The last gun
 
You own you would go to if SHTF. Discounting reliability, I don't own any guns that aren't reliable. I'm thinking my single six. 6 shots of .22 out of a pistol is not going to accomplish much. Great gun for plinking but way to many other options. If I limit my choice to centerfire, probably my P64. Again, capacity would be the issue plus slow mag changes with the euro style mag release. Plus its only good for very short range with the tiny little sights. Rifle, I'd leave the mosin nagant in The safe. To heavy to carry around, ammo hard to find and I can't hit squat with it. Big heavy tough round though.

John Joseph 08-26-2019 04:19 PM

What exactly is this SHTF scenario which you're considering?

Andyk 08-26-2019 05:30 PM

I think they would be the last guns I would grab no matter the scenario.

sambob 08-26-2019 09:40 PM

"The last gun" I'd pick? Has got to be my Jennings J-22 while It will keep all shots on a chest sized target at 10yrds, It lives In my range bag...It's amusing and cheap to shoot.

dsk 08-26-2019 10:25 PM

My NAA .22LR mini-revolver. Absolutely useless as a firearm, even though it's well-made and incredibly cute. I'd rely on my Jennings J-22 before that thing, because a sharp knife is far more effective as a weapon.

John Joseph 08-27-2019 08:21 AM

My fantastic plastic squirt gun---transparent blue, near unlimited shots but she does leak a little--- kind of embarrassing for pocket carry.

2Amister 08-27-2019 09:37 AM

FN scar 17s...lets of ammo and i am good.

scubadad 08-27-2019 10:59 AM

I will just find my first wife and hide behind her. Once she starts bitching and whining the bad guys will run away or shoot themselves.

LOL.. now that's funny. Good one!

My scary black sporting rifle because of distance, accuracy and capability. Side arm, depends. SHTF I don't care about conceal-ability so probably either my P220 or 1911 for durability and up-close defense.

LOL.. ex-wives. If we could only know how to marry the 2nd one first..

What ever the local Leo's carry for type of ammo . G19 or G23

If the zombies are overrunning your position, whatever gun it is, just make sure to save that last BULLET, for you-know-what! :eek::eek::eek:

AustinWiseGuy 08-27-2019 03:06 PM

War Wagon, if zombies are overrunning your position, you just need to be faster than the next guy.

Recognize any of them Scubadad? I'm still laughing over that one.

My friend had his go out of time, just cycling the action. They certainly aren't made for repeated use. They're fun novelties though.

1911crazy 08-28-2019 01:00 AM

Last gun? I’m thinking about a game/ meat getter. Being stealthy is required because of uninvited guests. One shot and anyone in the area will come running.

Stealth= co2 pellet gun for smaller game there’s a co2 rifle for hog hunting. Very quiet when hunting. Even a BB gun. Next on the list is a 22 short single shot or pump, bolt rifle?

Think meat..?

Bigger guns for self defense if needed.

Zombies are we being warned on what’s to come?

OMG you're the only other person I know who actually bought one.
Oh and personally I'd grab the sharp knife before the Jennings:)

I think some of you guys are misinterpreting the original post. He asked which is the LAST gun you'd use out of your collection.

Besides the NAA .22 I have several others, but that's okay because not every firearm I bought was purchased with the intent of surviving World War III with it. I already have enough guns for World Wars III, IV, and V as it is.

bradsvette 08-28-2019 08:34 PM

Holy cow. Yes I misinterpreted the post, absolutely. The last gun in my collection I'd bug with if SHTF is... either one of my two pellet guns or my purple 410 pump shotgun. Nothing against the 410, but that ugly p.o.s. is the cheapest, lowest quality gun in my collection.

FNHipowerluv 08-28-2019 09:06 PM

My last would probably be might 410/45 LC Cobray/Leinad double barrel Derringer. Loading it is a chore, there is no extractors (I often have to pull cases out with a screwdriver or pocket knive, because of this.), the safety switch is sticky, and the small bird's head style grip makes recoil sharp and painful. I once fired a 3 inch magnum in this gun. I thought I broke my fingers at first. This is truly the worst gun I own.

Ginge 09-08-2019 06:58 PM

Ruger 10/22. I have others that are better suited for every application. Fun to shoot though.

My SHTF guns have always been my Steyr AUG A3 NATO stock (uses AR mags) and either one of my 1911's or Browning Hi Powers

silvermane_1911 10-17-2019 04:57 AM

My WASR 10/63, in fact even my 5.56/.223 AK.

USMM guy 10-17-2019 10:09 AM

Probably my Berretta model 21.
 
Or my Harrington and Richardson .22 revolver.

Mike Chapman 10-21-2019 08:50 PM

Main thing I want if I have to BO is fire power and reliability. So my choice is my Rock River Ar Op 3 with my eotech and my Sig P229 elite. If my wife comes with me she gets the FN s2000 gen1 and the XDm9. Going to have be a hell of reason to bug out as to leave all the other fine arms at home. I would do better to bug in.

I don't have a large collection, so they all come with me, none are "last" items.

The issue I have is, only 4 share 22lr cal, the rest are all different.

kwo51 10-22-2019 03:12 PM

Last used out of my collection is the Thompson black power gun.

1911crazy 10-22-2019 08:26 PM

The h&r revolvers and short 22’s make nice food getters too besides protection.

sixtus 11-01-2019 08:25 AM

Depend if long or short term. The guns I leave behind if its collapse of civilisation level are the biggest ones. The keeper is 22LR for me, in anything. Its multiple times cheaper and lighter than anything else, I'll be shooting years after the 9mm guys are empty and have reverted to using spears. Its more lethal than many think. Hardly a long range option but for comparison 22LR still has energy to penetrate 12" gelatin at 200 yards, check it on youtube. It goes straight through windshields, house doors, up to 12 layers of dry wall, and will kill hog or deer with base of ear shots. I have hunted with it here quite a bit, as its legal to do so. You are passing up more shots but its still a lot better than a bow and arrow.

dsk 11-02-2019 06:48 PM

What's disturbing is that the last guns most of us would want to have around in an emergency situation are pretty much the only ones the anti-gunners are remotely okay with us keeping. The more practical it is for serious use the more likely they want to ban it.

Get Out 11-03-2019 02:09 PM

I'm leaning towards long range guns first and as I run out of ammo work my way down to the last gun with ammo in the safe, my son's Red Ryder BB gun.

My J. Stevens Tip Up .22 would probably be the "last gun".

bmcgilvray 11-03-2019 09:26 PM

This Colt 4th Model .22 Short single-shot derringer that is kept on hand is almost good enough to qualify for a mention this thread.

Some pretty interesting comments here.

Actually with all things considered. I could likely do pretty well with some of my single shots. With the terrain around here and my knowledge of it. I would not dismiss it entirely.

If I can smoke you 500 yards + away from me, that M forgery might not do you all that much good. Just sayin.

pocketshaver 11-03-2019 11:54 PM

thing is, in a TRUE fecal matter in the ceiling fan situation...


you need something that will leave a big hole in something.

I had a Jennings J22. Loved that gun. Shot a bunch of ammo thru it. Paid $25 for it new and it worked fine right up until the time I sold it.

hntbambi 12-11-2019 08:15 PM

I would have to lean towards my GSG 1911 22lr or Ruger 22/45 and the screw on barrel extender. I can carry 500 rounds of ammo easily. It is a super quiet covert weapon as to not draw attention to myself or my location and can get the job done 90% of the time. The other 10% are covered with a Glock 19/17/34 and a 223 AR15.
