Here's one, well not really, my dad was bear hunting up in PA. He was late and all he had was his brothers .22 hornet, the bear came out ran right by him but he couldn't get a shot, the guy next to him dropped it with a 30-06.

Haven't fired a .22 mag (yet), but I've killed a deer with a .22lr.

No, I didn't fill it full of lead to see if a .22 could kill one, my cousin hit it and wounded it, so I finished it with a headshot.
Humane and clean.

It is more powerful in a 6" but drop down to 4" and it is a close match. Really falls off badly in 3" and 2". There is actually no advantage to the 22 mag over the 22 lr in a 2" barrel and the 22lr may even be a little hotter.

I have shot a bunch of prairie dogs with a 22 WMR rifle before I got a 17 HMR rifle.

Shot heaps of rabbits, a few foxes and plenty of Kangaroo's (under permit) and my son got his 1st 3 goats with it(Stirling .22magnum) shot in the head at around 20-30 yds. Haven't shot a pig yet with it but that may happen sometime in the future.

So what's the deal can Aussies and New Zealanders own guns?
We certainly can just about anything from air rifles up to .50 cal rifles. Shotguns and semi auto guns under different permits. We just can't own some of the toys you lot can have because our jelly spined politicians are scared we may use them on them.

I own 9 rifles and 1 shotgun plus I've got a .458 AccRel on the books waiting to be built plus probably a .338/06 as another toy and my son who's on a juniors permit owns 2 guns but the guns are in my name till he turns 18.

Mates of mine own .458 AccRels,.505 Gibbs,.460 Wetherby Magnums,.416 Rigby's plus heaps of other smaller calibres.

We hunt here in Australia feral cats and dogs, rabbits, foxes, goats, pigs, donkeys, camels,feral horses, Banteng and Scrub cattle plus water buffalo plus at least 6 species of deer.

The lying thieving rodents that are our politicians here reckon that we have a "gun culture" similar to what you boys have which is so far from the truth it's laughable.
The anti gun wankers tell that much crap it's hard to tell when they're actually telling fact but a lot of people who have no idea about guns believe what the media and these idiots spout.

Don't worry between New Zealand and us there is a very healthy hunting and shooting population something that doesn't sit well with a lot of politicians and anti groups.
