We all appreciate the need to have backup supplies and equipment. So while I've got the backups/reserves going, I took that theory into my firearms in a slightly different way. I have semiauto long guns with the same caliber non semi-auto firearms as backup. One example is an M1A with two bolt actions in the same caliber as backup. Another is a semiauto .22 and a lever gun in .22LR. For shotgun, I have a pump 12ga. and a coach gun, but want to add a semiauto to the mix. Of course, spare parts, springs and mags are on hand for all. Anyway, I thought the idea might provide food for thought.
