Is there any interest in the older guns as survival weapons? The big question would be availability of ammo. I have a interest in old guns and old ways. I know the old ways will be missed after SHTF but will the old guns? I have .32 sw,.32 sw,.32-20,.38 special,.41 mag,.44-40,.44 special,.45-70 and the .22 lr being the oldest. Ammo for some of these is hard to find so I try to keep close to a thousand of each. I use the .45-70 deer hunting,blood trail is easy as it punches a hole thru and thru. You could also load any of these with blackpowder in a bind,except the .22. I have old smith Wesson’s for the .32’s,.38 special,.41 mag,.44 special,a ruger rifle for the .22 hornet,and a ruger revolver for the.45 long colt.I have a rolling block for the .44-40 ,a trapdoor rifle and a trapdoor carbine for the .45-70. I also keep other weapons for defense,a mini thirty,colt 1911 and twelve gauge. The .22 would be for hunting small game. What do you think? Also we need to make a thread about some of the old lost way of doing things.
