In Defense of a Good Weapon

By Joseph Parish

 

One simply can not hide from the fact that our nations financial stability is quickly deteriorating. Our country is surround both from outside and from within by adversaries who desire nothing more then to destroy the lifestyles that we are now living. If the worse comes and it will eventually, we must be prepared.

 

When there is no law enforcement available after a major catastrophe it is always good to know that you have a reliable weapon at your disposal. Unfortunately, in today’s high tech world everyone feels that they are a weapons expert. Ask any of your relatives what the best choice of weapon will be and you will likely hear about the one they see on television the most or perhaps the one used in their X-Box Video Game. Possibly one of your friends is an avid hunter and he naturally will have his own recommendations as to the weapon of choice. Unfortunately, not all video game players or hunters are survivalists and as such their testimonials must be tampered with question. It all boils down to the fact that you will need to conduct some research on your own in order to determine the best weapon for your needs.

 

In addition, you will find that there is no shortage of advice relating to the use of weapons. One person will quickly recommend “shooting first and ask questions later,” while another acquaintance will blurt out how you should not “shot till you see the whites of their eyes.” In all cases such as these one should be well aware that any type of weapon is a killing machine and should be used with discretion. Take advise such as this with a grain of salt since your life will ultimately depend upon how you make your chooses. What works for someone else may not necessarily work for you.

 

Survival firearms can be categorized into three major types such as defense, handgun and hunting rifles. If you are fortunate to have the available funds and resources you may want to stock up on one or two of each type. The most important weapon you will choose is your defense weapon. This should be a combat type weapon capable of shooting long range. The caliber of these types of weapons is generally .223, 308, or 7.62 by 39. They should be built well and will last for many years. Oh, did I fail to mention that they are probably the costliest of all your weapons you will have in your collection. Remember, you life may be at stake so don’t go cheap on this self defense weapon. Likely you will find the best choice of the three will be the 308 because of its range, accuracy, and combined stopping power.

 

Your sidearm or hand gun will be pistol of any good quality. The caliber in this case is immaterial. It is important that you realize you should never rely upon either your hand gun or your hunting rifle to take the place of your defense weapon. These simply do not have the needed range which you would find in the combat class weapons. Another important fact concerning your selected hunting rifle is that they are not built for rapid fire use which would be required of combat arms.

 

In addition to your usual weapons it would not hurt to have a good quality compound bow with an abundance of arrows.  Here you are out in the middle of nowhere along with lots of other people who’s only goal is to survive at all costs. They hear a weapon go off and instantly think food is available nearby. If you want to maintain a low profile you should consider the use of a bow and arrow for hunting your food. Granted a bow is no match for a .308 but we are not looking at self defense here but rather hunting for food.

 

There you have a few points to ponder concerning weapons and survival. Ultimately you will have to make your own decision as to which weapon you care to use. Just do your homework properly and you should come up with a happy medium.
