My Remington 870 shotgun for first scenario, and my S&W M&P 15 for a teotwawki situation.

The 12 gauge would handle anything from squirrels to grizzly bears, and the AR15 type rifles would provide lightweight yet adequate protection with lots of lightweight ammo.

I WANTED to say one of my Shotty's, probably the 12ga PA459 TR for the ability to "pick up" extra ammo easier than 20ga. BUT The ammo would weigh a lot, could carry much more 22 ammo, so that is the way I went, but as I said I would prefer a shotty.

The OP stated during times of relative security and prosperity which is why I said the shotgun. Theoretically you wouldn't need to carry a lot of shotgun shells such as in a teotwawki situation. wink

Oops, I completely forgot/missed the times of relative security and prosperity part and zoned in on the TEOTWAWKI part.

In light of this "Revelation", and NOT needing a trailer full of ammo, probably (although it does seem sort of counter productive to other posts I've made) a shotgun. More versatile, lending itself from tree rodent sized critters all the way to Grizz with slugs.


Now for a TEOTWAWKI situation where resupply may not be possible and needing to carry what we need to survive probably the lowly 22. It WILL gather game when needed, all the way to deer size. People deterrent, no not the greatest, but you could run off bad guys if you couldn't hide or run.
