The atmosphere at my local Austin HEB last night was a bit . . . fraught. Checkout lines were long, shopping carts full to the brim. Customers traded tales of epic floods as they waited their turn. I can only imagine what it’s like closer to Corpus, where hurricane Harvey is due to make landfall and linger, smashing the coast, dumping feet of rain on the Lone Star State, knocking out power to millions of Texans.
So let’s assume you live close to the coast, or somewhere in Houston (which is due to be inundated, too) . . .
What firearm(s) would you keep close? Think about travelling away from the storm’s path, facing “unrest” in a post-Harvey urban environment or being cooped up in a mandatory evacuation center. [Note: while I can’t see Katrina-Style house-to-house disarmament in Texas, no evac center’s going to allow firearms therein.] What gun or guns would be your go-to firearms?
