I have a KelTec KSG. I have to admit it is a pretty cool little shotgun. It holds 14 and you can load different loads in each of it's two magazines and switch back and forth for whatever the occasion requires. I need to take it out and run it through it's paces to build confidence that it will be there for me when I need it. It's a Bull-pup design therefore very compact and great for close quarters.

There is a shorter shotgun shell and with it you can load 24. But I need to see what load is available in the short shell and what effectiveness it would have. 12ga shotgun shells are probably more available than .223 in a SHTF scenario when scavenging.

The 12ga is good for close quarters, small game, large game with the right load. It's only drawback that I can think of is being able to reaching out any distance accurately. If I have an extra few seconds I'll grab the .308 for that.

I carry my pistol in 9mm, so I would grab my 9mm carbine to go along with it and as many spare mags and ammo for each as I could manage.

My son also has a rifle in 9mm in addition to four 9mm handguns. The way I see it, 9mm fills in nicely between 22LR and larger calibers. You can get decent power and distance from the carbines with the ability to carry more quantity than larger rifle calibers.

If the S does HTF, I hope to be able to just shelter at home. My wife, son and I all work within 1 mile of home in a small town that is relatively light on liberals. Getting home shouldn't be too much trouble. Being surrounded by state forests, I have plenty of places in mind that I could evac to if necessary. If possible, we're loading up the Jeeps with as much as possible and hitting the deep woods.

Picked up a Sig Sauer P938 (9mm pistol) for the wife. She likes it and its not a bad little conceal gun.

I've got a Ruger P85 (9mm) that I shoot pretty well. Ruger also made a 9mm carbine (PC9) that I've been wanting. Just haven't found one at a reasonable price yet. The pistol and carbine share magazines. I picked up some 20rnd magazines for the P85 that I plan to use in the PC9 whenever I get one. 9mm should be one of the easier calibers to find when scavenging I would think.

Good luck. They don't make them anymore so you have to find a pre loved one. If you can find one, they're going for about twice their MSRP.
