    I know this is an older post but I just found it. I would agree with most of what you post here with one exception. I would prefer to use a shotgun inside an apartment instead of a handgun. I am a retired police officer and have seen cases of a 9mm handgun round penetrating the side of the house it was fired in and then penetrating the sidewall of the house next door embedding itself in the side of a recliner. for that reason a shotgun using buckshot or similar would (to me) be less likely to injure folks in another apartment or the house next door. Just my opinion based on work experiences.

    I carried a Taurus 357 for several years as a duty weapon in the early 90s. I never had any trouble with it. I would not hesitate to pick up another Taurus if I had a chance.

    I have a Diamondback model that shoots real well for me especially with American Eagle 55 grain.

    Glad it is back. I was starting to have withdrawal symptoms.

    Well, I just joined. Truthfully, I haven’t started preparing for when the shtf yet, but I’ve become increasingly worried about the way things are going with our government. The economic whatever its called is hitting my pocket directly and I’ve got a whole family to take care of. The huge company that mortgaged my house has been engaging in bad loans. There aren’t any jobs to be had around here, the food and gas costs have skyrocketed, the community help place up the street has no funding, and we have no local police force. It’s looking grim. And I don’t wanna be the stupid one who’s wandering the street begging when whatever is happening comes to a conclusion. So. What do I do now?

    You have made the first step, welcome aboard.
    Now start small if you are on a budget.couple extra cans or packages of stuff each week. It will add up. Use coupons and sales for stuff. You will be surprised at how things will add up for you. 😀

    Having read thru here. I agree with the thought of a 22 for a survival arm. I might also consider carrying the 410 shotgun my Dad gave me back in the sixties. Considering the fact that I would be using it to survive (take game and such) I feel that would be a reasonable combo to pack with me for fighting survival I would probably go with my Para 45 and my m44 Russian carbine. Just my .02 worth (adjusted for fed taxes and inflation of course) :cursing:
