We continue the multi-part series of Questions and Answers involving several websites who each take one simple question…..and answer it. This Q&A will continue through Friday.
The other participating sites are as follows:
Today’s Question: What firearms do you feel are most appropriate for long term survival and why?
Critically important. In most any major disaster the criminal element takes advantage – looting, home invasions, assaults, rapes, and murders. The many horrific events that took place after Hurricane Katrina are good examples. The sharp incline in crime during Argentina’s economic woes provide another window to potentially see the future. If desperation sets in – violence will as well.
As far as specific firearms, the short answer is those that you can shoot well. No point in having a rifle that can take out a deer at 500 yards if you don’t know how to shoot it. As far as a preparedness battery of firearms – pump action shotgun, semi-automatic center-fire, pistol, and a good .22LR rifle. Throw in a good centerfire bolt action or lever action to round it out. A lot depends on environment and situation. Someone living outside the city in Wyoming or North Dakota may very well need different armament than someone living in downtown Atlanta.
Lastly there is ammunition as without it the firearm is nothing but a large paperweight. Store the maximum that can be afforded.
OK folks – how about you? We would appreciate it if you would provide your thoughts, commnts, and maybe even answer the question yourself.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
