    What receiver do you have?......shotgun barrels, Muzzleloader, .44 mag, .357 normally are on an SB1....the 308 and .223 require the SB2.
    Just a heads up.

    I have the SB1 receiver. I could also look for a chamber insert for the 20 ga bbl. In fact I believe I have one in 20ga to 357 maximum. Now I just need to find where I stashed it.

    Gottacha........
    When dealing with Handi Rifles.....just be aware.

    I have heard so many people interested in picking up extra barrels, only to come back from a show with an old $75 buck shotgun, only to find it won't work.

    Assuming you are wanting weapons with proven reliability in long term useage. In that case I would get:

    1903 Springfield and have it remade into a scout style rifle and chambered in 30.06.
    Remington 870 12 gage. Known to be good for in excess of 17,000 rounds.
    Ruger GP100 revolver 357 Known to be good for over 15,000 rounds.
    Ruger MKII 22 known to be good for over 100,000 rounds. I would get the long barrel version.
    NRA Life Member since 1972. Distinguished High Power Rifle, Distinguished Smallbore Prone US Palma Teams & US Dewar Teams,(2) US Palma Trophy Individual Match wins, Centenary Trophy, Certified Small Arms and Ammunition Test Director, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland.

    Old thread; OTOH, an interesting question.

    My first choice for a rifle would a FAL StG 58 with a DSA barrel. OTOH, I have more ammo for 5.56 or 7.62x39. Last, but last would be 5.45x39 as I have 2 1080 round spam cans.
    Shotgun would be an 870 or a early 1960s Rem 1100.
    Pistol would be a 9mm; simply because I have more ammo for 9mm than 45 ACP.

    Basically, my plan isn't to one of anything because if I only have one what if it breaks?

    What you do there old friend is you buy stuff that ain't going to break! Things like 870s and Mossberg 500s, and S&W N and K frames and 1911s. And rifles that have been through 4 wars minimum!

    And if all else fails you buy the 4th gun; an H&R topper with a .357 barrel, .223, .308 and a 30-30 barrels and a 12 gauge tube with interchangeable chokes so you can keep using the ammo!

    One of my big regrets is that I did not get a Topper barrel in 7.62x39 before they quit making them.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    Sooner or later everything breaks or one runs out of ammunition for it.

    I "love" 1911-A1s both real and clones, also Browning Hi or High Powers and CZs.
    A High Power was made by FN and a Hi Power was built by FN and sold by Browning.

    I have fun firearms, hunting firearms, target firearms and force equalizer firearms. The most precious to me are family firearms.

    Some things break during this lifetime. Some things break in the hands of your third great grandchild.

    And if you don't have enough ammo to last until he needs it you don't have a big enough pile.

    There is a difference between how much ammo it takes to win a war and how much it takes to keep you alive at the homestead, and how you source it.

    If my kids, grandkids, and great grandkids break everything they'll have coming and shoot up all the ammo before that time, I will be very, very impressed....

    Firearms last a very long time with doing nothing more than keeping them clean. About all I do extra is after the bore is clean; I use Radcolube. It does the same as CLP, it is US Military and NATO accepted. Before I shoot, I run a patch through it.

    I'm well stocked with ammo. When ammo was easy to find and inexpensive; I bought a lot. The why did I buy a lot? I'm old enough to remember what NRA/DCM sold 1903-A3s and 1911-A1s for and know what they cost today.

    I have no plans or interest on fighting a war.
