Critique my arsenal please!
Hi everybody. I'm Max and from Missouri where gun culture is alive and strong!
I'm working on finishing my arsenal soon as I start work on some food gathering and alternative energy sources (or a gennie.) but first I need advice on my favorite topic: guns!
So far I have:
This is my EDC and primary sidearm, I'd say. It's in .40 S&W but I have a barrel kit so it can fire 9mm as well. I have it loaded with Remington Golden Saber or Hornady Critical Defense rounds and I have 4 13-round magazines. I'd say I have between 850-950 rounds of .40 stored for it, mostly a split between the two ammo types above with 100 rounds of good ol' FMJ. I've put somewhere near 2200 rounds through this thing and have never had a jam. I love this pistol! My 9mm stockpile is 250 or so rounds, mostly Speer Gold Dot.
Six-shot .357 Magnum, 3" barrel and blued steel. I've put around 500 rounds through it (it's new) and it's my primary defensive handgun if for some reason I don't have my Glock. (I live alone in a house with very thick walls, so over-penetration isn't as big of a problem for me.) Hornady Critical Defense rounds and a bit of FMJ, maybe 500 rounds total. This thing will knock somebody down, I imagine. I've also got 3 speed loaders.
Mossberg AR-15. I have a holographic sight with backup "flip-down" iron sights, a better trigger job and five 30-round magazines. The free-floating barrel makes this gun incredibly accurate. I've probably shot 1000 rounds with it with few issues and I would say I have between 1950-2050 rounds for it in my garage. (Packed up and ready to GTFO.)
Mossberg 500, black, 3" barrel, adjustable stock, pistol grip, pump-action with an 8 round capacity and a 19" barrel. I have it loaded with Hornady TAP 12 gauge, first #4 then four 00 buck and three slugs. I honestly have shot this gun in a financially irresponsible manner, maybe 1100 shells. I think I have around 250 spare shells of various types.
So what do you all think? What should I add or change? Should I stockpile more ammo of one or more types? Are these guns practical and effect for a SHTF scenario in which I'd have to defend my home? (I have the resources and location for fortify it pretty heavily and I live next to a fair-sized forest, so it's sort of isolated.)
