    My first rifle back when I was like 10 years old was a Charter Arms AR-7. It jammed like a mother-------, but it was pretty cool though.

    It would be ideal for if you went backpacking in the wilderness for a few weeks, and needed to hunt squirrels or rabbits or something for food. Very light, very compact even when it's assembled, and when it's stowed in the stock it's waterproof, and I believe it will float.

    I've been thinking of picking up another one just for nostalgia and camping. Don't know if it's worth $150 though.

    Especially with the hassle of a dealer transfer (which means a new 4473) and shipping charges.

    I have wanted one for awhile, but I never seem to have the cash at the time.
    I think their price is too high.

    $150.00 for a semi-auto mag fed .22lr rifle you can store in it's own stock sounds like a good price to me. :dunno:

    ok, if it were me, i'd get one just for kicks/backpacking. if you just want a cheap .22 to plink with, the Ruger 10/22 is in my and many other ppls opinion one of the best and it's not much more than the one you're thinking of.
