Gives me a reason to go pick up another gun I'm sure the wifey would love that...lol.

For my own personal guns, I've always believed that I should always have a large caliber bolt action that will drive tacks (.308), a shotgun, a pistol, a .22, and a semi automatic rifle (for SHTF and hunting). Those five guns cover pretty much every need you could have for a gun be it hunting or defense.

Should I get a shotgun first or a bolt action rifle? And should I get a 308 or a 30/06? I live in Tennessee. I went tonight and purchased some more 40cal ammo and two more mags for my glock, I also got a strip lula for my 5.56. Right now I have 610 rounds of 5.56, 2000 rounds of 22 lr, and 325 rounds of 40cal. How much should I plan on stock up on for each gun?

Get a shotgun next a good pump shotgun in 12ga. If your on blood thinners get a 20 ga. 870 or Mossberg 500 will do fine. Buy all the shells you can for it in all load sizes. Once you have a thousand rounds for each of your weapons and 6000 for the 22lr then get yourself a 308 and then work on getting 1000 rounds for it. I have seen a lot of 308 new with a scope for $325. The reason I tell you to have all that ammo is so you can take your weapons out on a date at least once a month. A person that doesn't practice with their weapons shouldn't be carrying them. Good luck and don't forget the food and water.

My issue is weight. How do you plan on carrying or even HAVING all of these weapons and the ammo along with your necessities on your back. Unless you just plan on sitting right in your home for a SHTF situation. And if you do, do you have the basic necessities to survive in the first place? (Food, clean water, etc.) If I had 2 abandon everything or if I was surviving, as far as stranded in the wilderness, I'd have my remington model 700 30-06 SPS, a 12 gauge, and a .22 pistol. Now if I was in a SHTF scenario like oh Idk... A zombie invasion, then I would have a ruger 10/22, an assault rifle, and a centerfire pistol. Now don't get me wrong, its never bad 2 have allot of guns and ammo, but I would designate certain guns for certain purposes.

You may need to be quiet to survive. Firing a rifle or pistol could give your location away and draw 2 legged predators. Consider these options.
Pellet gun, quiet and easy to carry 1000 rnds. (22 cal)
Sling shot and ball bearings or buckshot.
Bow and arrows or crossbow and bolts.
Silenced 22 rifle or pistol.
Snares and/or traps.
Throw net.
Basic fishing gear.

I would get the 12ga first. You might not need anything else after that? I've always believed in having five guns, but that's for my needs. I've always deer hunted and so I favor the .308. You've got an AR15 and that along with your other guns may do everything you need? There's not much you couldn't do with the AR15 in a SHTF situation so long as you're accurate with it.

I would recommend a 12ga. but go with what you're comfortable with. The only advantage I give a 12 over a 20 is available ammo in a SHTF situation. Being comfortable with the gun you're shooting is far more of an advantage than potential ammo availability.

As far as a cheap bolt gun goes, Savage makes a nice bolt gun that is pretty nice, Dick's Sporting Goods used to run specials on them alot I think the were Model 111 or something, they used to have scoped combos for around $400, they included the adjustable accu-trigger too.

Hope this helps!
I think you are thinking of the Savage Model 110 (Sporter). Fine gun. My son owns one.
