Recently I was talking with another local prepper the other day. We were discussing the practicallity(sp?) of a select-fire firearm (Uzi, AK, M16,MP5,Thompson,ect) or a light machinegun (M-60, BAR, BREN GUN, LEWIS GUN) in a survival situation. ***Clearly all these weapons are high-end and expensive. AND require a tax stamp to own(where legal) after all the paperwork is approved*** The idea of fending off a mob of would-be attackers/pillagers with a said selectfire gun or a M-60 may sound like a cool idea. BUT in a real-world scenario with a limited amount of available ammo is not really logical. Although it may have a limited psych value, the longterm effects (if any) aren't really justified. My personal opinion(and goal for next year) is to invest in some suppressors for one of my 1911s, a 10/22, and a AR-15. That's around $3600.00 for the tax stamps and suppressors. And personally, I find SBR,AOW, and SBS a waste of time and money!! What do you guys think?
