Remington 870 shotgun in 12 ga and a Ruger 10-22 rifle. Both are the Swiss army knives of the firearms world.
 Quoting: TheBiss


I second this.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1378669


Remington 870 is overrated... You can do just as well with a Mossberg 500

I am trying to decide between a Glock 19 or a Benelli Supernova shotgun. I can only afford to buy one of them right now. Which would be the better purchase for just protection against whatever?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1102398


If it were me I would get a mossberg model 500 or 590. They are the only shotguns that passed mil-spec. Very reliable. Do some research and u will see that they are the shotgun to own. I own a 590 and it is a awesome weapon!

 Quoting: Oscanator 24421278

Also own a glock 19. Also a very good choice but for the first I would go with shotgun, more options. Close quarters you can use bird shot or buckshot. For longer range a slug works very well. With practice you will have no problem hitting center mass at 100 yards.

Under normal circumstances I would go shotgun first then close range second...but consider the insanity of the world...do the reverse of that.

Re: What Should My First Gun Purchase Be?
My 2cents:

Living in an urban environment with no intention to bug out? I suggest a handgun, GLOCK 19 ($540), or a Ruger P95 ($299). Both are reliable and have been used by LEO's. You can conceal them so have the comfort of being able to defend yourself but not advertise the fact. You want to blend in, not stick out.

Living in a more rural area? Get yourself a used lever-action 30-30 with a scope. You can kill anything on two or four legs in north america with this firearm, it is the 'quintessential' firearm of the American people still going strong, easy and cheap to shoot. Put some optics on it and use Hornady Polymer tipped bullets and you can reach out to 300 yards without breaking a sweat.

I'd avoid using a shotgun as a primary/only weapon, you can get a 30/30 for about the same price and your options will be greatly improved with a 30/30. Shotgun is great for close quarters like defense indoors / clearing rooms / and of course the sound of a shotgun being 'racked' is extremely intimidating to would be raiders. Shotguns are cheap to shoot but remember you have a very limited range of about 100yds with them (using slugs) and significantly less with buckshot. You don't have to be as good of a shot with a gauge, but it also has less penetration power against armor than a 30/30 at medium range.

So yea... my advice, get the 30/30 if rural, glock 19 or ruger 95 if urban.

Well as long as the laws of society are still in effect, you will have a harder time defending your case of 'self-defense' when you chop someone with an axe.

Its easier to claim self-defense with a firearm. If you get attacked and stab a person, you can very easily be the one who goes to jail.

I have extensive hand to hand combat training, from the military and years of karate, if i were to get into a fight with someone, even if they were attacking me first and I seriously injured or killed them, I would probably go to jail, especially if i used a knife or similar implement. As soon as someone like me engages with an assailant the legal cards are not in my favor. If you have that kind of training you shouldn't be 'fighting' at all. Its much simpler to shoot the person right off the bat, because your life was threatened, then to try and disarm them otherwise.

Its also much harder to disarm and subdue a person via martial arts without hurting them. Personally my feeling is that if someone punches you, and you block in such a way as to break their arm, they will never punch you with that arm again. Of course if you do this you will probably go to jail.

Shotgun. Don't have to be a great shot to protect yourself, and just the sound of the shotgun being racked can be enough to make the bad guy flee.

Keltec sub- 2000 would be a good start, preferably in the .40 call.

Later get the glock 23, as issues the same ammo and magazines.

Re: What Should My First Gun Purchase Be?
Smith & Wesson 44 magnum Stainless Steel
wheel gun with the 8" barrel.

It was my first gun.

If you are a man, that is.
If you are a woman or a wimp, anything will do.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1549311


Yes.

Although mine is a ruger redhawk .44mag in stainless, pretty much ends the pistol caliber discussion. Accurate, reliable, and most importantly gobbs of killing/stopping power.

I'm sure allot of you read that story about the guy in texas who saved that cop with his .357 from 120+ yards away, I believe he hit the guy five times in total.

My basic SHTF load-out, is as follows...

Ruger mini-14, 10/22, redhawk .44 mag all stainless steel, and
an interarms ppk/s also stainless. These guns have basically never failed me, and yeah I love Ruger weapons. I really like the combination of the .44 mag and the ppk/s, you can open carry the revolver, and conceal the smaller pistol. If I have time and space I will take more but this is about what I can carry personally. The mini-14 and the 10/22 are on folding stocks, and are actually quite comfortable.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23524705


Nice choices especially the 44, that is one powerful gun. I personally would go with my 45ACP 1911. I love that thing.

Sega 12 gauge, extended mag., alternate rounds between mag slugs and 00. A slug hitting a kevlar vest above the heart will turn the heart into jello.

For the novice shooter who needs protection without a lot of training. Get the Stoeger Coach Gun in 12 gauge. Its a simple short side-by-side shotgun in which a child could understand how to use. It also breaks down and will it into a normal size backpack very easily. One version also has an integral rail under the barrels to allow the attachment of a flashlight or laser.

Honestly, there is nothing more intimidating than seeing this thing pointed at you. It kicks like a mule, so get a slip on shoulder pad and a shotgun sling to carry it.

Why thin over a pump? Well in my experience it is flexibility. You can carry various typed of shells, and can switch them out instantly where needed.

beanbags
bird shot of various sizes
buckshot of various sizes
slugs
flares

There are also a variety of different power loads. Sometimes you just don't need the power of that 3.5 inch shell. Sometimes you do.

It will be a long time before this weapon is on any confiscation list.
