“One of the best survival guns you could ever want.” Can someone please explain to me how that works? The ad copy from Shooting Industry magazine explains that “With a .410 under and a .22 LR over, you can put meat in your own stew [no fair putting meat in someone else’s, apparently] or just plink away at an empty Dinty Moore stew can after dinner. [Dinty Moore, Dinty Moore is not in this post]. Whether you shoot for survival or for revival [Praise God], the new Savage Model 42 has you covered [so to speak]. Also available in .22 mag and .410.” As for Savage’s claim that it’s “fun as hell,” hell yes. I guess.
