I bought a Marlin 795 similar to yours. I gave up trying to find a Marlin 60.

.

I specifically wanted box mags for capacity at hand on the rifle and speed of reload. I have the option to take 1-2 shots or dump the mag depending on the situation. And if I dump the mag I can reload in less than 2 seconds unlike a tube that would take much longer. With 5 mags that's 50 rounds at the ready at all times.

.22 rifle would be especially useful in a rabbit zombie situation... I like the idea of a survival henery or any of the ones that pack rather compactly.

I personally am waiting on a PCC that uses Glock 9mm mags so I can just carry one set of mags and ammo for both.

Suppressed 10-22 with a red dot would be my choice. Like the IDF in an earlier post, the only thing you hear is the firing pin hit and the round hitting the target. You can drop several with head shots before the fourth realizes what is going on. CCI Stingers running 1640 fps with 191 fp of energy will make a head crack like an egg shell.
Go shoot steel challenge matches to get experience. 1.8 seconds to hit 5 steel targets at ranges from 5 to 25 yards is not uncommon anymore.

Anything super sonic would cause a sonic boom and defeat the purpose of the silencer in this example. Just sayin`.

Oh I know, but in the example of the .22 Stinger, we have shot them suppressed. There is no sonic boom even though there is a slight crack that on a windy day would be difficult to hear if there were any additional ambient noise. Standard velocity would be much more silent, but less lethal.
