I spend 4-5 days a week servicing / repairing diesel generators at cell tower sites. Most of these sights are up on mountains, and some are extremely remote. Because of this, I'm in need of a truck gun. I'm thinking either a takedown shotgun or a takedown .22. A takedown is a necessity, for its discretion. The gun wont be left in the truck. As all of my gear is brought into my hotel room at night. A small rectangle takedown case will just blend in with my bags and tool boxes. I have a takedown 20 guage singleshot, so that would be the cheapest route for me to go. Just need a case for it. The nice thing about the scattergun is its versatility. Birds, small game, big game, it will do it all. The downside is ammo is bulky, and it's quite loud, which might draw unwanted attention. I dont plan on doing anything illegal, but because I am in a numbered work vehicle, I'd hate for some anti-gun or anti-hunter, to call in and raise stink over something I'm doing. Maybe I'm paranoid, and over thinking that... The other thing I have to consider is, I'm by myself. No dog, no buddies, and I'm usually on a schedule. So that limits my hunting time, and efficiency. Meaning, I've got no dog to retrieve downed birds that were shot off wing, and I dont have the time to butcher big game, or even a place to put it haha. So that pretty much just leaves small game and grouse, which are both legal to take with a .22, and easy to retrieve. The .22 is also considerably quieter than a 20 guage shotgun, and even more so shooting subsonics. It's a tough decision. If you were in my shoes, what long gun would you choose? Shotgun or .22, and what model? ETA: This is not going to be used as a defensive weapon. Will only be deployed for hunting, when I get a chance.
