Re: Starting with a .22?

Hi Klemm,
I believe everyone should have a 22 lr to pracatise with.Starting off you should buy the best rifle you can afford. Nowadays second hand rifles are VERY hard to sell, so plan & try to buy right first time.
A suggestion for a rimfire rifle is a Auschutz 64 mpr. For a scope a Leupold 6-18 target. Mounts I sugest British Sports Match. This rifle could be used for target shooting ie custom rimfire benchrest, custom rimfire hunter class or rimfire metallic silhouette. It could also be used in the field.
This combo would not be cheap but would be very good.This is what I recomened to my son for when he turns 18 & can buy his own rifle.
