Crazy how people suggest AKs and ARs for a topic that asking for defense on a BUDGET.
Defending yourslef meaning having a shotgun, aim in general direction and pull the trigger. No need 2000 dollars scopes, 200 dollars bipods, 1000
dollars .308 or Lapua bolt-actions.
Just get a Wallmart Rem 870 express 12 ga. with some buckshots and slugs. You dont even need a scope for that, super simple, super basic.
Mine just have a one-point sling on it for handsfree carrying. No need fancy scopes, camo paints, telescoping tactical stocks.
When I see people's so-called survival weapons, I laughed, 'cause most of the time they will pulled out this gun that is basically a fashion macho
statement. Night vision scope, mil-spec rails, I mean, unless you are going to attack a village, those things will just slow you down.
A perfect HD/SD weapon is a stripped down, legal, (longer than 18" barrell) shotgun that's NO-NONSENSE BUSINESS ONLY TOOL. Not a dressed-up hooker
of a weapon thats all dressed up but got no where to go.
