I like my 17 hmr. I head shoot rock doves, cotton tails and blue grouse with it up to 150 yds or so, out here in the Olympics. I can't do that consistently with my 10/22.
The most fun at the range is my GSG5.
Thomas Jefferson: "The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes....Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.
