Survival knives I get. You want the biggest knife you can comfortably and perhaps discreetly carry that can do just about anything that won’t lose its edge. Survival guns are a trickier proposition. There are way too many survival scenarios involving way too many variables to select one survival gun to rule them all. If I’m humping through the backwoods shooting small animals to stay alive, then sure, the Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 or Ruger 10/22 Takedown (as suggested by americanrifleman.org) would be ideal. If I’m hunkering-down in a post-Katrina storm shelter deal, an LC9 would be the way to go. Zombies? I call shotgun! Fast moving Zombies? AR you kidding? Still, if you had to pick one gun – not having the slightest clue where you’re gonna be when SHTF and what dangers you’ll be facing – what gun would you choose?
