OK, so the Russkies decide that instead of just making the night sky light up with errant missiles over Norway while Nobel Peace prizes are being handed out below.... This time the missiles are in the air and it is no drill.... You have less than five minutes to make your escape (if you live near the coastlines) and maybe 30 if you don't and live near any high value target. And, you can only take one of each. What do you grab??

Okay, I'll go first. :arrow: SOCOM II, SIG P556, and SOG Seal. YOU :?:

M1A EBR w/Leupold Mark 4 4.5-14x50 scope, Kimber Ultra CDP w/Crimson Trace grips, cheap Gerber knife that'll get the job done.

Luckily, I'll have the wife with me who can grab the Ruger 10/22, her Kimber Ultra Carry, and a Leatherman.

Good evening.

Well... It depends...

If I don't have a realistic chance in hell of fleeing the Philadelphia strike zone before the first nuclear explosion, then I'd like to sip a nice Riesling while waiting for the glow and subsequent nuclear wind, which will incinerate me in the blink of an eye. At least I'll die with the sweet taste of a lovely Riesling as my final pleasant memory.

On the other hand...

If I have a reasonable chance of successfully executing one of my pre-planned and pre-programmed escape routes, I load all of my guns and ammunition I can take within five minutes into the back of my truck along with my previously-setup survival gear and science equipment (computers, geiger counter, power systems, radiation exposure meter, radio equipment, etc.)

I definitely wouldn't be able to pack all of my firearms and ammunition within five minutes, but I should be able to get about half of the collection (if the safes cooperate) and most of the ammunition. The guns I'd want for sure would be the Benelli Super Black Eagle II 12-gauge (and all shotgun ammunition), SIG 556 DMR (and all of my 5.56mm Hornady TAP ammunition), Thompson (and all .45 ACP ammunition), Smith & Wesson Model 686-6 .357 Magnum (and all .357 Magnum ammunition) and as many other handguns and associated ammunition as I can grab starting with the .45 ACP's first and working my way down in caliber until the five minutes are up. And, of course, I'd already be wearing my P230SL. :)

My escape routes are classified, but suffice it to say I'd be fleeing structured society and government relief centers in favor of the wilderness with an emphasis on not being found (or findable.)

Easy, my AK since I will not be picking 5.56 NATO off of dead Russians but 7.62x39mm. Hell, I'd probably grab one of their AKs since it will be fully-auto. A 9mm pistol since they use that and probably my old Enfield bayonet.

But, it seems that in Iraq and Afghanistan the insurgencies seem to have no problem getting ammo for their weapons and do not have to scavenge dead Americans to have ammo. So, I'd probably start out with my Sig 556 or M1A until rounds for those rifles start becoming more scarce then cache them and use what the invading force is using. The problem America would face is that if an invasion force were to set foot on American soil then the only supply routes (Canada and Mexico) to get our "native" ammo would be closed...probably invaded as well. The oceans are great barriers for defense but once crossed they become a coffin preventing resupply from friendly nations.

I'll also grab a Russian dictionary or two.

All of these are very interesting replies. I think the response on the five minutes to showtime scenario we would have if the Russian submarines let fly are realistic - if you only have five minutes, the old adage of "don't run, you'll just die tired" definitely comes into play. Enjoy a good glass of wine, some (remaining) quality time with your loved ones or significant other, and then just go outside and watch the fireworks show.... Give me thirty minutes and I can get a real good head start to "higher ground"!

What got me thinking about this was the news coverage of the Russian missile launch that resulted in an out-of-control missile spinning thorugh the sky over Norway while Nobel Peace prizes were being handed out, and for those of you who are gamers, playing Modern Warfare 2, and having to fight Russian paratroopers trying to occupy "Burger Town" - the whole scene of troops landing in Everytown, USA was thought provoking. The vignette is called "Wolverines!" for all you Red Dawn fans out there.

If The Day does come, sounds like most of you are well-armed and ready!

So, Ullie, if you're "on the air" - which weapons are your "go to" grabs?

Anyone else want to "war game" this one??

Gotta disagree. While I like Rieslings, you're gonna need a wine that can overcome the taste of the nuclear wind. I'd go with a hearty Gewurtztraminier. You know the old sayings, "If you're going to a wine tasting, you best bring enough wine." and "Two bottles is one and one is none."

And to stay on topic - LWRC M6A1, Kimber TLE, Emerson CQC would be my load-out of choice

I have my 556, Mossberg 500 breacher and Colt 1911 all in a Blackhawk double rifle bag along with a decent amount of ammo for each (yes the bag is heavy as hell). So I'd just grab that. Knife would be a Leatherman multitool.

I would call my buddy up and we would meet at his gun shop. I would take the SCAR 16s and he would take an ACR. Pistol, um... I would go with the reliable Gov Colt 1911 w/crimson laser grip. Knife... a big one in a sheath, probably that big Gerber one I got.

If I couldn't get to the gun shop I would just grab my trusty sig556

No offense geardo but if I was your buddy, I would pass on the "yet to be proven" ACR when my life is on the line. SCAR is a keeper though :wink:
