Emergency prepardness rifles for your family? What do you have planned?
I've been thinking a lot about getting more prepared for emergencies recently. Most of my emphasis going on food and water storage/preparation. However I do feel the need to pick up an extra rifle to keep on hand for my wife. I'm very fond of the AR-15 platform given my familiarity with the M16/M4, I have a DD 14.5" which is my go to gun. The question I have is what kind of rifles do you have planned for your family to use should it become necessary? Would you drop $1000 on an AR build or go with a cheaper alternative? I like the idea of parts and ammunition interchangeability, but am trying to weight the cost against other alternatives.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts!
