Probably most of us own several guns, long and hand. On the topic of staying in good health with the option of having only one to carry; ammo, cleaning supplies etc. What is your choice of caliber. Yeah I'm talking "batman in the boondocks". I think for my region of the country I'd feel comfortable with the 22 Magnum. Jacketed bullet, inexpensive, light of weight. Not too loud. I can carry a lot more ammo compared to centerfire. I'd be mostly concerned of ferral dogs. Maybe something for the cook pot. Probably a bolt action. Simple. It's long been the poachers gun. Wondered what some others thought?
