Firearms recommendations Pt.2

My second recommendation of the next firearm you should own. This is a harder decision to make and is not an absolute recommendation for everyone. However, all of my first five recommendations should, in my opinion, remain the same. The order in which you choose to purchase them may be different. Thus, my second recommendation is… A .22 LR rifle. More specifically I highly recommend the Ruger 10/22 in any of its configurations. I did not recommend a specific handgun, although I do have my preferences and reasons, because there are truly many, many great options out there for you for a handgun choice. It truly is a personal decision; from the feel of the weapon in your hands to the location of the magazine and slide releases which depends upon the size of your hands and fingers. 

However, the Ruger 10/22 has proven itself reliable and accurate for decades and thus I will give it my highest endorsement! It is great for kids and adults alike. A .22 LR rifle is highly versatile, ammo is inexpensive and it’s a lot of fun to shoot! A .22 LR rifle can be used for hunting small animals and can even, with a well placed shot or two, take down a deer in a survival situation. I assume that many of you who are reading this are probably not hunters, neither am I. However, in a survival situation you can easily carry your BFF, a .22 LR rifle and LOTS of ammo with you. Ruger manufacturers many different versions of this rifle including the classic carbine that I grew up with, heavy barrel target rifles, tactical versions, a two piece take-down rifle and many other versions. The Ruger 10/22 is also probably the most customize-able rifle (next to an AR-15) out there as aftermarket manufacturers make all kinds of accessories to customize and personalize your 10/22. 

You may also want to consider a lever or bolt action .22 LR rifle. Bolt and lever guns will ultimately be more reliable than a semi-automatic but if you do as I do; keep my 10/22 well maintained and keep extra parts just in case, a semi-auto is more versatile and can be better used in a self-defense situation than a bolt or lever action.
