I have a question regarding the legality of carrying a henry ar-7 style survival .22 which stores within its own barrel.  Would I be breaking the law by carrying one while camping/hiking etc. if it was collapsed and stored in a backpack?  Law says they can't be in a ready state of use, but with barrel+action stored in a stock, is it capable of ready use?

Addly. could one carry ammo in the above situation without having it locked up or in a seperate container; and instead keep ammo within the stock?

since no body seems to know, this is the rifle.

It's legal to carry it in Texas, but I have no idea about MO. You might do a search? Or ask on the MO forum?

I guess what I'm asking is if the action + barrel is held in the stock, is a firearm still redily avaliable?

Figure it this way.... Any prick of a prosecuting attorney could PROBABLY *make it be*, if you catch my drift.

Legally though, the laws are different in every state. A GOOD defense attorney would most likely show it isn't "readily accessible" or whatever term your state laws define, as it would be disassembled, but unless the laws clearly state you can carry ANY rifle around in such a circumstance, are you willing to take that chance ?

You'd probably never have it become an issue as who'd even know, if you kept it in a pack, etc but again, are you willing to take that chance. There's ALWAYS a first time.

Not wise to skirt grey areas in whatever carry laws your state has, you know ?

I'd find out for sure before even considering it.  packing.org will tell you your states gun laws pretty accurately.  How YOU interpret them may not necessarily be the same way the .gov goons do, of course.

If your gun isn't "readily available" you might as well carry a golf club.

YMMV

It's a survival arm. If he gets lost or injured way out in the boonies he can hunt.

I quess nobody knows about legal,but if you were backpacking it !

Why not ?   Go for it ,it might just save your ass!

If i had a 1911 pistol apart in pieces say into pieces  in twelve bags is it still a pistol?

I would say yes,but dangerious not untill I put her together!

Unfortionatly the laws of the land are blind,and stupid!

Well -
- You don't need a survival gun on a hike in Missouri, and a .22 RF isn't big enough for self protection anyplace that you do need a survival gun.

In Missouri, how about carrying that rifle assembled and jammed into bungee cords on your back pack.  Carry it muzzle down and keep the magazine in your pocket or in the gun, ready for quick enough use if you see a squirrel you need to eat.

but a survival .22 is better than nothing.  that is why.

Well, in MO we do have CCW.  And, you can carry a loaded concealed firearm in your vehicle.  
Plus, depending on where you're at, open carry may be fine, too.  I'm not sure where you're planning on going, obviously state parks or something would not be to keen to open carry.
But, unless I'm missing something, I don't see the issue here.  Get a CCW and carry whatever you want, where ever* you want.

 Uh....around here, the sun is generally in the sky along an east/west location...?  I suppose depending on time of year, it can dip to the south by a few degrees...but MO ain't up in the Great White north...?

Osprey can you give some more details?  Little tiny 22s have always facinated me - I want one .  

AOW or pistol? Homemade or commercially purchased?

If you become so lost in Missouri that you need a survival rifle, I hardly know what to say.

That big ol' nuclear reaction in the sky is in the south.  If it's dark, sit your self down until daylight so you don't step off a ledge and break a leg; it's too dark to shoot dinner then, too, unless you have a good light and get lucky.  The closest road is no farther than a mile in 90% of the state, probably in 99%.
