Weapons Arsenal
Im looking to collect the perfect weapons arsenal for a SHTF fan scenario and for all around use like hunting, plinking and on the job use, ect (I may join a police force when I turn 21.).

So basically I want to know what you guys think about this arsenal?
1. Springfield XDM 9mm-Most common pistol caliber worldwide, lightweight.
2. Springield Loaded Tactical Combat .45ACP-Dependable and awesome.
3. Stag Arms AR-15 Model T2 5.56-Accurate and compact.
4. Makarov 9x18Mak-Reliable and easy to conceal.
5. Saiga 7.62x39-Reliable AK style.
6. Mossberg 500A1 12Ga-Reliable hunting weapon, common.
7. Remington 700 30-06-Long range and reliable.
8. Springfield M1A .308-Awesome.

Any thoughts on how I could improve this arsenal?
My limit is ten guns.

Well I think you need eleven guns for your collection to be considered an arsenal. But I would throw in a bolt-action chambered in .30-06 to eliminate zombies from long distances.

Lmao, funny that you mentioned that.
I accidentally forget to type #7 which is a Remington 700 in 30-06.
Just what Doc ordered. =)

Maybe my eyes are deceiving me, but I don't see any M14 variants on your list.

Hello? No M14, no arsenal.

And put a Marlin 39A .22 on that list, as well.

Hey-you-guys 09-24-2009 10:55 PM

My grandpa was in Marine Recon. He said the M14 was the best rifle he ever fired.

I was thinking about an M14 variant for a long time so as soon as you mentioned one I knew I should add it to my list! =) As for the .22, I already own a Ruger. I think that'll complete my dream gun collection but if anyone else has suggestions, Im listening.
I want to add a rifle with the bull pup design but theyre so pricey.
Im also thinking of adding a Glock but I dont want to become a Glock addict.
If I buy too many I wont be able to shoot them all! -_- lol.

I just added a Ruger 1022 to my safe. At least after the ten day Calif gun jail sentance it will be in my safe.:D:eek::D

Yep, thats what I own. I also have a 30 round magazine to go with it. =)

FWIW, this is a link to a pretty good blog by a gent that is a professor of veterinary medicine at Viginia Tech. On the green bar at left, scroll ALL the way down until you come to an article called "The Minimum Battery". You COULD do a lot worse than following the outline he gives.

I would have a hard time deciding which 10 of my children I would keep, and which I would orphan! Yes, the 12 g is a must, but the 20 makes such as good dove gun, and the 410 is really fun for quail, and that 16 was such a bargain.........:rolleyes:
