Just one gun?

In a survival situation I would be ground swatting all types of water foul with my FAL.

In a survival situation I'd have to bring my Mossberg 12ga 500a. From small game and fowl with fine shot, self defense with buckshot, and slug for big game you can't go wrong with the versatility. Plus the ability to hand reload shotgun shells in the field is great for long term sruvival. Anything living within 100yards would be toast.

My mossberg hasnt failed me yet and it fires everytime I pull the trigger.

I would have to agree with the 12 gage shotgun it is the most versitile. I was told when I first started hunt that I would never go hungry if I only had a 12 gage.
F.K.

Oh, I suppose it would be a 12 gauge, probably a pump action, with a 3 inch chamber, and 26 inch barrel. That would be one of my Remington 870 Express guns.

There is an argument between a shotgun and a rifle on witch one would be better. In my case I would prefer a rifle just for a longer range. As far as small game/water fowl all you need to do with a rifle is head shoot them. Small game is what I learned to shoot a rifle with. There were very few rabbits within a 100 yards that got away along with the number of grouse that were shot in the head with no meat damage. A shot gun is nice but give me my rifle.

I guess I'd have to keep my Valmet Mod 412S which is an O/U, 12ga over .308. Sounds like also keeping the double 12ga barrels would be cheating, so just the one set of barrels 12ga over .308 and topped with a QD mount holding a Weaver V3. Small game, turkeys and waterfowl with the 12ga., and deer and other big game with the 12ga/slugs and .308. Thumbs up

I've got an 870 Super-Mag Turkey gun, with a 23" Rem-choke barrel. It is very accurate with slugs (I've got Tru-glow sights on the rib). But for some reason, I get get enough .270 Win rifles. I love that round.
