True. But ETS is not really an EOTWAWKI kind of place and I'm not a "Doomsday Prepper." I've been a "gun guy" all my life and my collection is kind of built around EBRs and duty-type sidearms. While it's true that nearly all my firearms were designed to be superb fighting weapons, it's also true that shooting is just a lot of fun. Why not both? grin
