Firearm prep help
I am in need of some advice. I am looking for some some suggestions at 2 different budget levels on what I should buy to solidify my weapons for home and person protection.
The main scenario I am looking to prepare for is WROL (without rule of law) in protection need as follows:
- bug in
- protect home and family from looters, hooligans,
- economic/currency collapse or hyperinflation
- extended power outage
NOTE: I will have 3 people that could be armed in a shtf scenario
What I have already:
Make. Model. Cal. Rounds other info
Marlin 336 lever 30-30. 70 w/cheap 3-9x40 scope, sling tube 6+1
Rem "model 34" bolt 22lr. 2500hv . Tube fed, iron sights, 14+1
Rem. 1100 pump. 12ga. 450 (7.5) Knoxx stock, 18.5 barrel, iron sts, sling, 7+1
Moss 183kb. Bolt. 410ga. 50 Long barrel w/choke, iron shts, 4+1
Rohm RG38. Revlr 38 spc 100fmj,20 hp. holster
My prep budget is really tight to supplement my arms...here is what I think I need:
+1 rifle semi-auto + X ammo, thinking 22lr rem 597 w/4 30 rnd clips?
Maybe a handgun semi-auto + X ammo, thinking an inexpensive 9MM w/2 clips?
- more ammo? 30-30? ~100 rnds @ $120, more 410? ~100 @ $40 and 38 spc? ~100 LRN/TMJ @ $50?
Budget 1: $500-$600
- rifle only?
- must consider cost of ammo
- how much ammo to last 12 months
Budget 2: I could stretch to $800-$900 if there would be a marked gain in protection value
- rifle only or rifle + handgun?
Finally I can spend ~60/mo on more ammo until shtf
but what kind and cal?
Thank you all so much in advance!
