Interesting that most would prefer a shotgun over a AR......

Still not many AR style firearms, just curious/wondering why folks aren?t including those......they aren?t on my list either.

I do own an AR, but my reason for selecting a JW Marlin 336 in .30-30 for my rifle is that the .30-30 is a versatile cartridge. It?s a proven deer cartridge in the event I have to rely solely on hunting for meat.  I know there are those who hunt deer with 5.56, but I?d prefer to rely on a .30 caliber.  .30 soft points would be great defense rounds also.  Plus I live in an area where the maximum effective range would be 200 yards. If I lived where ranges would be any longer, I?d opt for a bolt action .30-06, or maybe a Garand.

I chose the 336 over the AR because of caliber and because it?s easy to continuously top off a lever gun. No magazines to run dry.  The same goes for a bolt action, an 870 or an 1100 shotgun. If I was going to select an AR, I?d select one in 7.62x39- an equivalent to the .30-30.

If only 3 for an apocalypse- for common available ammo, survival and relative power/ capacity/ weight/ and reliability

S&W 686-4+
Rem 870
S&W 15T

If only 3 without an apocalypse - to enable my bird hunting, IDPA games, and big game hunting
