Hey guys,

What are your top 10 favorite guns for any survival situation?

I keep seeing threads that say "What is your favorite survival weapon" and I see "AK-47, SKS, FAL" over and over again, so the mission of this thread is to see some other options. To start, mine are:

1. VZ-58
2. AK-47
3. SKS
4. FN-FAL
5. HK-91
6. Remington 700
7. Ruger Mini-30
8. SKS-D
9. Mosin Nagant M44
10. M1 Carbine

Just about anything. I plan on using .32 ACP in a chamber adapter for small game.

Plus, I think .22's will be available for next to nothing in the PAW. If I think I need one I'll pick one up then. Do have plenty of ammuntion of one.

This looks fun, I wanna play too
1. VZ58/CZ858 - Mine is a decked out CZ858 which has the longer barrel. These guns are amazing. Incredibly reliable, very accurate and more aftermarket crap than anything except maybe an AR15.
2. Stainless mini 14 - semi auto and stainless steel. That should be law.
3. Remington 870 Wingmaster 12 gauge. Nuf said.
4. 1911 - any flavour.
5. Ruger 10/22 - like who doesn't have at least one of these???
6. .30-06. Who cares what kind?
7. CZ-75 - just because there will always be 9mm around, and that pistol fits everyone's hand like a glove.
8. .22 pistol. Mine is a GSG 1911. There will always be a survival need that can be filled with a .22 pistol. Should be a no-brainer for everyone.
9. Did I already say a 1911? Well, how about a .30-30 then. Enough ammo lying around and the gun can be handled well by about everyone.
10. SKS. These gotta be the butt ugliest guns I have ever seen, but at their current price and the price of cheap milsurp ammo, everyone should have a crate of these guns just for handing out to friends in a time of need.

That was fun and educational. Thanks for letting me play. I am liking some of the choices of other people here too. It would probably be wise to have a .357 mag revolver too, but where would this then stop???

700 for when they are way far away

M1A and AR10 for when they get big in the scope

AR15 for when you can make out their conversation

XD45 just before they over run your position
