    This really looks interesting, the price is about the only thing i can think of that is a minus lol. :thumb: http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2017/07/jeremy-s/faxon-firearms-arak-21-upper-receiver-gear-review/ Can anyone point out anything they think would be an issue? 7.62x39 & only takes...

    Hello all, I'm having trouble deciding on what my next firearm should be. I've thought long and hard about it and I would like to go with either a new 20" precision upper (with scope) for my AR-15, or purchase the mighty M1 Garand. Both options would cost about the same (about $700). The garand...

    Im new here to the forum, so I figured I'd ask a question that I've had for about a year now.... It seems that a lot of the complaints from Iraq and Afghanistan are coming from troops that are reporting that the 5.56 doesn't have enough stopping power, sometimes taking 2,3,4,5 shots to stop the...

    I'm asking specifically for the most reliable ammunition for an AR15 (Mine will be a Mil Spec 1/7 twist AR). What 5.56 Ammo do you count on in case the SHTF situations, which ammo has the least FTF rounds. Where do you buy it? I've been looking at ammo for a few weeks trying to decide what...

    Hunting season is here, and I have been thinking about my firearm setup. How many people have more then 1 rifle per caliber? What is the point of stockpiling ammo, and then have 1 rifle that could break? Sure people have spare parts, but spare parts do not help your buddies hunt with you. Part...

    i am on a serious budget and would most likely have to sell a couple of guns to get this (ones im not needing). My friend has a Savage bolt action in .223 that i would also like to get and it strikes me as a great compromise for a main SHTF rifle. it is accurate out to my farthest range, which...

    What do you think the best caliber weapon to have would be in a SHTF situation? i say 5.56x45 NATO due to its use by LEO and Military.

    if a long term shtf/teotwawki/without rule of law/etc occured, would you preferred a .223 or a .308 in a bolt rifle? it should be capable of self defense, but to be honest i think it would see most use for hunting for food.

    I know this has had to have been covered many times before,but when shtf,I'm thinking 12,.22,.308,and 9mm. Bird,buck and slugs are relatively "cheap",1n7/8's ounces of #7 will poke a deadly hole in anything at close range,plus make you an easier shot for a squirrel for your supper.22's are...

    What is the affective range of the 5.56 and the affective range of the .308 round? How many more rounds of 5.56 be carried for the same weight of .308? Does the reduced weight of the 5.56 round Make up for any lack of effeteness? Does any increases in effeteness of the .308 round make up for...

    Click on photo to make larger Hope this picture posts ok. I have given much thought over the years to the description of the term "survivalist". To most of us it means to survive. But survive what? In most forums the term SHTF is used an awful lot. To my way of thinking this could mean anything...

    I own several rifles in .223. They are fun to shoot. I would not shoot a deer with one. I would always choose something larger. So, I ask myself (after TEOTWAWKI) why would I stake my life and the lives of my loved ones on a round with the following limitations? - Marginal kill power for...

    Who here has experience with the 6.8SPC and can shed some light as to the better caliber? I would like for this to be an all around caliber to be used for defense, plinking,SHTF, and putting meat on the table as well. i'M lookinginto getting a STAG 5H upper to go with a lower I already have. Any...

    I'd like to pick up my first Saiga, and I'm can't decide which would be smartest to get. It would be my second rifle after the 22lr, and probably my only rifle purchase for the next few years. I don't plan to convert it immediately, but I might pick up a few critical parts. 5.45 ammo...

    The Reality of SHTF Weaponry for the Newly Awakened United States Citizen Many of us have examined and debated the SHTF scenarios to point of mental exhaustion and I wanted to try and create the most comprehensive and detailed analysis of the topic for the ‘Newly Awakened’; city dwellers who...

    Ok ive already decided on 22LR and 12 gauge(BUCK,SLUGS,#4SHOT) No debate on the viability of these 2 for survival purposes/commonality/availability can't decide between Long Range, Larger Game-308 vs 30-06 Having trouble deciding between these 2 308/7.62 NATO round + NATO round + Civilian...
  18. Rifle Forum
    Anyone have any opinions on this? I REALLY wanted an AR15, but I'm concerned about the reliability and ruggedness of the AR, plus it doesn't look as evil as the AR or AK. I have a few guns as it is, but nothing I would carry as my primary defense. I have: -XD subcompact 9mm as my carry peice...
