Whether it’s a survival scenario, a post apocalyptic situation, a zombie apocalypse, or for other defensive purposes it is always good to have a plan for what your primary, secondary, and tertiary weapons platforms will be.  When it comes to primary weapons mission dictates weapons choice.  So for primary weapons planning; the following options are worth considering.

  • Your primary handgun should either be a semi automatic in 9mm, .40S&W or .45 ACP.  If you prefer carrying a revolver it should be either a 357 magnum or if you can handle the recoil a 44 magnum.
  • Your primary shotgun should be a 12 gauge pump action shotgun using 00 buckshot.
  • Your primary carbine should be an AR15 or an AK47.  If you prefer a long range rifle instead then make sure it is chambered in a round that will reach out to approximately 1000 yards such as the 30-06, .308, 7mm Rem Mag, 7.62x54r, etc.

Planning in advance is the key to being prepared.  Weapons are a vital part of any plan as all the survival items you have will mean nothing; if you don’t have the means to defend them against looters, thugs and all manner of miscreants.

You can see all 5 of my post apocalyptic fiction books, 2 of my zombie fiction books and 1 of my horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page.  Go ahead and purchase one or more over at They are really quite interesting and entertaining to read if I do say so myself.

    Long range stuff needs to be zeroed differently and within zero.
