    Great lil' truck gun

    And I mean ''lil''

    The Marlin Papoose - a take down semi with the same basic action as Marlin 60. Here assembled but the knurled ring at rear of barrel unscrews (for those unfamiliar) so as to remove barrel - and so whole deal goes in a small zippered case. No pics of that but - very compact.

    For some wierd reason the gun is supplied with 7 round mags - I mean 7??!!! I got an extra 7 but also a ten. Keep all those stoked and with the gun. Had it now quite a while.

    OK - mouse caliber but still handy to have tucked under rear seat. I sometimes have a heavier rifle on board but this one ''lives'' in the truck. Not overly expensive and a great plaything as well as IMO a rather practical item to have along for all rides.

    (Eats Stingers just fine!)

    I have considered one of those. I like the idea of a takedown .22.

    My truck gun is still my 1894 for various reasons, the cheif one being I can openly carry it and walk along the rural Texas highways without drawing undue attention.

    P95, That's a slick little rifle. Seven quick .22LR's can do a lot of damage, especially with the accuracy of a rifle (one for each eye, one for each nostril, and three in the mouth!) That ought to teach 'em not to mess with you.

    For me itís a .223 H&R with a 16x variable power scope. A 94 Win.30-30 would be as good for different reasons. Thatís when I lived in NYS.

    Now my truck gun is whatever handgun I am carrying. My prized rifles are just gun safe Queens now .

    What about KelTec's Carbine in 9mm or .40 caliber? Anyone here have one? It folds in half. I've been thinking about one for a while.

    Army - the sub 2000 appeals to me too - so compact. I have seen and fired one and overall it ain't bad at all. It is still ''hovering'' on my list

    OD - plum color eh - no matter - as long as internals work right

    It's fantastic shooter Chris
    You cannot re-blue post-64, Model 94s without plating them first, the cast receivers (1964 thru 1982) will just not take a conventional bluing.
