Hello from Georgia

Hello,

I grew up shooting bb guns and friends .22s
I later had a 10/22 that I wished I still had. I just used that for plinking in the woods.
For the last couple years I've been buying handguns (9mm, .22, .38) for conceal carry/home defense. I've spent quite a bit of time at the range practicing. I decided I wanted to get a rifle and try some small game hunting so I just got a RWS 48 Striker air rifle in .22
I got this because I figured its a well made rifle, has a scope and the ammo is very cheap to use. If I decide I like hunting as much as I'm hoping I'll then likely get a .22WMR or .17HMR for small game up to (including?) coyote. I know I have some time but from what I'm reading there is much debate on those two calibers. If all goes well there I'd like to get a .223 (maybe 22/250??) but I'm getting ahead of myself.
Anyway I have much to learn, that's why I'm here. I did spend some time this afternoon when my new RWS Diana came in. I'm quite pleased with the solid build quality (German) and accuracy, so far out to about 30-40yrds.
I'm sure I'll be asking alot of the typical noob ?s but.....well you know, I'm a noob.
If anybody would be willing to show a noob the ropes, I'd be grateful. I'd like to learn how to hunt everything from small game to deer including the tricks of calling etc.


Steve

Ain't that the truth!
Well maybe I can convince my 5 & 7 yr old kids to go through the ROTC program so I can keep buying toys
