Default 1 lb. Pack Rifle...and Fishing Pole!

Very interesting survival/hiking tool. Single-shot bolt action, weighs in at just shy of 16oz and converts into a fishing pole. Not bad. Wonder how she shoots.

The main reason I would want to carry a pack rifle would be to protect me from critters of two or four legs. This thing is lightweight, but unless you are being attacked by a single squirrel, I don't see the value of it.

I bought one of my sons a Chipmunk rifle when he turned 10. Everyone who ever shot that gun wanted one like it. I think it was a way better choice than this one.

Well, nothing is perfect. But I still think it's an interesting concept. Certainly unique.
