Remington 870 for a camp gun, My Dan Wesson .357 for a woods/trail gun . IF I had a lever action in .357 to go with my Dan Wesson revolver perfect match IMO.

Hunting rifle (7mm Mag) and Bow (Mathew Monster 7.0)
Side arm 1911 when I am out hunting or at camp.
When I get my Coonan 357, it will replace my 1911 as my camp and hunting side arm.

Something cheap, that you won't mind getting a little rusty. Something tough and powerful. Like a cut down single shot. $50 sounds like a awesome camp gun.

Hear that! I don't know if I'd stop bringing the M6 though. I might have to do away with some other gear to fit the lever gun in the weight limit. I can't wait till the kids are old enough to pack with gear like a sherpa, lol.

I bought 3 H&R/NEF single shots, in various conditions, for around 150-170 total.
Barrels were cut down to a handy but legal length, the front sight was reinstalled and a HiViz fiber optic sleeve was slipped over the barrel. A set of sling swivel studs and a slip on neoprene shell holder later and bang, a perfect camp gun that doesn't get screwed up if the gun goes over when your canoe tips (having a line attached through the rear sling swivel stud keeps it from being lost in one of the famous internet "boating accidents").

ETA- I gifted the guns to my brothers and a good friend. I have yet to make one of my own.

Don't go camping much but it would be my Norinco MAK 90. It should be enough.

yeah ive wanted one for years maybe THAT will be my next buy cant beat something that can take .38 special or .357 in a snubby,regular length revolver and a lever action long gun..and for the most part with me being in PA and nothing bigger than small to medium size black bears(yes now and then they WILL get a 600+ pounder around but thats RARE) .357 out of a lever action and even a 4" revolver is good. But till I get that the 870 pretty much out to 100 yds with a rifled slug barrel is a jack of all trades from pests(with low brass shot) to eating/food(with regular hunting rounds) to self defense with buckshot out to 40 yds or so, and then slugs out to 100 yds .

It varies, depending on my whim and how much hiking is involved.
Last time it was a Ruger 10/22 Take Down and a Glock 20. Next time it could be a 260 lightweight bolt gun and the LC9, next time it may be my AK bullpup and a G27 ... whatever.

What I don't have but keep looking at, is a Browning Lever Action Take Down in 243. Intriguing. I know I want one. Question is when to click and order one.

Truck camping I usually find myself with a Marlin 1894 and a 4-5/8" Super Blackhawk in .44 mag. Always seem to have a 10/22 as well.

Backpacking is a different story - usually just the Blackhawk in .45 Colt or the Super Blackhawk.

Right now I hike and camp with a Kel Tec Pf9, but I'm shopping around for a lightweight compact .40 or 45, like the S&W Shield in 40 or the Springfield XD-S in .45.

While most of the time I'm just worried about 2 legged predators, my only other concern is if a Coyote, feral dog, or black bear doesn't "get" when you tell it to and decides you smell nice and it wants a taste.
