I wouldnt have fed those pigs to my dogs.....lol. ( We raise catfish in a few of our ponds so those fish are well fed via feral pig.)


They do more damage to things around here that ARE good to eat however.

With that said......I would eat um if thats all I had left. ( If left unchecked, them porkys would destroy most everything we grow to eat.)

Dumped all of um with the " battle boomstick " in other pic below.

To the OP

Advice
1. Buy quality over quantity.
2. Buy NATO or Bloc calibers (depending on your AO and opposing force)...so long as you are comfortable with those calibers...arthritis can trump this position.

Questions you should be answering for yourself before asking how many guns is enough:

- How many people are you arming...yourself, a family, a crew, a neighborhood?
- Are you defending a position or oscar mike and do you have a backup plan if you have to stay (hurt/sick), or have to leave (fire/flood/food shortages, poison gas, radiation)
- What do you envision the opposing force to be...a lone wolf, crazed hurrican survivors, mauraders, zombies, military forces, angry mobs?
- Have you considered spare parts for the guns you have...small parts and wear parts that often bend/break, cleaning kits, etc?

Others will weigh in with their ideal setup...but only you can answer your own question.
(Your Wife's opinion may vary)

I'm friends with a semi-famous gun industry photographer, and periodically i seem him post something on his facebook like "so a few months back i think i left a gun at X place for a photo shoot, anyone seen it" and eventually someone will pipe up and be like "yeah I was holding onto that for you"

The guys I know in Texas only eat the piglets. They fit nicely in a pan in the oven. One guy baked up a little 5-10 lb porky his 5 year old daughter shot with his AR.

The " pistol" in 2nd pic was used to dump that paticular pig.

Note: AKs are the secondary weapons within my group. That is why I only need 2 of them . ( Not counting cached wpns)

Once you have a rifle with high quality optics for each adult in your group as well as supporting magazines, gear to carry them, and ammunition I’d focus on food.

Once you have 2,000+ calories a day in long term food storage for every man woman and child in your group for a year you can spend another penny on more guns.

Back in the early 1960s Dad decided that everyone in the family should have a either a S&W .38 Special cop gun or M1911 .45 plus a 12-ga. pump, a scoped .30-'06 deer rifle and an M1 Garand. The women each had a .22 rifle, an M1 carbine and a .38 Special revolver.

Somehow that logic still works for us. Only things added over the years were a couple .30 carbine Ruger Blackhawks and .357 leverguns.

You could do lots worse.

You could certainly do a lot worse. Not sure that I understand the rationale of the .30carbine Blackhawk but everything else makes sense.

This one is easy. Ammo commonality with the M1 Carbine.
