    Did a search and didn't find anything.

    What is a list of weapons that you all feel should be staple items to everyones collection?

    Here's what I'm thinking:

    1. 1911
    2. AR15
    3. Shotgun of some sort
    4. Glock...:noes:
    5. AK (never personally shot one)

    This is my breif list. I'm working towards this, and more.

    Thoughts?

    I am missing 2 from my top list of must haves

    1. 9mm semi auto
    2. AK-47
    3. 357 Revolver
    4. 22 Rifle
    5. 12 ga

    I am missing the 22 rifle and 12 ga.

    However I own a 9mm revolver and thinking of selling it to get me the 22 rifle and some cash to spend at the range.

    AK-47 (-74 is good, but a -47 is a must)
    Milsurp bolt action (Mosin, Mauser, Enfield, K-31, etc)
    1911
    .22LR rifle
    Shotgun
    Some kind of medium-long range precision gun (this could be the milsurp, but maybe not), like an AR, Rem 700, Tikka, etc.

    edit: instead of a milsurp bolt action, any milsurp/milsurp style rifle is fine (garands, G-43, SVT-40, M-14, FAL, PTR-91, etc)

    I think everyone needs at least a machine gun. Whether it be a Mac or an M240.

    Why is the .22 called a food weapon?

    because you can use it to get enough food to feed yourself; rabbits, squirrels, etc can all be taken with a .22.
