I feel that there more of a novility then anything I had one for a while but found it a bit delicute and prone to breakage where the stock joins the action other people that I have talked to that owned one agree so it wouldent be my first choice for a survivle rifle or even a hunting gun if your looking for a true survivle rifle that can be stowed in a small space you might look at the Kel tec 223 folding rifle it my new survivle rifle more punch and stows in almost a small a space

Hey Troop, get you a good .22 pistol and get good with it, and you'll never look back. I bought a Browning Buckmark last year and put a red dot on it and love it. You carry it in a holster, it weighs about 2 lb., and you won't be tempted to lean it up against a tree and walk off and forget it (who amongst us HASN'T had to go back and try to remember where the tree was to get our rifle?)

This is my coon getter.As mentioned I like how light weight it is and that it sticks to my hip.It takes a little practice shooting a pistol at night but once you get it down...you will find it's dang near the only way to go!

I have one its a neat gun but can be finicky (spelling?) with ammo. I never use it, I have shot some squirrels with it though.

Tripntroop I've using the AR 15 survival rife for about 20 years and I love it..I've had a few problems with jamming but nothing serious..The rifle I have was made by Charter Arms which I believe is out of business..They are now made by Henry Arms and I'm sure the quality is much better.. :D :D

if you want to survive you better have something that holes more than one bullet.

For years we carried a 22 high Standard [great gun for coon] and for bear hunting we used a 9mm Luger with wad cutters,[shoot right in the neck dead before he hit the ground].but most bears we left in the tree,maybe kill on a year.for meat and lard.

It has been my experience through the years that quite often they will get hung up to use a 22 rifle the 17 caliber has more shock it seems to be a much better caliber we have Placerd shots right between the 2 eyes and still have a lot of fight on the ground. Quite often we have to separate to put the finishing shot . my Stevens 22 works real well but there's been a lot of nites I wish I had a 17
