Weapons Prepping Help, Please!
November 9, 2012 in Guns
Hello fellow preppers!
I should have about $1000 to blow next month on what may well be my last chance to buy guns/ammo when the local traveling gun show arrives. I currently have a beat-up old .30-06, an immaculate WWII era .357 magnum, and an ancient .22 pistol which might or might not work in a pinch (I’m scared to try firing it).
So, what am I missing? I want an AR-type but that’d take most the money, would hardly have any left for ammo. .22 rifle? A really nice one? A cheap one and tons of ammo? Compound bow? The quietness of bows has some appeal, but it’s been about 15 years since I used one, and I’ve never tried to hunt with one.
I live in a real small town and it’d be real easy to bolt to the woods with the slightest warning, so I’m equally torn between defense and hunting.
What do you guys think? I’d really appreciate any input. I’m a girl, so serious kick might be a concern, as is weight of hauling the thing around. I’ve never fired anything other than what’s listed above and a .44 (which hurt! But not as much as getting locked up in FEMA camp…).
