Best round for End of the World.
 
Given a catastrophic, world-changing event, what is the best caliber to have on hand? I was thinking of what would be most available by scavenging, law suppy, military supply, theft, etc..........Oh, I mean hand gun, by the way.

Actually, now that I think of it, how about shotgun and rifle round also?

The one that your gun is chambered for, in vast quantities.

I think this would depend on your storage/carry availability. Shotguns are effective but very bulky. Id rather have a pocket full of .45 rather then a dozen shotgun shells.

not me my chances of hittin my target are geatly increased with a shotgun depends on type situation i got nuff guns to supply a army so i dont worry about 1 gun but id chose my 12 guage if had to
