Re: If the stuff really hits the fan.
The SKS or Mini 30 with a larger magazine would work at a self-defense distance, although many people in real life civilian situations have displayed a handgun to resolve situations, due to better portability.
My LE "Jungle Carbines" are also very handy as back-up to semi-auto rifles, as I have no handguns.
One shot from the "Jungle Carbine" grabbed the attention of a "Wildlife/Fisheries" Officer.
It sounded to him like a black powder rifle (they must be really loud). Weeks ago he was looking for people who violated the hunting regs.
