    The reality of what is happening now is a result of liberals taking over education. Years of planning and work has given them a platform to push the agenda. We are just now seeing the beginning of what is coming. The promise of free stuff and we will make someone else pay for it is to good to pass up.
    They will take the firearms bit by bit, one law one state at a time. Without a major wake up in this country many of us will live to see it. Agendas often move slow for a long time , then they reach a point enough have joined in and then it comes fast. We are in high gear now.

    I need to finish the goal of having at least one of every Ruger RPR.

    OK, just to start off here,this guy really has no clue, relatively young and lacks in depth knowledge.

    Most apparent error that shows his shortcomings is, his reference to the M1A.

    Before I pick him apart, I want to make a statement here on the M1A.

    A commercial M1A, with a reasonably accurately made receiver and all USGI parts is one of the finest battlefield rifles in the world.

    Now to picking him apart,

    HE states it has been around for 78 years, wrong!

    The M1 Garand has been around that long, and is still a viable battle rifle under certain conditions(get off my lawn!).

    We are talking two different animals here, father and son in the process of evolution.

    Both rifles will take the 6.5 with a new barrel installed.

    Then he wants it in 6.5 Creedmoore, yeah that will work, but at $1.50 a round???

    The 7.62X51 NATO round will work just fine and there is a lot of surplus around for $.50 or less.

    The cost adds up quickly if you are buying 1 or 2 or even 3 thousand rounds.

    Who cares if it shoots a 1/4 MOA larger group???

    Are we going to do battle at 600 yards, hardly a self defense range under most conditions.

    A Winne lever gun in .357 Mag. for what, so you can have a hand gun in the same round?

    I have and prefer a Marlin 1894 in .357, a better gun IMHO, after working on both for 50+ years.

    Yeah I have handguns in .357Mag. also and 10K of ammo to go with them, they are third tier level survival guns.

    I would take a second or third M1A in place of it.

    Shotguns, he prefers a 930 Mushberg, better choice with a 500 series,

    better still an Rem. 1100, 1187 or an 870, he had them and chose a lower quality, shows his lack of in depth experience.

    Better to stick with an AR that is simple and well made, no need for all the junk hung on them, and in 5.56 NATO only.

    His choice of handguns is also questionable.

    First there is caliber, a must for survival, the most common around, which are 9MM Para., 45ACP, 38 special and .357 Mag.

    All are proven man stoppers and have been around for 100+ to 65+ years as a testament to that,

    and can be found in any store that carries ammo in one flavor or another.

    My choices are a 1911 of which have six, and a Sig 226-8 in 9MM or any Smith&Wesson 6 series auto in either 45 or 9.

    Revolvers, the same any of the 6 series there also, they are without doubt the best made revolvers in the world.

    That even includes the current cheapening of them, the best were made from the 50's through the late 80's.

    My 10 gun list;

    M-60 machine gun

    Two M-14 rifles

    Two M-4 FA carbines

    Barrett 50 cal.

    Two 1911's in 45 ACP.

    Browning HB-M2

    Carl Gustav M3

    This assumes that there is sufficient ammunition and spares for all of the above.

    10? Heck I've got almost twice that in shotguns alone.

    @Slippy on your list I see a serious shortcoming.
    You have no Mauser, the best bolt action ever designed. Designed by Peter Paul von Mauser, it has been copied by almost every major rifle manufacturer.
    In fact, the famous US Springfield Model 1903 was determined to be a patent infringement on Mauser's design and the US was fined a significant amount. Our entry into World War One negated that.

    The ultimate culmination of the Mauser rifle was the K98k, the WWII service rifle for Germany.
    Firing an 8X57 MM cartridge (actually 7.92X57), when loaded with a 196 grain bullet will put down almost everything that walks.

    Every serious rifleman should have a 30-30 lever action, an 8MM Mauser, and a Springfield 1903 or 1903A3.

    I do like the M60 cussed it a few times do to weight but it served me well.

    Year ago I moved most of the firearms to another world. They will not find them . Those will need to find them when when the times comes. Knew this was coming I was just off by 1/2 a generation.

    RPD, I have everyone you listed here, my list was confined to the 10 guns I would want/have.
