Words Of Wisdom - Guns

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Preppers. I have (like many of you) many years of experience with guns. My father bought me 22 Lr when I was 6. I went hunting with him before that. I spent 6 years in the US Army. So I am pretty familiar. Here are some random gun tips / thoughts that I would like to share. Add yours to the comments.

1) Unloaded guns aren’t. ALWAYS have your weapon on safe. Never point at anything you don’t want dead.

2) In a pinch, a LIGHT coat of motor oil can be used on your weapons. (Warning: too much gums it up)

3) Have practice Magazines, and SHTF mags. SHTF Mags are ones that you have bought new and ran less than 50 rounds through. Don’t store them fully loaded. It weakens the springs.

4) Have a way to carry your mags. Ammo pouches, vests…etc. Make it concealable if possible. Plan on carrying at least 6 mags and one in the gun.

5) Know your weapon. If you don’t have the Owner’s manual on how to break it down, download it NOW from the Manufactures website. Print it and keep it in your survival library.

6) Find out what common parts break on your gun. Order them, and store them. You WILL be the only gunsmith you know, if SHTF.

7) You need 3 gun cleaning kits. One for use. One for back up. And one in your BOB.

8) Get extra Brushes for common calibers, even if you don’t own one. You might “Pick-up” an AK or AR somewhere down the road.

9) Have tools in your cleaning kits. Some weapons require these to break them down. A small metal file is needed as well.

10)Sorry, I have to say this in good faith…Sight your weapon before you need it. Don’t wait until SHTF to find out you can’t hit your target.

11)Know how your gun shoots. Know the feel. If you are firing and it didn’t feel right or sound right, you have had a miss fire. DO NOT FIRE ANOTHER ROUND UNTIL YOU MAKE SURE THE BARREL IS CLEAR. The next shot may blow the barrel and possibly end your SHTF days.

12)Know what Types of ammo your gun likes. Some guns are fussy and don’t like different types of ammo. Only stock up on what your weapon likes.

13)Never carry / sling your weapon with the barrel facing upwards, when it is raining or snowing.
