I decided to tell you what my “dream” survival gun battery would consist of. Now, I want to start by stating that I DO NOT HAVE many of these items. I don’t even have a few of them. But, I can dream, can’t I?
My first choice would be two M1A/M14 assault rifles in .308/7.6251 NATO caliber. I would prefer that these be stainless steel. Along with these two rifles, I would like to have 10,000 rounds of ammo.
I would also desire two M4s or AR15s in .223/5.56. Again stainless, along with 10,000 rounds of ammo.
I want 2 Ruger 10/22s in stainless steel. Inasmuch as I want handguns in this caliber, I would want at least 50,000 rounds of ammo.
Two good pump shotguns--Mossberg or Remington, preferably. I could also go with some other makes as long as they are quality. I would want 5,000 rounds of bird shot in varying sizes and 500 rounds of buck shot in different sizes.
I really desire two SIG handguns in .45 ACP caliber. And, 2 SIG handguns in 9MM Luger. These would be my tactical choices. I would desire 5,000 rounds of each caliber.
For working handguns I would like 2 Ruger .44 magnum and 2 .357/.38 Special revolvers. 2,000 rounds of ammo for each caliber.
I would like two or more each of .22 revolvers and semi auto hand guns.
For all of these weapons I would want a complete set of spare parts. If tshtf, you won’t be able to run to the store to get extras for anything you own. It is also desirable to obtain as many extra high capacity magazines as you can afford. Also, accessories such as holsters, carrying cases, slings, cleaning equipment and tools for repair work.
The reason I want 2 of each is due to the old saying that “one is none and two is one.” If I could afford to buy all of this equipment, I would bury that biggest part of it in caches scattered around over an area of public land separated by several miles each. Someone might find one but, they might miss the others. And, even if it took all day to walk from one to another, at least you could find some of them still intact.
Again, this is my “wish list”, but, “if wishes were fishes.....”
What is yours?
