    Extras,

    I'm conflicted about keeping extra guns. People say you can't hand them out in barter theyll come back and haunt you, but I need people to work for me in a post ShTF world and if I can't provide working people food, shelter and defense then my selection of working people might be dismal. To that end I was thinking of investing in numerous ARs of the M4 type.

    Edit-JPARIZ,what is your opinion on the Heritage single 6 22/22mag?I have two,one being the pearl stub birds head and the other is with the western camo grips and 5 1'2" barrel.I don't know about you,but these are the funnest plinksters i've ever had.I've had one for some time and just recently aquired the other.The older one has been through the mill,and for a cheap single action revolver,has proven to be very dependable and has held up well through the years,my only complaint would be the blueing could be better,but for the price I paid,I can't say anything negative about these.Love throwing mags through them.
    I haven't had a bit of trouble with mine. My only gripe (which isn't much) is the trigger feels a bit thin. Similar to the Colt, single action army. Finish is OK. You can always redo it with Gunkote.
    I don't trust a government that doesn't trust me with a gun.

    What do I want and why? Hmmm, let me see, how about peace on earth and goodwill towards man? Barring that, more guns. I love them all. I guess my next add will be an 1911 or a .308 bolt action.

    Again I've always been intrigued by the design or engineering. Imagine having the responsibility to design a weapon to be used in combat that needs to work EVERY time in almost ANY conditions. I'd find a new job fast.
    Then look at what has been accomplished. The 1911, M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, M14, M16 and the list goes on. I'm easily impressed with people that can do stuff I can't.

    When I joined LE for the first time I carried a 357 Revolver. We had an "old timer" chief of police who we convinced semi auto's were the way to go and moved on to Sig Saur 9mm's. I carried that in federal service as well and still covet the hi cap and accuracy of that gun. I never owned a 1911 until my dad passed away and he left me his WWII side arm. I had fired it for the first time just about 2 years before he died and after I decided I didn't want to use his so I bought one. I liked it but admitted the 45 was a bit much for me so I adopted the 1911 9mm and it instantly became my new favorite - 3 of them were lost in the tragic boating accident in Lake Tahoe As much as I like my Sig it amazes me the 1911 - after a 100 + years - is my favorite. Simple, robust, effective. Its also just a perfect fit.

    1 hand gun
    1 shot gun
    1 hunting rifle (bolt action)
    1 tactical rifle (semi auto)

    And a butt ton of ammo. I would rather have plenty of as few calibres as possible then lots of calibres with only a few rounds of each. But that's just me.

    Obviously right now is not the time, but a few people like to have other calibers around for barter, later on.

    Barrett 50, and at least 1000 rounds. Just because.
