will tell you, after shtf,when it's ok to only have a scoped bolt action, smg, AK, .22lr, shotgun, etc, hmm? Me, I will be carrying the ONE longarm with maximum versatility and utility. That is a suppressed, short barreled CAR-15, with .22lr conversion unit. No trips back home to get the "ideal" longarm for a given job, just up and USE what you got, making up for its deficiencies with your ABILITIES. If I didn't have any more abilty than you guys have, I'd WORK on improving, instead of bsing about the "special" guns I owned)which you wont HAVE when needed, and which have HORRIBLE shortcomings for most other sorts of longarm jobs. The .22 lacks power, the shotgun lacks range, penetration, mag capacity, lw,compact ammo. The AK lacks range, lw, replacable ammo, efficicient foraging. The bolt action lacks foraging, and rapidfire, the smg lacks pretty much everything.
