My wife has said that I have been focused on guns lately, which is true,but given the current climate I think that it is wise to really be thinking about self defense.
If you've spent any amount of time prepping, and own guns. Then you have heard the conventional wisdom of buying a gun in the most common calibers. While this is still excellent advice in being able to find ammunition in a SHTF scenario, I'd like to present another argument.
During this latest spike in ammunition demand, the most common calibers have been wiped out.
If I had my weapon(s) squared away, then I would consider adding a less common caliber into the storeroom. Here is my reasoning, if you are out shopping for a coming crisis, you would still be able to buy ammo that everyone else doesn't need. Go look at your current supply that is available, and see what caliber of ammo is still available and make your decision on a comparable caliber for your needs/wants. I guess this would only apply if you don't currently have enough ammo stockpiled, which could be an entirely new post.
Maybe a 303, 30-30 or 38 Special, 357 Sig, or 7.62x54R?
Just Sayin' and comments/debates/discussions are always welcomed.
