Why You Need a Main Battle Rifle.

The Main Battle Rifle is just as important of a prep as food/water and shelter/heat. Without a good rifle you won’t be able to keep your other preps in a collapse or SHTF situation. If you don’t have a good rifle, you will have to count on your government….maybe that’s what your government wants. Maybe that is why they want your rifle?

    Nice video man! People if your on a serious budget like me and unemployed like me and want a quality semi automatic rifle go with Saiga. The Saiga runs brand new for 350 for the AK 7.62×39 & the .308 runs 550 Read reviews, post & watch videos on this weapon. It’s a quality AK.

    What I meant to say is;

    The M-1 and m-14 are GREAT rifles.

    I picked the AR and AK as good platforms in all areas to be considered, parts, affordability etc.

    Yes. these are fine choices, but there are not my favorite to shoot. They meet all the criteria that a person would want for a SHTF senario

    would you consider an M-1 Garand and M-14 adequate?

    Again, the foreign troops would have to get through ours. And I say “good luck with that.”

    I do see the possibility, or even probability of the government attempting to reign in the people, but, I also see the military, taking sides with the people and the Constitution. That is one of the things that hangs up Washington – they have already branded returning vets as potential “terrorists.” I see that to mean that they know that they are aware of who stands between them and their agendas.

    If it ever comes down to “the people” vs the military, I agree, that it could happen as you describe – My concern, is that it won’t be U. S. soldiers that are forced to obey orders , but foreign troops [ already on our soil ] who would have no national allegiance towards Americans with guns , and would do as they are ordered –
    Waco was a display of what is to come – only , this time, it won’t be FBI or ATF , but Serbs or Columbians , etc., trained by U.S. military –
    Lock and load !

    In the situation a lot of us see, a goodly portion of the military, if not the majority of them would be on “our side.”

    Ron Paul, as a Constitutionalist received more funding from the military than any other candidate. They would much more likely take the side of the people than a commander asking them to attack the people – to which they belong.

    Ya know – What you portray here, is old west gun stuff, which may have worked then – but the reality today is so different, that you can’t even make a comparison !
    Sure, you can have your main battle rifle, but if you think you are a match against military power that is maneuvering to come against you – you are up shit creek, and you will only achieve one thing – to die now, rather than die later !
    Of course , I could see where one might want to make that choice !

    Great collection. Every society that gave up their guns, eventually were murdered. From Stalin, Mao to Hitler. They all wanted the guns. They say, history repeats itself. If they take our guns, we will die. American history show that the main battle rifle is what gave us our independence and freedom. Give up your rifle – you give up your freedom. I have and AR 15 and no one is taking it away.

  10. @BurroBurrito1, huh?

    Great video, I love the Urp clip.
    Lets all go tegether.
    5 stars.

  12. BurroBurrito1 | March 15, 2010 at 7:35 am |

    because the people who make AK make Saiga

  13. liabatud67 | March 15, 2010 at 8:03 am |

    Yes sir, VERY appropriate that you used that clip of Daniel.

    Good job!

    5 stars. Great vid. Over here the options are so restricted, you might as well have pea shooters and a white flag!!!

  17. Yankeeprepper | March 15, 2010 at 10:05 am |

    The 308 is a DPMS make of an AR platform. A very fine rifle.

    The AK is a preban 7.62 x 39

  18. …then what is the 308 that you are showing in your Choosing a MBR vdo ?…

  19. Yankeeprepper | March 15, 2010 at 11:10 am |

    Keep that old Springfield, THAT’S a Rifle!
    I REAL rifleman’s rifle.

    Saiga’s are crap and their parts….including most importantly magazines do not interchange with AK’s. This defeats the purpose of picking the AK as a SHTF common weapon.

    The “best” AK’s are said to be made in Bulgaria and Yugoslavia now, so I have heard…….??? But there is so much hype and BS around AK’s it’s a pain in the butt.

    Mine works great for what it is. But I have had to “work” it over.

  20. …are the AK parts interchangeable with Saiga ?…

    …I never even knew of the Saiga ’til yesterday when I googled after watching your vdo…

    …the gun law advise was not on youtube but a gun dealer site…

    …I will do some more research on the subject..

    …thank you for you efforts to reach people with info….

    …I still have my old Springfield that my dad had from the war… and a 1911…

  21. Yankeeprepper | March 15, 2010 at 12:04 pm |

    Parts for AK’s can be found almost anywhere. I bought a super cheap Romanian folding stock for my super cheap AK off the internet. Try your nearest gun dealer or gunbroker .dot com

    I have no idea what your local gun laws are and nor would I trust any advice on YOUTUBE when it comes to firearm restrictions. The best source of info for firearm restriction would be your local gun dealer or club.

  22. …is that a Saiga 308 ?… and where did you find a folding stock for it ?… I google and one sales site said they were not legal in Calif… is this so ?…

  23. nice vid i shoulda watched it sooner

  24. Yankeeprepper | March 15, 2010 at 2:06 pm |

    Hold off until you see my 2 cents on rifles. The rifle itself is a small part compared to the calibur. I am going to try my best to get this across.
    I have been busy but will put it up soon.
    Thanks Ken.

    If I were you………I would stock up on cleaning supplies next time your in town.
