I would prefer my Ar in 5.56 and my .22lr bolt conversion to go with it , change it out from .223 to .22lr in about 20 seconds or less . I know there is ammo available in those calibers probably more than anything out there .

Mini 14 in .223.

Bolt action .22 mag would be a close second.

The 1st problem is rifle. There are 4 of us. If we stay home, I'm good for a while. Bet there will be more rifles around that the shooter had no ammo for. Ammo I've got. Reloading supplies I've got. Your all gonna die, and I get your rifle.
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.

A good M-4 type with an A.C.O.G., Holosight or Aimpoint, and you're well armed.

A properly placed round of M193 ball will kill anything you need to kill, and you can carry a helluva lot of them for the same weight as a small handful of 7.62X51.
When you go home, tell them of us and say:

"For your tomorrow, we gave our today."
