under prepared patriot
I'm new to this forum but I already feel right at home. Most of my friends and some of my family tend to think I'm some sort of nut, but when there amongst the starving hordes of people Ill have prepared. I'm only 18 and I live with my parents. However I have begun collecting everything I can for survival. I have gotten some great books on everything from wilderness survival to homesteading. I even started my own bug-out bag. so far I have a 9 inch stainless steel hunting knife, a magnesium fire starter, a compass and a few fishhooks. I realize I am grossly unprepared but I am doing the best I can as of now. I just got a job and I am going to add a new essential item weekly. As soon as I have some money laying around I am going to buy a gun. What would be the best all around survival gun? In John Seymour's book on self sufficiency. he says the .22 is the best for homesteading. Any thoughts or suggestions here?
