    So, I had been for some time looking at a survival option reguarding my rifles. I found the Ruger take down to me simply a Ruger 10/22 that you can take apart. I don't really see necessity for it. Its not really any lighter. My options came down to the Marlin Papoose for the Henry AR 7. I wasn't really ready to buy. I resolved that if I happened upon one or the other my choice would be made in the moment. About 2 weeks ago while perusing the shelves at Dicks Sporting Goods, I happened to mentioned in passing to the sales clerk that I found that Henry AR 7 to be a very interesting rig. The salesperson asked me if I would you like to see it as they had one in the stock room. It had been back there for a while. Well, we made the decision for me. I walked out with it. It's extremely accurate. I am pleased with it but if I came across the Papoose first, I would think I'd be equally pleased.[​IMG]

    Congrats. Nice little rifle. Henry makes good stuff. I owned an AR7 Yeats ago.
    It's a fun little rifle to shoot.

    My son has a Papoose but he won't part with it. They are pretty hard to find.

    Yea, they are hard to find. I did find the AR7 to be a bit clunky to shoot when switching between my model 60. It's like riding in a car with no shocks and then riding in a town car. Both will get you there and are very accurate but my model 60 is a pleasure to handle and shoot. The AR7 is definitely a survival, in a pinch rifle.
