The author offers details about each of the weapons including history and even some interesting movie quotes, but I would have preferred more background information about how the decision was made to select each weapon. For two of the five categories, the author offers two choices to the readers, but I would have preferred to see more alternatives mentioned even without much context. Instead of just the Glock, corresponding models from the S&W M&P line and the Springfield Armory XD line could also be included.
This book was entirely missing a TOC, but the book is so short it shouldn't take you that long to get anywhere in the book.
In the end, I enjoyed this book and the author's perspective, but it was in part due to my prior knowledge of firearms. I wouldn't recommend this book to friends that are new to firearms. I don't like the idea of pointing readers to a specific firearm, but rather to a subset of firearms depending on their needs. Everybody has a different body and slightly different ergonomic preferences. In today's diverse firearm marketplace, choices within specific segments are big deal and can go a long way toward helping a shooter find the firearm that fits them perfectly. I would have preferred to see more on that from the author.
Maybe the second edition will add a little more context surrounding the choices and become the book I was hoping for.
If you enjoy reading about survival, prepping, and firearms, I also recommend Ultralight Survival: Make a Small and Light Bug Out Bag That Could Save Your Life. This book has a decent portion allocated to "Bug-Out" firearms. I'm not saying that this book is better than "Guns for Preppers", but it offers a different perspective that readers may enjoy.
If you enjoy reading about personal security and tactics, I also recommend Tactical Bible Stories: Personal Security Tips from the Bible for advice specifically for keeping you and your family safe in dangerous times.
This ebook describes a primary use, goes over some criteria for that use, then selects the "right" firearm for that use. While not everyone will agree with the criteria the author uses, with the exception of his "battle rifle" choice, he follows those criteria. The author's criteria can cause you to think more logically about your needs, and create you own criteria list.
The ebook suggests that a hunting rifle might be needed, but makes no suggestions for one.
For a "battle rifle", the ebook suggests an AK-47, even though it is unlawful for civilians to own in many countries. As an alternative, it suggests the AR-15, which, IMHO, is far too sensitive to dirt to be a reliable weapon in the scenario the author is describing.
