    Think "barter". Parts and ability trade well.

    Get your manual out & learn to detail strip it.

    What are the key replacement parts for, let's say, 1911's and AR's since they are probably very common. Also, realize that with SHTF you can expect that there will be no internet, or it will be heavily regulated. Recognize that google is already censoring, the govt is watch sites and ISP's, and that your provider is now required to turn you in if they are told to. Therefore, getting information and parts online will be difficult. It is not improbable that even talking about it will get you watched...Legal parts should be available for a while, unless we go through a UK or Australia style forced turn in. Not possible? It started in Ca. already and could easily move to other areas despite what the SCOTUS rules. With a majority democratic govt, it's entirely possible the landscape will be very different from what we are all living now.

    What it is ain't exactly clear

    Would take a while to wear out any gun, youd have to be shooting alot.

    Id be stocking up on Ammo, and mabey buying a few more guns to stash away. That way if they take one away you've got some spare guns lying around rather than spare parts.
    I'm kind of like you on this one. I reload for all of my guns, and have several hand guns in each of several calibers. If one broke, and I needed to, I could trade it off to someone who could fix it for his/her own use. I have a lot of guns, and a lot of ammo. Shoot till one breaks, pick up another!
    Y'all be safe now, ya hear!
