You can stock up your armory, basement, or bunker with all types of guns, 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, like say close quarters?

In this article, I am going to show to 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.

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.

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.

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 at 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 like 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, purse, or even holster it around your waist. Check out this short list of the best handguns that can be extremely reliable when SHTF.

Glock 36

This may look small, 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.

Glock 17

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.

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.
