Rifle or Shotgun

Post by caretaker »

If you were restricted by finances or some other reason to just one fire arm what would it be?

Rifle

Shotgun

Pistol

I would say it would be a rifle.

Probably an ar15/ar10.

I`m a leanin toward a shotgun. A rifle aint much good fer small game such as squirrels,rabbits,dove,ducks and turkey. A shot gun would be more versatile.Could be used with shot to hunt the above mentioned critters and loaded with punkin ball for bigger game such as deer. Also could be used for home defense. Just wondering what y`all think.

Remember this is if you could just have only one firearm.

Jes one, n onlee one, would be a shotgun. As versatile as can be from small game, to big, intruders, and ne body what might want to do ye harm. ;)

My choice would be a suppressed .22 rimfire rifle. Pack lots of ammo and you can kill some pretty big critters, if ya know where to hit'em.

fine choice! I've probably killed more critters with a .22 than anything else

I'm gonna be the odd man out here. Yes. Shot gun is versatile. A .22 would be a good choice also. But if I could only have 1 gun it would be the 5" barrel Taurus Judge. Yep 410 shot gun rounds or 45 long colt. Anything from small to deer size game. Self defense rounds that will stop bout anyone in they tracks. And... it's small enough to carry with very little printing so it can go anywhere anytime you ready.
