If you could only have (3).......
« on: May 06, 2019, 08:08:23 PM »
Been talking with some friends about what three (3) firearms would they consider a must have if they were all you could have........so it made me curious/think what others thoughts are.  Here are my three, no particular order of preference all of equal importance.

CZ P01 (9mm)
CZ Sharptail Coach Gun (12ga)
Browning SA22 (22LR)

Anxious to see what others consider as their (3).....reasons why aren't really necessary, just model and caliber....Pretty sure we can figure out the use for a particular choice, if not someone will ask  :)

Darn, only three?

My M37 Ithaca dad bought for me in 1969.
My M1A I bought in 1978.
As bad as I'd hate to do without that Colt 1911 I'd be stupid to pick it over the P09 9MM with the RMR and light on it.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Compact D P-01 (with Kadet and SP01 uppers)
Alex Arms 6.5G carbine. An absolute hammer on whitetails, and would be swell for other applications.
Browning Citori 20 ga O/U. Lots of birds down, so many more to come - God willing

AR-15 by PSA, 5.56 NATO. Great shooter, iffy trigger.
Sig P226 in .40 S&W.
CZ75BD

I have a Stoeger 12 gauge pump with an 18" barrel. If I had to sub out one of my 3 for this gun, the Sig would have to take a back seat. But I will never sell that gun.

I'd grab a

Model 12 Winchester for sure.
Remington 700 30-06, or CZ 455 Varmint, or CZ Evo 3 Carbine.  Which ever came out or the safe first. 
CZ 75B without a doubt.

So many other good guns, makes it very difficult to choose.

I would locate whoever it was that claimed I could only have three, and correct their misunderstanding.

Made me think hard about versatility and what I would feel most comfortable having.......isn't even really a doomsday type question, but I suppose it could be.  :o

For me as well. If my cheat of a P-01 with Kadet wasn’t allowed, I would have to choose one of my 22LR rifles - a tough choice in itself..
