder, RIA 1911, and I probably would have been foolish enough to take the Mossberg 500 instead of the model 60.

Totally agree, although I would step it up to 22 magnum. Sometimes 22 LR will bounce off a skull. And there are some options today that didn't exist in 2010. So my 2020 list would be:

Pistol: Kel-Tec PMR-30
Rifle: Kel-Tec CMR-30 with Eotec or 1-4x optic
Shotgun: 410 Shockwave

That gives magazine compatibility between rifle and handgun and all the guns are pretty compact. I can slap a can on the rifle to quiet it up a bit. And the Shockwave is a nice form factor for up close- and the 410 is plenty for zeds and a lot lighter than the 12 gauge, especially with ammo included.

Good thread ,OP.

Mine would be

AR15- 14.5-16" barrel, free floated, red dot sight, 2 point sling and WML.

Ruger 10/22 with RDS and 2 point sling

9mm pistol - no idea what one as I'm always changing preferences lol , no optics maybe extended mag.

For LBE maybe a chest rig with three mags and a utility pouch , possibly a med kit. And a rigger belt set up with my pistol+2 mags and a rifle mag in bladetech mag carriers.

Excellent setup. I would want to add something for non-undead threats.

Three Beretta Neos carbines.

Configured: one in pistol form, one as an SBR, one as a carbine.
It's not looting if you leave a note.
