Skip to comments.Five Guns and Only Five Guns, Forever

The conversation was about internet marketing and it was with my friend Jon Gibbon of armslist.com. Then out of the blue Jon asked me If you could only have one gun the rest of your life what would it be? Hmmm I guess it would be my Remington 870. I figured I could hunt big and small game, defend the home patch and nothing stops like a 12 gauge slug. You can stop a charging dump truck with a 12 gauge slug.
Then the conversation moved to: What would you take if you could only have five guns the rest of your life? Yes, I know this is America, and we have the luxury of owning as many guns as we would like. Im a person that gets a Christmas card from Ruger. I have four 30-06s and was disappointed that in 2006 there wasnt a parade in honor of its 100th anniversary.
(Excerpt) Read more at dailycaller.com ...
ruger 10/22, mossy 500, 700 remington, S&W 686, 1911 are my picks
MP5,M16,700 Remington,500 Mossberg and 1911.These are my tools of choice.
But wow, if I could own five guns, I'd start with an electric Gatling....
Five 12 ga.
I would be perfectly happy with your picks. Mine would be similar.
A Winchester model 52 sporter in .22LR. A Remington 1187 12 gauge with two barrels, one a 26 inch the other an 18 inch, both with multi chokes. An S&W model 29 .44 mag. A SIG P226. I could substitute a Browning Hi-Power, a Colt series 70 1911, or several other 9mm or .45 caliber pistols and be happy.
If I could add a couple more they would be a Colt Woodsman and a Ruger 10/22.
I could swap the 700 for a FAL or the 10/22 for a Marlin 60.
Saiga 12 w/drum:
Or Benelli Supernova:
A coach gun of some sort
The Marlin is typically more accurate than the 10/22 and cheaper to boot. The edge goes to the 10/22 because of the quick change mags and all the accessories.
I could swap any one of my choices for several other models and not lose anything really.
Remington 870 12 gauge
S&W model 19 .357

I’m a total gun n00b. Fully support 2nd and AZ’s open carry. Now, my father just gave me a gorgeous Henry 22 Magnum lever action rifle.
