What are the best carbines to own for SHTF? And what 3 guns would you choose to have with you?

Ive recently taken to the FN2000 Tactical as my CQB, and either the FNS Scar or Paratus (Cuz it fills 2 roles assault and sniper)
either of these for open combat.

Then of course a 12 gauge.

I've been served well by my daniel defense m4. Also just traded a g19 for an m&p9. I have not tested it enough to say. Have an m1014 for fun and collector appeal.

Out of the many that I own the two that will never leave my side is my Glock-19 9MM 2nd gen. and my Kimber 1911 .45 ACP.

The third one would be a shotgun; my Mossberg 500 Tactical.

Best carbine would be AK 47 with quality side folding stock.
Best handgun would be any Glock, preferably a 17.
Best third gun would be a backup Glock, probably a 26.


Millions of cops, and millions of commies all over the world agree!

my choices:

AK or Israeli Galil semi auto 7.62 x 39

FAL or HK 91 semi auto .308

M1911A1

I dont trust the AR15 design [too finicky & unrelaible]

1. AR or AK
2. 12g shotgun
3. Deer/sniper rifle (you can chamber the same as #1 if you want and carry less ammo [e.g. 7.62x51/.308])
4. Glock 17

Each has a purpose and can't be easily replaced by one of the others. You could probably find a compromise between 1 and 3, but it would be a compromise.

If the cops and commies had a choice in what they carried, it might mean more.

Well, if it's carbines.....

30-30....yes, a 30-30
AK-47 with folder
Pretty much any AR-15
Ruger mini


Overall? Probably th AK....can run a long long time without cleaning and in a pinch, a can of diesel and a scrub brush will do.

Realistically, the M4 will run dirty as well. I clean mine every several thousand rounds, or when I put it away for more than a few days. Otherwise, a bit of lube ever 2-3K rounds works fine unless running suppressed, then I have to add lube a touch more often for best results.
