Hey guys, also check out the m6 scout. Originally made by Springfield armory. It is a single shot .22/.410 over & under. Breaks down in half and comes in a quiver sized vase with shoulder strap.

My weapons & why I chose them:

1. GP1974 (aka AK47). Easily the most durable weapon on the planet; will fire when full of mud and still take a mountain lions head off at 100yds. Mako recoil reducing 6 position stock, tritium sites, single point sling. Cons: not real accurate past 300yds (I can't see that far anyways), very loud to shoot, considerable recoil. 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 75, 100 rd magazines available. I keep 1400 rds on hand.

2. Ruger 10/22, .22 LR semi auto rifle. Great shooting little rifle. Hogue overmolded stock, .910 bbl, 25 rd ruger magazines, 4x32 scope. Very accurate. No recoil; very quiet. I can shoot the eye out of a bat at 75 yards. Cons: small caliber, must be able to hit to be effective. I keep 2000 rds on hand as the ammo is very inexpensive.

3. Charles Daly .12 ga pump with 18.5" barrel. 5+1. CQB sling. At $160.00 this is one of the best firearms I have ever owned! Very minimal moving parts. Great for hunting & self defense inside of 50 yards. Cons: not for long range shooting. I keep 200 rds mixed ammo, buck, fowl, & birdshot.

4. Glock 22 .40 pistol. Used by law enforcement everywhere. Ammo easy to aquire. Very accurate shooting little pistol. I can hit a good center mass body shot at 100 yds with this gun. 17 rd magazines, tritium sites. Cons: none that I can think of. I keep 1000 rss of mixed HP and FMJ.

5. Ruger P85 9mm pistol. This is my old backup. Bought this pistol in 1987 and have carried it my whole adult life. Very accurate & heavy duty. A real survival pistol. 20 rd magazines. Niteglow sites. Cons: 9mm is a hot round & tends to shoot through vs mushroom. I keep 1000 rds HP & FMJ for this weapon.

Note: they make 33 rd magazines for the last 2 in case you can't shoot well! :) in which case I'd say look to #3. less expensive ammo.

Yes, spreadloaded over 2 adults & 3 kids. Versatile. The only downfall is that they all take different ammo types! Guess you can't have everything.

By the way, all of these fire arms are inexpensive. The glock cost the most denero, but I traded a guitar for it!

Can you trade things for guns on Craigslist or Ebay?  Is that legal?  I have alot of sh*t I won't be needing like a six foot tall cigar humidor, for example...

Montana Craig's List specifically bans sales of firearms.  Would a trade be different? Or maybe the admin spends more time looking the other way?  The only firearm listed this week was a "wanted" ad for a Glock.

I traded for 3 of my fire arms this way.

Perhaps it varies by state, so be sure to check the laws for your state prior to doing this.

Go for the 9mm. The .32 is not even as effective as a .22 LR and the ammo is going to be hard to find.

Thanks Erv.. Easier to find ammo is key... I must admit even though it's not a lethal weapon, the cost of 22 ammo has made me really excited about my new purchase. I bought 1000 rounds for $35.00. If anything maybe the looks of the Mossberg Tactical will make people think twice!

Erv, What should I be looking for in Ammo for my 22lr. I've noticed some boxes say Rim/Center Fire. Also someone people say some ammo is fires cleaner. Since it's so cheap, should I go with a more expensive box and maybe get half the amount for a better ammo?

Meant to add, the guy at the sports store talked me into getting what they had on sale which was Winchester Gold bulk box, $16.99 for 525 rimfire.
