Agreed- the 5.11 stuff seems designed welll, but I am unfamiliar with it in actual use.

I've used some of their other stuff and liked it well. Had a shoulder bag that fit more than I could ask of it with room to spare--laptop, tablet, edc kit, first aid kit, etc. Well made, practical, and user friendly. Think I'd like to give the covrt series a whirl someday...when cash permits grin

especially the backpack, the pistol pack, and the rifle bag. Nothing to see here....

I think a Ruger single action 22 revolver with a 9 or 10 inch barrel would be a great backpack gun. Excellent sight radius, and just as steady as anything you can prop it up on. This is an option I've been thinking about for a couple of years.

The stainless Ruger .22 plus .22magnum combo was a great all round little revolver, I always carried it on the tractor and sometimes on the horse. For plinking Rabitts it was great.

Plowing virgin grond used to keep the rabitts moving to the center of the paddock. Then the fun began. grin

I agree with this. Also, lately when making gear purchases I've been distancing myself from stuff that looks military for the same reason you just mentioned. .


Afew years ago when I was on BF several LEO's stated that if there was a Katrina type exodus and in the crowd they saw a guy with military gear they would say "Thats a Gun person" and pull that person out of the crowd to search. I have an Osprey Back pack and my essentials fit inside fine. It looks like any other bag.

The trick, I think, is to balance utility, versatility, and concealability without sacrificing capability. Literally every study I do leaves me with a primary choice of .22 rifle, takedown, and of simple, rugged design. Given that, I can have any game, or gun I might come to need, and do not sacrifice mobility or invite scrutiny.

I still like to have a concealed handgun. I like to have one now. Think it might be nice in a melt down scenario too. Now, how do I conceal my 10" Ruger blackhawk 44 mag...

Plus a .22 allows you to carry 500 rounds in your pocket try that with any other Caliber .
