If you could choose one gun to protect yourself what would it be?
I'm planning on getting a gun in the next couple of weeks, but the choices are unbelievable. There are so many. This is like work.

So, this is for the people who really know their guns.

If you had to pick one , to defend yourself and your property (no hunting), money is no object, what would u buy? And nothing that is considered illegal by the government, as the laws stand today, so no machine guns or fully automatics

Make and model.

Anybody?

Your gonna get alot of different opinions, but if your talkin, an unexpected break-in type scenario you want something quick and easy to grab and use, like a handgun.

At least a .40 cal glock.

Might also consider a 12 gauge ,maybe not as sexy ,but very effective in close encounters but of course not as nimble.

If you have kids, you need to have things secured and safe, obviously.

12 gauge shotgun is best bet for home defense. Mossberg 500 is reliable and not expensive. Make sure you get one with a stock and not just a pistol grip.

There is no one answer to your Question. If you live near your neighbors and Over penatration is possible Go with a shotgun. I can't tell you what you would like, you have to go to a gun store and check out a few of them.

If you plan to carry. Get some training. At least take the NRA basic pistol course. As for a carry gun, you should go to a range that rents guns. Try several. What you want and what will be good for you may not be the same thing.

Please describe the environment you live in, do you live out in the open? Do you live in a urban area? Tell us some more please.

How can people advise someone to get a certain gun when they barely know anything about his situation? Geez...

Re: If you could choose one gun to protect yourself what would it be?
I'd suggest a 12 gauge shotgun as well. Buy a variety of ammo for it.

a 12 gauge is the most versatile gun a homeowner can possess by offering so many ammunition choices.

buy buckshot or birdshot for home defense. Slugs for when TSHF. Get the combo slug/buckshot rounds. Make your own wax slugs. Buy some aguila mini shells. Get some dragon breath to scare the crap out of the intruder.

12 gauges are cheap to buy. They are easy to clean. They are awesome looking. And for fun you can take them skeet shooting.

Your question is too vague, So I will have multiple answers

For defense inside a home in the city. I would say a
Shotgun!
Benelli M4 unless you expect zombie wave attacks then maybe A siaga 12 ga. with lots of spare mags.

For a car gun-go to work gun I would Go with a
Pistol:
Sig 226 elite in .40 cal
.357 Sig is better but hard to get right now. Buy a .357 Sig upper to swap out with the .40cal

For rural defense I say
Rifle:
Screw the M16 and all it's variants! It requires too much care and cleaning.
I am of the opinion that an SKS is the best Semi-Auto defense rifle on the market today. Some will argue, But I trust the SKS.



There are thousands of arguments for different designs and calibers, however I feel VERY confident in these recommendations.
Personally I believe in a large frame revolver with a semi-auto for backup.

I would not say "gun" to protect myself and my family, but weapon. The best weapon is knowledge, cleverness and wisdom.

Re: If you could choose one gun to protect yourself what would it be?
1 gun

And you said it's main purpose is defending your property and home.

AK47

Since you said only 1 gun, pistol is out because of long range
shotgun is out because of long range - unless you are switching barrels - but then I guess you could shoot slugs, but still you are limited on distance. 12 gauge is my 2nd choice.

Yep, AK47, you are good out to about 200 yards, wont jam, 30 rd standard capacity magazines, but you can get 100 round drums. You can get a folding stock and turn it into something easier to use inside your home. Anyone can learn to shoot, disassemble and clean in about an hour.

Go with a trijicon scope to switch between using it for close or distant engagements.

My first choice is a streetsweeper, but since its highly illegal, I got the next best thing. Rossi Circuit Judge. This is a revolver rifle that shoots 45 longs, or 410 shotgun shells. Bring on the zombies, I am ready for them.

A nice revolver will last you a lifetime, never need
parts and is easy to clean.

As long a components are available it's easy to roll
your own ammo for a revolver also.

A shorter barrel pump action shotgun with a variety of ammo....slugs...buckshot etc. For survival go with a .22 with lots of ammo for the long haul and portability etc. Defense and survival....two different scenerios.
