i just found a new varmit gun that is a 222 on top a 12 gauge on the bottom and i think it will be great for the predator hunting because i can reach out and touch them with the 222 or when they come close then i can shoot them with the 12 gauge what do u guys think about that u think it is a good gun for me to buy

I have a savage 24F 222/20 and love it. If you got a good deal buy it.

Ive had several Savage combo's, loved them all. .22/20ga was my favorite for squirrels/small game. The .222/12 would be an excellent gun for predator hunting. Only drawback was scoping the .222 for longer range hampers pointing the shotgun tube. Did you buy it?

I've seen these, but I've always found them to be too heavy if you're doing any carrying. I'd like to have one anyway. :D

Ive owned several combo guns, they are a good compromise between carrying two guns for game/varmints. Theres an M6 scout made by Henry thats .22 over .410. It was designed as a survival gun for air crews I believe? Holds 10 .22's and 4 .410 shells in the buttstock. They are a rugged dependable gun. Wish I still had mine. My favorite of the savages was the .22/20ga also. It wasnt the best for rabbits/birds but it was a squirrel killer(and real quiet with shorts or CB's). I had the .30-30/12ga also, it was a good varmint gun too. If I was in an area where rifles and shotguns were legal for deer/bear I'd have another. The 12ga loaded with 00/000 or no.4 buck would make a good backup to the .30-30. You could do worse then the .222/12ga for certain. I'd like a .223/12ga myself but I dont think they ever made one? .223 brass and surplus ammo is cheaper and easier to come by.
