4 Guns Every Prepper Needs, And One Every Prepper Wants

Due to ignorant people voting Democrat many of these guns are illegally outlawed in New York City, Chicago, California, etc … Check your local laws to see if they can be legally owned. I can’t believe I have to even write that.

Glock 21

What in the world is this guy thinking recommending a Glock 21? Well I’m not a big fan of glocks (I love my Ruger .45) but this is a gun commonly carried by police and many, many others. The parts are and will be widely available, clips are readily available and the same for ammunition.

Pros:
– Serious stopping power
– At medium ranges you can spray a large target almost guaranting that serious damage will be done
– Easy to get a hold of the ammunition
– Parts are readily and widely available
– High capacity clips are available
– Corrosion resistant
– Non glare finish
– Semi Automatic

Cons:
– Cheap ammo can jam this gun
– Serious kick
– Rapid fire is not really possible due to the kick
– Can be hard to cock back

12 Gauge Shotgun

This is one of the most popular guns in America. It comes in two styles pump and semi-auto. The Remington Model 870 is the highest selling model today. It’s simple and very reliable.

Pros:
– The sound of chambering a clip is usually enough to scare off the average person cause they know the kind of damage it can do to ones body.
– At medium ranges you can spray a large target almost guaranting that serious damage will be done
– Rapid fire at ease
– Compared to most handguns or rifles the shotgun offers some serious stopping power

Cons:
– Reloading is generally a slow process and if you were just woken up it may be clumbersome
– Regular steel (most common) is prone to corrosion so go with a stainless steel model
– You must shoot with precision and know your target cause it causes a lot of damage (Apartment dwellers and those with a family should consider a different weapon)
– Limited range when compared to almost any rifle

.22 Calibre Rifle

First, don’t fall for the whole ‘a 22 can’t kill someone’ BS, a .22 rifle is very deadly when properly used, so treat it as such. The Marlin Model 60 is the world’s most popular .22 rifle.

1

Pros:
– The mist common rifle so ammunition and parts will always be easily accessible
– Ammunition is cheap and plentify
– Quiet and easy to suppress
– Generally a light weapon that is easy to carry
– Wide range of abilities
– Extremely afordable
– Recoil is nonexistent
– Large amount of ammo can be stored in a small area
– Decent range of 50 or more yards

– Ideal for killing and small game

Cons:
– Not the best choice for killing large game
– Less powerful than say a 12 Gauge Shotgun
– Short range when compared to most high powered rifles
– Less lead, ammunition is small

AK-47 or AR-15 Rifle

Don’t forget the ultimate bug out bag gun, the Kel-Tec SU-16. MSRP is $770 and it isn’t as accurate as an AK-47 but its foldable stock makes it easy to conceal and transport.

  1. I just came across your site. I loved the article on five emergency lights. Very good! But I must say that this article on guns was a little disappointing.

    First, any gun guy/gal is going to get annoyed and assume you don’t know what you are talking about when you start talking about clips.
    When talking about the Glock you say: “clips are readily available” and “High capacity clips are available”. It’s a magazine, not a clip.
    Personally I would have recommended a Glock in 9mm. (Model 17 or 19). Ammo is more readily available, and it has less recoil so it’s easier to learn to shoot accuractely.

    In talking about the Glock and the shotgun you say: “At medium ranges you can spray a large target almost guaranting that serious damage will be done”. That is known as spray and pray. It is NOT a good technique. No matter what weapon you choose, you should learn to shoot it accurately. There is an adage that says “Beware of the man who only owns one gun. He likely knows how to use it.” Learn to use all your weapons safely and accurately.

    In discussing the 12 guage you say: “The sound of chambering a clip is usually enough to scare off the average person”. Again, that word clip. It should say “the sound of racking the slide”. You are correct in that it is distinctive and says go away in any language.
    You also said: “Regular steel (most common) is prone to corrosion so go with a stainless steel model” I am only aware of one stainless steel shotgun, and it’s an over/under. You picture is of a chrome plated model, which is readily avaialble and what I would recommend.

    You recommend the Marlin Model 60, which is an awesome rifle, but your picture is of a Marlin Model 39. The Model 60 is a semiautomatic, the Model 39 is a lever action.

    AK-47 or AR-15 – no pro’s or con’s list needed. While some may argue that, you pretty well summed it up. Get a good semiauto and learn how to use it.

    You have some great recommendations, and I agree with them (except for 9mm vs .45 ACP), but a Glock, a 12 guage, a .22 long rifle and a modern sporting rifle are all good choices and would serve one well in a crisis situation.
