It occurred to me that my .44 also fits under my pillow much better than my long guns. :lol: :lol: :lol:

There's nothing more versatile than a 12 guage shotgun with a smoothbore barrel if you want the ability to switch from birdshot, to buckshot, to slugs. I'd go with the Browning Hi-Cap 18" barrel BPS...short, light and having a lefty in the family (wife) the bottom eject enables any shooter to use it.

My Ruger 10-22 with either the 25 or 50 round magazine. Ammo can be found anywhere. A thousand rounds could fit in the side pockets of my cargo pants. Although I would need a belt or my knickers will be showing. :oops: Can fell much larger beasts than it was intended, and plenty of smaller ones.

I'd say 30 45-70 cartridges in the pocket.I also have the marlin guide gun ported in 45-70.It's a cool gun to own.

I imagine I could get enough in my pockets to keep me out of trouble for some time. :wink: 400 grain Speers at just under 1700fps(guide gun) can make quite an impression. Zombies take heed!!!! :twisted:
