If you had to pick one gun to survive on, what caliber and brand would it be? Please post what model and type of gun you have. Thanks. BB
Whoops, I put an extra space between the choices. please ignore the blank spaces. BB
Savage Model 111 .270, and yes I can survive with it.
QDM and scent control equal years of consitant sucess.
Reminton 700 BDL 30-06. Shooting 150 gr Hornady SST's.
When I found the skull in the woods, the first thing I did was call the police. But then I got curious about it. I picked it up, and started wondering who this person was, and why he had deer horns. - Jack Handey
One gun for everything? A Remington 870 12 gauge - and a wide assortment of ammo
300 Weatherby and 180g Nosler Partition Bullets - Deer, Elk, Antelope, Caribou, Moose, Bear, ...
I'd hate to have just one!
Gasoline, Gun Powder, and Electricity
I Love It!!!
Love my Browning A-Bolt II Medallion in .300 win mag!!!
One wife, but never, and I mean never, one gun.......
The one I pick up the most right now is a 280 mountain rifle all tricked out with Leupold VariXIII glass.

One gun. Well, I would go with my beloved Sako 75, S/S in .300WM. I guess I could survive with that..sakofan..
Never happen, I mean NEVER!
I hate (hypothetical at this point) polls like this...
Under my breath: (but who knows what the politicians have in store for us, our rights and what they have in store for our beloved Constitution of this United States....)
Sorry, but any public poll that asks the question "If you could only own one firearm" rub me the wrong way!! End Of Conversation!!

Well, sorry but I am mainly asking a person's favorite gun, but if you want to look at it as offensive that isn't really my fault. I don't mean any harm out of it and I am just trying to figure out what is the favorite gun. I don't really see why a poll on here asking you to pick a gun should rub you the wrong way, but sorry anyway. BB

It's more than I'm willing to spend, but I'd get a dakota arms traveler with a few barrels--probably a .257 Wby Mag, and a .338 cal of some flavor.
But, the HSPresision Lightweight hunter in one of the WSM cartridges would be sweet too.

Realizing of course the topic this is under, I have to go with what DKScott said.
But I'd have to go with the Benelli SBE so I can shoot the candles!
Don't you remember Honey? I told you I was going hunting/fishing/shooting/golfing/something!
I would also agree with dkscott on the 870
I love my Savage for the price and accuracy. If I honestly had to go out and buy one rifle right now, then that's probably what I'd do.
There's a lot of other stuff out there I really like. The Kimbers feel really nice to me. I also like the Sako a lot. The fit and finish really beat the Savage hands down, and they're plenty accurate for my purposes.
Browning makes a beautiful rifle, too. The A-bolt is a great design.
I could go on, but I won't. Too hard to choose something like this.
He has no gallery to applaud or disapprove of his conduct... Whatever his acts, they are dictated by his own conscience rather than a mob of onlookers. It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of this fact.
Like that shotgun vote of DK Scotts, but I saw this is in the Medium Bore Rifles and it was said "if you had to pick one gun to survive on, what caliber and brand would it be", I'd have to go with the 03 Springfield. Those are tough old rifles and that 30-06 round is hard to beat, variety of bullets and you can get them anywhere. Voted Ruger, but "survive" brought to mind the ole Springfield I use to have before someone decided they needed it more than me. Hauled it around in my pickup, iron sights, so you don't worry about a scope getting knocked around. Those were made to take some abuse and not let the owner down!
remington 870 express 12 with a full choke and a rifled choke. one gun for everything
You're probably looking for a rifle, but I'm gonna have to agree with the others on the 870. It would be a super mag 12 guage with a few different chokes. I think that this is a very interesting and valid post, BB.
I voted Sako even though I have little personal experience with them I think they are very nice and have a great reputation for accuracy. I also love the styling too. I would make mine in either 300W(S)M or .338WM I think that would cover all the bases for NA and survival.
Having said that I wouldn't feel bad with either my Savage Scout in .308 or my Marlin 1895 Guide Gun I could survive with either of them but the Guide gun is more fun.

Where's the intersection of Buck Ave and Bullet Place?
Chasing the Doe and not seeing the Bucks!
Tough choice between my Remingtons, winchesters, rugers, marlins, brownings, 1874 sharps, but I'd say maybe my steyr mannlicher .270 with 130gr. hornady sst. (sub moa!) Full mannlicher walnut stock with the rotary forged barrel, a pleasure to shoot and nice to look at!
"There's two kinds of men in this world, those with guns and those who dig....."
We got the same gun- mine's topped w/a Leulpold Varix II 3x9. Yours?
Shoot 180gr Rem Corelocks thru it and I can't toutch the accuracy (1-2 7/8" @ 100 yards) with my own handloads.
Benelli SBE with scope and an assortment of chokes - including a rifled choke.

7mm-08, not to much recoil, take down a deer where it stands, sounds good, right?
exercise...eat right...DIE ANYWAYS! you only live once, so make it good!
well i see nobody has said anything about the trusty old winchester model 70 pre64 in 264win mag great shooter , flat as heck too , as for the ammo they are reloads . 140 gr bt by sierra , imr powder 50.0 grn of 4064 , scope b/l 4200 elite 2.5x10x40, all wood stock and if that one fails then the 308 will have to do
Remington 7600 carbine in 30-06 with rear peep and front Firesight. Fast, accurate, and reliable.
Sako TRG chambered in Lazzeroni Warbird (.308) with a Leupold 4X12. Very accurate and truly impressive ballistics.
If I could only have one of my few firearms...I guess the Interarms Mark X in 30.06. The Mauser action ALWAYS works under ALL condions. I put a KDF muzzle break on it a few years ago (feels like a .257 Roberts) and now even my wife can shoot a box of 180 gr handloads at 2800 fps and not get angry.
Also the CZ Mausers are really nice....but so is a Winchester Classic Claw extractor.........
My wonderful brother Mike bought me a Sako a few years back and I must say IMHO that this gun is far and away the sweetest thing I have ever shot. The craftsmanship is solid. And the trigger is smooth as silk. 30.06. If you get a chance to try one out, you will see what I mean.
My own two bits.
