This is a fine list and whomever recovers them (following your predictable zombie consumption) will greatly appreciate your exquisite taste for quality when they commandeer your collection. And your eternal soul will be thankful if it is dispatched by one of these fine weapons.
Seriously though...SHTF (whatever among the two dozen senarios you might imagine)...Shotguns are probably the most versatile option. Rifles matter. Long range matters. High capacity matters. Sound suppression matters.
So I guess I'd prefer an SBR AR-15, 18" AR-10 (308win), Ruger 10/22, and Ruger 22lr pistol...all suppression enabled. And I'll take an FNP 12ga semiauto SG. And then I'll take a high capacity 9mm. My choice will be a Glock 19. I don't think for a second it's the greatest 9mm out there (love XD/XDM, BHP, CZ 75), but similar models and parts are everywhere...and that matters. And it's light, concealable, and high capacity.
Oh wait, that's six? And I still want a 1911? And a 4-6" 357mag revolver feels like a must, right? You get the point. Thank God we're not actually limited to five.
