if you could only have one rifle for a survival tool, which brand,model and caliber would you choose? consider that you can only carry what you can on you.
if you had to choose between a flash light, a lighter and poncho to carry, which would you choose?
if you had to abandon your home for any reason , what would you take with you? knowing there's a chance that you might have to survive for days possibly away from home, say 3-5days

Ruger 10/22 and the lighter. The second part of your question does not make sense though. A lighter is pretty small compared to a poncho, and a flashlight can be tiny, so I don't see why anyone with a typical pair of jeans on could not carry all three. But it's your game so I answered within the rules.

thank you, my second question referred to that whatever caliber or rifle you choose, you must remember that your going to carry as much ammo as your body can carry, in other words you cant say ak-47 and 10k rounds of ammo, it would be pretty heavy. there's no extra help, . in response to the question, i would choose a pcc(pistol caliber carbine) maybe a ruger pc9 with a lightweight stock. knowing i can carry more ammo for a .22, but comparing it with a 9 or a 40, i would rather choose these over the 22 comparing stopping power. referring to the last question, i'd choose the flashlight, why?: 1.it lights the way at night. 2.i can use the lens to make a fire as well.

Well the 10/22 is a .22 LR. If I am in a true survival situation I want something that I can take game with. Sure a .22 gives up some stopping power, but 90% of the game you can take will be small, rabbits, tree rats, maybe a bird of some kind. A .22 will not destroy as much meat and I can carry 1000+ rounds with ease, 1000 rounds of even 9mm will be very heavy. BTW, how are you going to start a fire with a plastic flashlight lens, not saying it can't be done, but good luck. I don't need a flashlight at night, it's amazing how much your eyes will adjust.

These kinds of situations are purely hypothetical and will not happen anyway, at least in our lifetimes. It almost seems like some guys want this to happen just so they can use their survival skills and survival equipment, and survival guns. Why don't you just go off into a remote woods sometime and pretend it has happened and then come back and ask yourself if you really do want it to happen?

I agree with the .22 LR. My broth in law is stocking it because it's lightweight and for small game but ..... I'm leaning towards buying a Hi Point 9mm carbine for more stopping power. Do y'all know of any other low end options of 9mm carbine besides Hi Point??

I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.

My winchester model 190 .22lr ,and lighter . If I had to abandon my house I would pick up my BOB and be out the door in about 30 seconds , I would grab as much ammo as I could take with me for my AR and .22LR . Everything else I need is in that 5800 ci backpack and will take me for as long as needed so long as I can shoot some food . Deer, rabbits, ducks, goose, squirrel, pheasant, and others are readily available around here and a headshot on a deer with a .22LR will always get the job done in a relatively quiet fashion . The .223 would only be for security purposes or long distance
