    I second that. I'm far enough out of the city, the closest neighbours are military, LEO, and one firefighter, the lake in the middle of the neighbourhood attracts geese and ducks 60% of the year and has a decent stock of large mouth bass. Circle the wagons and stay put.

    But if I had to leave home and choose one rifle, I'd take a basic 22LR and as much ammo as I could carry, then do my best to avoid people.

    zackly...

    I can fish a short horse ride away and have enough cattle, bison, deer, moose, elk and every manner of edible animal within walking distance. Goat milk is close by as well if I want it.
    I can draw water from the well and have heritage seed stashed away for the garden and enough canned fruit in the cold room to last another lifetime.
    I ain't goin anywhere...cept fishin.

    glock 17,19, conceal carry is the way to go. Move at night, make little noise, scavenge and survive. Move like a panther.

    A rock, lol!

    Not a firearm, but get proficient with rocks, and you would hardly ever run out of ammo around here. :-)

    I'd rather make a difference than a dollar.

    All my Dad had when he was young was a 22. He hunted ducks, geese, hare and deer with it. Pests could also be neatly killed with it. (You don't shoot a skunk with a shotgun.) This was a long time ago and subsistence living was common to generations prior. No one collected guns. They couldn't afford multiple calibres required by today's laws to hunt the various game. No one had camouflage. No one asked for ammo by the gr weight. If one bullet didn't do the trick, more did. The gun was like a shovel, knife, fishing rod, or harrow - just a tool. On that basis I said "22".

    I'm sorry could you repeat that
    according to our idiot constitution we have no right to own arms
    or any history of the like as the US did....... (load of crap facts 101)

    my uncle fed the family with a bolt action 22 most of his life
    before he was picked for sniper duty during WWII
    as a bug out gun it would be quite useful if I couldn't take my AR
