There are many different choices of what firearm to use for what. This is a list of some of the features that each type has. (The weapons in the images are some examples of the available firearms)

First is the deer rifles, these rifles are also known as hunting rifles and pack a punch. A good deer rifle will most likely be zeroed at 100 yards, that way it is easy to adjust for farther distances, and have enough force to kill medium-sized game. While you don’t need to have something like a Remington 700, a good deer rifle can reach out and touch something to around 3-500 yards. 

Some recommended rounds:

  • .270 Win
  • .30-06 Springfield 
  • .300 Win Mag
  • 7mm-08
  • 7mm
  • 6.5 Creedmore
  • .308 Win (or 7.62 NATO)

​Another type of firearm is an “assault” rifle. These rifles are used mainly for battle purposes, however, they can be used to hunt sometimes, and are fitted for combat. They are going to be light and shoots a smaller round than the hunting rifles (so more rounds can be carried). Even though these rifles are going to be used for combat, they should only be used for harm if absolutely necessary. These should be zeroed between 50-100 yards.

Some recommended rounds:

  • 5.56×45 mm/.223 Rem
  • 7.62×39 mm
  • 7.62×51 mm (.308)​​

A shotgun can outdo any firearm in close range combat. The power that a shotgun has is unmatched up close. However they don’t do as good for distance shots (unless using slugs). They are also great for gaining entry to locked doors if needed. ​

Some recommended shells:

  • 12 Gauge
  • 20 Gauge
  • 8 Gauge (if you can handle the recoil)

Some different types of shot:

  • Birdshot (7-8 shot)
  • Buckshot (00 Buck)
  • Slugs (1 oz)
  • Dragon’s breath (to scare)
  • kitchen sink

The final type of firearm is a handgun. Handguns are useful for close quarters and self defense. They also function as a great backup if your primary has an issue (i.e. jam, empty mag, tight quarters, and so on). Another good part of handguns are their weight along with their round’s weight.
