Interesting 5-gun pick, video

Not entirely sure where to post this, so please relocate as required.

Although some may find this video a bit strange and paranoid, I cannot ague with the content. This is just one shop's opinion on a selection of a five gun battery but they do bring out some good points. ...

Found it interesting what they had to say about the Mosin Nagant and Ruger 10/22 .. .....

Be Safe !!!

They are asking for SERIOUS commitment for the

buyers to practice, here.

If you really want a good look at what to have for survival, find an old 1960's Herter's catalog and see what was recommended back then. really hasn;t change.

For a sidearm if you haven't owned, shoot before, get good revovler simple to use and maintain.
shotgun: Use what in your house or can handle the recoil
rifle: [smallbore] any good quality .22LR, be it GrandDad's Win 1906, to a Marlin single shot or any lever action.
[largebore] any problems with a 30/30 here? Either in a Win/Marlin lever action, or a Rem Model 788 or Savage 340. The last two are bolt actions, allowing non-flat nose bullets to be use.

For bartering, bricks of .22 can be doled out, per box for other needs.
also, any tobacco products and slat for meat curing will be worth more.

As I own a number of firearms I'm much in favor of a number of guns to suit as many situations as possible.

Hahaha. I think its funny that the exact four guns they presented are the ones I'm investing in.
I told the new me,
"Meet me at the bus station and hold a sign that reads: 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life.'"
But the old me met me with a sign that read: "Welcome back."

I like those guys.

I'd probably replace one of those guns with a compact pistol suitable for every day carry if I did a 5 gun list.
