Questions, Questions: What Guns To Take On The Road Trip?

So we leave tomorrow at about 0730 (yeah right, probably not likely buy one can hope that the only son wakes up before then); and the question of which gun(s) to bring along has popped up in my head. Of course I am going armed, with my regular carry pistol, the Glock 19; but I probably will throw another firearm or two into the car to bring along for some fun shooting should we have the opportunity. I am thinking the S&W Model 17 ten shot revolver in .22LR, and maybe the Henry Survival Rifle. They should so nicely for some plinking fun, and if we get lost in the woods with the Henry, well it can live up to its name and protect us from things like ravenous mosquitoes, crazed chipmunks, Pic-A-Nic basket thieving Boo-Boo and Yogi The Bears, and criminally insane psychos. We may take it canoeing too, and if we capsize our canoe whilst canoeing - it floats - or so they say. One never knows when one may have to shoot at a turtle who has decided to torpedo the canoe. Yes a couple of 22s should make any trip like this more fun; and no I don't really plan to shoot any turtles or other critters, heck not even any mosquitoes...

Later for you,
GB

Hope your father's day trip went as well as mine,, (other than the nightly thunderstorms at our campground). As for the travel gun thought, I always take my Glock 36 carry gun, and and a short barreled 12 gauge shotgun. The scattergun stay's hidden away, just in case it's needed.
