I am 99% down on the Moab for a week of 3/21/2015 to 3/28/2015 if I can get the time off at work I might join you in the Primitive camping area.It can also be for anything of interest to island life too, open season so to speak. Pig hunting was popular and encouraged on Hawaii since island is gerting over-run with them. Same problem in Turks and Caicos? Ooops, were back to guns again. Now let me tell you about my 10/22.......
This is the gun I have wrestled over buying for my TW camping/hunting adventures. Have you been able to verify the accuracy after it has been taken down then re-assembled several times? Did you get the one that came with the backpack? If yours did come with the backpack is there enough room to slip my holstered Berretta in the pack for travel purposes? This is a LOT of money for a .22 especially considering I own about 5 of them.
Thank you for the follow up. I think it is time to "thin the heard" of .22's to make room for more .22'sIt maintains accuracy time after time I've taken it down and reassembled. Last time out, I set up a 50 yard range. Fired a 3 shot group, breakdown and back, another 3 shot group, repeat 10 times. The grouping did not change. I can hit ground squirrels at 50 yards off hand/standing. On a rest, I can get 'em out to 100 yards. The gun loves CCI Stingers, a very fast round; over 1600fps.
It comes with a backpack but only one strap. So you wear it like a bandolier across your chest. I didn't like that and bought a second strap at a local Army/Navy surplus store for a few bucks. Now it goes on easy. The gun just barely fits in with the scope and rings you see on there.
There is plenty of room for a holstered Berretta. There are outer pockets large enough, plus it's got the M.O.L.E. straps so you can attach other stuff as well.
Here is an example of what one guy was able to fit in the pack as a 'bug-out' bag;
For keeping a rifle hidden, which is a wise thing to do, a take-down like this is the only way to go. I keep waiting for Ruger to provide optional barrels, but so far nothing. A fluted bull barrel would be cool!!
These look to be very nice sights. Do you own a set or have you used them?For those that like iron sights check out

These will lengthen the sight radius and creates a sight picture very similar to what US military rifles have. With the flip sight, set the low sight for 50 yards and the high sight will be very close at 100 yards.
Yes! First impression was they were cheap -- and then after owning and using them a while they became inexpensive. I like them because the sight picture is very similar to a WW2 and after rifle. Practice with a .22 and when you switch to a center fire it looks familiar. The rifle has been banged around a little but the sights have withstood the abuse.
