dem nuggets

While we're sharing stories, I used to work at a thrift mall and over the course of 6 months there were around 15-ish nice leather biker jackets donated to us and the pockets were just, FILLED with packets of takeout sweet and sour sauce. We called them the Sweet and Sour Biker Cult and I don't know where they got their jackets or their sauce, only that they wanted to get rid of them.

What to look for in a “Survival Gun.”

A lot of people like to talk about, or mention, guns in their “SHTF” (Shit Hits The Fan) scenarios. They like to include them in their “Go” bags, or their “BoB” [Bug Out Bag] either hypothetically. Now, a lot of these guns can range in their cost and commonality from top tier ARs to low end Mosin Nagants [Dem moist nuggets tho’, bruh.] Seriously. There’s such a multitude to them, that some people just look at names or models and assume they’re good. Not a smart thing to do, in my humble opinion. So, here’s just a few things that you should look at when considering a gun for a survival situation. I think this could be applicable to most types of firearms, just some food for thought.

1.] Commonality. - Is your gun common? Are there multiple spare parts out there for you to find? To use? Are magazines, or clips if it applies, easily found if you don’t have enough? If a firing pin breaks, or wears down, can you find another one? Will you be able to switch it out for a similar model’s firing pin? What about ammo? Is it chambered if some obscure fucking caliber that only the germans or swedes have access to!? If you can’t find the ammo at your local gun shop or walmart, then you either need to invest in reloading, or find a different gun.
2.] Complexity - Are there a lot of moving parts in this gun? Can it be easily broken down to be cleaned or inspected? Can you repair this gun on the fly? Can you clear jams and stove piping? If one part of it breaks or gets loosened up, can it still be used effectively? Are there a hundred moving parts or just two or three? This is something to look at realistically, because it can also make accuracy a factor, it’s why a lot of marksman prefer bolt action rifles: less moving parts means less chances for fuck ups.
3.] Comfort - Can you comfortably shoot it? Are you used to it? Have you trained with it? Is it that gun you can get down and dirty with, or is it some safe queen you keep locked up for special occasions? Trust me, if you’re not comfortable with the gun, and you’re not used to it, and you’ve not practiced with it, much less trained with it, then it’s going to be of very little use to you. If it’s not comfortable in your hands, then you won’t work as well with it. Ergonomics are important. One size fits all never applies in realistic function, especially in firearms. If you’re smaller and weaker, then a pistol chambered for 10mm Auto might be impractical for you whereas a pistol chambered for 9mm Luger or .380ACP would work just dandy. Just because it’s “big and bad” doesn’t mean it’s for you.
4.] Durability - If you drop it in the mud, will it still work when you pick it up? If you lose it briefly in the river, can it still fire after you clear it? If, for some reason, you have to hit a mother-fucker with it, will it still fire? These are important questions you have to ask yourself.
5.] Legality - …Just saying, if you somehow have a PKM Machine Gun and no documentation/legal licenses for it, and you get caught with it, then you’re goin’ to jail long before any “happening” hits us. Be aware of your local laws, bruh.

Meh, just some dumb shit to think about.
