Me: XD (I'm better with a handgun)
Wife: AR (She's quite the shot with .223 and .308)
Friend: 30-06 (He can hit 500 yard targets in his sleep)

First, I'm going to shoot as many as possible, as far away as possible with the 06

Then, inside 150 yards or so, I'm going to move to the AR (Ultimate Zombie hunter, IMO...)

When I'm out, I'll take the XD within 25 yards

Considering I'm the most skilled, and the scoped rifle is the hardest to use, I'd take the scoped rifle.
Friend would get the AR.
Wife would get the .45, that way there's only 8 rounds for her to waste, not 30. She's mostly there for covering fire.

I'll go with the "good all around" AR
My fictitious wife will have my back with the .45
And my friend (who should feel lucky he even got a weapon), will get the heavy, slow, low cap, but long range 30-06.

well im single but my best friend has a girlfriend so ill use her...

I'll take the AR15 becuase i own one and its the only semi auto rifle in my entire group of friends (thats actually true which is the sad thing), and im the most confident with it

My Best Friend would take the 06 becuase hes built like a fuckin mule and can hit damn near anything, espessially with me spotting for him. oh and he's have the .45

His girlfriend would carry supplies and extra ammo, niether of us ( meaning *I*) trust her enought to carry a gun.

If it were my dream set up, Id carry a PTR, my GF would carry an AK, my BF would carry an AR, and his GF would carry a shotty with glocks and XDs on our hips and extra bolt guns in the trucks :twisted:

Since my wife doesnt like guns at the moment but understands the "Need" for them , in this situation
I would Give her the .45 because if she uses it it'll probably be Close range .

I would take the AR , Just Cause I know how to use it and my friends are jackass's and couldn't handle having to aim fast and shoot.

My best friend in this case would probably be my cousin just cause he's the only friend I would trust with a gun and he could prolly hit anything I asked him to.

If it were real life ,

I would take my Socom II M1A with my P220 .45 on my side, My best friend would take my Ak and my .357 colt , and my wife would take my other Ak with my SS Walther ppk.

hm, that's sortof hard. But:

Wife-.45 I would tell her to go hide, and if she needed to use it she is very capable of defending herself. Without her in trouble, I can focus on what's going on
Friend-.308 Depending on the situation I could put a mid-range overwatch on him and let him take people out, or get him (if he could shoot well) to watch me and I would take lead.
me- ar is left.

Assuming its a friend I trust enough to give one of my guns to. Not often the case.
Pretty much my angle. However my wife has her own gun.
Take care of eachother

Me-AR.... I am near sighted but don't use glasses even though I can almost garentee that I'm gona hit my mark. And that is due to my NAVY exp. as a GunnersMate. Just put the sites at true 0 and I'm good to go.

Wife-.45..... I know she would be to scared to use it anyway, she would mainly be carring it for me.

Friend (My MOM)-bolty.... a lot better eye sight than me, and I know she would have no problem shooting some one if need be and has done b4. She's a prior AirForse MP and shot a guy in the leg that was trying to run away. He was a faster runner, so she slowed him down, problem sloved.

And the mostlikly order we would die in would first be my wife, then my mom, then me. My wife would be freaking out to much just trying to keep her little one safe. She would do somthing stupid and down she goes. The little one would then go to my mom as she has the most exp. with kids. The .45 would then become mine. My mom, I would only suspect going down eventualy do to her limited mobility from having 2 total knees done on only 1 knee already and she recently turned 50. By then, I'm shure we would have met up with some of the other groups and form a much safer group. I'm shure all that would happen well b4 my mom went down. So I don't think she would go down at all. She is also an outstanding cook that can make a meal from nothen, so she would be to important to the newly expanded group.
