Well guys, Im on lockdown, and will be for weeks as we get through this virus outbreak. Im sitting here cleaning my guns and its got me thinking about Survival rifles. So in lockdown, supermarkets etc are open but its got me thinking about what if we had a complete breakdown and the power went out for an extended period or supply chains stopped and we had to become completly self reliant as a community. So I live rurally, we have a heap of deer, goats, hares , rabbits etc. Im not hugely concerned about defense but as always its a prudent move to consider it. So what would the rifle I have with me at all times for gathering food, defense and general use look like? Jeff Cooper and the scout rifle concept I feel address this quite well but it certainly doesn't address everyones situation, region even country . So lets chat! where do you live? are you in an apartment? on a farm? in the suburbs? What rifle setup, calibre, action type and optic would meet your needs in a realistic lockdown situation? Im still considering mine so more to follow over!
