    Who will be your best friend in a post collapse TEOTWAWKI situation? AR-15? Nope. She is more like a girlfriend that wears a lot of makeup. AK-47? Nope. She is a country girl with no makeup. But will work. This one gets the job done. Shotgun? A workhorse that is reliable and a good all...

    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...

    I am fortunate enough to get some overtime this week and use 100% of it on prepping. I would like recommendations on the following scenarios that I came up with for purchasing preps. Facts: I do not own any rifles but have several handguns. I do not have any resources for acquiring water except...

    1. I am deciding between 3 guns for SHTF. IF you could only take one right now of my 3 choices what would it be? Keep in mind I plan on buying at least 12 mags for the AR or Glock or 250 rounds of OO Buck and slugs for the Benelli. 1. Daniel Defense M4V7 2. Glock 20 w/ .40 cal barrel & 10mm 6...

    As I am sitting here thinking about what I should post and how it should be worded, what comes to mind is a jig-saw puzzle. My firearms are divided into 2 main categories, hunting and defense. Hunting includes remington model 700, remington 870, mossberg 590, marlin 336, FN/FAL, ruger 10/22...

    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 have been hearing different opinions lately on what weapons/guns/ammo to put in a b.o.b.. The one that has intrigued me the most was from a buddy of mine's dad. He carry's 2 boxes of 9mm in his go-bag but no guns. he does have storage units and property all over the country with guns and ammo...

    Fist let me say, hello everyone and thank you for reading my very 1st post. I wanted to start of with something simple. Like everything in life, from food, to drink and guns, it all comes down to "Individual Personal Choice". So without further babble, this is my very own weapons choice for my...

    I have been thinking about designing a light weight, bolt action rifle for wilderness survival. Something to take backpacking, store in car, etc. maybe store survival kit in stock. I have a few other ideas to add but I dont want to give it all way

    What do you think about the remington 870 for home defense ? I live in an urban area and there are a lot of robbery going around this area. Should i get a shotgun or a rifle? I have a smith & wesson .357 short barrel but i've heard at night multiple shots like if this were a combat zone. Any...

    This topic has been discussed 50 different times but I want to take a shot at it from a different line of sight. As most people will tell you Weapons are like tools... and you do not use a pounder thingy (hammer) when you should be using a screwer thingy (Screw driver) You should have the...
  14. Firearms General Discussion
    So I am grappling with two choices and would appreciate some input about the pro's and con's about each. In the Blue corner we have the Mossberg 590A1 w/ Bayonet. The obvious advantages are; superior ballistics at close range, a wide selection of ammo varieties (buckshot, slugs, birdshot...

    Don't shoot the messenger, pardon the pun - but it is a good read from the Human Events Guns section: (Human Events is a good blog btw) http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=42558

    So I have been sifting through threads and noticed an abundant amount of people with stock piles of ammo and multiple guns to take with them when they bug out if the shtf... I sincerely wanted to ask, why? Gonna grab your 357, 9mm, AR15, 30-06, .22, whatever. But I have read about people...
  17. Shotgun Forum
    This particular topic has been opinionated in bits and pieces here on this forum, but there's never really been a dedicated topic to it. There's plenty of debate on which long gun is the best for SHTF events, but, everyone knows that the real deciding factor is opinion. It is based on what the...
