Hi Craig,

It would be great to hunt with a handgun (light, compact) but since I live in Canada it just will not happen as there are strict laws here on handgun ownership and use, with serious penalties.

The T/C Contender is a great system, and very versatile with the interchangeable barrels.

I have found the Marlin Papoose to be the next best thing in a compact small game firearm. I also use a Savage Model 24 Campers Companion break action .22LR/20ga that makes a good small utility gun when larger game may be on the program (e.g. .20 ga slugs for deer or black bear).

Take care,

Mike

The Savage 24C, a dang fine camp/camping firearm IMHO. Great for small game, with medium sized big game capability. A nice "survival" kit firearm, with the 10-.22lr and 2-20ga shell storage in the butt.

Wouldn't the Papoose be a restricted firearm in Canada because the barrel is shorter than 18"? I don't own any guns but I've done a fair bit of reading.

Hi Hacksaw,

Because the Marlin Papoose is a rimfire (not a centrefire) and the barrel was factory made in the short length is is not classed as a restricted firearm in Canada. You do still need a normal Possession/Acqusition Licence to purchase it.

I mail-ordered mine from SIR in Winnipeg http://www.sirmailorder.ca/show_prod.php...c867c0801fd8e36

Nice site. US Survival Rifle for $209. Might be time to get my license.

Hi Hacksaw,

Worthwhile doing some research on the web comparing the US Survival Rifle AR7 to the Marlin Papoose Takedown, there are good points to both and lots of opinions to help your decision.

SIR was recently purchased by Cabela's and the new flyer I recieved in the mail had some Cabela's items in it. This may provided an easier and more cost effective method to access some US made products.

Today I ran 300 rounds of CCI Min-Mag HP thorough my Papoose. With a cheap scope it was shooting consistent 3 groups at 50 yards- 10 round clips in fewer than 8 seconds. The gun is smooth.

Hello all,
I'm new to all this and just got a Papoose with mags.

Question .. does anyone recommend a scope for this, even if just for play. Yeah I know it'll screw up the bag and barrel pouch idea.
And if so, a preferred one that doesn't break the bank.

Just got the 70ss, only one available new for me.

years ago, when building a 10-22 for the Sportsman's Team Challenge I had the opportunity to talk via phone to Jim Clark Sr. For you trying to sort out different brands of .22 ammunition, he suggested that you shoot at least 50 rounds before shooting for groups...that it took that many shots between different batches or manufacturers for the chamber to "seal"..for the blowback gases and residue to fill around the cartidge...
