22 long rifle for shtf

  1. Firearms General Discussion
    First thing someone is going to ask, "Why spend more on 22 long rifle than you have to?" The simple answer, I do not like buying junk. I am willing to pay a few dollars more for reliability and accuracy. My top brands: CCI Federal For general target practice, Remington golden bullet For...

    How viable would an MP5 clone in 22 long rifle be for a SHTF / TEOTWAWKI event? What makes an MP5 clone in 22 long rifle different than any other 22 rifle? Weight, cost, sight radius... etc. For example, with a Walther MP5 clone in 22 long rifle, you are going to spend at least $300, probably...

    What are you doing to prep for Nov 2020? Getting any new toys that may be restricted? Preparing for a downturn of the economy? Growing your faith? Drawing your line in the sand and preparing mentally?

    Does anyone think an MP5 clone chambered in 22 long rifle would have a role in a SHTF / Doomsday event? Awhile back I did some horse trading and ended up with a Walther MP5 clone in 22 long rifle. I am sure if loaded with something like CCI stingers the MP5 clone would do its job quit well. I...

    I am looking for some information for an article. How plentiful is 22 long rifle in your area? Please take a second to vote. Local walmart has shelves full of 22 long rifle; this is everything from Remington thunderbolt, to Winchester, to CCI, to Federal. For the first time in a long time...

    So my plan for hunting small game in a SHTF scenario was to use my .223 and go for headshots on bunnies and squirrels, which obviously isn't ideal. I also have a 9mm. Also not ideal. Those calibers will both decimate game that small, and they're also extremely loud, which in a WROL situation is...

    From a prepping point of view, should "buy cheap and stack deep" apply to 22 long rifle? What kind of accuracy could we expect to see between cheap and expensive 22 long rifle? I decided to put those questions to a test at a local sand pit. My oldest son brought his new Remington model 597...

    While stockpiling survival gear for a long term SHTF / TEOTWAWKI situation, I think it is important to pause, review, and then move forward. It does no good to stockpile the same thing over and over, while overlooking other essential preps. The changing of the seasons, a new year, or every 3 –...

    Recently I asked the people on the SurvivalistBoards facebook page what rifle calibers they hunt with. I made sure to specify what calibers they currently own and use, and not what calibers they plan on buying. The purpose of the question was to generate a survey of calibers that people are...

    There are already strings concerning air rifles; and true, some of these little fellows ain't so little. But in the realm of firearms, not a whole lot is discussed about low-power firearm ammunition. I would like to hear other folk's experiences with CB caps, sub sonic ammunition, target .22...

    I'm a guy. I like power tools. I like high power rifles. But then there's the matter of reason. Guns go bang. Not just that, let's face it, they actually go BOOM!!! Whether in some mountain holler, over flatland, or down city streets, sounds travel further than you ever wanted them to go...

    I have read two different schools of thought as far as aquiring & maintaining a SHTF stock. I have a pretty basic arsenal, but it suits my situation. The standard 22lr,12 guage,a simple & durable defensive/hunting rifle(sks) & 3 handguns in .45ACP,10mm & .380ACP. My question is would it be...

    It was the last weekend of regular deer season, saturday night. A long time member of the deer lease drives up to the camp, and backs his truck up to the scales. That is usually a sure sign that there is a deer in the back of the truck. They get the doe weighed and are stringing it up to skin...

    Just curious if there is any sort of consensus on how much ammo to have on hand for a shtf event? Thoughts......

    It is pointless to explain why pistols are a necessity in a SHTF situation, anyone that thinks they are not maybe needs to do some more research. In fact a pistol, be a revolver or semi-auto could have a case made for them in just about any situation. My question and comments are going to be...

    What do you think of the 22LR as a survival round you can carry a 1000 round easy and its great for hunting all small game and birds and medium size game can be taken with accurate shot placement. And its does not make a loud noise to scare game and give your position away and it can be used for...

    A few days ago I picked up a brick of Winchester 22 long rifle ammo. The brick either has 333 or 330 rounds in it. Has anyone used this Winchester 22 long rifle ammo before? If so, what did you shoot it from, how reliable was it and was it accurate?
