    I can shoot far if I need, shoot many rounds one after another quickly, it has good knockdown power, I can most likely find ammo for it, (if in the US,) and I've always wanted to shoot one. :p

    M4A1 for a rifle, with a 1911 .45 on my hip.

    Yeah, that was my answer, except I'll add whichever one I have the most ammo for.

    My choice would be for the M16 & 1911 .45..........................I'm very familiar with these weapons and confident in using them. They've actually 'saved my bacon' on occaision so I have to go with what worked for me.

    Me too -
    M16 and 1911.

    When I used the M16 in the service, it was still called the AR15, because it had not been approved yet; we were the guinea pigs on that one. Fell in love with it then, and still am - -

    i would go with a 45 1911. it is concealable, and you can run with it easier than a rifle.

    M14. It is an extremely accurate rifle it can shoot at a great distance I love the iron sights and its very powerful.

    I'm going to second the M14. I'd probably carry a 9mm sidearm.

    IMHO,the A3 in .308 would be a best choice.

    How long will you be out there? If I have to feed myself, as well as protect myself, I would want a gun that could reach out and touch a target, as well have the fire power for CQB. I think of it this way, why would I grab a hand gun if I knew I was going to a gun fight? A shot gun would be a better choice, and a rifle, a better choice still. Just my opinion.

    I would want one of my M14s for power and long range and a .45 on the side.
