Re: Survival rifles
That's the gun I was thinking of.
If I had to rely on only one gun I would pick a shotgun without question. IMO a survival gun is not a hunting gun.
There are a bunch of different 22's that I really like. Most are either hunting or plinking guns. Something that braks down and fits in a pack would be the best bet. I surely wouldn't want to carry my Marlin around all the time.
If not breaking state lines I would carry a handgun personally. I use a Heritage Rough Rider 22 with a 6.5 inch barrel. If I feel I need more power I toss in the mag cylinder. I carry this gun while fishing, scouting or just going for walks in the woods. I would like a bit shorter barrel, but it works. That gun has an alloy frame and doesn't weigh very much anyway.
