Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,
|Several Rifles for sale at a gun show (ca 2015)|
For most families, you need two firearms, a handgun and a rifle. The handgun, either a revolver or a pistol, is used to protect your family, while the rifle is used to protect the country.
Some people are going to want another option, the shotgun.
Now, .. Don't get me wrong. I think a shotgun is a poor, a very poor, choice as a weapon.
A shotgun is long, so it's tough to conceal. It has a strong recoil, so it's tough for everyone in the family to use. The shotgun has limited magazine capacity, so you have to reload it, a lot.
