Hey Smoke, I just ordered a Sig 2022 in 9 mm. I'm sure it'll have plenty-O-stopping power against all the hordes of bath salt tripping, nude, face eating zombies that come knocking at my door, right? :lol:
well....it should work but these guys are crazy. i mean who walks around nude anyway? :rofl:

Anything bigger than a 380acp.


For me to have just one firearm things must be going VERY badly for me.

If I still had my Sub-2000 in .40cal with the 22rd hate sticks, Id go with that.
But I guess I'd bring my FNP-40 w/ TLR-3.

Fantasy wise... a green lightsaber. Yeah :awesome:

That's a Model 12, not an M1897. Still, it's a nice gun. :)

On topic, I'd be comfortable with my SKS since it's the one gun I own that I've had the most trigger time with.

AR with a piston converstion. Along with a battery-less optic (Trijicon RX30 is what I am currently running).
Also keep a small parts kit and tools in the grip.

Only one? Hmm...

Well, I would want something easily concealable, easy to carry, and quick to draw. Since I'm not legally allowed SBR's or machine-guns, that likely means a pistol.

Next, I would want something semi-automatic and in a common caliber. That means I'm pretty much looking at 9mm, .40 S&W, or .45 acp.

Out of the three, I'd choose .40 S&W since it essentially has the best balance of trajectory, energy, bullet weight, and magazine capacity.

Finally, since I might have to hunt with it, I'd want a longer barrel and sight picture.


Put all that together and it sounds like a Glock 24 or 35 comes pretty close.

Post by David White » Tue Oct 09, 2012 10:01 pm

I would use my current gun(s).

Ruger SR40 with 135grn Corbon @ 1325fps and 526fpe

Ruger P95 with 135grn Critical Duty

Equip both with Laser and Light. That should do the job.

it would probably be a remington 870 with vast choice of ammo and good quality and accurate slug for big game .

One gun? It's a toss-up between my AR and my 870...but, I think due to the extended range and lighter ammo, it would have to be my AR.
