Crap tons of ammo and plenty of parts and cleaning kits too

Dream arsenal....
HK417/M14 set up as marksman rifle
NTW20 20mm/14.5mm anti-material rifle
MAG-58 when I'm feeling generous
105mm howitzer in direct fire with canister rounds to say 'good morning' to the hordes

in addition to about a million rounds of each small arms calibre, some grenades and a metalstorm system

I pretty much have what I need, buuuuttttt

I have a serious hard on for an MP-40, don't know why, just do. I'll take a tube gun. It's all cool. I actually think I'll start saving for one now.

While we're piling on, I want an

M16A2- for old times sake
M60- sameO
A case of hand grenades. I like hand grenades. It seems like a lot of problems start going away when that little dude heads downrange.

Well, my dream SHTF arsenal would go as this:

- AK-103 for general purpose use/fighting/scouting. It has all the nice things of the AK-74M while being 7.62x39. Wouldn't mind a colimator sight. handguard gets damn hot, but IDC

- FN-FAL for perimeter defense. (Doesn't leave the house/compound/s**t-hole)

- Glock 17 as sidearms. Browning Hi Power holds a place in my heart, but Glock is just so comfy and light.

- Mossberg 500 shotguns for doing some hunting, although that is assuming I've left inner city boundaries.

- Supressed MP5 just for the hell of it.

- As much ammunition as I can get. Most common stuff around here is 7.62x39, 7.62x51 and 9mm

- Assorted Kevlar helmets and body armor.

Were still dreaming ,,right ?

The Micro9 is a fairly new acquisition, about a year old. Before that, I pocket-carried a Kahr CM9. You wont survive much combat. Therefore, you wont need a lot of ammo. The only thing that makes sense is staying in your dugout during daylight hours, for about a year. By then, nearly every one will be dead (and the ammo nearly all gone) to make it a lot safer to be out scrounging what you need. total cost, about 4k, counting the 3 tax stamps, $200 each. Since I've got only 2k in my vehicle, and you've probably got 20k in yours, it's just a question of priorities, is it not? :-) My rent is $275 a month, yours is probably 3x as much. I can get a different vehicle or house tomorrow. Can you get such a battery of guns even in a week? Probably take you either 10k, or a year's wait to have them built. I can carry all my guns, and a backpack of food, water and gear. How about you?

Only cause you are quite ignorant about them. The backpack variant will only burn for about 1 minute and it's quite likely to leak and set you ablaze. Its effective range is just about 50 ft, too. You can smell the things from quite a distance, and at night, the needed igniter flame is a dead give away.
