Today is Day Four of Preparedness Blog Crossover Week. I hope you have been enjoying the series.
Today’s question is: What firearms do you feel are most appropriate for long term survival and why?
I’ll be the first to admit I am not the biggest expert when it comes to firearms. But I have read and researched enough to know at the minimum what I would have for long term survival. I’d have a handgun for defense. In my case I prefer a revolver, as it is easier for me to load. I have a shotgun on my wishlist, but I have not had the budget for it. I’d also have a hunting rifle to be able to hunt game for food. Finally, I’d like to have an AR-15.
By the way, The Prepper Next Door, a book I recently reviewed, has an extensive discussion in the Gun chapter that I recommend. The author talks about what firearm is ideal for what purpose such as hunting, target practice, defense and such. I plan on looking at some of the types mentioned before making my choices.
