Mossberg 500---It serves multiple functions, it can be a HD gun, a deer gun, a fowler etc. 12ga is plentiful and cheap and post SHTF, it will still be around....but WILL be very valuable.
Ruger P95----9mm is a super common round much like the 12ga. Mine is stainless=less potential rust issues. Also, i can pilfer ammo from those blue helmets if it ever comes to that.
1911 .45acp----again a common round that will be around. Mine is a Commander so it can carry/conceal it pretty easy. This pistol will be strictly for HD/SD.
Marlin Model 60 .22----.22 is THE MOST common round and is insanely cheap to stock pile. I bet I have 10,000 rounds or close. This will be my main food rifle. Squirrel and rabbits are everywhere, even in the city and a .22 not destroy much meat. With a scope head shots are not a problem from 25-40 yards..
Ruger Single Ten----Again in stainless. See reason above for a .22 only I need a pistol.
Mosin Nagant----Long range deer/bigger game. Cheap surplus ammo allows me to stock up.
I do need a larger caliber rifle in a more common caliber than the 54r, but until I can get my dads Model 94 from my brother, I'll just have to go buy a Model 70.
Now if I had to bug out in a hurry and could not take all the firearms listed, I would take the 9mm and the 12ga. However I do have the 12ga, 9mm and the Marlin cased up all together and ready to go. My .45 is in a holster in the nightstand. I could be packed and gone in under 15min with everything I listed, plus 15 gallons of water and food for two weeks.
If/when SHTF, I don't think I'll have to worry about getting out in a hurry. Those of us that like to stay prepared also tend to see things coming (I hope). I try to always keep my Jeep full of fuel and at least 20 gallons of fuel in jerry cans.

Sounds like a good plan. Not sure I would take a 1911 over a glock or M&P in .45 for shtf simply due to capacity, weight, and ease of replacement parts.

I would also rather the mossy in 20ga for ths same reasons as listed above, small shells = more shells and you lose next to nothing as far as round performance (except when using shot loads you will have slightly fewer pieces of shot). Its easier on the shoulder as well. :-)

This, of course, is just a matter of personal preference by the by...

It's simple for me, with my 1911 I hit where I aim, not so much with Glocks. I've never owned a M&P, but have shot them and they are nice. I've had a few Glocks and I just don't do well with them. My 9mm has plenty of capacity if I need that and in a SHTF situation BOTH will be on my person with extra mags.

cheaperthandirt has RIO royal brand??,12ga 00buck a 250rd case for 99.79 im not sure how good they are? but hey,@ 2.50 per 5 rounds is a pretty good deal for buck shot.reminds me of the wolf brand slugs or 00buck prices a few years back. 2 dollars a box
Ive used rio buckshot and slugs in my mossberg 500 out pf about 200-300 rounds only two Ftf not bad for the price its really good ammo

Way too many failures for me -- never had a failure to feed in a 500, but then again I never shot Rio shells, not even for Trap.
