i think you mean 22 caliber.  if one can afford it one should have a modest battery of firearms suited for different purposes.  your's sounds like it covers many of the  bases.  you should reconsider the term "sawed off"  it usually denotes an illegally short weapon.  a shotgun with a barrel under 18 inches is a federal offense under the national firearms act of 1934.  the law is foolish and has no real meaning except to punish american citizens, but there it is.

To all of those who own guns: Do not post how many and what kind of guns that you own on a public forum. It will tell the bad guys where to come to get guns and it will also tell the police where to come to take your guns.All that is needed for home defense is a pump shotgun,maybe a different size and cal. for each family memeber and also plenty of training by a certified firearms instructor. Do not post all of your guns. It may look good on this forum and it may make you feel good to see it in print,but many others are reading this also. Johnray1

Quite a collection here, between the wife and I, we've got all the bases covered I believe.  shotguns, rifles, revolvers, semi-auto handguns and carbines.  All legaly registered, so the cops already know where to come and get them.  Since this is CA, there are no assault weapons but I don't really think we will be needing them, since we were able to cover all the bases pretty well as things stand.  I wouldn't mind having a SOCOM 16, but if I had to make do without it I wouldn't feel too bad about that.
 
I would be considered the "Bert Gummer" of my neighborhood, but I'm woefully underarmed compared to some folks I know about.  I'm no longer concerned about having sufficient firearms and ammo for myself, seriously if I get to expend 1/4 of my ammo or fire half my guns before I get plugged myself, I would be surprised.  If I needed to, I could arm the neighborhood for a block in either direction, though I would have to be pretty sure of a bigger threat than my neighbors before I would do so!
 
As far as the specifics go, the only ones that would see any serious use in a SHTF scenario would be the Springfield XD9 (9mm), the CZ75b (9mm), the Ruger P345D (45 acp), and a couple of SKS rifles (7.62x39).  Maybe (MAYBE) the .357 magnum revolvers and the Timberwolf .357 magnum pump carbine, as backups. MAYBE the shotguns for home intruders, if need be.
 
Eh, if I never need the guns, I can always consider them a fun hobby and as my "retirement fund".  And it's always better to have 'em and not need 'em than to need 'em and not have 'em.

while the sks is an older less efficient design, i would rather fight a drooling idiot with a ma deuce than a snake eater with a 22 single shot.  So learn your tools and you'll will be good to go.

I agree with this statement...this includes not telling anyone about ANY of your personal business.  "Loose lips sink ships...".  I don't go telling my neighbors and friends what I am prepping or how much I have on hand.  Same with my personal firearms and other defensive items.  This information may come back to haunt you in the future during some national crisis...when you find unwanted attention directed at your home because desperate people know you have supplies.

I have a small farm outside (25 miles) a small city.  Since I'm rural I do not have to worry about firing around my neighbors since they are about 2 1/2 miles away.  So yea I'm prepared.  I have things that would make your mouth water.  I have a class 111 license for a number of items.  Enough said....  Retired military..  enough said

Long story short, if you're gonna visit Rich in FL, you'd better call first LOL

We don't have as much as I'd like to have - we have something for long range, something for short range and several things for very short range.
 
Before we stock up on more firearms, we're going to fortify our house and put in natural looking barriers around our yard - like dense hedges laced with barbwire.
 
Now if I only had a moat...   LOL

Picked up another ak47 wasr.  That makes two ak's in case I need one to use as parts.  If I was smart I would paired up all my firearms instead of buying all sorts of makes, models and calibers.

Haha Tadeo, I picked up one of those Microtec AUG's a few weeks ago just as a new toy for me to screw around with until I get my grubby hands on a Masada.
 
It's highly evil! I'll bet there's little Brady campaigner babies crying in their cribs knowing that I've got that gun. It's unbelievably accurate, and as much as I like it, my only real bitch about it is that they chose to use a proprietary magazine instead of just doing the right thing and making it use the ubiquitous AR15 magazines.

My Mom use to tell me, " alway's be a good boy,don't ever play with guns". I guess I didn't listen to her. You guys talking about guns has given me the urge to go and do some shooting again! Happy Trails!

I had to look on youtube to see what a Microtec AUG looked like.  I have seen those before just didn't know what they were called.  I've wondered how looking through the scope felt, it looks rather small and difficult to pick up a target.
 
Coyote, go get the gun.  I just personally don't think gold coins will be worth anything in the future.  I don't think we will become a bartering society like the old days, we will be too far gone for that.  Uhh...got to go, the sky is falling.  Ahhhhhhhh!
Seriously though, go get your stuff NOW, prices are going through the roof!

 get the AR, it's got better appreciation than the gold coins.  try checking out the equipment exchange on AR15.com, that'll will give you a good idea of values and options. AR's are pretty modular and let you customize or personalize them almost infinitely.
