Justin Anderson, the marketing director of Hyatt Guns of Charlotte, N.C., recommended a selection of firearms to have on hand in a larger crisis, such as the one depicted in the upcoming movie Civil War.

Anderson, who emailed his comments because his phone service was down, said, “The most important thing to prepare for events like this is to have a plan. That plan, regardless of the firearms you choose, must include regular training and practice. Just buying the best and most expensive gear won’t mean a thing if you’re not comfortable using that gear. As far as specifics, my plan for two adults includes two AR rifles with 1-4 scopes, two 9mm handguns with holsters, five magazines for each gun, 1,000 rounds each of 5.56 and 9mm ammo stored in airtight ammo cans, a range bag with ear and eye protection, plus two plate vests with magazine pouches.”
