Do you know which types of guns you need for the end of days? Read on and check out the guns that will help you come out alive when doomsday comes! You can stock up your armory, basement, or bunker with all types of rifles and handguns, but there’s no guarantee all of them are going to keep you alive.
Sure, you’ll have all of the assault rifles or the handguns, but how effective are they in certain conditions, say, close quarters? In this article, I am going to show you the different types of guns that will help you when doomsday comes (or when SHTF) and explain the reason why you need to have them. Check them out and choose the right one for you.
Types of Guns That Will Save You On Reckoning Day
The Rifles – For Perimeter And Versatile Protection
Rifles are good for two reasons: perimeter and versatile protection. I am going to divide them into two categories: the assault rifles and the long range rifles. Assault rifles are able to dish out hundreds of bullets per second, so it’s good for crowd control. Meanwhile, long range rifles are intended for perimeter security. Those scopes and bullets can do some real damage from afar. Below is a short list of rifles with staggering firepower.
The AK 47 is one of the most popular assault rifles in the world, together with the AR-15. This rifle is used by military units all over the world and is known for its durability. One can basically expose the rifle in extreme conditions and it would still fire. Talk about being reliable.
Ruger 10/22 Rifle
The Ruger 10/22 is the king of .22 long range rifles–at least on my list, that is. The reason why it’s just so good to have around is that it’s good for securing small and medium-sized game, and it’s got quite the range in it too. It’s also really quiet, so prey will never know what hit them.
Bushmaster Carbon 15 M4 Carbine
The Bushmaster Carbon 15 M4 Carbine is small, light, and very durable. This assault rifle is made in the tradition of AR-15 rifles combined with modern features, like the space-age Carbon 15 composite molded receivers.
Henry Arms AR-7
If you want to talk about survival rifles, the Henry Arms AR-7 long rifle is the real deal. It may not be as powerful as the other rifles nor is it as capacious as the Ruger or M4, but the AR-7 takes the cake for its convenience. You can pack the barrel, magazines, and receivers inside its water-tight stock and carry it around with you. Assembling the rifle is as easy as assembling LEGOs.

The Handguns – For Concealment And Convenient Carry
Handguns are, without a doubt, the most convenient weapons any doomsday prepper should have in their arsenal. Handguns come in different sizes, but they’re usually small enough to carry around in a bag or purse. You can even holster it around your waist. Check out this short list of the best handguns that can be extremely reliable when SHTF.
This may look tiny, but this “small” pistol right here fires a .45 caliber bullet. It packs a punch, so to speak. It’s a really slim pistol, making it great for concealment and weighs 27 ounces with a full mag of 6.
Now if you want something bigger, then the Glock 17 is the Glock 36’s big brother. Along with the Sig Sauer, it’s a popular choice for handguns amongst police officers and members of law enforcement agencies. The weight is slightly heavier than the 36, but it’s designed to be heavy to manage the recoil. This makes it one of the most accurate pistols in the market.
Sig Sauer P226
This is probably my favorite handgun for a lot of reasons. First, this is the gun carried by police and other members of law enforcement, so you know it’s got some power despite its size. It’s compact and very light, weighing around 34 ounces with a full mag. On top of that, it retails for $900. You are getting your money’s worth for this handgun.
- Type: Range Bag
- Color: Black
- Silver Lettering
The firearms in this list are all powerful enough to drive attackers away and keep them off of your tracks. Whether you prefer a rifle or a handgun as your primary firearm of choice, make the right decision by picking something you’re most comfortable with. This gives you a better chance of protecting yourself and your family when SHTF.
