bolt action vs semi for SHTF?
the bolt action rifle verses the semi auto for SHTF?
everybody these days and even his brother has a semi rifle for the SHTF , zombie invasion, disaster prep kit.
i do recall how well the m40 and m24 did in the shit hole. the bolt action has some serious things going for it.
simplicity, easy to service, rugged, easy to sight in, very accurate, some of the new hunting/scout rifles are very quick handling and not expensive.
the down side to them is slow rate of fire and slow to reload. and not totally lefty friendly.
these rate of fire does conserve ammo and it teaches you to shoot properly.
back when i was a kid i had a single shot bolt action .22 , i downed many a tree rat with it. ONE shot cause that was the best it could do.
today when kids go hunting it sounds like their defending "fire-base alpha" from being overrun by tango. they shoot 500 rounds and bring back two or three bullet riddled tree rats!
with ammo expensive, politically incorrect, and possibly getting very short in supply the bolt is looking better to fill the role.
a bolt, a revolver and a pump action splattergun could fill most needs except for the lone gunman defending fire-base gloria. and even then i wouldn't want to intrude on a guy with a bolt gun that really knew his shit.
some places where the PC police are active these guns are still considered 'sporting' for now anyway.
i don't consider this guy to be under-gunned except in the most off the wall situations.
is the bolt action scoped rifle good enough to rival the semi for SHTF/bugout?
and you won't need a bizillion rounds of ammo for it either!
For SHTF,,,,a bolt IMO, you're not going to be able to carry much ammo any ways, plus don't want to give away your position by putting to many rounds downrange any how,,go for accuracy first. 1 shot 1 kill,,, shoot and move. That's how it's done.
you are going to need both plus a good shotgun and handgun and don't forget that freshwater/saltwater fishing pole
oh we just hit the 16 trllion mark yesterday more debt than europe combined, a load of 150 k on each family in america
its coming regardless who wins only it will come faster/harder if hussien wins
I got AKMs and a L1A1 for for keeping heads down.Ruger M77 in 30/06 for long shots.:)
I can get more done with a good bolt gun than 3 average guys with semis.
High value target selection is key.
:lolup: Yup, that's the way she's done!! I want Tanvil in my camp.
a suppressor is actually more valuable no matter which weapon you use....
once you buy/build one you'll say wow this is way more usable than i thought.
"today when kids go hunting it sounds like their defending "fire-base alpha" from being overrun by tango. they shoot 500 rounds and bring back two or three bullet riddled tree rats!" :lol::lol::lol:
What tanvil said..
Full auto is fun, if the Govt. is paying for the ammo..
Oh it has its place, I cede that point.. But..
If you really want to get the job done..
Do like the best sniper ever "White Death" Finn did, during WWII did..
700 shots, 700 confirmed kills.. Bolt action..
Ah maybe 701 shots. :)
Oh God that gave me a good laugh j4..
Some Nam stories when me and you sit down and have a beer..
One tree branch breaks.. Everybody and their brother goes full auto..
One million dollars $$ in uncle sugars money later..
Only thing hurt is tree tops.. :)
be prepared get both and a good shootgun. mine remington 3006 and 870 and semi is a sks yugo tricked out.
bolt action is reliable, semi is fast and reliable ( ak....cough cough)
