The One Gun Solution

Recommended Posts

Today we have a solution that those in black Powder had to a degree and that is use a single firearm to shoot pellets buck shot and a single ball.

today a break action single shot shotgun or even a SXS or an over & under can that can accept a chamber conversion and I would go with a rifled long conversion tube, in a heavy pistol caliber and 22 rim fire as it can fire all the lengths of 22 rim fire cartridges except 22 magnum. With the over & under or SXS or side by side you can have one barrel with a shot shell or slug and the other with a rim fire or pistol caliber as far as accuracy it would not be like a target rifle but if it will put it a 8 inch circle @ 100 that's meat on the table.

Another scenario if you had access to the pistol calibers they list and no pistol you could use them in your shotgun.

I can't say I like the offerings today for an over and under rifle and shotgun combo, first problem is most are 20 ga my only reason is that 20ga chambering is  1/5th of the total numbers of gauges out there so in hard times the number of shells would be damn few to none were as 12 ga  is abundant and still used in the military and police agencies.

I wish someone would sell a 5.56 adapter for a 12 ga or a 30-30 or 7.62 X39 I remember when gunsmiths would make a shotgun into a double rifle I seen a few in 45-70. It would be nice to see a real caliber over a 12ga so you could shoot birds and have the option to take large game or defend yourself against it.

forget it. Noisy, single shot, lacking in range or penetration. It will get you killed by the first guy who hears you, has a rapidfire repeater and knows to use cover from 100m away. You'd be WAY ahead to just have a homemade silencer on a Marlin papoose takedown .22lr autorifle.

there is no one gun, cause you need a pistol that fits in a front pants pocket holster and you need a fighting rifle that offers a ..22lr conversion unit, a silencer, luminous iron sights, a scoped option, (see thru mount, QD, return to zero base,  chromed chamber, dark, rust-resistant finish, a clear sightline over the silencer, takedown concealment in your pack, lw, which fires the GI Rd and can be handled well with just one arm.   A shorty AR is the only gun that offers all those many requisites.
