I would go to your local ATF office and ask for advice such as this.

Literally the most insane thing I have ever read in my entire life, and most likely will ever read. I cannot get over how insane some people truly are. Especially when they write something that is as likely to happen as man eating dandelions taking over the planet. Seriously, lay off the crack because your paranoia is taking you over.

Great idea. Or you could go to a local DHS fusion office. They would probably be more helpful.

7.62 x 51 and 308 are almost the same
308 will work in both
7.62 x 51 will not work 100% in a 308
it jams in my 308 rem 700

I'm leaning towards a Ruger mini-14 tactical, or a 10/22 rifle and a .22 pistol. Not confident about the stopping power of the .22, but my accuracy is pinpoint. What do my fellow gun enthusiasts recommend?

You could get a nice .45-70 rifle and a couple boxes of ammo for that price. Will take down anything (and anyone) in North America.

My wife didn't like the look of the MP5, so we ended up with the Ruger 10/22. A .22lr pistol, and a shotty are next

Excellent choice. Hopefully you got the take-down version.


I would suggest adding many Ruger BX-25 (25 round) magazines. They cost more, but are the best and cdnninvestments always has an excellent price. Butler Creek "steel lips" come in second place.

KelTec is the way to go for a high capacity and reliable .22 pistol. Check out the PLR-22

However, if you wish to keep the handgun a .22 for practice (and don't care about keeping the ammunition the same) and also use it in a pinch for self defense and holster work, I would recommend the KelTec PMR-30 with no hesitation.

It is a .22 magnum (.22WMR) pistol with a 30 round in the grip capacity. A hot .22 magnum produces the same ft/lb as a .380 auto.

No Takedown, I have an archangel nomad stock for it, and she did not like the takedown at all. I have 3 bx-25 mags, and all of them fail to feed any kind of standard ammo. Stingers are the only thing that reliably feed. Which isn't a bad thing and in the event that I would need a 25 round clip, I would want it loaded with Stingers anyways. I'm gonna be buying several Ruger 10 rd mags as they always, always work!
From what I've read, the PMR-30 is on backorder essentially until Obama is out of office. We're probably gonna get a walther p22 Q model or a 1911 .22lr.
Eat, drink, and be merry,

$700?

I would have to suggest a rifle, an SKS.
You CAN also buy a WASR, however, I'd rather have a good SKS than an OK AK.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17892097


SKS magazines suck though. Still not as durable has the AK.

AK cost a little more though.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18012943


SKS Model "D".Takes AK mags. best of both worlds.Get a used one from a gun show. Good luckcool2

Double barrel shotgun (12 gauge - pawn-shop special), 00 buckshot, a Moisin Nagant M44 with at least 200 - 300 rnds of ammo and a CZ52 with at least four boxes of ammo.Don't forget stripper clips for the Nagant and a spare mag for the CZ and maybe some camo. Spend the rest on Thanksgiving and Christmas if you celebrate them.

Doesn't matter what gun you get, if it's the end of the freakin' world you only need to fire it once, eat lead.

''end of the world'' I'd go with an AR because u can carry a lot more ammo. Nothing is worse than running out of ammo.....

I know you already made the purchase, but IMO the best thing to do with $700 for guns would be to get an SKS and a pistol, a glock 26 type.

Then you have handgun you can carry around with you as a primary defense, easy to conceal if your state allows it, and plenty of rounds when carrying an extra mag with you. 95% of self defense situations happen within 20 feet.

The SKS is excellent as a cheap firearm that is accurate and shoots a common/good round. You can buy both for right at that price point if you look for deals.

By far best bang for the buck is AK47. Reasonable accuracy to 300 yards. Very good round,powerful and you can carry alot of it. The rifle is light and the price of the rifle and ammo is still very reasonable.

Marlin 30-30. Just as fast as a semi if you know what you're doing, plus it's a "deer rifle" so it'll be one of the last to be banned, even here in Canada and other restrictive jurisdictions.
