Conversely, if you are thinking of a SHTF situation, you may want to take a look at the Henry AR-7. http://henryrepeating.com/rifle-survival-ar7.cfm

2. I would leave the shotty just as in. If anything, add a Buttstock shellholder w/pouch. Something like: http://www.amazon.com/Allen-Company-...s=shell+holder

3. Can't say anything against it because it was my idea.
I've strongly considered the ar-7, but have read some iffy reports about it being picky with ammo. It also doesn't have near the aftermarket possibilities that the 10/22 does. I could get the breakdown 10/22, but that's almost $100 more than the "plain" birchwood stock model.
