Absolutely! one i would have in my arsenal if i could buy it here in europe. My army have this rifle plus G3 plus glocks model 17 and 19. I live in norway, with very harsh artic climate. FN-FAL's froze here when guys from the british army were up here training some years back. I'd go for either a FN-FAL or G3, but my personal pref in the conditions up here would be a G3.
I would go for durability and reliability plus its millitary value ALL THE WAY! Guns are not likely to be used in a war now, but in 20-30 years, who knows. Probably your son or grandson will be the one that would need them, so get guns that will last and work long after guns are banned, in a time where spare parts is almost impossible to get.
Heres what I would buy:
- A .50 cal rifle (like this barret) since its truly a supreme long range sniper rifle and will have a big millitary value
- G3 rifle(s) (PTR-91 are said to be good american-made G3 clones)
- Glocks (.45 is a civilian round, 9mm is used by armies world wide and seems to be a standard, so i'd go for a 9mm)
There you have an excellent setup. Maybe add an AK47, a heavy barrel 308 rifle like remington 700 in case .50 ammo is impossible to get and a shotgun also (like remington 870) if you have money for it. Probably you dont, but these things might come handy too.
Get spare parts, springs, extra barrel etc, lots of ammo, oil it well and hide it for a bad day. A PVC pipe you seal with silicon and dig down in a semented drum or something somewhere nobody will find it.
Then as a second priority i would buy bulletproof vests, helmet, night optics etc. Not likely to be banned/regulated.
Third priority extra food, water-purifyer, antibiotics/first aid equipment, gassmask, solar cell panels, ovens so you can heat your house by firewood (in a cold climate), gold, pay off debt.
But remember, guns will be more valuable than gold if outlawed and will give you a good bargain for trade in those circumstanses.
