    SHTF is basically just a gun and gear autist's power fantasy, so pick whatever you want. In a real societal collapse you'll wish you prepped more about subsistence farming and first aid than anything to do with guns.

      The closest the USA ever got to Sneed hits the feed in our lifetimes was Hurricane Katrina when the National Guard was confiscating guns from people, and a white neighborhood watch was just indiscriminately shooting any blacks that wandered through. That was back in 2005 before there were cell phones, doorbell cameras, and all the other surveillance technology that exists today. The landscape today is totally different to how it was even just 10 years ago, let alone 19.

          People in general are more prepared for power outages now. Every boomer has a generator from Home Depot. My city has a mini-SHTF almost every winter because our power lines are above ground. Freezing rain causes the water pipes to burst and tree branches to fall on the power lines. The thing that worries me the most is getting stuck somewhere due to ice on the road where any passerby could mug me while I'm stranded and freezing my ass off. A PDW the size of an MP5 makes sense in that situation.

              Looting and violence is common after natural disasters in the US.
              During race riots, it is common for a mob to swarm a residence in the US.
              The US is on the verge of war with several nuclear armed countries.
              In the US, the wage gap is higher than ever.
              In the US, life expectancy has dropped, and wages have dropped.
              The US Capitol was not long ago stormed by a large group of people.
              There are large areas of the US where the police can not be counted on for protection.
              natural disasters and weather are increasingly causing extended power outages and lack of functioning utilities.
              In additional to the normal mass amounts of immigration to the US, we are going to start being faced with exponentially more due to climate change refugees.
              Global warming is a vastly more imminent issue than what people are aware of.

We are not on the verge of a nuclear war, we are funding a proxy war to drain Russia. Mass immigration is just going to turn us into Brazil.

                And if you actually use your firearms to defend your home in that scenario, you will be put through the wringer by a commie district attorney. You will seriously have to wait until the mob starts breaking in "Night of the Living Dead" style before you can shoot any of them unless your state has very robust castle doctrine laws that extend to the curtilage of your home.

    It's not great but not terrible. Most people don't have armor as much as anons like to sperg out and pretend everyone does. 9mm is common and easy to find, but finding more mp5 mags may be a bit of a challenge. It's low recoil, acceptably accurate, can take smaller game. The ammunition is relatively light and not that bulky. The gun is a bit heavy for a 9mm carbine but only by a "who cares" amount. You're probably not going to get as much milage out of the select fire as you think and the manual of arms for reloading is a bit slow. If you're looking for fights instead of avoiding them when possible this is an objectively wrong choice but if you want anything approaching a long lifespan you shouldn't be doing that anyways.

    >Ease of finding ammo
    How plentiful is the ammo in your area? Are you looking for .224 Valkyrie or 5.56x45mm? Don't assume you'll just be able to transport your stash of ammo with you everywhere.
    >Ease of finding spare parts
    It won't last forever can you easily find replacement parts? Again a stash won't matter if you end up leaving it behind/losing it, you have to be able to source "new" parts.
    >Ease of finding another
    If lost/confiscated/etc how easy would it be to replace with something where the training you've done with the rifle carries over?

    >Is it an ok weapon for SHTF?
    No. Ammo is plentiful though.

    Within the US for a semi auto rifle you're basically just being a contrarian if you aren't using an AR platform for your "SHTF" weapon as it's clearly the best in class for the above criteria. A lot of the world it's the AK platform, you could make an argument for the AK in the US as well just because there are enough of them, and the tolerances are loose enough you could probably jury rig it enough to keep working... but from what I've seen ammo is far less common than .223/5.56.

    Not that it even matters, because in a SHTF situation you're probably going to get popped by Bubba's hunting rifle. They'll ghillie up in the woods and pop tactical pinata's as they walk by.

    If you hold and aim it correctly. Automatics Semi Automatics Long Rifle Automatics and so on have a certain trick to them. As you fire relax and don't focus so much on 'where' you want the bullets to get to. Be one with your peace enforcing artillery—be like the very light of the Sun with them kay? You know. I just saw a couple of Police Officers pass by in their squad car and I was glad one of them at least looked at me and I got to nod at the officer. I take it as a tacit understanding of thank you for your services.

    "I'll protect you if you protect me." - ???

    Unfortunately there aren't many police officers patrolling the area yet I notice many people abide by the law anyway so it's kinda like a win-win situation if you think about it. More like win-win-win. It'd be ideal if there was at least 3 police officers every 5 to 6 blocks out here in the city but oh well. There are more nice people than you think if so many are following the law.

    My favorite gun is the Desert Eagle or in other words Deagle for short. It's a high powered caliber with crystal diamond bullets and can be shot from 2.9 miles at times 48km depending how high up you are. The trick to firing I mentioned at the beginning works with all types of guns really. I use to play Counter-Strike with my younger brother at Internet Cafe a long time ago. My Dad owned some type of handgun as well when I was a child.

      The only thing you need to worry about with an MP5 are extractor springs. Besides that an MP5 will last several hundred rounds between barrel, bolt, etc. It's a G3 scaled down to 9mm that's 6 pounds. It's overbuilt for what it is. An MP5 is also one of the most lethal firearms against unarmored targets within 50 meters. It's pretty much the lowest recoil gun that can take down a person with half of the recoil of an AR15.

    no if you dont have at least a $4.000 sopmod m4 clone with pvs14, crye multicam tm and an onwards reseadch inc. plate carrier you will die in shtf (shit hitting the fan for the normies out there). You will also need a breacher style shotgun for room clearing so you can steal from the ones without $4.000 sopmod clones, pvs14 and crye multicam tm. Make sure to also get your training from SDI so you can maintain your m4 sopmod clone and get training from haley strategic llc if terms such as slicing are foreign to you. If you dont dont do these things you will die. As a side arm i recommend a warrior poet tm glock or you will die ad well.

      >can stack and carry a shit ton of ammo
      >most firefights are <100m
      I would not underestimate a 9mm carbine in a SHTF scenario. Pic unrelated.

        just sucks cuz they tend to be somewhat heavy, and at the same time, the ammo itself is also like twice the weight of 223

        I think something like a Sub 2000, which is super light, would be fantastic though. plus, the weight of the ammo goes into the grip, which I think makes it better balanced.

        7.62x39 doesn't lose much velocity from a short barrel

          The krink looks like a solid choice

              damn it. Doesn't 300BLK work better in shorter rifles?

    It's the greatest gun of the post WW2 era and I say this as a pro-Russian/anti-imperialist/Third Worldist (in the original sense of the term)

    Since this is the most tangentially related thread, I'll give you the following scenario: For whatever reason, the electric grid in North America has failed (cyber attack, solar phenomena, incompetence, etc.) for approximately 5 years.

    You aren't informed of it happening, you simply come to this conclusion as all functioning utilities stop working all around you.
    What do you immediately do?
