You know you've had a good week when you find not one but two firearms you really wanted -- and needed. I sold my Kel-Tec P-11 9mm in the middle of the week and on the advice of Doc Chronos, went PF-9 shopping and found one. It's lighter, slimmer, has a much better trigger and the only sacrifice is the 7-round magazine vs. the 10-round magazine of the P-11. The trigger improvement alone made it worth the upgrade. Here's my new Kel-Tec PF-9, with my Uncle Mike's pocket holster, extra magazine and a Hogue Handall Jr. grip. With what was left in my gun fund, I had been thinking about a .38 Super pistol, but after investigating and finding not only are pickings slim, the only one I could afford, the EAA Witness, is darn hard to find or even to order online. And with recent events I decided it was time to fill another big hole in my SHTF plan, a real rifle. So I changed gears and began to scout around for a serious rifle. I used to be a 9mm snob, but I got over that with my S&W 669 subcompact and then with two different Kel-Tec 9s. But I'm still a .223 snob. My idea of a serious rifle round is at least 30'06 or .308. I had a couple of SKS 7.62x39mm rifles and wasn't impressed with that round either. It's fine within 100 yards or so, but out to 200 and beyond, it's practically useless. The same is generally true of .223, though it is a better performer than the SKS/AK round. So I scouted around for a semi-auto rifle in .308 or 30'06 as the best choice for economical shooting plus performance. And lo and behold at my favorite gun shop in fabulous downtown Wagram, NC, I found a Remington 742 in 30'06 in apple-pie condition along with a Bushnell 3x9 scope, for well under $300! So here's my new 742 on top of the gun rack with my Ithaca 37 12 gauge sawed-off pump and a WWI bayonet. That taps out the gun fund for now but I feel like I plugged the two remaining holes in my home defense SHTF hardware plan, one at each end: a good pocket pistol for backup and up close and personal work and a real rifle for reaching out and touching far away. Now I got to start stockpiling ammo, since I seem to have pretty much settled down on calibers. I'm down to only four different pistol calibers, 357 Sig, 10mm, 9mm and .22; plus 12 gauge in shotgun ammo and 30'06 and .22 in rifle ammo. So now I got to stock a food supply for five pistols, two shotguns and three rifles.
