Hi, I just joined this site so I hope I'm in the right forum. I'm looking for some advice on what rifle to get. I'm currently living in The Netherlands, but am looking to emigrate to Sri Lanka. There I want to get a simple rifle (.303 caliber or something similar) with scope to hunt rabbits or whatever lives there I can eat. Any advice on what to get. It has to be easy to maintain, because I'm a computer nerd and not very proficient with mechanical things. Money is not really an object. I don't want automatic fire, because I don't think that's needed for what I want. I just want a good reliable rifle with a good scope. I have been a member of a shooting club here in Holland and have participated in .22 60 meters competitions in which I did pretty well. I realize the larger caliber will have more recoil but I think I can handle that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. thx. Phaelin.
