Episode-88- A Survivalists View of the 22 Long Rifle

Due to a minor family emergency today’s show notes will be very brief at first.  I will back fill them this weekend with some links and resources, etc.  Tune in today to learn all about the 22 long rifle for survival and training uses, good options for several different models and a lot more.

I will also warn you that due to having to use a different application the file size is much larger then usual.

  1. the .22lr is my favorite hands down. I can carry 1000 rounds easily if need be, use it on a wide variety of game (and man if need be), it is very accurate in the forest (my home area is so forested a 100-yard shot is a very long shot), relatively quiet report, and I can shoot it all day using inexpensive and widely available ammo.

  2. A relative of the family was a gov culler for the Parks Dept in Hawaii. His job was to cull the non native Deer, hogs, and goats. He has personally killed thousands of deer, hogs, and goats with a suppressed 10/22 so as not to alarm the park guests. He would brain shoot them. Some of the deer got over 200lbs, and yet a shot to the head rooted them on the spot. The .22 is truly amazing.

  3. I just purchased the Henry U.S. Survival .22LR today. I haven’t had a chance to listen to this episode yet but I’m convinced that the .22LR is a great survival tool. Protection and taking game with a low key profile could be imperitive.

  4. The 22lr gets my vote!Got one myself!

  5. Here’s the link of the guy who did the turkey penetration test at 300 yards. It also has pictures. Just copy and past into your browser.

  6. the .22LR is wonderful tool to have with you in case it came down to packing up and heading to the forest to harvest game. Just as has been stated before, its quiet, is very accurate and lethal out to about 100 yards and beyond and the possibility of carrying a lot of ammunition on you is incredibly valuable. Personally my bail out weaponery is a Mossberg 500, Mossberg 702, and a SW9VE for a sidearm. All of it is very light and carrying ammo in a simple vest is very easy, which is essential if a long distance walk/hike is in the works. Packing 50 shells of different types of shot and slugs, 250 rounds of .22LR and four filled mags for the 9mm is plenty of ammunition to have on one’s person at any given time.

    On the other hand; Very informative show and your presentation of the information is excellent, keep the show’s coming!

  7. Appreciate the helpful info. Thought I’d pass along a link for a group that is working to continue the Rifleman tradition in the U.S.A.
