With the popularity of apocalyptic, end-of-the-world literature, films, games, and other entertainment has come the rise of many so-called experts in the apocalypse. These folks explain what kind of supplies you should have, where you should run to best assure your survival, the kind of training you’ll need to have a shot in such a scenario, and most importantly the kinds of tools you’ll need to survive. Most of what these people are selling is nonsense, as very few folks alive today really understand what you’ll need when the “stuff” hits the fan. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t wisdom to be gained from a variety of experts about what might be the most important information if the end ever came and you could actually do something to protect yourself.
Recently, one of the NRA’s most important spokesmen, Colion Noir, was asked what his favorite handgun brand was and the conversation evolved from their. As a spokesman for the NRA Noir is fortunate to be able to have ready access to a wide array of different handgun brands, so he couldn’t come up with a good response to the first question. However, when the questioner got more specific, Noir quickly explained that there was one brand that stands out above the rest… Glock.
So, what do you think? Is Noir right? Is the Glock 26 (or the 19) really the best way to go in an end-of-the-world scenario? We’d love to hear about your favorite firearms, and we’d love to know which gun out there today would be the best piece to get your hands on in an end-of-the-world scenario.
