For a survival situation which do you think would be a better gun. I am wanting to buy a mid caliber gun for deer hunting as well as a survival gun if god forbid The SHTF. Since I am on the cheap I am debating between a marlin 30-30 or a sks. I like the idea of a lever gun because if there is ever a missfire or something of the like you just cycle the action again and ready to do also there is less moving parts to break. You also dont have the black gun syndrome. However you have a higher ammo cost as well as larger ammo with the 30-30. With the semi-auto you have a faster rate of fire as well as quicker reloading and the ammo is smaller and cheaper. What is everyone's opinion?
