The excrement has hit the fan, it's the end of the world as we know it. All of your weapons have been stolen / confiscated (same thing, really) except for the 2 you had buried in the back yard (or stashed somewhere / anywhere else). You have one handgun & one long gun (shotgun or rifle). What I want to know is this:
What are your two guns?
My guess is that the handgun of choice will be some model of Glock in 9mm, but which model? It should be concealable, but we're talking about pure survival here, so sub-compact may not be the best choice?
I'd also guess the long gun would be an assault rifle of some kind, either an AK or AR-variant. Which one? Assuming you are in the US, will it be easier to find 5.56 or 7.62x39 ammo? Anything else to consider? Anyone pick a 12ga with some slugs in this scenario?
I assume most would make this decision based on perceived reliability &/or availability of parts & ammo, as well as effectiveness. Let me know what your opinions are, and preferably why you would make those choices.
I'm seriously considering doing exactly this, though not (yet!) actually burying them anywhere. In light of this, both guns should be at least relatively inexpensive, and I don't care at all about what they look like. I want to get these two for survival purposes - once I've done that, then I can get all the 'pretty' guns I want simply because I want them.
Thanks for what I hope will be lots of input & advice!
