    What gun would you take?

    Lets say the world ended, you were stranded on an island, another planet or whatever... and you were all by yourself. What ONE gun would you take with you? Any gun you want, regardless of legality. And why would you take it? And why?

    For me it would be an AK-47

    M4, though the AK isn't a bad choice.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    M4 is a good choice. The AK I think is far more reliable and tough

    If I'm all by myself, I probably don't need a gun.

    Hey, shooting is a great way to pass the time!

    Large Predators, lots of small game depends on situation
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Actually I think I might strongly consider a good shotgun. That is if I can have a combination of shells.....some slugs, buckshot, and BIRDSHOT. Those island birds passing over, might start to look pretty tasty.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
