Why does he think it's a bad idea?

Where are you located? Here in the North East, 300 yards on vermin is a long way. .223 works fine.

Listen to your stepdad. Buy one when you grow up.

Any time my Dad argued with me about spending my own money I reminded him that I worked hard for it and I understand what it will take to earn it back and that I'd already taken care of whatever bills I had to pay first. His advice was always make sure it's what you really want, don't ever give up what you really want for what you want right now. My Dad is a smart man.

I haven't read you other threads, so you may have stated your age in one of them. Not to stomp on your toes, but the I want one now argument doesn't carry much water.

Find a reasonable application for the rifle and present it in that manner. Hornady is the only ammunition manufacturer for the .204 Ruger. There is a good write-up here The New .204 Ruger.
