Which brings us to consensus as to what constitutes ‘teotwawki.’
To my mind teotwawki means cities are destroyed, your home likewise destroyed – no food, no water, no power, no LE, no hospitals, no nothing; just what you can carry on your back.
Cities, towns, and neighborhoods are abandoned, you’re heading out on foot into the wilderness to get away from whatever caused the end of the world.
In this manifestation of teotwawki your reloading room is gone – no dies, no press, no brass, no powder, no primers.
That’s why having guns chambered in common, easy to find ammo is vital.
I'd say a lot depends on what you're reloading. I'd imagine straight walled low pressure brass would last a long time...especially if you were only neck sizing.
Agreed...although the Lee Loader is still available...so you could conceivably reload on the move...
But I agree...The Road...
Evidently I am way behind the curve...
Teotwawki can be any number of things. It could be a large meteor hitting the planet and wiping out all life. I don't have a plan for that. Don't need one.
But a societal collapse can be caused by many things. It could be running out of oil, revolution, epidemics ect. If it is nuclear war, I probably won't survive the first volley, and neither will my kids. So no biggie.
Heading out into the wilderness for many means going to a specific place where they have stashed some stuff. Or to a vacation/getaway spot where they have stored provisions and supply. My gun safe will likely survive just about anything.
Eat fun for the end of the world as we know it.... Hm, I figure the one you have on hand most likely. Can’t beat any shot gun really. A good .22 would be real nice. .410 gets no respect! But I have this little Remington that I would feel just fine with. But for the sake of the topic Glock 17 because I got one and an AR 15 because I have one whole one and bits and pieces of at least 1 1/2 more. I would shoot that thing right next to any street legal AK with 1,000% confidence.
