I would take the 22 that shoots 308. When the SHTF, why screw around with such a small caliber?

My 10/22. Had it for 20+ years, 1000's down the pipe. Sat for 10 years out in the garage. Occasionally jams but I've never cleaned it...

I am always a fan of a tube fed, bolt action, .22 like the XT-22. A friend has one in SS and shoots great. I love my Rem 582. I don't think I would ever own a 10-22.

10/22 Takedown. The bag can also hold a pistol and extra mags. Pick a short scope because some scopes when mounted wont fit in the bag.

Bought the 10/22, had the bolt microslicked and have an extra light carbon bull barrel and light thumbhole stock coming. Even lighter, more accurate, and never have to oil it. Shoud be perfect!

It depends on the mission.

Because the OP asked only about 22lr, if I am not constrained by size or weight, I would choose a Ruger 10/22 or a Marlin Glenfield 60.

If size and weight were a major consideration, I would choose a Henry AR-7. If I were on foot, the Henry AR-7 is the one rifle that I would keep until the very end.

I bet I'm the only one here with...

My good ole Western Field .22lr. It was my first gun as a kid and I can't tell you how many thousands of rounds I've put down the tube of that thing. I know it like the back of my hand and EXACTLY where it shoots at any distance. It was made back in the 60s or 70s and has been dead on reliable.

I think you have your answer it's obviously Ruger 10 22, with possibility of having the extras like stainless or Synthetic stock. I don't know if that have all the bugs out on the take down version but that would definitely appeal to me if I was going for a long distance travel on foot I've heard bad things about the AR 7 Reliability wise after extended use so I would probably stick with what I know and grew up with the 10-22.
bolt actions are good but if your dinner depends on it, and it may in a very bad situation. I would go with a quick follow up 22 semi auto rather than risk your only meal for days or weeks. besides if it has to double duty as a defensive weapon you definitely want the firepower of the semi auto and quick reloads.

My AR-7 jams constantly. Very big disappointment.
Nothing wrong with my 10/22, great gun and excellent choice.
However, my 795 is by far my favorite .22 rifle. Could be because it was my first rifle.

Food for thought, I can hit anything with my Competition Mark III that I can hit with a 10/22.

Kind of a PITA to reload though.
yes.. reloading is a pain.. without one of these:

If only given only ONE choice for a .22 rifle for SHTF, hands down the Ruger 10/22 Takedown. Especially valuable for bugging out, possibly on foot. I want firearms I can conceal, and the TD will fit in my backpack easily. Add a Glock, 500 rounds of Mini Mags and several mags of handgun ammo, I can carry water, food, and other supplies, and still have a viable defense system while traveling on the road. Bugging in, the ARs and .308 rifles will be the go to firearms, but if forced to hit the crowded roads, the TD is tailor-made for this situation.

I would stick with the basic. Nothing fancy. Ruger 10/22 Take Down has it own disadvantages. TD barrel and standard 10/22 barrels are not interchangeable. Upgrades are expensive too. I would stay with the standard 10/22 and put in a folding stock. My SHTF rifle and pistol of choice would be Rugger 10/22 with folding stock and SR22 pistol.

I'll take a marlin mod 60 over ruger any day. Basically it's a tack driver with a big person stock. Hold open last shot, holds 14 rounds and cheaper to boot. Also the stock sights are 100% better than the 1022.

For small game a 10/22 works perfectly, however if you have plans to use subsonic for def/silent hunting the action makes too much noise. For my money I'd go with a solid bolt option for subsonic ammo and a small rugger revolver or a MKI/MKII/MK22/45 side arm for close up game where follow up shots are important. Think rabbits/squirrel/frogs in packs.

If you want dinner use a CZ bolt gun. If you want to take follow up shots buy a 10/22 unless the follow up shot jams then you have no dinner after you miss the first few times.

Ill put my CZ up against ANY 10/22 for pinks any day of the week.


Crappy walmart ammo in side gusting wind.


More wind and same crappy walmart ammo......

KIDD isnt 10/22 its a custom like a GAP is an AR10 custom. Like for Like. If the 10/22 cost $325 I will go up against it. Im sure with some $50 dollar match ammo my gun will shoot one hole clusters. You wanna run the KIDD Ill run my Annie.....
