New gun, thoughts...?(Posted by VolsFan24 on 10/9/12 at 8:48 am)
I try and get a couple every year. So i was looking for something a little different for myself for christmas this year and i ran across this little guy. Savage m42 which is a 22mag/410 over and under. Looks go be a sweet squirrel gun. What does the ob think?
VolsFan, Many years ago I tried really hard to buy a Savage combo gun. Thought it'd be the perfect gun for squirrel hunting by yourself w/ a dog. I was looking for a 20 guage/22 LR combo. I wanted to mount a scope on mine. Ended up NOT getting one because I'd heard from others it was sometimes really difficult using the shotgun barrel in combination w/ a scope. Guess one could try "see though" rings, but I've never really liked them. Although a shingle shot break action gun chambered in 22 Mag should be able to shoot 22 LR's, they sometimes don't do it very accurately.
