    Would not mind having the money spent on those weapons , my stock pile would be different though. I would have one type of long gun, one type of carbine, one type of handgun and 2 types of shotguns.

    Ammo and parts are the key, you want as few different types of ammo as possible. That way you are not wasting time stockpiling different calibers.

    I would go with 2 types of Shot gun, 12 Gauge and 16, the 12 for defense and the 16 for hunting.

    Currently my favorite weapons are a 30.06 M1 Garand, 30 carbine M1 Carbine, a 9mm Taurus. If I had the place and the money I would have a minimum of 10 of each and 3000 rounds a piece.

    You have extra weapons so that if needed you can arm those who come to you for help.

    I live in a city so would not have those numbers here. If I were to stockpile I would move to a remote or less populated area. Wyoming is a draw if I could find some place with water and access to internet. I would build a specila compound with several houses connected via underground tunnel. The walls would be made to resist small arms fire and I would have window shields to pull or draw across.

    I would also have at least 2 years worth of food stocks and water and enough for 10 people.

    I would include gas masks and as much first aid material as I could get. I would have manuals on engines, power plants, gun smithing, medicine farming, ranching and other areas of interest.

    I would have cattle and horses with chickens as well.

    Alas I haven't the money for all that so my 2 rifles and pistol will have to do. I have over 1000 rounds for the carbine and about 500 to 600 for the rifle. The pistol is a waste right now, maybe 50 rounds.

    By the way retired you can get internet in most places in Wyoming, it is called dial up. :D

    Every day, what I find most fascinating about this forum is what passes for 'current event's', or 'politics' here.

    If you have one good pistol, one good shotgun, and one good rifle seems to reason that would be enough. Unfortunately, I don't follow my own logic and I have many types of each. Not as many as the guy in the picture though.

    Um.... you said you would move to Wyoming if you could find some place with the internet. Wyoming doesn't have a lot of people but they do have telephone polls and lines, which means they get dial up. My brother lives out in the middle of no where and he has water, internet, and even satelite tv. If he drives up on certain ridges he even has cell phone service.

    Personally, the lame zone would get my vote but photography would be more apt than here. I guess it must be REALLY hard to decide where to post stuff for some people.
