In this video he discusses the […]

The Ultimate Packable Survival Gun?

And here I thought the Henry AR-7 was compact! Clearly, the Chiappa Little Badger is even more so weighing in at a mere 2.9 pounds and, when folded, only 17″ long. If you’re looking for a solid, yet inexpensive, single-shot rifle for any number of reasons, the Little Badger may be just what you’re looking […]
