    So, I am a fan of both the AR-15 and the AK-47 for SHTF/Homeland Defense or whatever term you use for if things go bad.

    I've had many of both as well as other options like the FAL, SKS, Garand, M1-Carbine, etc. but my pick at this point in time is the AR-15 "M4gery".

    So, things get "western" and that's what my opponents will see pointed at them.

    What's your pick?

    If I only had one choice, it would be the AK-47 for SHTF/Homeland Defense or whatever. Seldom breaks down and ammo is very available.

    I can't pick one...that's why I have both AR & AK :green:

    The AR's for the woman folk & I'd grab the AK

    I prefer the AR platform. 6.5C, .300 BLK. .458 SOCOM, when you really want to leave a mark.

    Neither, HK53 :D. Between the two, AK would only slightly edge out the AR for me.

    My Sig716 if I had to choose between the two as I don't have an AR-15 and I'm not interested in 5.56. Army ruined that for me and I prefer larger calibers. That being said, my SKS is just as nice. Stripper clips are lighter than magazines and I can carry more of them.
