4 Guns Every Prepper Needs, And One Every Prepper Wants

Due to ignorant people voting Democrat many of these guns are illegally outlawed in New York City, Chicago, California, etc … Check your local laws to see if they can be legally owned. I can’t believe I have to even write that.


”No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” – Thomas Jefferson papers

Glock 21

What in the world is this guy thinking recommending a Glock 21? Well I’m not a big fan of glocks (I love my Ruger .45) but this is a gun commonly carried by police and many, many others. The parts are and will be widely available, clips are readily available and the same for ammunition.


– Serious stopping power
– At medium ranges you can spray a large target almost guaranting that serious damage will be done
– Easy to get a hold of the ammunition
– Parts are readily and widely available
– High capacity clips are available
– Corrosion resistant
– Non glare finish
– Semi Automatic

– Cheap ammo can jam this gun
– Serious kick
– Rapid fire is not really possible due to the kick
– Can be hard to cock back


12 Gauge Shotgun

This is one of the most popular guns in America. It comes in two styles pump and semi-auto. The Remington Model 870 is the highest selling model today. It’s simple and very reliable.


– The sound of chambering a clip is usually enough to scare off the average person cause they know the kind of damage it can do to ones body.
– At medium ranges you can spray a large target almost guaranting that serious damage will be done
– Rapid fire at ease
– Compared to most handguns or rifles the shotgun offers some serious stopping power

– Reloading is generally a slow process and if you were just woken up it may be clumbersome
– Regular steel (most common) is prone to corrosion so go with a stainless steel model
– You must shoot with precision and know your target cause it causes a lot of damage (Apartment dwellers and those with a family should consider a different weapon)
– Limited range when compared to almost any rifle

.22 Calibre Rifle

First, don’t fall for the whole ‘a 22 can’t kill someone’ BS, a .22 rifle is very deadly when properly used, so treat it as such. The Marlin Model 60 is the world’s most popular .22 rifle.

– Less powerful than say a 12 Gauge Shotgun
– Short range when compared to most high powered rifles
– Less lead, ammunition is small

AK-47 or AR-15 Rifle









Don’t forget the ultimate bug out bag gun, the Kel-Tec SU-16. MSRP is $770 and it isn’t as accurate as an AK-47 but its foldable stock makes it easy to conceal and transport.

  1. A note about the Kel Tec SU 16C. It’s at least as accurate as an AR, more accurate than an AK. Features like the built in bi-pod enhance accuracy, as does a scope. But the main way to improve accuracy is to go out and shoot the thing–a lot.

  2. my first rifle was kel tec su16 some cons and pros about them
    you can use AR15 MAGS
    light weight
    jams when little dirty
    barrel is very thin
    jams when barrel gets hot
    only use clean ammo if you don’t want to clean your gun a lot
