G26 + 1911+ 870 Do I NEED anything else?
My current defensive setup is a Glock 26 for carry, a Colt series 80 1911 on the night stand and a Remington 870 close by. Recently I was thinking about what my next purchase as I have a "Extra Pay Check" coming up. The thing is this... When I buy a gun I don't really "Need" I always end up selling it a few months later as gun's I don't need tend to not get much of a work out at the range so I don't see the use so I sell them.
My current threesome seems to cover a lot of the bases that I need covered. I divide possible scenarios into 5 categories. A defensive shooting outside of the home (Covered by my EDC the Glock 26). A defensive shooting inside of the home (Covered by my nightstand the colt 1911 or Remington 870). Defending my home or self after a natural disaster (Covered by the 1911 and 870). Zombie Outbreak (Yes, this is a joke...Kind of... Covered by the 1911 and the 870) and last and most un-likely is a invasion of the United states by a foreign power.
The last is really the only thing I feel I'll equipped to handle because of my lack of a semi auto rifle. Luckily it is also the most un-likely to happen. I have been considering a kel tec sub 2000 in 9mm to fill the role of "Urban rifle" as I already carry a 9mm glock and if I decide to change out my night stand gun to a Glock 17 (which I have given some thought to) all my mags would be interchangeable from my CC to my nightstand gun to my pistol cal. carbine. I guess what I am trying to figure out is if a semi auto rifle in a true rifle cartridge (5.56) is really "needed". While it may be fun anything that sits in my safe without getting fired on a regular basis generally goes bye bye. I know that a Kel-Tec sub 2000 in 9mm if going to max out around 100 yards but I also know that even in a urban warfare scenario I doubt I would be engaging anything outside of that. In addition a Ar-15 doesn't have the benefit of sharing both mags AND ammo with my EDC and possible next night stand gun.
So long story short... What do ya think?
