NEF or Rossi single shot .22LR would be a good choice. You can have some extra barrels for hunting versatility.

there is different kinds of survival different meanings for the word. come sht hit the fan time and i gotta pick a round to kep me fed no matter what .22LR would the choice. can always make a bow to take big stuff.

anyway it just depends on where you are and what your trying to survive.
My thoughts exactly.

My survival weapon of choice is a suppressed bolt-action Brno .22lr. It's lethally accurate, reliable, not at all finicky on what I feed it, takes 5- or 10-shot mags and (with subsonic rounds) so quiet you won't spook other game.

I can throw 200+ rounds into my pockets without hampering my movement or weighing me down - for a fraction of the cost of 200 rounds of .308 or 12ga bird shot.

In the sort of survival situation I see as most likely hereabouts (living off the land because of natural disaster or becoming "geographically embarrassed" while tramping) I wouldn't worry about whether I can make a wing shot - I'd take 'em on the water or the ground...

"Sportsmanship" < "dinner" in a survival situation.

The Brno doesn't break down as readily as some of the others mentioned but it's not overly heavy or long.

The firearms made to fit in a pilot's ejection seat pack (the .22 Hornet/ .410 shotgun" would be marvelous- however, due to the 14 inch barrel, these are regulated as Class III firearms in the US (short barreled shotgun, short barreled rifle)- and are EXTREMELY pricy. I DO like bolt action .22s- with the right ammo, I would be VERY hard to find. However, for space and bulk, has anyone considered a .22 PISTOL- such as a Ruger? While not as accurate as a rifle, the ones with longer barrels are pretty darned good. The pistol and 200 rds of ammo weighs less than an empty shotgun.
