What are you going to do when the shit hits the fan(WTSHTF)?
What weapons will you have in your armory?
These are questions that we hope to address here. Below you will find a list of the top five survival guns that you should have at your retreat before TSHTF. This list is not in any particular order.
The AK-47 has delivered more death and destruction than any other firearm on the face of the earth – And for good reason, the AK is a very well built and simple rifle that is reliable and easy to maintain. AK’s are also very affordable and the ammunition is dirt cheap in comparison to other rifle calibers.
Another great benefit to having the AK as a survival gun is because parts and ammunition are very widely used and readily available. In a post apocalyptic situation, this is definitely a weapon you want to have in your arsenal.
The AR is a civilian version of the M16/M4 family of weapons that is standard issue for the U.S. military. These guns are bit more expensive but their wide use across military and law enforcement make it an obvious pick as a must have survival weapon. The Mil-Spec AR-15’s can fire both 5.56mm and .223 ammunition while the commercial AR’s are only meant to fire .223 so be sure to get a Mil-Spec weapon, it’s worth the extra couple bucks.

3. Glock 19
Everyone needs a good handgun for concealed carry and the 9mm Glock 19 is a perfect fit. The Glock 19 is a mid-sized compact pistol that is easy and comfortable to carry. The low recoil of 9mm and the high magazine capacity make it an excellent choice.
I can hear the bitchin’ already – “But the 9mm doesn’t have enough stopping power”
Let’s see you take a round of 9mm hydroshock and see if you want to come back for more. Don’t worry, I got 17 more of his friends standing by for you. Seriously guys, I’ve carried this weapon all over the world to include high threat areas such as Iraq. I can attest to the power of this gun.
Bonus tip: Use Glock 17 magazines to be able to carry an extra couple of rounds. Loaded to the best condition possible (one in the pipe) you have a total of 18 rounds. Oh-yeah!
4. Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 Rifle
A good gun that shoots .22 LR is imperative in a survival situation. These guns are great for shooting smaller animals and pests in the garden. I like the M&P 15-22 because it’s built like an AR-15 which means optics and other accessories are interchangeable and it‘s a really good way to get some cheap shooting practice without burning through all your spendy 5.56 and .223 ammo.
Did I mention that this thing is an absolute blast to shoot? Yeah. Anyone can afford to shoot all day with this thing.
5. Remington 870
Everyone should have a good 12 gauge in their home and you can never go wrong with the Remington 870. Personally I like the Benelli Supernova for a pump action 12 gauge but it’s a little more expensive and doesn’t have much for aftermarket parts. When choosing survival guns it’s important to choose guns that are popular and nothing is more popular then the Remington model 870.
Well that’s it. That is the bare bones minimum that every survivalist should have. If you work on building up an armory of these guns you will be very well off WTSHTF.
