Keep in mind that while they may not see you they will definitely hear you. If I were in a bug out position where I had to hide my choice would be a silenced bolt action 22lr. Possibly a semi with a slide lock. 500 rnds of 22lr target would be easier than carrying 100 rnds of CF.

My first rifle was a Model 94 and I still have it. It remains my favorite rifle. I think most gun owners will agree that the 94 is lots of fun to shoot. It is simple, dependable and a lot more accurate than it gets credit for. It will hold a total of eight rounds and is a great self-defense gun in the right hands. Many people think that a rifle like the AK-47 is the way to go just because it holds 30 rounds and can be fired fast. The AK-47 is also very simple and dependable but spraying bullets doesn't always get the job done. I am of the opinion that familiarization with a rifle and shot placement is the most important factor to consider. I would hate to be in a situation where I would need 30 shots available to have a chance. I have carried my 94 for my protection many times and felt pretty good about it. Besides, if I want to fire fast and often I have a Springfield NM M1A for that.

I've delegated my AK to SHTF use, but that's hardly high praise.

I prefer my SKS for hunting use and more accurate shooting

at the range...

Hit the target with whatever you have at the time. That is a good start. Hit it hard and often if you can.

The .30-30 Winchester is a High-Power Rifle cartridge, the 7.62x39 is a Intermediate cartridge, & no question is a dumb question, & yes the 1894 Winchester.

It may not hold 30 rounds, and it sure isn't as scary as an ak47, but its my favorite. Plus its more accurate. Now if I could just find 3030 ammo as cheap as 7.62

gutz47, 30-30 ammo is as cheap as the 7.62x39 because you will shoot a lot less of it. I think you can do more for your shooting skills with 100 rounds of 30-30 than with 500 rounds shot through an AK-47. The 94 is a classic.
