Great choices.

The Marlin 60's are an excellent gun.

I just hate cleaning them.

I can keep the peace and defend the helpless inside any stadium used as a shelter for a hypothetical Katrina style apocalypse and with a simple 10/22

a 10/22 is so good its hard to pick another i too have an ar-7 and with my ramline mags it works great but i still do not trust it

a repeating firearm is a must because a follow up shot is lfe and death

so any tube or mag fed bolt action,lever,pump should be fine and can use longs and shorts better than a selfloader

ive got a few 22s all have strengths and weaknesses

my stainless marlin 60 is ok but its plastic is brittle the triggerguard on mine is plastic and has little cracks

i guess the one i would like to have the most
would be my 6 7/8" mark2

I have both 10-22 and an AR-7 my Dad bought in 1980. The 10-22 wins in most categories, but what the AR-7 gives up in accuracy, it gains in compactness and weather tolerance. The take-down 10-22 would be a clear winner.

The ar-7s have been made by I think 3 different companies now. The original armilite ones were good then charter started making them and those are the ones I keep reading about being crap but now Henry makes them and they’ve stepped up the quality. I’m quite happy with mine.

Mine is one of the Charter Arms AR-7's (1980). Only issue I ever had was the trigger was slow to reset after 20 years. I took the side plate off of the receiver and the fire control was full of dry white crud. Cleaned and lubed (only do this if you need to do some serious swearing) it works fine now. Other than that it has been great fun.

I WOULD trust my life to my MK-III with CCI Minimags, if stored in moderate condifions... It's my Garage-gun...

No you're correct. I've got one and the main reason they'd jam, usually, was that the shooter instinctively uses the mag as a palm rest, which can cause feed issues.

On mine, I put a piece of high density foam in the mag well, then made a hand guard that butts up to the barrel screw, and is attached to the barrel with Velcro. I put Velcro on the butt stock so the HG can stow there when the rifle is in the float mode. Works slick, looks cool.

But I'll be going with a 10/22 in a TacStar, hooded front, peep rear, a few mags. PAX

I agree with the 10/22 and lower priced variable optic and quality CCI stinger ammo. There have been untold numbers of deer poached with 22 and I've yet to hear about anyone shot with a 22 who didn't want to find a E.R. pronto. Something with iron back up sights would be absolute for a rifle put in this role.

Rossi RB22. Light (4lbs) Simple and reliable (bolt action). Accurate (bolt action). Not very expensive ($118 on sale).

What kind of sights do you have on the AR-7?

My AR-7 has proved 100% reliable over almost 40 years except with hollowpoints. I switched over to solids, or stingers, and it runs great even from an old 25 round Ramline mag.

The older Armalite and Charter Arms AR-& will float indefinitely, the Henry's with the extra mags and change to floatation material will only float like 5 minutes. Once the air bubbles out of the stock they will sink.

I have a takedown 10/22, I also have an M&P 15 22. The M&P will shoot anything I load it with without jamming, breaks down and prior to an emergency situation, a lot more fun to shoot.

While part of my owning guns is for SHTF scenarios, I don't put THAT much thought into it. However, wouldn't what you said above sort of depend on where you live?

Perhaps counter-intuitively, I feel like those of us living in the suburbs that abut undeveloped areas might not have it that bad. Especially in liberal NorCal areas. I don't think I live in an area awash with gun-people so I think I would not have that much competition for small game hunting.

Probably there are more people with guns around me than I think, but still, I think game is more likely to vanish (or move out of reach) out in the sticks where there is a far more well-armed populace in general.

I think at least in the initial stages of SHTF, my family would be more at risk from me bringing home "bad" (diseased) kills rather than me bringing home no kills.

I still have my Remington 572 Fieldmaster pump that my Dad bought me in the late 50's. I did take the old scope off of it. Should get a new Simmons or equal just so I can see better.
I have Henry's, Rossi's, 10/22's as well, but I think I would pick up the Fieldmaster if I had to choose one.

So lets say you are a family of 4. That is 6000 calories a day in mild weather to hunt and fish for. Double that if it cold outside. Just how may cats are you going to kill. There isn't enough calories walking and swimming around to keep you and your family alive. Its just a numbers game and it doesn't add up.
