Unless you plan on staying in one place all the time, then stockpiling loads of ammo isnt reasonable. You cant carry loads and loads of ammo plus water and other supplies....
Thanks for the insult tho, video games NOT in mind, ive done my fair share of combat USMC. And given situations where you are moving around a lot and scavenging , you are bound to come across places where you do find ammo.
And given you could be in combat situations with people fighting for resources AND food, your more likely to come across ammo that is more common.
Take my advice or not......in the end the decisions are all up to personal preference
But dont insult everyone by assuming they are 16 year old kids who play too much call of duty.
Myself I carry my side arm .40 s and w and an armalite AR-10

Ammos will become rare... If # hits the fan for long term I'm counting on a bow/katana and throwing knife and ambushing navaho style when its dark. Although a roman gladius or kukri are to be fearful tools... no reload, no jam, silent and always ready to go no matter the weather/condition... And I rarely miss with a throwing knife from 5-25ish feet away and there's always plenty of scrap metal to do makeshift throwing knives, spikes, axes...
I don't plan on staying around densely populated areas neither when food/water will become rare its going to be a bloodbath...
I would bring this because it can hit its targets at long range and the perp woulden't see it comming. www.youtube.com...

Powerful, reliable, accurate. And the bolt action is smooth enough once your hand gets used to it. You'll bruise your palm if you fire off too many rounds too fast, but quite frankly it should hurt a little bit to use a weapon.
Whether you're walking into the bush, fighting off the zombie apocalypse, or rebelling against your corporate overlords, this is the firearm.
I've tried a few different rifles, but nothing provides the same raw power and satisfaction while still being comofrtable and familiar to the marksman's hand.edit on 11-11-2010 by RedBird because: (no reason given)
