I'll take my 20" barrel 9 shot pump 12 gauge smooth bore with flechette rounds. Mr. Taurus Judge for close up.
I've got a ton of stuff from BudK.com but here is more;

100 round drum mag for the AR plus a few 30 round "spares" just in case and anything getting within shotgun range is already bleeding out.

There may be a picture of my .308 here somewhere too, but I don't think I have put up any of the others. My wife thinks I have too many, so I never tell her just how many I have. There are enough I can move them around a little and add one or two without her noticing.

Of course, the .300 Weatherby was not one I could hide, since I bought it while we were on vacation and had to pick it up on the way home .... I did not want to freak out the neighbors at the beach.

I did kind of freak out one of the neighbors at home a while back though. She was sitting in her car on the street when I went to work .... the day after having to chase a raccoon away from my truck in order to go home. I had my son's dog with me because we were keeping her for a few days while he was out of town and she would not return to me so I could get one of the guns at work. I knew if I lefte her she would go after the raccoon and if it had rabies they might still want to put her down even with the shots being up to date. So we had a loose raccoon that was acting a little odd. I took one of my .22s to work with me. Black synthetic folding stock, sling, flash suppressor and barrel guard upside down over one shoulder with a surplus OD green buttpack used as an ammo bag containing mags, ear protectors, ammo, and other 'possibles' in the other hand as I opened the truck door and stowed the gear behind the seat. When I pulled out of my driveway she was sitting at the curb with her mouth still open and her eyes as big a saucers. I had not seen her in the car until I got to the street, but she had a clear view of me the whole time. She parks in the cul-de-sac down from us when she has to wait now. I was going to take my crossbow too, but decided against it at the last minute. Good thing I suppose.

That reminded me of the big festival a couple of years ago. They have it every year for 3 days including the 4th of July and one weekend. They use the money to buy land for the park system in town and they have done it for decades. They have everyone park in a couple of satellite lots and bus them to the park. This time one of the peopl on the bus was commenting on the badge I have on the front of my wide brimmed hat. Not quite a cowboy hat, but a little larger than the usual bush hat. It was unusual to them and they were guessing it origin. When I finally told them is was a South African snipers pin they shut up completely. In fact, the bus got very quiet for a long time. A couple of them followed us for a while as we walked around, but I am sure it was not on purpose.

Nothing like the newest 50 cal sniper rifles, but the most impressive ever, to me, was the Quad 50. Three guys with one in an armored 8 wheeled ATV type vehicle stopped an attack by at least 600 against a field standby location that had less than 20 US on or off duty. Stopped them at the last of three barbed wire fences next to the little 1500' CIA runway in Tan An. Just left lots of body parts, and the NVA running. I evac'ed only one from the 100 round mortar/RPG barrage before the ground attack.
I hated getting shot at and followed for a mile with their 51 cals. Tracers looked like white footballs and nothing on the Huey would stop them.
Of course, the P51 and P 47s of WWII had the equivalent of a quad 50 on each wing.
The revolving 20mm chain gun is also very impressive. Remember, our government has them and we don't.

I was told of an AC-130 strike on an NVA bunker complex near the Cambodian border .... surreal was used often. There was no resistance afterwards.

The only thing that might have been worse was the wrong side of a Arc Light raid by B-52s. They said the ground shook miles away.
