    1911A1 45 ACP and the two ammo cans just below it. You didn't say how big the box had to be.

    For me it's my Beretta PX4 Storm .45 and like the others have said the 2 boxes on top of the pile are coming with me.

    Actually all I have to do is grab my go bag and a couple ammo cans and I can have 3K rounds of ammo for my handgun and shotgun out in my truck in about 2 mins. :D

    I would have more than one weapon. I would grab my Ruger P95 and Hi Point carbine. 2 boxes of 9mm ammo and I am ready to go.

    My Ruger 1911, but not two boxes of ammo. I am holding my ground where I am at. My home is my home and I am staying here. There are also a number of elderly that live around me that a lot of scumbags would try to take advantage of. They will have to get past me if I have anything to say about it.

    I like the GP100. That is one heck of a great gun. My GP100 DA is great and it is a fun gun to try and shoot bunnies with. I cut the main spring down and polished the action and it is pretty smooth. However, now every once in a while it won't fire a primer off so I am going to order a Wolff mainspring for it.

    Good gun A.D. I will never sell mine.

    Its not the gun, it the guy shooting it. Your not shooting it right. Probably never will. Why don't you just send it over to me. Mine needs a brother:D

    Take a shovel, take a woven tarp and assume my position on the hill behind the house.
    I'm not bugging out and letting the scum bags in the bario below have my house to themselves. They all know where the two white Marines live, and they pretty much stay away.

    And, for right now, that sidearm would be my .380 until I can buy my .45 for Christmas.

    I guess I can't quite figure out why folks are living someplace they feel they have to escape from, unless they're trapped by a job or something. Might be worthwhile to re-evaluate that and set up someplace else before they are forced to.

    I'm 68, been living here for 13 years, and plan on dying within 100 ft of where I'm sitting right now. Hopefully not soon tho. :)

    I'm with you Gunny - I'm not going anywhere. We bought our house in the mountains for cash and we're staying put!

    Nice area you got there. Been thru ID a few times, but never close to Moore. A bit too cold in the winter there for me tho. :eek:

    I guess I'm like most folks. Spent most of my life in and around big cities, and thought at first that I'd miss the good parts of them. Didn't take long for me to find out that I didn't, and sure didn't miss the traffic, crime, noise, etc.. Plenty of that within a couple hours drive.

    Here, I can look out a window in the morning and evening and watch deer graze in the yard and harvest one every year without getting out of my PJ's ( or buck nekkid if I feel like it); or fire up my shop and build whatever I want without worrying about some idiot next door complaining to the Home Owners Association about how loud my planer is.

    I've got everything I want or need right here. I'd have to be some kinda damfool to bail out to someplace else, and leave all this behind. :)

    Is this in addition to what I'm already carrying on my belt?

    I normally carry a G20SF, a G29SF, and two to three spare mags. If I get to bring another gun, I guess it would be my Remington R1 1911.

    i wouldn't have to pack.. my go bag is already ready to go, gun included. currently has a 38 revolver and box of 50 ammo. half hp, half fmj.

    I do have other go bags.. that one is the absolute minimums, small pack, grab and go.. etc..

    if I had to grab another bag, or toss one to the wife and had a minute to load.. I might seriously pack one of my handguns that has a stock attachment so I could use it as a carbine.

    that would leave me a couple options in mauser types ( 9mm or 7.63 or 45cal ) or a hi power... if I grabbed a mauser.. it would surely be a 9mm or 45 variant.. of the 9's I have one with a fixed 20 and another with a removeable 10 and 20.. probably go with that one...

    If I had to go in a hurry and could only take 1 gun it would not be my handgun. It would be my Hi-point carbine in 45acp. I am not comfortable enough with my Taurus 44. The bag I keep my carbine in already has 17 ful mags in it, and I have 1 box ( an ammo can ) with 1400 rounds of 45 acp in it within arms reach of the bag.
