A 10/22 weighs 7.5 lbs. An MP5 weighs 7.2 lbs. A Mk18 (no optics, like the other two) weighs 6 lbs. A standard Colt 6920 weighs 6.9 lbs.I am going to look at this as what I could carry realistically in my bug out bag or on me while carrying my m14
yes an AK or AR would be ideal for CQB by itself but to carry either one of those weapons seems unrealistic while carrying an M14. the weight in ammo and guns would be too much
So today If I had to bug out and carry 2 rifles the second rifle would be a 10/22 takedown so that it will carry easily in my bag.
An MP5 or 7 or uzi will work also but they are hard to find so in a real world domestic bug out situation it would definitely be a .22 for me.
