Three more Choices for the Home Defensive Firearm
There seem to be nearly as many weapons choices out there as there are people. Deciding which one is right for you and your purposes is a bit of a challenge. Deciding on a gun for home defense is no different.
It’s true that any gun beats no gun when you really need one. Yet some may be better, in general, than others.
Vicki C. wrote a good article over at the Survivalist Blog – about three more good options to consider. Please read her analysis and do the consideration.
“Regardless of the scenario, we are closer and closer every day and the only ones who will survive are the ones who know how to behave in an SHTF situation. So, will you be ready to protect yourself and your family when general panic settles in? Will you be prepared to face the end of days and survive to tell the story?
It all depends on how well-prepared prepared you’ll be with the basics like food, water, shelter, clothing, and last but not least, weapons. While most of us know about putting together a BOB and how to find shelter in the wilderness (or how to prepare a secluded one), the topic of weapons is a touchy one. Firearms are well-regulated in the US and it gets more and more difficult to protect yourself in case of a doomsday scenario.
Still, there is time to get things back on track, and today I’ll tell you about the top 3 tactical weapons that should be part of your arsenal when SHTF. But first, let me tell you why you need more than one firearm.”
You may (will) need more than one weapon for proper defense. Here are Vicki’s recommendations de jure:
The Kel-Tec SUB-2000 Carbine Rifle
Chambered for either 9mm or .40 cal, this carbine makes an ideal multi-purpose arm.
The design is loaded with options to facilitate comfort, ease of operation, and efficiency.
Strongly consider this light model.
The IWI Tavor XB95 Semiautomatic Tactical Rifle
Features the convenience of a shorter barrel with the accuracy of a longer gun. It’s well made with many options for use. It looks cool too.
The Ruger Mini-14 Tactical 300 AAC Blackout
An old standby. It’s an alternative to the AR and can accommodate a .30 cal round – with a 20-round magazine. And it can be loaded with options.
This design is tried and true.
Perrin would pick this one from the three if only one was allowable.
I notice that she left off any shotguns. Those just might make the very best home defense gun, period. Still, these are just 3 of 3,000 or so options. Make your own choice based on your own reasons.
I think these are all good choices and will (would) serve the homeowner well. Please consider your needs and decide accordingly. Just make sure you decide on something. Putting off the defense until to tomorrow is no defense for today.
