Survival weapons, particularly firearms, can be the priciest part of any survival kit, cache, system or bug-out system.
They are expensive but without them, you put yourself at an extreme disadvantage.
This is particularly true if you are facing a wilderness survival situation where hunting is a necessity, an urban situation with civil unrest or a long-term survival situation where you eventually will run out of your food supplies.
You can make an argument that without a firearm in each of those three scenarios, your safety and health are directly affected, depending on what you do or do not have!
Luckily, even if you can only afford the bare bones when it comes to firearms, you do have options.
On the next page, we discuss one option for an inexpensive, durable and very effective firearm: The Mosin Nagant Rifle.
