I tapped the gas pipe of my 30 to fit a set screw in effect making it a straight-pull bolt action. this for bench testing of varied ammo and handloads. easily removed, but you would be surprised how fast rounds can be cycled and fired.

Norwegian freedom fighters in WW2 built Sten submachineguns with hand tools in basement workshops for $2 per copy.

It can be done again if needed.

the magazines, springs and trunnions are close tolerance parts.

I've always thought that in a scenario like this I would go DIY homemade single shot. As it turns out there really is a global organization following this. Who would have thunk it!

The International Commission on Global Improvised Arms Proliferation or ICGIAP for short.

Check out a guy named Gary Coldiron on youtube. He makes some cool stuff. I've been wanting to make a cheap slamfire 12g for a few years now. Think it will be an interesting project this winter.

327 Federal Magnum almost all around for me! GP-100 & LCR. Henry Big Boy Steel gets a nod, but only because Ruger doesn't make a 77/327 (yet?). Last pick would be a scout rifle, not sure which caliber to go with. I like the ability to make the Savage 110 Scout fit you perfectly, but that Ruger Gunsite Scout is a full 1.5 pounds lighter and available in stainless...

Wish the Ruger Scout took Mini 14 mags.

interesting thread! and the sad part is, in a somewhat paranoid manner....i have given this a little thought.

honestly & sadly....i think a new AWB is looming. and i don't think it will be as gentle as the last, and certainly no more effective at saving lives....but i don't want to go political on this either.

i love a good semi as much as the next gun owner. but i have tried to inject some variety into my somewhat small gun collection, with a focus on effective non semi firearms.

people really underestimate the effectiveness of lever and pump actions for capability of defense. with practice, they are quick, powerful and if trained...provide an almost limitless capacity. the recent new emergence of bolt actions with detachable mags offer capacity and power.

so i say my non-semi collection would be: a lever in 30-30 and 357. pump shotguns in 20 and 12 gauge, in defense and hunting styles. 2-4 bolt actions in scout style (with detachable mags) in powerful & common calibers (308, 223, 30-06, 22). revolvers to match pistol carbines and small derringer style pistols for concealment and back up.

i think the biggest loss would honestly be semi pistols....hard to replace.

but my non-semi selection wouldn't have me overly worried about a safe homestead.

Look at all ban's they all started as one weapon is the problem.
Now there is no need for this weapon either it was used in WWI and II.
Now anything with a magazine is bad.
Then all large bore weapons need to go.
Get rid of one then another and another it will not stop till they have them all.
It's about control, you can not control an armed populace Venezuela is a prime example. The UK, Australia they all want total control and the power to make the population conform to the governments demands.
Study history all dictators disarmed the populace first.
Do not believe it can't happen here because it can if we let it.
We have given away to much of our freedom all ready for security.
Problem is no matter what is done total security is a pipe dream.

I'd go with a .357 magnum revolver for my sidearm. A good pump shotgun, probably a 870 from Remington, with an extended storage tube under the barrel for extra ammo capacity. For my rifle I would go with something like a bolt action, scoped rifle in .308/7.62 NATO, maybe 6.5 Grendel or a 6.5 Creedmoor. If I wanted a slim, maneuverable saddle carbine with plenty of punch I would take a lever action .357 magnum saddle carbine or a Marlin .44 magnum like I already own.

I would need more specifics about what missions I would be performing and what conditions I would be working under before making my final decision. More than likely, I would probably want the 6.5 Creedmoor for my bolt action rifle in about 90%+ of the situations. But you never know. Variables might cause me to go in a different direction.
