A survival firearm can be the difference between having meat to eat and becoming a vegetarian.
Most often, survival rifles are chosen because their larger caliber bullets will inflict the most amount of damage. Most hunters and survivalist will use a rifle to ensure that what they shoot goes down. This means you want at least one rifle in your survival gear.
"Expecting a carjacker or rapist or drug pusher to care that his possession or use of a gun is unlawful is like expecting a terrorist to care that his car bomb is taking up two parking spaces." --Joseph T. Chew
Again, it is important to have enough ammunition. If you are considering taking a handgun, you will want at least 1000 rounds per person. Rifles will require at least 5,000 rounds per person, depending upon the style of rifle.
"An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life." --Robert A. Heinlein

When you are looking at firearms for survival, you will need to know something about rifles. There are several types of survival rifles from the shotgun style to the pump action rifle. In other words, the amount of ammo it can hold in a chamber is important, as is the barrels.
You can find shotguns with two or even three barrels. This means you load the weapon with three shots. A survival rifle, on the other hand, will usually have some type of magazine with the ability to hold a large number of cartridges for continuous shots.
"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." --Thomas Jefferson
The danger you might encounter will determine the types of firearms for survival you will wish to carry. If you are in country with large, dangerous wildlife, you want a weapon that will take down the target. Speak with a weapons specialist about the types of survival rifles you should have with you.
