I have a Savage 24 O/U 22/410. My first two years in Alaska I lived in a little cabin about 3 miles North of Healy. I was laid off in the winter and there was no work what so ever.
I pretty much fed my family with that little gun, it's probably one of the last guns I'd let go (not that I will sell or trade any of them).
I'm not into SHTF crap, but if I had to pick one of my guns for survival this would be the top of my list.
