Re: Defending yourself after the collapse of society
I dont think you are crazy; to the contrary. You are a man with a very practical outlook on things, and possible things to come, and being prepared is very important. It is extremely unfortunate that you are so severely limited in the UK about your firearms alternatives. I look at the UK as a GLARING example of why we must not let similar "gun banning" happen here. I think that given your limited choices, Al Mount is right on the money here. A good shotgun and plenty of shells (preferably buck shot) and a good semi automatic 22 rifle with a large capacity magazine, like the AR platform 22 he recommended, or a Ruger 10-22, or similar arm, are your best alternatives. Be sure if you DO acquire a semiauto 22 rifle that you make sure that you have very reliable magazines as large capacity mags for a 22 are certainly NOT created equally. Good luck.
