Hi all,

am a keen fisho who has some shooting experience as well. Now i am really getting into the shooting. I will have a few questions from time to time. I live in Southern Brisbane.

1. Am looking at getting a .22 rimfire as my first rifle. Can someone tell me what is a good brand/model for me to begin with? What else shoudl i look at when i am buying it?

I will start with this small calibre and move up overtime even though I have fired bigger calbres in the past when I live overseas.

thanks

Ismail

A Brno model 2 is a very popular starting point. They are now called CZ model 452 I think. You can get cheaper or dearer brands depending how you want to go.

Hey peoples, My name's Liam, 29, spent the majority of my life growing up in central/western nsw. Up near Mackay now hoping to get back in to things after acouple of quiet years. Trigger finger is soooo damned itchy it aint funny. Can hear the .270 whingeing from here!!! Am keen to hear from anyone in the area who's up for a hunt. Am trying to line up a fairly freaking hugh property the other side of Nebo that backs onto a national park so will hopefully be full of critters with serious lead defficientcees.

Cheers Liam
