I like Malloy's choice. Like every kid on my bus route, I received mine on my 10th birthday. She's averaged about 40 squirrel a year, given a high of 77 and a low of zero for those times I walk/ride from Nastyville to Shitburg. Tastes like chicken. .410/.22 OU.

OK, so the .410 slug doesn't do to the gelatin block what your Desert Eagle does.
Squirrel don't live on the internet.

Depending on local laws (I am buying this ahead of time, so it has to be 100% legal) Either a G35 with a shoulder stock (SBR) or a Marlin 1894s in .357.

John Wayne, maybe. But, if memory serves, Bond preferred mouse guns over rifles. He started out with a Beretta 418 .25 and then was upgraded, over his protests, by Q to the Walther PPK .32. It wasn't until some time after Ian Flemings died that his character started carrying 9mm, and even then he preferred subcompacts (ASP 9mm).

Depends on the nature of the SHTF.

Sure it does. No one was scared off by a big hunting story featuring one squirrel? LOL.
But who, given the chance of 1, chooses 1?
Yet, in the world of probability that is the answer.
If I could have but one it would be the one I wanted at that moment.

Still, the idea of the lightweight O/U, varmints, fire built out of the wind and some rocks to cook upon. This is nice , no matter if the known world has ended or not. I understand the interest in battery-fired, multiple-round, short barreled kinetic energy launchers but given the choice I would avoid all fighting and concentrate on living. It's a simple, well-proven combo, that Savage...

In a non-arms-use kinda SHTF (say, long term rapid coastal flooding) where I'm going to be making my way to a bug-out/INCH, do I really want to be toting a longarm that can't be concealed? You'll immediately be 'that guy', and what authority exists (homegrown or otherwise) will immediately focus on YOU.

Hardly grey man.

I'd look at the Sub2k or pistol, but more likely the sub2k being a carbine and all.

...

If it's classic zombies/foreign military/etc, and concealment isn't a question, well, then a more combat-oriented weapon like the ARs might be my go-to.

If it's more of a 'loss of external support' kinda thing (say, nuclear war and somehow Bangor getting vaporized didn't get us) .. and I don't ever expect resupply, and there's no large animal threat, might want to look at one of the black powder or 22s.

When I see those words written…”grey man” I immediately ask myself, has the writer been subjected to cold fear and shock? Could he or she really have meant “ashen?” You have a valid point though, either way. Although I think the only real possible answer is “the one that I have,” and since the rule does not allow one to discuss the potential growth rate of the “dire straits accumulative effect,” I like the options the O/U offer. It comes apart easily as well, if one were overly concerned with appearing at worse –neutral – during their long, halftime walk.

Strategy of blending in with other folks in a refugee situation, versus standing out.

can't cover the bases adequately without a concealable (taken down) silenced military style .223 autorifle (with a .22 lr conversion unit) and a pocket pistol, preferably 9mm. You have to have something with real reach, power, and penetration, and you need something that can be readily accessed from concealment, while wearing a pack (with your rifle taken down and stowed in said pack). Much of your stuff can be rolled up in your shelter/sleep gear and used as a pack frame/pad, leaving much more room inside of your pack for stuff that's small, hard, easily lost, very valuable, or which you dont want seen.


Do as Longy sez....
