Hello i have a russian sks and an ar-15,which one would you keep in a end time SHTF.I like them both but leaning toward the sks, any thoughts.

The AR-15 of course there will be more ammo to scavange from the bodies of the dead... with 7.62x39 not so much so. :chris:

Both good choices. Which one do you have the most ammo for? I like what Mstnpete said hopefully somebody will be with ya wife, son, daughter.

I would invest in an AK. Less to go wrong with the AK compared to the AR or the SKS. And plenty of people have AK's now.

Between the 2 I would go with the SKS

Ditch the AR and keep the SKS.

As much as I love the AR platform when 2012 comes, the logical choice is the SKS. I want a rifle that never breaks, spare parts can be made with a hammer and a file and can function with almost or no maintenance. And ammo...7.62X39 is the second most popular rifle round in America. There will be plenty to scavenge.

12-06-2009, 8:18 AM
2012 oh no. I like the AR-15 over the SKS at a time like 2012 where you can't pickup the phone and order ammo. You need to make EVERY shot count! Having a SKS(not accurate) is not having EVERY shot count but an AR-15(ACCURATE) on the other hand well... you guys already know.

I second this choice. Voted unanimously the BEST weapon ever fielded to the US Military in a foreign conflict! Those Frenchies sure know how to build a simple, reliable, and accurate weapon! The zombies/looters/rioters/road warriors will tremble in fear while trying to pronounce the name of the instrument of their demise!

Yes, they need good weapons for all the shooting they inevitably do at the enemy.

2012?

Is that like 2000 when all the computers in the world were supposed to crash and planes would fall out of the sky and the entire world infrastructure was going to fail and nothing happened?

If you believe in 2012 as 'the end times' :willy_nilly: then send me a blank check postdated to January 1, 2013. What have you got to loose?

Keep the SKS. More robust than the AR, more accurate than any AK.

So on that note,
In SHTF, what kind of gas should i use in my getaway vehicle? 87 octane or 92?
What color tactical clothing should I wear? ARPAT, Black or Multicam?
What would be the best brand of crackers for my SHTF kit?
When SHTF comes, should I go underground with the mole people or go deeper with the lava men?
When SHTF comes, what brand cola would be most refreshing?

This SHTF stuff was amusing a few years back but damn it gets old.

depends on where you live. I agree though that you're more likely to find parts and ammo for an AR in this day/age, but you can't down play the power and accuracy of an SKS, and there are thousands of those out there too. If SHTF, .223 ammo is going to be gone in a heartbeat as the military scoops it up, x39 might be a little more available...who knows though! I say keep 'em both. That's what gun slings are for...one on the back, one in your hands.:chris:

Reminds me of a story about a Montana survivalist on the CBS evening news back in the mid-1980's.

Were the French already kneeling behind their white flag before dropping the Chauchat from shoulder height? Or, was the test to drop it from shoulder height and then lower themselves to their knees?

This could be an important piece of data...

IMO, whichever you keep/get, get another one of the same for the wife. If the kids are old enough to shoot & can handle a rifle, get one for each of them as well. Being standardized is key so everyone has the same ammo, mags, parts.

:confused:

I believe they were on their hands and knees (taking it in the back door). Therefore, French shoulder height is approximately 2 ft. :surrender::willy_nilly::surrender:

Drop those sissy guns and go with the rugged, manly engineering of the French. A Chauchat is the only logical choice as it never jams, possibly due to never firing a shot before the defenders ran, and its self cleaning! Nothing can surpass the Chauchat as the ultimate firearm.

Keep the SKS. More robust than the AR, more accurate than any AK.

Sell the AR and get an x39 AK to compliment the SKS. One round for both rifles.

Someone should start an official thread that keeps track of all the SHTF threads, so that either A: the mods shut them down Or B: people spam them with stuff like the "Chauchat" comments or what vegas posted so that people get sick of posting them. I might do this later at when im at school...

Fallout 3 = best game ever. My dog puppy my copy last week :mad:. Even though I'd already played through it twice, I shelled out for another copy the same day (and, somehow, resisted the overwhelming urge to beat my dog). That's about the highest endorsement I could give any game.

Glibness aside -- what's going on in the zeitgeist that so many are feeling like this is the end of days? The economy? The looming deficit? China calling in their loans? Threats of 70% Federal taxes? A "domestic" Army? A muslim president clearly sympathetic to the terrorists?

Keep both, you can't always count on finding one caliber, with two choices you have better chances of finding ammo that you can use. Besides, if the SHTF and you have a jam/malfunction in one rifle, you have another to use until you get the jam/malfunction taken care of.

Have you noticed how many threads devolve to simple whining about the topic? Somebody asks ridiculous questions to show their disapproval and I had a bit of fun (for me, evidently I hurt your oh-so-sensitive feelings). But, whining seems to have become a reason for some to be here...
As for assuming some of us arnt prepared just because we are sick of these fantasy threads, my is very ignorant also.
I have no idea how or how 'AREN'T' prepared you anybody else is, and I made no assumption regarding that. If you think this 'fantasy thread' threatens you in some way, why are you here?

Hey, how about this: Don't read it if you don't like it.

Of course, censorship of topics not personally liked seems to be a popular topic of conversation with people who have a strong double standard. When Kes or one of the mods cut off a topic they don't want here--many complain. But let somebody post something you don't like and boom--you want a personal ban stick.

Rather than complain or take a superior attitude, how about you hit the 'New Posts' button near the top of the page and see if something more useful to you is going on? There are literally thousands of members posting on at least dozens and maybe hundreds of topics on any given day.

As for the part I highlighted in bold--Your 'what' is very ignorant?? I always try to reread my posts and see if they make sense to me but I still post things I need to modify at times. Perhaps you should read what you post too...

Have a better one...:p

hahahahaa. That is pretty funny. I usually do proof read everything I type out.
FAIL

As for being "oh so sensitive." Its easy to pull that card when ever someone has a dissagreement with you. Same thing as whining. You cant hear a high pitch in someones text nor can you tell if they whining, complaining or purely talking ****.
Yes we all can ignore these posts about, "what brand of tactical feminine product should i stock up for if my Red Dawn fantasy comes true." But its a triain wreck. You CANT look away. Its like the giant red button that says, "Do not Press!"
Also, I have never indicated a personal band stick but I do agree with you on the double standards all the time. "Freedom this freedom that but say something of your own opinion and I'll hit you" seems to fly around here a lot.

I prefer the following:

"Who will have the best room service during SHTF?"

"What cruise line has the best prices during SHTF?"

"Where can one find the best strippers during SHTF?"

UCLA FTW

Great Post!

The reason there's so many SKS recommendations is cause they're affordable so they really got around.
Whichever weapon is loaded and has the most ammo on hand would be my answer.

Looks like an upcoming movie is going to address at least one facet of our obsession with the SHTF scenario:

I predict that this documentary will go something like this:


There are 50 million or so 'evangelicals' in the U.S.
Let's pick some crazy people who call themselves 'evangelicals', and show how crazy they are.
Let's pretend that all or most 'evangelicals' are bent that way.
Let's conclude that all 50 million 'evangelicals' - and just about anyone who calls themselves a Christian - are about to engage in armed terrorist conflict ... it's imminent, because all of these people are crazy, and you should be scared.
Subtext: We should be more scared of all Christians (who haven't really done anything) than we are of fanatic Muslims who continue to bomb preschools, etc. worldwide.


It's sort of typical of the way propagandists operate.

I too find these threads amusing... and then I remember the L.A. Riots. I then recall what it was like when the Northridge earthquake hit.

:rofl2::rofl2::rofl2::rofl2::rofl2:

During the LA Riots (oooooh) I was doing home appraisals all over the city and other than the smoke, everything was fine. Traffic was GREAT!

My house got crushed in the Earthquake.

1. Called a maid service in Pasadena (not affected) and they sent over 4 girls to clean up the broken glass, etc.

2. Took my wife & kid to an Embassy Suites in Arcadia (not affected) for a few days.

3. Returned to find $ 3,400 in my mailbox from the gubmint.

4. Had about 60 appraisals in the pipeline with loans ready to fund. Lenders all required drivebys to check condition. Did 60 in 4 days at $ 200 a pop.

I guess I'm just not the panicky type. When the SHTF, I'll be selling my ammo at 100 times it's value, then just fly out to Fiji. The S never HTF in Fiji.:D
