    what you may not realize is that with a little practice, you could cycle a pump almost as fast as a semi-auto.... I have always shot my 870 fast.. and thus I went with a rem 7600 30-06 for my deer rifle.. you would be surprised how fast you can work the action when you practice! get a pump with a big clip...

    My first reaction was to pick the Mini 14 and I have one, fine rifle! I picked SKS as overall
    I like the idea of launching 7.62 toward whatever I deem an enemy target. Another reason
    is I have 3 SKS's and never had any issues thru the years! I keep them clean and run them
    on occasion with no issues ever! Set the poll aside my M1A is my go to rifle on the homefront!

    both the M1 Carbine and the Mini 14's big brother - the Mini 30 - have both been on the longer liberal "hit lists" - wouldn't guarantee that buying a M1 Carbine will give you a legal weapon forever in states like CT, MA and CA .... it's going to take a country shattering - life altering event for the liberals - to shut down their anti-gun rampage and roll back existing laws ....
    I had an Mini-30 once...

    ONCE...

    They are of poor quality from my viewpoint, some were sent back to the factory, but to each his own.

    That is why I picked the M1 carbine, It works, and I have six of them.

    The M1 Garand mentioned would have been first in my book, carried it and the M14 in the service.

    That dang Watchman watches everything..lol. It seems to be the original premise of the post was to pick out one long gun out of a finite group if he was in a hypothetical world of prepper mental gymnastics. So I chose the shotgun. Yall apparently celebrated 4/20 two days in a row or something.

    If I could only have one and I couldn't have my phased plasma rifle in 40 watt range then I guess I'd go with a good 12 gauge pump. You can't beat the versatility.

    I guess I'm late to the party, but I wanted to add a vote for the Ruger. Mine (a .223) has never once failed to fire since I bought it back in the early '80s.

    Everyone here knew I would vote for the mini 14, it is my truck gun. They don't come cheap, but they can be left to roll around in a truck or drug through dirt an grime, and its gonna fire. Every time.
