    AK 47 for SHTF apocalyptic terror and mayhem and what not. While I served with the mighty AR and love it, I am going to change my primary to an AK. 1. It's just cheaper to train with. Ammo is half the cost (and I reload) 2. It's heartier in the field. I am disciplined with field cleaning...

    Between the 7.62x39, 300 AAC Blackout, or 30-30 Winchester, which one would be best suited for short range hunting in a post-shtf / teotwawki world? There is a small patch of woods on my property that deer pass through. If I were to set up a deer stand we are talking about a 50 - 75 yard shot...

    Some kind of new disease has broke out, society has collapsed and no more trucks are rolling. Over the following weeks the power goes out, the water stops running, people stop driving their cars and trucks, friends, neighbors and strangers come around begging for food. The food preps are...

    Some kind of worse case situation has happened, you and your family have to bug out to the Bug Out Location, and how what? Keep in mind, this is a worse case situation, meaning you did not have time to grab any gear from your home. The only gear you have, is the gear you have stored at the...

    This is an opinion piece on the 300 Blackout. A couple of days ago I posted a question about Palmetto State Armory on the survivalistboards facebook page. There were several suggestions to go with the 300 blackout instead of the 223/5.56mm. This is my reply to those suggestions...

    I have both. Stood em shell to shell, looked and compared them visually and thought I would post this. The russian round seems like a no brainer for most of us bug in types, sub 100 yard shots. What say you?

    After watching last weeks Top Shot I've been thinking about the 5.7 for several reasons and would like to hear what other are thinking. With the 5.7 the FPS is high enough to be effective, but the thing that has peaked my interest is that I can shoot the same round from a 5.7 pistol virtually...

    I have a Wasr 10/63. I shoot it very well, and havent had a single failure of any type. Would this rifle be ok for SHTF, or should i get a "Higher quality" AK? I love my Wasr, but have a friend who thinks arsenal are just leaps aad bounds over the wasr, so what should I do?

    Who knows. If Bo has anything to do with it he will tax the crap out of ammo importing to begin with. That'll make the foriegn stuff real expensive real fast. (of course that's what the idea) If shtf I expect .22 to be the most expensive the fastest. I'm banking on ammo being the currency. It...

    I am about ready to embrace "diversity" and add an AK platform. Kind of leaning toward the 7.62 as opposed to 5.45. There is a gent here locally that has a Norinco and an Inter Ordinance for sale at 650 each. The Norinco has been tacced out with brown plastic furniture with collaspible stock...

    ARs of Russian Inspiration "What do you get when you cross an AR with an AK? You get the Rock River Arms LAR-47, which accepts AK-47 mags and is chambered in 7.62 X 39 Russian. Gracing the cover of the March 12, 2012 issue of Gun Digest the Magazine is the Centurion 39, an American-made AK-47...

    Got my first AK today! I've had a few SKS's, and a Mini-30, but this is my first AK, I like it! Picked my stepdaughter up from school today and just decided to swing into one of the local shops to see if they had anything I couldn't live without, saw the AK on the rack and kept glancing at it...

    Went to Cabellas the other day and when I walked through the door I heard quite a commotion, many voices calling my name from over in the firearm section. When I walked over , there was one voice that stood out from the rest, a sirens song it seems... I walked out with a CAI Polish AKMS...

    Yeah, other guns are better. But what about a 10 round fixed mag semi-auto. Keep in mind I live in NY, so we cant have tapco mags for the SKS's. I got roughly a half dozen of them mostly private sales too. I have one Saiga conversion in 7.62x39 and I recently bought a S&W M&P 15. I also...

    Which do you use in your SHTF AK or SKS hollow point, soft point or ball. I am buying wolf hollow point ammo and keep at least four mags loaded with it all the time.

    Last weekend I was at a buddies house, and we were talking about stockpiling 223, 7.62x39, 308,,,,, various types of ammunition. I told my buddy that I was stockpiling Monarch 223 and Monarch 7.62x39 from academy sports and outdoors. Its steel cased ammo, but it only cost $4.89 for a box of...
