I agree that for one universal firearm, a .22lr rifle fits the bill. I do not agree that in a SHTF situation that taking large animals with a "head" shot with a .22 rifle is a good idea. Heck in a survival situation, large game killing is not needed until you are in a settled longer term situation. Jmho. The .22 is, however, a great choice for taking smaller game and edible varmits, which is more of a survival type action.
Skullcrusher, you are evil, sick, demented, twisted- and my hero!
