Glock 17 9mm
Handguns give you the element of surprise and convenient protection. Perhaps the most useful handgun to have in preparation for the SHTF is the Glock 17. It weighs in at 32 ounces with a full magazine of 17 rounds. The heavier overall weight means reduced recoil, making this handgun a great choice for new shooters.
Remington touts their 700 model as the most versatile line of rifles on the market. Also, perimeter defense means keeping the bad guys away from your people. The “three ring” bolt is a virtually unchanged design from the 70s and claims to offer the most strength and support to larger caliber cartridges. It does tend to provide 700 users with exceptional accuracy out of the box.
