If there is one gun that everybody should own, my choice is the Henry AR7. This marvelous little rifle comes in .22LR. It can be disassembled and stored in its butt stock. It floats in water assembles or disassembled. It is also a dependable shooter. It takes detachable 8 round magazines. They are light enough and compact enough to be carried in a backpack. You could leave on hidden in a corner of your car’s trunk. All in all, a very good gun for survival purposes.
This gun was originally designed for Air Force pilots to carry with them as they flew off to combat. In the event that they had to bail out of their plane, it was desired that they should have something they could shoot for protection or possibly to get game. It was decided that any gun beats no gun. They decided that the best caliber for this little gun would be the .22.
The AR7 was designed by Armalite around 1959. Down through the years they have been made by several manufacturers--some good, some not so good. Henry is the manufacturer today and this company prides themselves for making quality products. And, every fiber is made in America!
I have handled these before. They handle nicely and seem to shoot every time you pull the trigger. As I said before: “Everybody should have one!”
