Ok, here's a hypothetical scenario: A guy at work has been getting into prepping - nothing major, but he's getting a start with all the basics (food/water/gear). He doesn't currently own a gun, but has been thinking about getting something for prep purposes. He has some background with guns (hunter safety class as a kid, hunting w/ uncles, etc.). Family is him, wife, teenage daughter & pre-teen son. They live in a tract-home suburb, on the outskirts of a major city - 20 minute drive you're in town; 20 minute drive the other way you're in the country/woods. What gun(s) & ammo would you recommend he purchase under the following budgets? $300 Budget $700 Budget $1000 Budget Please explain your rationale for different suggestions (not just a list).
