be what if shtf. That's PURE bs. You can't know whether or not you'll need a concealable rifle, or a can, so best have them to start with. I DO know that only an idiot is in open country in daylight, or uses a noisy gun, when a quiet one is an option, when hostile men are in the area. I also know that only an idiot "thinks" that there's more deer than livestock, or that .22's can't brain livestock or deer, or take dogs. Only an idiot sticks himself with HAVING to do any one thing. The foot mobile man can always ride, stay in place, etc. The guy who NEEDSa 4wd full of stuff CAN'T go foot mobile. So he's less versatile and that's bad if shtf.
