After lots of internet browsing, magazine reading and asking a few questions here I went out today and bought my very first gun! She's a Savage 93R17 BVSS .17HMR Grey Laminate stock with stainless steel barrel. Also picked up a 3-9x40 scope and suitable rings, a sturdy case to protect her and a couple of boxes of ammo to break her in at the local range, when the weather warms up enough to venture outside. BIG thanks to everyone who helped answer my questions earlier on, right now I'm a very happy camper. I'll let you all know how her and I get along and post a range report when I get some firing time in.
