Alright /k/ whats the best SHTF handgun that isnt a 1911 and rifle that isnt an sks? Also, if any of you have the meme like pic related except instead of ant man its the one that says "cops are evil racists/only cops should have guns" one that would be great and ill love you forever.
Handgun: Polymer isn't durable enough, and the steel frame handgun with the best parts/ammo availability in the USA is the 1911. If you live in Russia or Eastern Europe, a Mak or Tok might be a better bet.
So SHTF handgun = 1911
Rifle is a tough one, I would say ammo availability,durability, portability and accuracy are the critical issues.
>ammo availability because you'll probably be using it a lot
>accuracy for hunting, sharpshooting
>portability so easy to carry when hunting or exploring
>durability because it's not going to be kept in a safe with desiccants and cleaned after every shooting session
I would say either drop a bucket of cash on building an AR with top notch parts, or get a stainless Mini-14. Both use widely available .223, and have good irons (provided you get good ones for AR)
handgun: any decent wonder 9. 92fs, g17/19, hk p30, usp, sig p226. Though some people will say a large frame revolver because fewer moving parts and such. your choice
rifle: .308 semi auto high cap rifle, like a SCAR, FAL, G3. AR-15 is OK, but I'd really have a full powered piece if possible.
OP obviously is new to guns. 10/22 is correct answer. If SHTF he's not gonna be innawoods shooting federales. He's gonna be starving in an urban area and need to kill stray cats to survive. G19 for self defense, 10/22 for utility.
Fuck that just get a 9mm carbine rifle because at least you will be able to reload the empty casings I like to see you try and reload a fucking 22lr faggot oh and also 9mm is more common than 22lr now in this time and age
OP asks for pistol besides 1911 jappy zappy
>faggot posts 1911
As much as I dislike it, a Governor revolver would probably be a good choice. It can use 45acp, .410 shotgun shells or .45 long colt. Being able to use 3 kinds of ammo increases your odds of having ammo you can use or being able to trade you sweet virgin ass for.
