    Keep it simple. I like the tried and trued .22 and 06 rounds & 12 ga. Same with weapons. Planning to dig in at home and ride out the event. If we have to go. It will be with the lightest stuff to carry.
    Its all dependent on situations and plans exactly what to take for defense.

    That is why I took up reloading my own ammo. I never pass the gun store without buying primers, powder or projectiles. This stuff (along with ammo) will be used for trade as well if things go sideways. Just a thought.

    Do you mean being sort of near Indonesia? Maybe some of you guys have LE "Jungle Carbines", or a #4?
    If so, you might enjoy Youtube: "Jollygreenslug": he's over there in "Oz".

    Cautious Bob:
    The price/value and dependability of a MN can't be surpassed, but my first Mauser (Yugo 48A) allows me to hit a target at 50 yards in a much smaller group with surplus Yugo/Rom. 8mm ammo, than with both of my MN 44s, bayos extended or retracted.

    The groups with my former MN 44s (bright bore/good rifling did not help me much) and common Bulgarian x54R were terrible.

    I'm sorry that I sidetracked your interesting topic away from just a choice of guns, but the vast majority of people would be stuck if fuel can not be pumped up.
    The lack of clean water in the summer would be very nasty (where cottonmouth snakes and farm chemicals float by) or deadly, unless pur. tablets are handy.

    His videos are interesting and informative.

    You might also enjoy typing into Youtube, "420 yards". A guy in northern CA compares muzzle and 420 yard energy of several rifles, and appears to attempt part of "the mad minute".

    If your looking for the best pistol and old mil and modern rifle ammo it would be 9mm.That and 223 would be the most common ammo in a bug out sit.308 would be very common but not for a pistol.223 wouid also be very common and even 7.62x39 for a rifle or pistol

    I took "one shot" with my Eddystone US Model of 1917 yesterday.

    Iron Sights, 8 Inch Target, 400 Yards

    It may not be able to shoot as well as my Howa...

    Iron Sights VS Scope

    ...so I will use the Eddystone and have a less experienced shooter use the Howa.

    I agree on the SKS - GREAT little piece.

    03 is good too -

    Shoot, come to think of it, there are a LOT of good ones -

    There ya go all it takes is one shot. I like the bolt rifle because they do have a certain accuracy in their design.
