If you had to pick one rifle, one shotgun and one pistol for a SHTF, civil unrest situation, NOT survival situation what would they be? Now that we have seen how easy it is to start a panic with the Corona virus thing. Lets say something like Argentina happens, the economy collapses, supply lines stop because people are hijacking Walmart and Publix trucks. Everyone panics and the store shelves are empty after 2 weeks, people are rioting. People are fighting over food like they do over electronics on black Friday. Armed gangs wearing funny masks are roving.

Anything will work for hunting if need be, I've seen everything from blk bear down taken with a 22.

SG- Benelli M2, M3 or M4 possibly the new IWI Tavor TS12. I run an M2 for 3 gun but the 3 and 4 may be as good or better.
Rifle- Home built 12.5" AR in 5.56 because of ammo BUT a short 300 suppressed may not be a bad idea if you need to be quiet. Can't believe I considered that. 1-4x 30mm scope, Geissele SD-3G or National match
pistol- I'll go with what I use for 3 gun, Glock 34 with Ghost trigger parts.

On other forums they argue for hours whether a KAC, LMT, BCM, or HK MR556A1 would be the best without a mention of a Galil, AK, Tavor or SCAR.

Some folks like to argue about things that don't matter. I would feel perfectly comfortable with a PSA carbine if that is what I had.

If I’m home, my grab and go will be my ARP barreled LR308. If I’m out and about, my new ARP 223W 3R that I’m waiting on the barrel now to finish build.

Ammo. I don't need to what-if, what should I have? I just need more ammo.

Old school stuff for the most part, AR, Ithaca model 37, 45 ACP commander...after 40 years of hauling these things around i’ve gotten used to em. The only thing that’s changed is the AR, it’s a little lighter and more compact with a modified tipping block bolt system and the 45’s blue is all worn off of one side and is on it’s third barrel.

What matters is that you still kick as hard. Naw... "ugly 'em to death"... that's my job.

If it is what we already have then here is what I would go with:
1. my 11" 5.56 upper with can and 1-6x Primary Arms scope.
2. my M&P 2.0 9mm It's my comp gun so very comfortable with it. Also I have a can for it.
3. my Remington 11-86 with red dot.
4. Martin Onza set at 70lbs with mechanical broadheads that expand to 1.5" cutting diameter. Pretty good with it out to 70 or 80 yards. It's even quieter than my AR9 with subs.

As assumed I have had my tinfoil hat on for a few weeks. Most of you know I've had this business going since 2008 full time. Things are different this spring, the people ordering, how much they are ordering and what they are ordering. Panic, preparation or maybe they found the tinfoil too? Maybe it's just tax refund season on top of stimulus checks on top of people being stuck at home bored and they have been playing Call of Duty a little too much.
