No offense, but anyone asking the questions you're asking needs education before buying a firearm.
Interesting answer, that doesn't provide an answer, doesn't help, and demeans a person asking a question all at the same time!

So in your opinion, anyone should be an expert in rimfire history, like you, before owning any weapon? I found this forum trying to learn about rimfire too, but am no closer to any understanding without some helpful contribution.

Pyrogenic, this is a very old thread you pulled up and I am the originator of this thread. It's all okay. I was new to guns and as green as the grass when I started this thread. I've come a ways with the help of the people on this forum. I was not offended by Freefall's post. He certainly had a point. But thank you so much for speaking up in my defense. Welcome to FTF and I look forward to learning from you, too.

Feel free to ask questions but I like the fact you used the "search" feature. You will get lots of friendly, helpful advice here about rimfires and anything else you want to know. This thread was actually the first of many, many threads I started with questions on the most basic things.

I think very old thread is the operative term in WOC's response. Let's not resurrect a thread unless there's a real good reason to do so.
