If we're talking survival, not war, Ruger 10-22. No use taking big game if you're in a survival situation. You have no way to preserve it in the wild. My 10-22 with a scope would keep me alive a long time. I can carry 1000 rounds easily. Can't do that with anyhing else. If you're also talking evasion, you can't be loaded down with a fancy heavy assualt rifle & gobs of ammo. IMHO, That's not survival. That's an amateur weekend.

Greetings aharley1, welcome to the deerhunters club.



the .22LR compared to the 7.62x39

The .22 catridges may be smaller in size making it possible to carry more rounds "Comfortably",,,
but what you have to keep in mind is, Survival doesn't accommodate comfort.

I haven't answered my own post so far, but I'm thinking a 12 ga in the urban rigging in 3" mag red dot and loaded with oo buck. I could hunt out to 50-60 yds and protect fairly well. Everything is a compromise on this one but responces are interesting and diverse.

I think "One Gun" choice would partially depend on where you lived.

Question,why did they leave you one gun?I'm afraid that is'nt a part of their plan if implimented.
I would hope that they would look at the pre 1898 and muzzleloaders that everyone has and leave them.
If one modern gun,.22mag rimfire,capable of taking anything if FORCED to;and quiet enough to be under the radar in remote enviroment.
Although not recommended,you can fire lr's in mag,it's been done accidently.
