    Trapping is the best.
    Helpful tip, just in case.
    Hopefully, it'll never get that bad. Don't know anything about trapping. Can fish, a little.

    The thing about the area where I live is you can plink an animal for food any day of the week. But you can't be too choosey, because the easy prey is mostly raccoons, sandhill cranes, squirrels, etc. We do have wild turkeys, though, and feral hogs. If you want illegal food, there are plenty of alligators, which are very easy to kill, and gopher tortoises and things. I wouldn't care to kill any of these, legal or illegal, but if the world falls apart for a while...

    I guess a handgun. I don't know. Although my neighbor has a long gun that I like. We haven't had much trouble but our balconies overlook the whole block.

Love the M.Nagant, fantastic rifle, not a fan of the AK, more prefer the G3, FAMAS, or FAL. I own a baby eagle .40 and I absolutely LOVE that gun, it sounds like a .40, hits like a .40, but kicks like a .22, very accurate and repositioning for a second shot is a breeze.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    For home defense, a good "Beginner gun" is the Remington 870 12 gauge pump shotgun. Buy shells in that 12 gauge rating that are 00 or 0 in the shot-number, known as "buckshot". As an added advantage, you can hunt game of varying sizes with it tolerably well.

    If you want a handgun, a good beginner handgun would be a .38 revolver. Smith and Wesson is good. Ruger is okay, and considerably cheaper. Don't get a snubbie unless you're planning to do the concealed carry thing, which is fine but I don't get that impression from what you're saying.

    A more serious handgun would be the Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm, semi-automatic pistol. This is the weapon that most of the pro's are going to these days.

    I'm getting my C&R soon, just finished the paperwork last night, need to drop it in the mail.
    Nagants are pretty, cheap and with plenty of inexpensive ammo.
    Looking at maybe adding a Mauser and a K31, the K31 is the most accurate of the 3.

    I like FAL's too but I've been a fan of the AK for a long time and never got one.
    That time is coming, I've also seen some reproduction semi auto WW2 guns that are bad ass.


    My two favorite, more obscure brands of handguns are CZ and Jericho(Baby Eagles).
    Solid construction at a fair price.

    Hell yeah. I have to protect myself from all those neo-cons out there. Haven't seen any other threats around my spread in ages.

    CZ is hardly obscure-its the most widely distributed 9MM in the world-overtook the Hi Power a while back and has been copied by numerous sources including Tanfolio (EAA/ TZ-75) Swiss (AT-84) and Turkey (The Armalite for example) among others. I shot for EAA using their "Witness" in Open IPSC (9X21)

    Great guns. great steel. My favorite is a decock only version-the CZ75Police, I also have (among several 9mm) a Kadet in 22.

    at one time people would pay 1000 bucks for one during the Iron curtain era. Then people wouldn't buy them because they were "too cheap" (325 or so).

    agree but I recommend a Mossberg over the remington. Why? the safety is far better positioned on the mossberg

    the remington has a better finish but the durability is about the same and the mossberg is cheaper.

    Re: Do you own or someone in your household own a firearm?

    This discussion will be useful when (or if) I purchase a firearm for the first time.

    Thanks guys.

    In terms of the average person, if it isn't a Glock most people don't have a clue.

    They have CZ 9mm makorovs for sale for $180-220 right now, used but in great condition.
    Also have some CZ 7.62x25's running about $180 unissued, if I'm not mistaken.
