Packable squirrel weapon?
Need a packable (inside a 3,000 cubic inch pack) weapon that can be pulled out and used for squirrel for those day hunts for deer when you only see the little critters moving. I am in parallel considering gallery loads for my 270 to do this but I'd like feedback from this group on an entirely separate arm.
What I know of, so far, and what I think of these options, includes;
Marlin Papoose - If the scope mounts on the receiver, how repeatable is this when it is assembled, knowing that I will not have the opportunity to verify my zero?
TC Contender with maybe the 10 or 14 inch rimfire barrel and pistol stock. How accurate are these with the stock barrels?
I see Ruger has a takedown of the 10/22 now so I suppose that is an option but I'd have the same concern as with the Papoose and the Marlin will likely be lighter.
Other than the above I don't know what options I have that can reliably shoot half inch twenty-five yard groups. I don't even know if the above guns can do it.
Thanks for the help guys.
