rebart replied to catfish hunter's topic in FirearmsNo, they don't make a 30-30 over 20 gauge.:mad: That would be better, but they used to make a .30-30 over 12 gauge many years ago. That is the ideal survival gun, unless I could have a .308 or .30-06 over 12, which I don't think they ever made.
rebart replied to catfish hunter's topic in FirearmsGuns I would have if starting over: 1. I would start by inheriting my dad’s Savage 99 .308 lever action. Can use ammo for small to large game as needed. This is the rifle I shoot the best and most accurately, and a lot faster than a bolt action. 2. Remington 870 riot/entry shotgun. 3. Ruger 10/22 rifle 4. Ruger .22/.22 magnum single action convertible revolver 5. Ruger .44 magnum 4-inch revolver customized to .454/.45 Colt, or even left .44 magnum 6. .45 acp semi-auto. Either an HK, 1911, Steyer, FN 7. New Savage Model 42 .22 WMR over .410, unless they come up with some even better combinations. A .30-30 over 12 gauge would be great. A great “survival” gun. Serves a lot of purposes. 8. If I had to have a concealable carry gun there are a lot to choose from and I would be happy with many of them. For deep concealment I just might use my S&W 642, or even something smaller. I would NEVER use a .380. You know what they say, “if you shoot a man with a .380 and he finds out about it he’s going to be pissed.” Maybe an S&W Governor with lots of shot shells for small game, and heavy .45 Colt for self-defense.
