Budget Guns vs. Cheap Guns

In your quest for preparedness and survival in case of SHTF or TEOTWAWKI, undoubtedly one of the most important pieces of equipment you should have in your goody bag o’ buggin’ (AKA BOB AKA bug out bag) is a firearm.

Realistically, this is a piece of equipment you should have on your EDC list. However, some people don’t want to carry a firearm on their person daily, yet do keep one in the home.

Guns are Expensive

There is a common misconception that you have to spend a fortune to get a good gun. In fact, this is not the case. There are several firearms makers out there who offer a quality product at an affordable price. But let’s not confuse a budget priced gun with a cheap gun.

    Don’t know where you are, but my local FFL has seen no fall in customers. In fact, interest is growing on owning since the threat of confiscation seems to be accelerating purchasers hereabouts. Looks like pricing will be going down on AR’s due to the increase in purchasing (lowering manufacturing costs). Get em, shoot em, enjoy. Don’t forget the AK’s. May just get a relax on foreign imports soon. One can only hope.
