I was around 9 when I shot a lever gun the last time and it was only a cheap no-name 22 that could shot around a corner. I haven't done enough shooting with them to know enough about them to be comfortable with one as a survival gun.

I'm a south-paw and prefer a lever over a bolt.

I can shoot with either hand, but I prefer to use my right due to the frequency of right hand ejection.

If I gotta choose only one, its my Henry .22 lever action. Tons of ammo can be carried and I can eat and protect with it.

I'm thinking the same thing. It doesn't have jams either.

22LR are not good on large game and a squirrel and handful of roots a day don't work for anyone over 200 lbs.

I don't plan on shootin' elephants. I'm thinking I would be eating a lot of rabbits because they are more meal size and I wouldn't have any way of storing a larger animal like a deer.

You would eat rabbits after you know what bears have used them for?

You make jerky like the mountain man did 100 years ago to store and carry . The hides you can use them for a 1000 things . There will be days you won't see any game to shoot at and you willl be eating yellow snow .

The 86 , 92 and 94 are all three the same design .

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winchester_rifle

Winchester Model 1886

The Model 1886 continued the trend towards chambering heavier rounds, and had an all-new and considerably stronger locking-block action than the toggle-link Model 1876. It was designed by John Moses Browning, who had a long and profitable relationship with Winchester from the 1880s to the early 1900s. William Mason made some improvements to Browning's original design. In many respects the Model 1886 was a true American express rifle, as it could be chambered in the more powerful black powder cartridges of the day, such as the .45-70 Government (chambering a rifle for the popular .45-70 had been a goal of Winchester for some time). The 1886 proved capable of handling not only the .45 Gov't but also .45-90 and the huge .50-110 Express "buffalo" cartridges,[7][8] and in 1903 was chambered for the smokeless high-velocity .33 WCF. In 1935 Winchester introduced a slightly modified M1886 as the Model 71, chambered for the more powerful .348 Winchester cartridge.

Winchester Model 1892
Winchester returned to its roots with the Model 1892, which, like the first lever-action guns, was primarily chambered for shorter, lower-pressure handgun rounds. The Model 1892, however, incorporates a much stronger Browning action (based on the larger M1886) than the earlier Henry-derived arms of the 1860s and 1870s. 1,004,675 Model 1892 rifles were made by Winchester, and although the company phased them out in the 1930s, replicas are still being made by the Brazilian arms maker, Rossi, and by Chiappa Firearms, an Italian factory. In its modern form, using updated materials and production techniques, the Model 1892's action is strong enough to chamber high pressure handgun rounds, such as .357 Magnum, .44 Magnum, and .454 Casull. The Winchester '92 was commonly used in Hollywood Western movies and TV shows, as a substitute for the Winchester '66 and '73 models, because it has a similar appearance, and was cheaper and easier to acquire.[9]

20 gauge pump. For me a Mossberg(grew up with one). Being a rifle guy it is hard to say a shotgun but I can do everything with a 20 gauge. I only say a 20 over a 12 because at the lower end I gain something for small game and at the upper end I don't lose enough to worry about (longer range shots on birds)

Slugs for big game (and with a rifled slug barrel a 150yard shot is possible). Buckshot for short range protection against 2 and 4 legged predators. And birdshot for small game and birds.

Its a game getter of big and small game and that is what survival is about. Plus it makes a good self-defense gun.

A 22lr semi-auto would have been my second choice and it still makes for a good first choice. Your just limiting yourself to not taking game birds and being on the very low end for personal protection.

22LR.

A 511 Rem w 2-7 Leupold and a High Std Trophy along w a brick or more of said 22LR. If'n I had a 10-22 would be ok but wouldn't or won't spend $ just to replace the 511. If I gotta have just one it will be the HS Trophy.

Have killed 8 feral hogs from 50 to 225 lbs w the HS. Lots of eatin smokin and jerkin there.

Will keep the flintlock in the dry and hidden for when all the ammo is gone.

If I buy my lead bullets heads a 1000 rds cost me $125 to make . If I cast my own bullets I can cut the cost down to about $50 for a 1000 . How much do those 22 LR and 22 Mag cost you a 1000 .

I just ordered 1000 at @ about $240.00
Not Cheap when you pay $9.99 for 50 and shipping.
I'm making my 38s for 18 cents each and that is with copper coated 125 grain bullets.
Cut that to 9 Cents when I cast my own lead bullets.
