Okay here is the break down.
I have been planning on getting taxes back and buying an ak47. Then I started really thinking about things recently and thought "I don't have a good 22". Here recently my wife and i got serious about prepping but the bad thing is we don't have the budget to do so as we want but a little at a time we are getting there. But just like our diet its a lifestyle not a achievement. I know in a survival type situation of any kind a 22 will be invaluable. Here is my though process. I have a nice ar. I have a sks tricked out a little. I have 2 Remington 870's. And several pistols and hunting rifles and other shotguns. It's only my wife, myself, and our 2 year old son. I have enough "battle rifles" for us and few extras. I have a decent stock of ammo. I figure instead of buying yet another rifle to feed and buy mags and what not for I could buy a ruger 10-22 and spend the other $250 on preps. I don't have a good 22 and I know I need one and even just to bring my son up on one. I wanted an ak47 because he might not be able to ever get one with our wonderful government and I want him to have an upper hand and collectables. My questions are: 1) is this the smart move or go with the AK?? 2) what preps should i buy with that $250? More food and water? I don't have a lot now at all. Probably a month worth maybe less. Sorry for the long intro. Please help!!!??
