    My take on this article...

    1911 in .45acp
    Revolver in .357mag
    AR in 5.56x45mm
    Pump shotgun in 12 gauge
    AK47 in 7.62x39mm

    Anyone else have an opinion...?!

    The only thing I would change IMO, would be the handgun to .45ACP

    My analytical take on the video.

    I agree with the 9mm handgun but it would have to be stainless steel. Prefer the 1911 clone style. I like the 1911 in 45 acp but my wrist won't handle the recoil.
    The 10/22 is OK but I prefer a stainless Marlin Mod. 60 because I feel it has a stronger action. JMO. A speed loader would make a good accessory for the Mod. 60.
    Mossberg 12 ga. pump is OK but being that my DW is a 5' 2" weakling, I would opt for the 20 ga. Either in a Mossberg or a Remington Express, with the extra barrel.
    Don't agree with the AR. Would prefer a Marlin 30-30.
    Not a fan of Mil-Surp so #5 would be a 22 Target Pistol. One needs to practice!!
    #6 is a must in my state. A 50 cal. muzzle loader for deer.

    a .22 rifle
    a handgun you like
    a high powered rifle
    a shotgun
    no preferance on make or caliber but that`s the basic armory a person needs
