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.

glock-21Pros:
- 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.

Remington_Marine_MagPros:
- 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.

22-riflePros:
- 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
- Available in every type of configuration
- 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

AR-15Don’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.

    While I appreciate the information, I need to correct a fews things: Its not a clip its a magazine. Spraying a target should never be a goal of using a firearm. A glock 21 chambered in .45 acp does not have a lot of recoil, fire one then fire a glock 20 chambered in .40 sw and tell me which one kicks more. Rapid fire is possible, its a very manageable platform. Shotgun, its a chambering a round not clip. If you have one for self/home defense, it should be loaded and ready to go. Shotgun ammo ranges greatly from birdshot to slugs. Birdshot won’t penetrate much sheet wall,, while a slug will probably run through 5-8 sheets of drywall. And that is not an AK47 and its a 100 MAGAZINE. A keltec su16 is just as accurate if not more than an ak47. 5.56 is a flatter/more accurate round thant 7.62×39

    • The 4 gun must have guns… is written by a novice in the gun world..

      I like the Ak-47 or Ak 74 both good rifles in what we would like to use them for.

      Not sure why you would “spray anything ” suppressive fire is really something that’s only going to be needed if you have a teamwork going.
