What gun/guns would you take??

If you had to evac your house tomorrow what guns would you take with you? Tell us why?

First one that I would be grabbing would be the 22lr(ruger charger 10/22). This may suprise some of you but with the size and the amount of 22 shells that I have it wold last me a while and for the most part with the exception of a bear I could kill what I needed for food. My second gun would probably be my tika t3 lite in 338 federal for the reason that I have about 300 shells loaded and if I had the time to pack I could put the reloader in the truck and be good for about another 300 shells. I forgot that I would also have my ccw s&w sigma 9mm have about 300 shells or so for it as well?

Lets hear what you would take???

If we're talking a bug out situation the Savage bolt .22 LR goes first. I would also grab a 30-06 because there are somethings the .22 can't do. Lastly a .38 revolver because you never know when you'll need it.

Re: What gun/guns would you take??

Probably my Oly Arms AR-15. Since the reason for the evacuation was not explained, I'm going to have to assume that it's not because I'm starving, but because of some sort of human threat. In that case, I definitely want a semi-auto, and something with enough oomph that I will be able to take out targets at 100m and beyond in order to protect me and mine. Following that logic, I'll have the Sig 9mm on the hip for quick close range combat. .223 and 9mm ammo is everywhere.

I don't think it's going to come as any surprise that the ARs will be represented in opinions with this kind of topic.

I just don't think I'd take a shotgun. The shells are too large and take up too much room and the guns are too long and harder to transport.

I'd take all of my guns. No gun left behind.

A gun is only one thing that you would want to take..Clothing must be considered, some food perhaps,first aid supplies...All of this doesn't leave a lot of room for weapons....I'd probably take a solitary 22 and stuff my pockets with ammo.
