# 3 Guns To Get You Through Armageddon

Looks like my college neighborhood is gentrifying!

## It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine…

Here’s a thought experiment. Whether it’s a zombie pandemic, the pouring out of God’s wrath a la Revelation, or my ex-wife’s Spanx developed a rip right as she bent over, but it’s happened–the world is coming to an end. In the Spanxpocalypse, you only get to pick out three guns to take with you as you head for the proverbial hills. You know that moving on foot is your best bet, so you’ll have to carry all three of them on your person. Since the SHTF and you might have to forage for ammunition and rely on your own gunsmithing skills, they need to be reliable, easy to feed with commonly available ammunition, and reasonably compact. So what three guns do you pick? Here are my choices:

### 3) Handgun: Colt King Cobra Revolver

This is another relatively new offering from a storied company, but I still feel good about it for a number of reasons. First, it’s a Colt (duh). Second, it’s a revolver…although it’s of course possible for a cylinder to jam, it’s just not as likely to happen as it might with a semi-auto. It’s a bit of a tradeoff in that I’ll only have six shots to work with before I’ll have to reload, but in my opinion it’s worth it. Thirdly, it’s chambered in .357 Magnum, so I’ll have the choice of loading it with 38 Spl. or .357…thus doubling my ammo-scavenging opportunities. With a heavy-duty frame and stainless-steel barrel, it’s guaranteed to withstand me dropping it in terror the first time I see a Spanxzombie up close. At 28 ounces it’s no lightweight (just like my ex–heyo!), but the extra weight will offset the gun’s recoil. For \$899 you can be ready for SHTF Time!
