why buy guns for other people?

if shtf, what good are such people? if they couldn't be bothered to buy their own guns, they won't be anything but a drag on you. The only thing that they'll be able to HIT anything with is a silenced .22 autorifle.

as for investments, AK and M16 mags are MANY times more likely to triple in price in the next few years. That's the investment to make some money with, and $50 AR lower receivers. Not clunker bolt actions.

Some times and places, there may be/ are heavy restrictions in place before TSHTF in one way or another. If one as a " bad times stash"( or several) off paper and as maintained a reasonably low profile; it CAN be a good thing to " arm the neighborhood " -assuming of course they're people who have value to you and can be trusted to pull together as needed. Not always possible, but valuable when it is.
I wish I could have scored a few of those pallet loads of SKS's and Mosin Nagants( along with related supplies) back in the day.
Would have been funny as hell in my old neighborhood should the Balloon Have Gone Up ,and " problem people of one type or another " have decided to make an incursion...
As I stated, not always desirable; but priceless when it is.

such money would have been 2-3x better spent on .22lr ammo. CAn STiLL sell it all day long for a dime a shot in my area. could have been bought for 4c, in bulk, just 4 years ago.

if they aint got enough gumption in them to buy their own $100 used .22lr autorifle, they aint worth having around, guaranteed.

Just wow.

My dad died january of 2015 at 91 years old. He grew up in rural kentucky during the depression. In WW2 he was an army ranger, and never hunted after that. He did kill animals on the farm, but never went hunting animals again.

He kept a couple handguns for defensive use, but never cared to own a rifle after the war. When he died, he had one of my M1 carbines at his house; I asked him to keep it for me as I'd "run out of room in my safe".

He was "worth having around", regardless of the pontifications of someone who never met him.

he had some guns. That's different. What I meant to say was "if they can't be bothered to have at LEAST (the most effective/efficient) gun, which is a silenced .22lr auto (for nearly everyone( but if they have SOME gun, they've at least made an effort). a few years ago, I new, slightly, a 95 year old ww2 vet, very spry, and Jack Lalanne was active until his death at 95, so it does happen, but it's rare.
