Since the OP edited the topic since my reply I need to reply again. If it's only for 3-5 days I'll keep my 10/22 and knock it back to 500 rounds of ammo and I will also bring along my 1911 with 50 rounds of .45. My BOB is already packed with two MRE's, and I have two more in the trunk of my car. 3-5 days and my main focus is going to be on not being detected and finding water. This is of course per the OP's rules of having to run out of the house with little to no notice. I keep a Get Home Bag in the car as well. I try to keep at least 2 qt's of water on or near me as well, mainly because I take that much to work with me everyday just to drink. Now if I have to take the wife and kids with me, the whole thing changes and my plan is to head to her sisters place but that is 1.5 hrs by car, which means in a true SHTF situation it might take days to get there. If that were ever to happen, my thought is that I would have at least a few days notice and be able to be long gone before trouble came to my door step.

OK, I'll play. Instead of taking a defensive mode, I will be on the offensive and will stalk the enemy in sniper fashion. I will use my Ruger #1 single shot in .225 Winchester and will have loaded up about 400 rounds of 40 grain Hornady Zmax at a screaming 3900 fps when the enemy offered head shots so I could see the heads explode like a pumpkin. I would also have about 600 rounds of 55 grain Hornady sp loaded to around 3400 fps for body shots and for hunting deer and hogs and such for survival meat.

Colt AR-15M4, and basic load out of 210 rounds. Lighter and mini Maglite.

I keep two half gallon containers (milk jugs) of water, and two boxes of pop-tarts in the truck. I keep a lot of other stuff in the truck as well, but if I had to leave the truck, that's what I'd carry for 3-5 days.

If I could stay with the truck, I'm good for 3-4 weeks.

Now we know where to get a free AR and how long to wait to pick it up. Newsflash -- it ain't 3-4 weeks. LOL You can't make this stuff up!

ANother one of these dopey threads eh? OK Short term!? AR Carbine too, otherwise, probably a Ruger 77 All-Weather in .22 Mag w/the same seven lbs. of FMJ ammo Locutus constrained himself to, and the poncho.

if you have to depend on it to survive do you really want a cheep gun? i say a good .22 rifle and a pancho. batts are going to go dead and lighter fuel will run out but i still have some shelter.
