It depends on the nature of that crisis. If it was roving hordes and gangs looting, etc, my bushie AR.

If I was out in the middle of nowhere, my M6, for foraging.

If I were in an area, that was free and clear, of conflict I would have one of my 22 rifles and one of my Colt 45's, (Jim Hoag gunsmithed) or my Springfield TRP OPERATOR, 45 ACP pistol, with me at all times.

If my area was subject to attacks, from groups of maraudering criminials, or what ever, I would have one of my 20 inch barreled AR-15 HBAR'S, and a 22 LR pistol with me at all times.

I do have a Marlin 39 TDS (16 inch Barrel) that can fit in a pack. I could also use it to supplement the AR, or as a primary 22 LR.

If a typical NUTTY ACTION HERO came into my area, he would be dealt with, with extreme prejudice, upon arrival.

An inch FN FAL if I have my choice. It can be broken down into a knapsack, it has a .22 insert available, easy to mount a suppressor on, lightweight rifle unless your a girly man and require a gym, ammunition is cheap and readily available, as are reloading components. Its not a cheap POS, craftsmanship was used to build the rifle. Its proven reliable in both semi arctic and semi arrid conditions, which can't be said of the AR. It can reliably hit a 18"x22" target at 500 yds under windy conditions above 25 mph. As a matter of fact it can knock down steel at 500 yds. Just my $0.02 worth

Definition of Can

steven - i know im young and stupid but whats a "can" im pretty sure its a silencer

Yes a can is a silencer. However, I am wondering how 41mag is going to put one on a shoty. I know its probly just for slugs and just like any other barrel attachment, but how would one put a suppressor on a shotgun and have any hope of effectiveness? I thought about this one night and if anyone knows, please tell me, I'm most curious.

If there's no worry of fighting off hordes of **** sapiens any of my No4 Enfields.

If two-legged critters are a problem, then a FAL/L1A1

Okay but the question was 1 gun for a crisis and we don't know exactly what the crisis is going to be. It would be messy to shoot squirrels with a 308 and "interesting" to fight off gangbangers with AKs. Thats the reason I hedged my bet with the AR15 and the conversion unit.

Your hedged bet would work well. Just make sure the 22 conversion unit works well.

And don't let NUTTY JOHN help you with it -- like you would, anyway. LOL!

Magnum, I like the thought of the FAL but do you have a 22 conversion unit for it? CDNN has 22 units for the H&K91 but they are $300+. Ouch for right now.

My conversion has over 1000 rds through it and hasn't jammed with only 2 cleanings (I was testing it). As for NJ, the plague is more welcome. At least I wouldn't be bored to death. Pun intended. :D

AK is dandy but you're gonna be squeezed down to one gun. Which is it? AK or Glock?

Just having fun. :D

Well,I confess to adding the can in ode to the resident canmeister.

Just a lil bit of pot stirring.:)

As Garand posted,they have been tried,Just not effective.
