I talked my girl into coming out to the local indoor range the other day. Thought her how to load up my 22lr and put the target out at 20 yards. I was expecting to see holes everywhere... And to my surprise not one left a 3" circle out of 30 rds! Not bad for the first time shooting this rifle! Pic of target below.. So now this has me wanting to find a rifle for her that can reach to 100 yrds when we go to the bigger ranges.. The indoor one is 10 min from my house but only goes out to 28-30 yds. She won't be hunting with it and I'll be buying the gun and all the ammo so id like to keep both on the lower side.. One other thing, she's a lefty... And this is a gun I would like to shoot a bit too so I want to look mor towards the semi auto models over a bolt action.. So what good companies make a nice semi auto .17hmr? If I have to I'll buy a bolt action tho.
