1 Rifle to rule them all

Bam! Anarchy ensues in our great nation. You have room for 1 rifle that you presently own, which 1 do you reach for?


I'll narrow it down for everyone, you can take 1 firearm.

    Whichever one I have the most ammo for. If it happened today. My stag model 3 would get the nod.

    +1 with some elaboration...

    Must be gas blowback (semi auto), reasonably accurate and be able to double as a hunting rifle is need be. It must take at least a 10 round magazine, preferrably more and must be reliable.

    Bolt guns are nice and inherently more accurate but for sending ammunition down range in a time of duress, it has to be gas blowback.

    Thats hard...I am a firm believer in the 3 gun rule...rifle, pistol, shotgun. But probably my remington 870 3.5 in mag since it is the most flexible of the bunch and I have a rifled barrel for it.

    Ya there is no doubt that I would be grabbing 1 of my ar-15 rifles. Fire superiority is key to any firefight. I can kill any animal with enough rounds pumped in it.

    I wish I had one, but I do not, so that option is out. Will hopefully be my next purchase though

    I'm with 300Whisper. I'd grab my 7 RM, 870, and my Beretta .40 S&W, and just as much ammo as I can carry. It still counts, because there is only 1 rifle there
