Default 762x39 vs 556x45

Lets pretend the governent shutdown stopped giving people welfare checks and foodstamps, wic and stopped helping all the poor people, and riots all across america broke out people are hungry and desperate and will kill you for water and food, What do you guys think is the better round for emergencies? What would you pick if the shtf? I would probably pick 762x39 since its able to punch through cinderblocks, car doors, and wood alot better than 556, but then again 556 can get quicker follow up shots and you can shoot the wings off a fly with it and its lightweight so you can carry more so for offense, id choose 556 for defense, id use 762x39 this is a 762x39 vs 556x45 only pretend your neighbor is issuing out weapons to you but he only has 556 an 762x39 you can choose only one what would you pick!

What ever he has ammo for. Nice not to rely on neighbors. The platform is also a huge thought. If there was a mob of 40-50 people coming towards my house w/ people peeling off and looting my neighbors homes, I'd probably grab something that will make a statement. Something that the fireball could be seen 100 yards away in daylight and would plow through 8-10 people. I'd take 10 rounds of 286gr 9.3x57 over a 30 round poodle shooter any day. Add my 2 sons w/ 6.5x55 bolt guns and it is all over in short order. Americans are p@ssys. Even a couple rounds of buck shot would turn any mob around. Violence of action is the name of the game.

I have I only sleep in Maine and I agree with JPatterson most Americans at this point are (what he said)!
The point is I would take the 7.62x39 weapon because I have 4000 rounds of 7.62 x 39 at home. So another AK or SKS would be more than welcome!

Consider what the founders put on the line vs. what "We the People" are willing to lay down, and its a no contest! They risked it all and most paid the full price!
Most of "We the People" are soft, complacent, and even indifferent to the corruption "WE" have allowed!
Wake the F**K up we are being consumed one little tid-bit at a time by the far left liberals because "We" are complacent and comfortable!

I I would pick 5.56 since i have ample supply of the ammo.

I also feel the rifles that shoot it tend to be more accurate so i can make the most out of the ammo i do have

a 12 ga. and lots of buckshot makes a much better visual statement than either 5.56 or 7.62x39!

Grew up outside NYC, shot in ranges inside schools back then, Moved to Colorado after college, That was in RI. Hunted from the Atlantic to the Continental divide and a bit more west. I'm at home in the Latino inner city or deep woods. I think I'm well rounded. If you don't make a stand, a statement, you are a target. Make it ugly, make it loud. Now a question for you, have you ever been stabbed? Gone 4 on 1 w/ people that really want to do you major harm?? Your the 1 just in case your wondering. I'll be happy to take you to some places that will open your eyes.
