Maybe For Your Country House

I love of all sorts of gadgets but since I live in Manhattan there are certain things not worth owning for lots of legal reasons. But something cool, in a disaster-preparedness sort of way, that you might keep in mind is the Henry Repeating Arms U.S. Survival Rifle. An older version of this rifle, known as the AR-7, was used by Air Force pilots. This new, improved version, which fires .22 long ammunition, breaks down into a waterproof stock and weighs only 2 1/2 pounds. It costs $230 and, go figure, it's made in Brooklyn! (Caveat Emptor, I do not own this and have never used this.)
