Lets say you were dropped in the hostile indian teretory living in the woods in the early 1700's and you could take a pack horse with supplies and ammunition what firearms would you want to take?

Now that I re-read the post "hostile indian territory" , I'd like to change my mind to the 223 auto also.

Best all around... .308 semi-auto, very accurate, of course.

Was tempted by the 12 ga. long barrel but I do not want those Indians to get that close. Then the .223 semi-auto crossed my mind but I wanted a little bit more knock down power so I went with the .308 semi-auto.

The Henry was invented in 1860 (Lever Action) The Gatling gun was invented in 1861 ( patented in 1862). Henrys idea of cartridges was instrumental in the invention of both. Winchester took ownership of Henry in 1866 due to defaulted bank loans that they had invested into Henry.

Was the carbine ever made in 30-06?  Thought that was only the Garand.  Carbine was in .30 carbine.  But I could be wrong.

How about this??? And it's a "Squeezer Special".  I've fired one...very accurate, recoil is moderate.

Pick as many as you want you are not limited to one only. Pay no mind to what did not exist then.  You can select what you wish.

I'd say in that scenario......I'd want to be able to pack as much ammo as possible, so I would go with a good bolt action .22 magnum.
 
My next choice would be a bolt action .223 . After killing 5 deer with one this year I grew to really appreciate the capabilities of a .223 with good bullets !
