The One Rifle No One Should Be Without

Drum roll , please. The .22 caliber rifle! Why such a small caliber? Because these usually cheap little rifles that use cheap ammo have so many uses that once you have one, you’d never part with it. They are great guns to get that raccoon in your chicken coop, nail that big fat squirrel, and can even be used for self defence at a closer range. A good old bolt action will still blow bullets down range even in seriously bad shape. If battling everyone’s favorite zombies, .22s can be used as cover fire saving the bigger calibers for getting the bigger job done.

Bolt action .22s are some of the most rugged rifles on the planet. They are simple rifles without a lot of parts and easy to maintain. Their biggest downfall is that they are slower to fire because the bolt has to be worked before it can shoot the next round. Even so, for a ’round the farm’ rifle, they can’t be beat.

10-22 rifles are the semi-auto version. They are another very dependable little rifle. Though a little more complicated to take apart and put together, they fire so much faster than their predecessor. Bunnies are no match for this rifle as long as you have good aim.

The Ruger 10-22 Takedown has got to be one of the coolest rifles I have seen. It is light and can be popped in half for easy stashing in the car. Like the other two, it is a dependable little rifle. However, you would need to practice taking it apart and putting it bak together to be able to get it ready fast. Its still fairly simple compared to many other different types of rifles and doesn’t have any more bells and whistles other than the ability to popped in half. If you’re a long ways from home when shtf, this little rifle will get you back to your HQ.

These little rifles will always have a place in my heart. Though small in size and caliber, the uses are endless. May God grant you all peace.
