So here I am in Florida with hurricane season just around the corner and I am trying to decide on a rifle to give me a little better range than my Mossberg and Benelli shotguns. I'm not wanting to spend 1k on an AR and though I am considering either an AK or a SKS, I have serious concerns about overpenetration here in the subdivision that we live in. So I have been reading and researching and one rifle keeps coming up over and over.... the Ruger 10/22. I know that a .22lr is a great pot-filler during hard times, but I'm not sure that I can go there for self defense. However a 10/22 with a good scope, 25 round mags and the ability to put alot of lead in the air with no recoil and fast follow up's does have a certain appeal.... So what does everybody think? Is a 10/22 a good subdivision SHTF weapon? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
