    That's a huge question to answer. Can to offer a little more information? Do you have anything in mind? because my first thought is that those three activities all require a weapon of their own but there are a couple that could possibly work for all 3.

    Hey cane, are you going to defend your house with that? I couldn't imagine shooting that thing at an intruder at a distance of 20ft while INSIDE. Sure it would do the job but you better make the first shot count.

    I vote shotgun. Nothing is more versatile than a 12 gauge. You can hunt anything from deer to doves, near perfect for home defense, and a formidable weapon in case of SHTF.

    I have an SKS that i love, but home defense would go to my Mossberg 500 with the 18.5" barrel. Now, if war breaks out or zombies attack, i would probably be putting the SKS to use with its increased range & larger magazines.

    Check Mossberg 500 and Remington 870...both can be had w/ interchangeable barrel for around your budget.

    Yeah, I got a Mossberg like that, and it would fit the bill.

    Or, shop around, spend a couple more hundred, and get a Garand...

    But I would suggest maybe a 12 gauge rifled barrel Mossy or Remington shotty, load up on buckshot for inside shooting and sabot slugs for outside. :cool:

    Cool toy, but can you believe that in California, that gun is listed in the same catagory as a sawed off shotgun and is therefor illegal to own.....

    go figure.....

    So, The Guvanator can't get a Governor pistol? WEAK! After all the roids, that boy probably has a lot to make up for. :p

    Mosin Nagant, you might be able to find a remington 870 for under $300 shotguns are pretty much good for hunting, self protection and zombies.

    If you are going to use it for self defense just make sure you can mount a bayonet.

    Mosin-Nagant M44 comes with bayonet can be found for about $100 and ammo is readily available and just plain fun to shoot.

    get a mossberg shotgun 12 gauge 20 gauge nothing less nothing more. you could probably get two maverick shotguns for about 400 and they are made by mossberg.

    pistol for $300. ruger p95 9mm. built like a tank and shoot reliably.

    I would stay away from that $100 rifle because termintes would destroy it, it could get water logged or rot lol. seriously.
