    Very very lovely porn, I mean gun! Please do post your results. There aren’t many types of rifles or guns that I don’t want one of, only thing holding me back is money and time. Time being the biggest factor, which is why I got into Airguns. Now I shoot almost daily. I have taken quite a few PBs out of my wish list so I can buy airguns.

    Fit and finish is truly a Weatherby strongpoint. Beautiful rifle! As a former small bore benchrest shooter I’d love to see a comparison of the two. Come on with the videos! 
    As for gun porn here’s my Remington 40X. I doubt I’ll ever get the air rifles I now have to shoot as well as it does.

    I’ll let you know next month when i get my license. I’ve got  guns on my mind, Anshutz, FWB, a Rem 40x, and if I can find and afford one a Suhl. All in .22. No I haven’t decided on a model of Anshutz or FWB but I’ve got time to decide and money to save.

    Have you looked into who made your XXII, Italy and Japan made most of them….all are very good guns.  If you have the factory scope it is a big plus, they are not that great and often got tossed….so if you have that is is a real plus.

    I have one of the automatics, and it is a pretty good shooter, Japanese made.  Take care if you need parts most are hard to come by.

    And yes I am a firearms junkie…..one of those guys that when I die they are going to say….this dude was a gun NUT.

    All the same skills that you use in air rifles are used in firearms…..I have long said if you shoot a magnum springer well you can shoot anything.

    One of my 22lr guns is a Ruger 10/22 that’s basically factory except for the stock. Its one of the most enjoyable guns I have to shoot and I have multiple ARs and AKs. Very accurate gun with the factory barrel but its not so nice I’m afraid to do a couple 25 round mag dumps.

    I’m still working on getting my first PCP but I already see one huge advantage. There are no restrictions on noise moderation like the NFA imposes on firearms. I’m looking forward to getting a PCP and making it as quiet as possible without paying for a $200 tax stamp.

    I had an old Marlin 70. It had to be loaded with long brass to operate correctly. The only rounds I found worked were CCI Maxi Mags. When squirrel and rabbit hunting I found those rounds to be a bit much, and prefer 177 pellets to have less if no collateral damage. The less meet that gets blown away the more for my tummy! Besides it’s becoming a pain to buy 22LR, but 22 mag is pretty available, but still to much for small game. Perfect coyote round tho. As far as accuracy it’s hard to say. Ammo/pellets and weapon. The person shooting. My old H&R 922 would pluck 410 shells off of there brass at 30 yards with those old non adjustable sights all day. But I can do that with my NitroPiston 177 aswell

    I had a savage mk2 in .22lr, it was a great rifle. I can achieve the same accuracy with both types of rifles 80 yards and below. After 80.. the rimfire would perform the best. Being in Massachusetts and barely any place near me to go shoot I sold all my rifles and just stick to pcp rifles.

    I also have a Savage mk2. Plan to do a shoot off between that and some of my PCPs this summer. Should be interesting. I expect my FX Boss will outshoot the 22lr out to 100 yards. After that it’ll certainly come down to wind and conditions. Ultimately, the farther out you go the more the lr will have the advantage.

    I used to have an Anschutz 2013 BR-50, that I sold when I was younger.  Man I loved that gun and wish I still had it!  I’m contemplating buying another Anschutz as my next gun-their triggers are just so awesome I can’t get it out of my mind (I’ve owned 3 Anschutz rifles so far: the BR-50, a CA2002 10m air rifle, and a 
    ZM2002 (Allen Zasadny Modified FT setup)).  Those triggers seem to haunt me like a hot woman you just can’t seem to get out of your mind (as much as you want to-if that makes any sense?).

    So now I’m debating buying a second RAW, a Thomas, or perhaps an Anschutz rimfire.  

    I set my 18 year old daughter up with a CZ452 Scout.  I plan to setup my 14 year old son with a CZ 455 Tacticool with the ‘Mr Fly’ trigger.  I was thinking about going with a CZ-455 with the same trigger in the Manners stock (Trainer model), but then I was thinking about mods, etc and figured I was already getting into the $1500+ range so I may as well just do what I want and get another Anschutz.

    Thoughts?

    I have the Savage B22 and B17 rimfires.  When I use subsonic ammo I can shoot my 22LR in my backyard.  I have a legal suppressor and it's as quiet as my quietest PCP with CCI standard ammo.  The 17HMR  is way over supersonic so no backyard shooting with it even with the suppressor.
