Reply to "The Bro Gun"

So this is actually something my wife and I have discussed rather frequently. This is what I had in mind, understanding that this is a long term goal. Bear with me.

Four rifles. Either AR-15 variants or akm variants. Think PSA Premium, or Wasrs. Each rifle would be assigned five (5) magazines, 1500 rds of ammo, a chest rig w/ four mag capacity, and a basic IFAK. Think along the lines of gloves, pressure bandage, TQ, and chest seal.  Rough guestimate would put you at $900ish  per loadout without spending the time to add it all up.  

Then my wife said something. "Why would we arm people that didn't prepare for themselves?" I was stumped. I guess kind of like if a kid can identify your password, you need a new password. My wife is NOT very tactically minded, and even she was able to identify this. 

Even with just the cost of one loadout, I could pay for my wife to go and take a tactics class, and pay for ammo. I now have a trained two person fire-team, rather than 4 extra schmucks with guns and ammo that probably called me paranoid the week before. 

WITH ALL THAT SAID, if you have a solid group of people that you absolutely know you can depend on, the finances, and patience to support it, then let capitalism take place.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
