Building your survival weapons arsenal is NOT a “one-size fits all” scenario.
You obviously will have different circumstances during a post-disaster crisis based upon the conditions you find yourself in.
Therefore, you need a different defense plan for the threats you may face, right?
Let’s take a look at the differences and let me help you with…
What’s The Best Survival Weapons Plan For Bugging Out vs. Bugging In?
Ok first, let’s tackle your “bug-in” weapons considerations…
Bug-In Survival Weapons Considerations:
If you’re not forced to evacuate your home and can “survive in place”, your major threat may be a “home invasion” style attack…
- Looters coming to raid your home
- Gangs targeting you and your family
- Desperate “everyday citizens” seeking food
In this scenario, you have several options of “high-tech” weaponry you can use to protect yourself – such as a shotgun, or semi-automatic or even long-range bolt-action rifle.
Bug-Out Survival Weapons Considerations:
When you’re forced to evacuate your home due to natural disaster or the threat of chaos is just too close to trust that you’ll be safe in your home, your threats will come in a different form…
- Predatory mobs of unprepared “survivors”
- Roaming packs of dogs turned wild & vicious
- Militia-style check-points expecting “payment”
For these types of threats – when you have no choice but to venture beyond the safety of your home – you’re going to need a different defense plan.
While a lot of “preppers” are fond of their AR-15 or other military-style rifle, how far do you think you’ll get walking down the street – or even in the woods – with a weapon slung over your shoulder?
You’re guaranteed to be stopped by authorities and have your firearm confiscated.
Or worse… be targeted by the “wolves” among us who will think nothing of ambushing you when you least expect it and take your weapon as their own.
To truly be prepared to defend yourself, you need to be much more “covert” so you’re armed and ready… and no one knows it.
Your weapons need to be easily concealed and yet able to launch into action if you’re ever stalked, ambushed, or mobbed outside of your home.
Your attackers will never know what hit them… but you gotta be smart when it comes to what you choose and carry.
Even if you regularly carry a concealed handgun, it may be fine for everyday use “today”… but the wrong choice for concealed carry after a disaster.
I can’t tell you how critical it is that you get this right!
In fact, a firearm may not even be your best survival weapon choice at all under certain circumstances.
That’s why I always recommend taking a “layered” approach with your survival weapons arsenal.
My current plan uses a “12-layer” defense strategy.
Missing just one of these layers could literally mean the difference between life and death for you or someone who’s counting on you for protection.
Yes, it’s that serious!
Don’t take it for granted that you’re all set for a collapse simply because you “own a gun and know how to use it”.
You need to be smarter than that.
I know you’ll be shocked at the gaps you find in your current plan.
It never fails. 🙂
