"...correct answer..."? Ok, I know I'm probably picking nits, but it seems to me that there really is no correct answer without more information, as others have pointed out.

If all I knew was that it was going to happen, and I had no way to avoid it, I would go with my SR9c and a couple of spare mags. The reason that I would chose this over an AR or a shotgun is that I figure that any sort of gun fight I may stumble into would be fairly close quarters where a long gun may prove to be more of a hindrance than an asset.

Raises the question of how to select a truly effective instructor ... just sayin' ... now that would be a really useful poll.

Hint: Once past the mechanics, it's all about context ...

Wow, it would appear to me this instructor thinks he is a great instructor. Let's change it around a bit.

If I knew I was going to go to class today and get asked a trick question, what would you do?

If you dig a tunnel straight through the earth, will you come out with your feet first?

I would prefer a Ma Deuce 50 BMG and a Navy Seal Team or a squad of Marine Force-Recons. Of your choices with no further information, I would bring an AR-15 because it is effective for short to longer range targets with more capacity.
