What do you guys think about a .22 cal air rifle as a survival weapon? After considering this I feel, though inferior in power, it may just be the most ideal weapon for survival considering you have a more powerful version. The "ammo" is cheaper, weighs much less, takes up much less room, is quieter, and isn't really a firearm, though I think that depends on what state you reside in. I am no expert, and in fact am a bit naive in this regard, but I think it has enough power to take any small game out to 50 yds or so. You lose the ability to take medium game, though any rimfire isn't great at that task unless you can get a clean shot, though there's still no gaurantees. Although windy days may really effect your abilities to keep on target. There isn't really a need for a cleaning kit is there? Just brainstorming.
