Remington 700 with custom, shortened barrel

Do not get me wrong, I like my semi auto AR and AK platform carbines. But in a true survival situation I may need to consider not just defense, but the ability to hunt and bring down big game at further distances. I like short barreled carbines, and since ease of transport is a consideration, a bolt action in a 16” to 18” barrel fits the bill. The old Remington model 600 Mohawk (18” barrel) is one of my favorites. Likewise a Remington 700 in a short 16” barrel works for me (mine is a Remington 700 LTR on which I have cut the barrel down to 16”). Both my rifles are chambered in 308 and are sub 1 MOA guns if I am doing everything right. I can easily make hits at 500 to 600 yards and beyond, making these compact rifles great for hunting or other needed “precision fire” without lugging around a 12 to 15lb sniper system.

    I like the Henry .22 survival rifle. All the parts ft in the stock. It is light and already is in my bugout box.

    The great thing about a shot gun for survival is you have a way better chance of taking enough game to survive. Ammo is heavier, but you’ll be less likely to miss that squirrel, or quail, or rabbit, etc. ,and taking big game will be easy.

    Not exactly the guns I would have selected, but they still have plenty of utility. Essentially, it’s a good .22, a powerful hunting rifle, a MSR for defense, a good reliable shotgun like an 870 or Mossberg 500, and a handgun in 9mm or larger for those last ditch moments.

    I have the Henry H0001 Lever action Carbine. It will take 22 LR, 22 Long, and 22 short. It doesn’t break down but it is only about 3 feet long, so still isn’t a problem to carry.

    a savage sp 24 over/under .22 mag. 20 ga. mag would be one of my choices for a single gun.
