Default Completing my Zombie Bug Out Kit

No, I don't really think the Zombie Appocolypse is upon us but it is a humorous way to laugh off preparedness with non gun folks...

I am thinking my collection NEEDS a .22lr Revolver and I've never owned one so I'm looking for suggestions.

I'd like it be full size and accurate, 6" to 8" barrel is ok.

I already own all the hi powered stuff like deer rifles, shotgungs, AR's, AK's, Ect,Ect.

My Zombie bag already consists of 2 Ruger 10-22's, 1 scoped and I'd like to Throw in a revolver of the same caliber. Like I said, squirrel at 30 yards accurate is a must, hi cap cylinders would be cool, quick change hi cap cylinders would be even better, and an option to load in a .22 Mag cylinder would be the cats meow.

Thanks,

Tack

Well, my 1st choice would be a Smith but they are exspensive-
The Ruger single sixes are most likely the best choice

Ok, I know the single six can take .22 LR or .22 Mag. Does it actually only hold 6 rounds? I've heard of .22 revolvers holding a lot more ammo but don't recall the manufacturer?

Not a Taurus fan. I'd go with smith, colt, or Ruger first

I have a Heritage Rough Rider that I bought at least 10 years ago. Other than a screw coming loose it has never given me any trouble. I have put thousands of rounds through it. They also have the convertable version with both 22lr and 22mag cylinders. They are well under $200.

Tackleberry, i dont like taurus's semi autos but their revolvers are actually good guns. As for heritage 10+ years ago they were probly good guns but i have shot several new ones and they are not worth the price of the ammo to fire the thing

I realize your looking at a revolver, for several reasons.
But what about the Ruger "Mark xx" models?
Tack drivers (as pistols go), reliable, and older used models can be had relatively cheap.

Just a thought.
