It is easy to tell if a person understands the use of firearms or not when they ask why you have so many guns. Many times they assume you are collecting them because you are prepping for some war. It is rare that anti-gun people actually acknowledge that these guns each have an individual purpose. There is no such thing as a one gun for all purposes.

This blog is to introduce you to the many firearms I own and WHY…

Each firearm I own serves a purpose. Some are for hunting large or small game. Some are for defending chickens, cats, dogs, & garden from predators with a nonlethal option when possible. Some of these firearms are also used for self defense and home protection.

It takes the police around 45 minutes to an hour to get to my homestead in the country. During that time if my wife and I had no way of protecting ourselves then the police would never be able to get here in time to do it for us. We could be raped, tortured, and even killed in that time. I should inform you also that in my state of Pennsylvania there are several laws protecting people’s right to defend themselves with the use of lethal force when appropriate. Also police have no law that requires them to protect you. They are obligated to protect you by their OATH but nothing more. Here are two websites that will inform you more so about that:

So with that said you can rely on police to defend you if they so choose to do so. But for me and my family we choose to defend ourselves and call the police for backup if need be. I am not anti-cop by any means. The state police in my county are very good people from those I have met with on occasion. I have had trespassers on our land and burglars and idiots around town requiring me to call the police and every cop that arrived were very nice and professional. The same goes for the sheriffs here. Although I have met some officers that were real jerks in other counties and states.

It is also our constitutionally protected right and I declare duty to bare arms in defense of our country from both foreign and domestic tyranny.

1st-10th Amendments (2)

We live 100% off grid short of internet and phone. We are still sociable for now. We rely on growing food, raising chickens, and hunting for a portion of our food. We do still utilize the grocery stores too. This requires us to have firearms for hunting and protection from predators, human or wild animal.

With all that said here is a look at the firearms we own and the reasons for owning them:
