My Disaster Gun
If you had to choose one gun—and only one gun—to get you through a disaster (be it traditional or zombie-related), what would it be? If you could have one firearm (that’s realistically available) to protect yourself, your family and your assets, what would it be and why? Here are 10 choices made by some of the editors and contributors in NRA Publications. What would you choose? Let us know.
In a truly horrible disaster, where all semblances of law and order and society have broken down, why settle for anything less than the best option for fixed-position defense? Sure, the rare transferable model runs about $250,000, and your ammo stockpile better have a minimum of the same number of figures, but you’ll be able to repel almost any assault on your home. A mass of looters, an adrenaline-crazed lunatic—and even some rogue aircraft—are no match for this 7.62 NATO motorized Gatling gun capable of 4,000 rounds per minute without overheating. And, while some might claim the sound of a pump shotgun’s action is enough to scare off evil-doers, I’m reasonably certain the sound of a burst from this baby will scare off anyone inside a rather large radius. Just be sure to have a generator handy if the power goes out, because the M134 requires electricity to run its motor.
