last minute thoughts on the subject bring me back.
regarding the SKS someone mentioned, definitely worth looking into. i've not handled one but my mate wants that one, next.
whomever suggested both the 30-30 and 30-06, great rifles, have shot both but the KelTec still wows in comparison.
regarding Her body size/type ... personal disclosure ... am less than 100lbs soaking wet, barely stand 5ft tall and both the Kel Tec and shotgun are
my favs ... am getting used to the Storm but it does take a few practice rounds to really get a comfortable feel. The KelTec works well and didn't
get as hot as i thought it would shooting a 30rnd clip.
i like The Judge alot but it is a bit much, big kick, heavy and i'm not 'comfortable' shooting it, yet.
lastly, regarding the 'mindset' ... this is a very important ingredient.
shooting paper targets, cans and whatnot is one thing ... shooting any soft target / flesh, entirely different (been there)
one thing to consider about SHTF scenarios, ppl won't be 'knocking' at your door (at any hour) and should you fall, what then ??
One of our considerations has been what the opponent is likely shooting and if we're lucky, we can pick theirs up when they fall. (especially if ammo
common between us)
i would NOT stick to a single caliber variety but that's me.
beyond the obvious, practice, practice and practice some more ... i never expected a need to use mine before SHTF, but, sure am glad i was ready
(mind, skill, ability) when the time presented itself. One shot, not fatal but got the job done ... why waste the ammo?
