    My take on this article...

    1911 in .45acp
    Revolver in .357mag
    AR in 5.56x45mm
    Pump shotgun in 12 gauge
    AK47 in 7.62x39mm

    Anyone else have an opinion...?!

    The only thing I would change, IMO would be the handgun to a .45ACP

    I to would change the pistol cal to 45acp. My only other comment would be, If you had a 10-22, or other 22 rifle, why would you need a 22 conversion kit for the AR. I guess I don't see the logic in that one.

    Did I see this guy rack the charging handle on the M16 without checking to see if the mag was empty ?:confused:
    About the 1:55 mark.

    .40 S&W for the 1911, and I would personally choose a Springfield Socom 2 in a .338 Lapua Mag.

    There should be top 3 to have. A pistol for self defense, shot gun (12G) to protect your home, and a rifle/carbine of your choice to protect your property. Then build from there. Just my opinion.

    I like to have a dedicated carry and one for home defense (more rounds), 12 gauge pump, a carbine and a good field rifle for longer distances. But if only three I would have a pistol, 12 gauge pump and a carbine.

    SA XDs .45 as a carry, SA XDm 9mm Comp for HD, Remington 870 Tactical 12 GA. for HD. Working on a Remington 700 in .308. Still need / want a nice AR too.
