People all have a different idea of what is needed for a survival situation. Some people believe in a shtf situation they need quality hunting firearms. For a survival situation I personally don't agree.
Yes, a person should have hunting firearms, but if a person thinks they are going to run out and start hunting in a shtf time, they might be sorely surprised to find that everybody and their dog has the same exact idea & can not survive off of what is available (supply and demand...)
As I mentioned, everybody has a different idea of what the right answer is for a survival situation. I think that a person should be very well stocked on food supplies (how much is up to you); and their weapon of choice should be for defensive purposes against looters and thieves that are possibly armed.
Some people will benefit from the hunting type of survival, and I don't discard the idea. I think a person should be prepared to hunt if need be, but have a surplus of supplies for a shtf situation.
Anyways, I'm rambling... I do enjoy talking about topics like this.
IMO, choose a rifle for defensive purposes first, and then look to see what would work well for hunting. IMHO a shotgun should be around, as well as a semi auto rifle.

After further thought, I find myself agreeing with jercamp45. An SKS is dependable, affordable, and ammo is plentiful and relatively cheap. If I could only have one rifle, and didn't want to spend a lot, SKS would definately be the choice.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

Narrowed Down the List...
An Armalite AR15 (A4) (flat top) with an EO Tech Hologram Sight has caught my eye. I am now searching the I-net and several local gun shops to find the best price...
I think that this is going to fill the defensive needs...but I'm still open for comments or suggestions.
The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.
