Default Got my first .22

Bought her yesterday from a local shop when my purchase permit finally came through. I did some research browsing through topics here and on finnish firearms forums and ended up buying a brand new CZ 452 Varmint with 16" threaded barrel. Also bought a Tasco scope, a bi-pod and a supressor for the gun.

Hopefully I'll get to a range tomorrow to sight her in and start practicing

Here´s the pic...

I wish we could get suppressors here. Maybe we can get that as the next fight in our legislature.

Well, that´s about the only good part of our gun legislation. After the two school shootings in 2007 and 2008 getting a purchase permit for a hand gun has been made nearly impossible. After 2008 it was easier to get a permit for semi-auto black rifle than a .22lr revolver...handguns are so dangerous ´cos they´re easy to conceal they say...

Very nice. Please get a range report and some pics to us.

Very cool set-up, Aleksi. Do you plan to hunt as well? I really like the look of the rig, with the scope, bipods and can. What's the make of the suppressor?

You can, but you gotta go through a class 3 dealer and have your sheriff's dept sign off on the federal paperwork, etc etc...they don't make it easy.

That is beautiful! I bet it would be much easier to shoot targets without the noise.
