Tactical: Ak-47 w/16 30 rnd mags, .45 Glock 30, .357 Dan Wesson, 12 Ga. Mossberg Model 500 ("tricked out")
Hunting/Long Range: 30.06 Remington Model 700, 30.30 Winchester Model 94, 12 Ga. Remington Slug Master
Fun: .25 Raven, 10/22 Ruger w/8 30 rnd mags, .22 Marlin/Glenfield 18 shot, 20 Ga. Mossberg.
Ammo: 12,000 rnds combined.

ALL members of my household (including my teenage children, who have been shooting for years) have been trained on how to shoot, clear and safe all the above weapons.

I spent just under ten years working as a "ghetto" medic (mostly weekends and midnights-you get to meet the really interesting people then), and I learned that life is cheap, and even in a relatively stable economy people are willing to rape rob and assault Fire Department EMS Crews.
I have about 70% of my supplies in place now (are you ever really done?) and continue to prepare. I have no intention of taking prisoners or being the community food bank. Yeah, it's a cold position but after almost 30 years of active EMS service it teachs you your priorities. I'm an EMS Coordinator and Paramedic Instructor for my Department and the first two things that I teach our "Probies" are: 1. God don't like stupid, and 2. This is their emergency, not yours (they created it, and NO ONE expects you to die for their mistakes).   
Credibility is like virginity, once it is gone- it is gone forever.

I have hunting rifles, varmint rifles, shotguns and handguns.  I come from a long line of shooters and used to compete.  My whole family did, my brother, parents, aunts, uncles.  It was a family event.

Like Dispenser, more than I care to list. A while ago I decided to consolidate calibers. It made inventorying easier.
Rifle, 308 & 7.62x39 & 22

Pistol, 22 & 357 mag & 9mm. All the 9's take the same magazine.

Shotgun, 410 & 12 gage.

I have rifles to match each pistol caliber.

I have a decent collection of 12 gauges, .22 LR pistols and rifles, .308, .38 special revolver, and my pride and joy...Barrett M82-A1 .50 cal. I know I could have bought an arsenal for what it cost me but I REALLY wanted it!

Wolfgang, I wish my wife was as understanding! LOL! I was introduced to the Barrett while in the military. I was already out when the A1 came out, but I knew it was the one for me! I am now saving for the optics for it.

I know what the F15 can do. Been there done that. I believe every word about the F22.

"According to the program all 6 15's bit the dust without even seeing the 22. "

As it should be! In battle, if you don't control the skies, you will control nothing. I just hope we don't export it.

Wish I could have one in my preps

Several hand guns ... Rifles ... a shot gun and a blow gun. And enough ammo and darts to back them up.  And yes I've been trained and know how to use them.   Evil Smile
