Default Cricket 22 for survival

As anyone else everythough about buying a cheap 22 like a cricket or a mossberg 702 with a hollow synthetic stock so you can put survival supplies in the stock. I thought about getting one and doing it with an emergency blanket some shells a mag if it's the mossberg some water proof matches and fishing gear just various survival stuff. Any thoughts on this

I've thought about it several times. The only thing is, there already is a survival .22 that breaks down and the entire barrel and everything stores in the butt stock, with a little room left over for the type of items your talking about. Plus, it opens up much easier than having to use a screw driver to remove a butt plate/pad.

That's the thing the gun your talking about has no space left for items. The Henry has to have a screw driver to undo butt to. Just a quick thought. Thinking about trying it only problem is making a paracord strap. it's hard enough for me to make the bracelets. The strap could hold all kinds of things inter twined like knife with sheath like a neck or divers knife. Shell holders. You could also use a Rossi single shot shotgun or rifle. Like matched pair. You can get them in all kinds of calibers

I've thought about a cricket as well, plus if you want there's a kit you can buy that brings the weight all the way down to under a pound. Like 15oz. Its a little spendy but it turns it into an ultra lightweight compact backpacking critter getter. Looks like this,I can get the link if your interested. Its almost ideal if weight and size are of the utmost importance to you

The stock unscrews And you can turn it around and screw it back tight under the barrel

The survival arm of choice? It all depends, Urban or Wilderness? The small light .22s are more of an Urban choice. I served 3 years on a Vol. High Country search and Rescue Unit. This was in some of the most rugged country in the nation. I don't recall every finding anyone who had a special survival firearm. I do recall that the only weapon most survivors had were their handguns. After a fall and lack of food and water extreme cold most had lost thier long arms. The handgun tied to the body most often served to protect thru the long nights when the bears and big cats were on the hunt. A proper handgun for your area in a strong belt and holster rig works.

Titaniumgoat.com seems to be out of business for those Cricket stocks which include a carbon-fiber replacement barrel.
