I agree, a pistol caliber carbine would perhaps be the best idea, especially for those intending to stay in the city. It will give you the advantage
over most people in the city. Those carrying battle rifles and such will be slightly less mobile than you, and you are out ranging all shot guns and
pistols. Also, since many of you possible antagonists will be carrying pistols, you get the benefit of potentially using their ammo for your rifle.
Would help keep ammo stocks supplied. In a sit-x, a stock pile of ammo is generally useless over the long run, as it will dwindle over time, make you
a tempting target for others, and if you decide to go mobile, you have to take it with you, which means unless your really hardcore and don't mind
lugging 50 lbs of ammo, your traveling on roads in a vehicle, easily the most dangerous form of travel in a bad sit-x. Plus, high the caliber, the
heaver the ammo, the less you can carry. Pistole caliber carbines would allow you to carry quite a bit more ammo then a long range rifle caliber like
a .303, plus you would be more readily able to pick ammo up along the way.
