tdgillies Posted July 9, 2015 Share Posted July 9, 2015 These are just my thoughts on firearms in the game to fall inline with the what would likely be scavenged.THE RIFLE:While I love a good .303 Enfield (I am an Australian shooter so I have two) I feel the pain of keeping .303 in stock as these days its becoming a rare ammunition in surplus and rare in commercial form.I think personally that a .303 Enfield would be unlikely to find up north, if we are talking conventional hunting rifles I think a rifle similar to the one on the Rifle Rounds box would be appropriate; a bolt action .308 with iron sights. I would go to say 6 round internal magazine and single load the rounds into the magazine only.NEW ADDITION: A REVOLVER: I have noticed now that I have the survival bow I am using it for hunting and keeping my rifle as a defensive implement. I was thinking that pistols are at their core a defensive item and the implementation of a smaller calibre revolver as a rabbit hunter but defensive tool could be good. I would love to see something like a .38special revolver. You could shoot a rabbit with it, maybe it could kill a wolf in say 2 - 3 shots depending on your aim and likely it will just irritate a bear so you are going to need to be good at landing 3 shots in its face or deviate to your more powerful rifle or be good with the bow.Another dimension to the revolver as a mechanic is when it's by itself you can shoot two handed, but you could hold a Storm Lantern, a Flare or Torch and use it one handed albeit with more sight wobble.What are your thoughts ?
