I like the 63, as a bugout though I'm not sold on the 22, especially since snares are light, infinitely reloadable, and accomplish the same objective. I definitely prefer a light k/l frame revolver, but would most likely choose a 32/38/357 for the things a 22 doesn't do as well. And then there's snakes; I know folks pack a bearcat with snakeshot for toting in snake country, and it's dandy, I've used it. But a 32/38 shot shell is just as dandy. Count me as yes for revolvers, but no for 22.
