Most (but not all) of us here are firearm collectors or we own guns that are for fun not just tools.
This poll is in regards to preppers, not collecting. (Even though collecting is cool too).
Do you diversify your caliber/firearms or do you stick to a few and stack them deep as possible?
If both, whats your general rule of thumb or personal beliefs on this?
There are two main perspectives on this and neither one is necessarily wrong. The first being:
• Diversifying your collection, so you can have firearms/ammo for any ammo/fireams you might come across.
• Stack it deep usually means you dont believe scrounging for ammo is a thing and you dont believe ammo will be a common bartering item. So you only have what youve stocked up and availability generally dosnt mean much.
I generally have been a “stack it deep” type of guy. I like .22 lr, 5.56 and 1 handgun caliber. I usually keep at least 2k each of these calibers.
Although , I do think availability and scrounging will be a thing. I dont think “battlefield pick ups” will be like COD and finding ammo will not be easy or something to rely on so I stack deep.
Who knows , my mind can be changed. I really have to fight with myself not to buy a 7.62x39 AK. The prepper side of me tells the gun nut side no and so on and so forth.
- Diversity is the spice of life
- Stack it deep and keep it simple
