I was talking to an old timer up here and he was telling me there is a survival rifle which is a 22 that breaks down into a tiny compact case inside the
stock and is water proof.

A quick search I found this

 Now that is something that sounds right up my alley from what I can tell ..

BigDanInTX:
I have read that these are hit or miss.  If you can find the OLD version before Henry took them over, they are the old school Air Force Pilot survival rifle and are supposedly super good.

Many others recommend the Papoose from Marlin as an alternative.

Serellan:
If you can find and afford one, the Savage 24C is a great gun.

My grandfather had this in his plane in Alaska (in AK, you are required to keep a gun in your plane).

It's 22 (I can't remember right now if it's 22LR or Magnum) over 20 guage.

Best of both worlds and breaks down easy into it's own case.









Beetle:
If you go to the video and photo section and look at the picture of the bug out gear I carry in  my truck there is a picture of one. http://thesurvivalpodcast.com/forum/index.php/topic,233.msg1770.html#msg1770 They are cool as a novelty item and in a pinch they are better than nothing, but they are not reliable or accurate I would save your money or get a Ruger 10/22. Hope I did the link right I am a computer tard.

 What problems are there with the henry and when did henry take them over ? That gun is an unbelievable 2.5 pounds, that's awesome. The Marlin might be cool, but it weighs twice that
