That's a good point, having a muzzleloader is a good idea.
I just laugh at the guy though who says you can shoot rocks out of it

One last thing to note that i see all the time in forums. The .223/5.56 vs .308/7.62 debate. Over and over i hear people say a .223 is junk because they will take their .308 and kill you from 800 yards before you are in range. In 99% of all real situations, If the person has the skill and training to consistently hit a human sized target at 800 yards, they are probably smart enough to let you get within 200 yards anyway and take the guaranteed kill that they could make with a .223 also.

From personal experience the AR15 would be a fine choice. There would be many parts to be had if the SHTF. Most important is ammo. 7.62 is a NATO round. There will be ammo all over for this unless you intend to go overseas.
The sights on older models can easily be dialed in with a nail to move the sights.
My first choice for a weapon in a long term scenario is ammo availability. Problem is most models that we can buy lawfully do not have the 3 round and full auto burst. Still a good weapon when you proficient.
