The current ammunition situation is putting a huge halt to a lot of peoples preparedness programs. While it is hard to purchase certain calibers of ammunition, you can’t always run out and purchase a firearm in a particular caliber because the ammo is readily available. So what is the next best thing? Check out this new survival rifle from Chiappa Firearms.
