I may be wrong but I believe a .40 cal round is less than 0.0063" larger than a 10mm. Not much of a difference. Unless the .40 has a heavier projectile.
The .40S&W and the 10mm shoot the same size bullet. The .40 was the hottest thing out there for a while but is now dying a slow agonizing death. Still ammo will be available forever.
Hell of a lot better than throwing rocks, that’s for sure.
You would have to be really stupid to try anything in an auto that it is not intended to shoot.
Skeet. Exactly the intended application of a semi-auto shotgun I cited. (Well, I said trap...)
I also use semi-auto shotguns for waterfowl hunting.
But not for home defense.
Idiot or not, he’s right on the money with the m1a.
Agree with his choices except I carry a 3006 semi rifle or AR depending on situation, 12 ga semi Pro Series and a Glock 20 10mm which is my EDC. Stock up on ammo so you don’t have run to wallyworld when you shoot all 20 rds. AND a well concealed small backup. Reliable weapons, practice with them to develop muscle memory... stay calm and carry on.
Pay a guy to write, and he probably will.
He doesn’t give anyone else credit for being as smart as he is, and having their own ideas of “essential” firearms to own, and ammo to feed them. I remember empty ammo shelves for months on end, simply because Obama was in office. I’d like to think that President Trump will be re-elected, but I remember thinking that Obama wouldn’t be. There won’t be time for Easter egg hunts, and prices will get stupid if a Dem is elected
The van that was transporting them (all of them, I'm an honest man and would not hold back) were totally destroyed in the fire caused by the horrifying wreck the van was involved in.
None were recovered and alas...the insurance had lapsed, but the driver did survive.
But, if I DID have a few weapons, I would have a 1911 in all three configurations, i.e., Gov model, Commanders model and the Officers model.
I would have several lever action long rifles...with at least one being the 45.70, one being in .357, one in 30.06 and one in that old standby, .35 Rem.
I would have at least one Assault Rifle, uh, I mean an Armalite Rifle style, just for the ability to lay down enough lead to get out the back door, if need be, using the largest damned magazine, several of them, that I can find, a Rem 1100 with at least 3 barrels, an 870 with at least 3 barrels, and one of them fitted with changeable chokes.
And of course, just to be able to put a squirrel or rabbit in the cook pot, that old standby, the 10-22, two of them in fact, one with the plastic stock, stainless steel barrel, etc and the other wooden stocked, stainless steel with ghost sights.
I'd also have my S&W Model 686 at hand, which ammo matches the aforementioned long rifle in .357 and my Bond Arms derringer, with several barrels, at least one .45ACP, one .38/.357, one 22WMR and one .410/.45 Colt.
I would have at least one .22 handgun with interchangeable cylinders in .22 and .22WMR, for small varmint purposes and of course, even though I personally do not like them, several Glock pistols in 9mm, .45 and a 10mm, and of course two 92f's, which are worn on the outside but functional as hell on the inside.
I mean WERE, they were, as in past tense...
And for throwdown purposes, several RG Rohn potmetal Saturday Nite Specials.And one must have a sufficient quantity of ammo, enough, that theoretically, it would have to be stored on a ground floor because of the immense weight...theoretically, of course.
And then, there are the knives...and I cannot for the life of me remember why they were in that van, possibly on the way to be re-sharpened or something, but, be that as it may, all my knives are kaput, but I would conceivably have at least 5, if not more, good Stag handled Dozier style skinners, at least two bone handled bush craft style and probably 10 or 12, even though I personally don't care for them, Kephart style bush craft knives and 40 or 50 or so of tactical folders in Benchmade, Gerber, Al Mar, etc, etc versions.
But, alas, that is a pipe dream, as I previously related, all of my guns (and knives) were destroyed in that Great Fire.
Woe is me.
Seriously...what I have or do not have is nobody's damned business...but I firmly believe hard times are coming.
May not be in my lifetime, may not be bad for me even if it is in my lifetime.
But I am firmly convinced that we are going to have to fight for our country and that fight is going to be doorstep to doorstep, because these damned democrat assholes are hellbent on taking every thing they can from God-fearing, conservative, moral and honest folks like you and I.
Keep your powder dry.
What would you suggest for a 150 lb 50ish woman on a modest budget?
For all those same reasons the SKS is also hard to beat in practicality and reliability.
Everyone has their ideas on what is best. Cowboy carry is what helped the nation expand. (that would be pistol and rifle in same chambering). I like pump shotguns for rugged reliability. Revolvers rarely jam or fail.
The school paid for my ammo so I bought AA skeet and trap loads while experimenting using all my old odds and ends. I learned a few things plus have a whole bunch of Winchester AA shells in storage.
A few surprises. Although I used a Beretta skeet model, I also would try out others. I found out that there were a lot of guns which surprisingly worked fine for skeet.
An old Spanish side by side double was pure poison on those clay birds. The Benelli M1 Super 90 was also good but the recoil probably permanently injured my shoulder.
You are right about one thing. It doesn’t have to be a 12 gauge.
But I am firmly convinced that we are going to have to fight for our country and that fight is going to be doorstep to doorstep, because these damned democrat assholes are hellbent on taking every thing they can from God-fearing, conservative, moral and honest folks like you and I
See my tag line.
The 3 best weapons, rifle, pistol, shotgun, the 3 weapons you are most comfortable & accurate with in calibers which will prove easily obtainable AFTER SHTF. Take your advice from police & military & ignore the rifle range know it alls, they don’t. Keep it simple stupid. Practice, practice, practice. If you are just now thinking of preparing, God help you, but better late than never.
Also, I would put a 22lr in that mix. If its good enough for assassins, its important to consider.
I like the carbine...heh, Mannlicher Carcano...a collectors item for sure, though they do say even though it was inexpensive, it was reliable and could be accurate in the right hands.
I have probably 30% more volume of items in the bag than the guy in video does and its still light and compact enough to throw over your shoulder and go.
I know you asked Lurker. But if for some reason he can’t get the chance to get back to you I can offer a suggestion and why for your situation. :)
