    What would you pick as your round of choice provided stuff goes seriously sour in the future. Would u stock up on multiple calibers or would u stick with 1 for your rifle and ur pistol?

    7.62x39 and .45 ACP, both FMJ

    That is if I had any guns.

    I'd go with 7.62 NATO. If everything goes sour, should be enough 'liberated' supplies of it.

    I own a .22, .223 (5.56), 9MM and a 30-06 WWII battle rifle

    I have 1000+ of .223 (Wylde chamber, uses both .223 and 5.56) plus a .22 conversion bolt

    aprox 300 of .22

    >20 30-06 (rarely used)

    1500+ 9MM primary CCW and most used at the range :what:



    In the US, I would keep my .223. Lots of ammo and parts for it. Same for my 9MM. 30-06 isn't used that often but has never failed, 9MM has never FT-Anything.

    Way to go, you have just given Obama a shopping list of what he can come and get at your house.

    Yep. I have it on good authority that Obama checks this forum daily. Come on folks, use just a little logic here. If the authorities really started confiscating guns, do you really think they are going to show up with a list they got from some website? No. If they have any suspicion that you have a gun, they are going to go through the entire house. They are not going to say "Well, at OCDO he only mentioned a M4 and a 1911, and we've got those. Pack up, move to the next house!". The paranoia around these forums is just un-frickin-believable lately.

    I'd stock up on whatever you favor to shoot... or may expect to shoot. Depending upon what you own. It'd be cost prohibitive to have all of it...

    I have maybe 3-4 favorite flavors of pistol, long gun and shotgun.

    They'll get 'em when you're at work. You'll come home and your door will be broken down and your safe empty.

    Personally? Whatever's readily available.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Different calibers and different guns have different uses. You need to know exactly what you want to be ready for when you stock up. "Seriously sour" could mean that they did a sweeping gun ban and you wanted to be able to still have enough to target shoot and hunt, or it could be that you are worried about a Red Dawn scenario of sorts.

    While I think it goes without saying to stock up on .22 ammo and have a reliable .22, a bigger caliber is always good to have. For an all around decent round that you can use for a variety of things, I think a .357 lever gun/revolver combo is a nice way to go. You can stock up on many thousands of primers, and if you had to, get by on home made black powder and scrounged lead bullets. It's ideal for little to nothing besides maybe brush hunting deer or smaller game, but it is capable of doing a lot.


    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    .50BMG is great. Fantastic acuracy and destructive power at long range.

    7.62 x 39 is good for the SKS. Already got lots of this stuff.

    Cheap and good is the 7.62x56R

    .223 is good for the mini 14 and SU-16. Get some AP and tracer.

    My best handguns are 9mm. JHP of course.

    .17HMR s for plinking

    and .22LR is for fun.

    To stock up for excrement in the air handler?

    I'm going to go off what guns I own currently.

    Lots of 9mm. Vary between JHP and FMJs.
    I'm probably alright on 7.62x54 (~400-500 rnds left from my case)

    Will need more 7.92x57. It's hard to argue with a K98 of any flavor

    Multiple bricks of Quality .22 (not Remington Bulk Pack -- dirty nasty stuff IMO)
    As much .22 Mag as I can get my hands on

    And as much 00 Buck and bird shot 12 guage ammo as I can find. I've got a start on some of that. I need to work on the rest
