Survival gun
If you had to pick one gun, only one, for survival, what would it be?

I think I would choose a 12 Ga. pump, probably a Remington 870. With a supply of field loads with 6's or 7 1/2's, some OO Buck, and some good old 1 oz. rifled slugs I think you could handle a lot of different situations from defense to feeding you and your family. Finding ammo along the way probably would not be too hard either.

That sounds right to me. But it really depends on circumstances.

12 ga would be my first choice. SKS or AK second.

Is this gun for surviving zombie doom or the cable going out?

You mean my .22 wouldn't cut it?:eek:

12g, fires a nice variety of rounds, can take down anything from a bunny to a bear. And, every store that carries ammo carries 12g ammo.

Only one? Are we talking SHTF street survival, or lost in the woods survival?

SHTF street survival would be my Mini-14 with a good supply of ammo.

Lost in the woods, If I knew ahead of time I was going to be lost in the woods, I would take along a shotgun with a variety of ammo, for taking birds, deer, pigs, whatever. But then again if I had my wife along to tell me which way to turn, I never would have gotten lost in the first place. :eek:

Mossberg 930 Autoloader Field/Security Combo, with interchangeable barrels suitable for hunting and self-defense.

List price of only 558.00, meaning you should be able to pick one up for noticeably less than that at any reputable gun shop. Be sure to stock up on plenty of buckshot AND birdshot.

12 gauge would be a good choice. A good 22 would work too.
