I was sitting around thinking the other day about the firearms I own. Perhaps more specifically, what calibers would serve me the best if things ran amuck, and I only had four calibers to choose from. After thinking I came up with this:
.22 for plinking or hunting small game.
.38 self defence or medium size game.
.45 for self defence
12ga for self defence and large animals. (knock down a cow for food or personal pretection).
I live within 10 miles of 500+ tons of nerve gas; VX and GB. It is a known fact that should a leak occure that warrented evacuation, it would be every family for them selves. The chance of this happening is really pretty remote but the possibility does exist nonetheless which would bring a host of problems and issues. Primarly survival.
If you consider the current financial climate - anything could happen. With that being said, I wonder if anyone has considered what is caliber of firearms and quantity they would consider indispensable when the crap really hits the fan.
I am sure there are hundreds of verations on this but this is my choice based on where I live, what could possibly happen and a method to survive.
