No sir, Wild, not in that configuration but, it is available.
Very true. Be well acquainted with your gun and know your shot placement.
About as important as the caliber you shoot.
This reminds me of a sort of "mantra" a guy at another board always chants, whenever the subject of "home protection" comes up.
He says, just because you only have [place name of perceived "under" gun here], doesn't mean you necessarily have to curl up and die.
You can still use it...its ok.
I feel this line of thinking is likely the mentality Bella Twin went with.
In her mind, she had a gun and felt she needed to defend herself. It probably never occurred to her that the performance of the round is considered an almost ridiculous mismatch against her oppressor.
...hmmm....maybe ignorance is bliss!
...now you guys have gotten to me. Screw it, I'm changing my answer!
Keystone Crickett .22 Adult rifle
Because they're inexpensive yet accurate and will do everything I require of it.
Nah...think big. 30mm Chain Gun attached to an Apache helo.
Followed closely by a squadron of A10's
Got interrupted last night before I finished my post. The way any gun maker of repute would want to make it today would be with the '06 on the bottom, 12 or 16 bore on top with the 22 most likely on the right side. If you wanted a SXS, all makers would want the 22 in the top rail.
Why are they so particular about the arrangement these days?
Particular these days? That's the way they've been done since they started making them. I don't know that I've ever seen a drilling in that configuration with anything other than the high powered, centerfire rifle on the bottom, shotgun on top and small caliber rifle on one side or the other, usually the right. On a drilling with a rimfire, and I've never seen one, they would put it in the same place they would put the small bore centerfire cartridge, almost always in the rail as there isn't room between the ribs as there is on a vierling.
Then why specifiy "today"?
"The way any gun maker of repute would want to make it today..."
Figure of speech, I guess. No biggee, just wondering....and yeah, you're right, that's the only way I've ever seen any of those guns configured as well.
It just sounded like they may have made them differently in days past.
No problem. Today, because the gun isn't going to be built yesterday..... As in the past, most would probably build whatever a person is willing to pay for, as long as it's a safe concept. However....we are talking about what would be a fairly high end, custom arm, and, today a lot of those builders in Germany and Austria are so far behind that if a person insisted on a thing being their way and the builder didn't agree they would probably escort a buyer to the door. Today, those who will still build some kind of drilling or vierling are the best in the world at doing so. However, they are still of hard headed, independent, German extraction.....jes' like me!!!.....
I think if I could only have one gun I would go with the rifle/shotgun combo. That way I could have the best of both worlds. If I wanted to be real fancy I`d go with a Drilling or something similar.
+ 1 on a Shotgun.
I guess it would depend on the scenario I was in when SHTF happened.
If I was out at the family farm, I wouldn’t have to worry about many humans for awhile. My 12 shot .22 semi auto rifle would suit my needs. I could pick off small game for food and .22 would keep most larger critters common to the area at bay.
If I were in town, I’d keep my Beretta 92FS. 15 rounds of 9mm is fairly effective in most situations involving multiple people. It would suit me until I got out of town anyway. I could still trap for food and again, 9mm would be pretty persuasive at keeping away larger critters.
If SHTF happens and the government is coming for me, a .50 BMG mounted on my SUV would be my choice.
My vote would be a Winchester Model 70 in 257 Roberts. I appreciate that with reloading I can make it take anything from varmints to medium game. In my area, that's the only abundant game that would be worth hunting to have enough meat in the freezer and cooking pot, plus efficient in ammo spent per pounds of meat harvested.
This is an easy one. I have a general all-around gun I call (The Answer) because it is the answer to this Beverly question, however I rarely use it.It is a Savage 24V in triple deuce over 20 gauge.
