WASR. for the price of the MP clone- you can get 2, or stock up on mags and ammo for one
.22's are for training, plinking, target shooting, and hunting squirrels. A $99 bolt action will do all of these better than the $500 one. Yes, everyone should have a .22, but this one is suited only for plinking. The original question indicated that he did not have a fighting rifle/carbine. Only a fool would consider the GSG-5 a fighting weapon.I have the GSG-5, and I love it. I don't think anyone here would dispute the need for a .22lr. It is great for small game, and can be used for self defense if need be. If you had high cap mags from before the ban, you have a very nice platform. Also the ammo is cheap, and easily stored, and carried in bulk. No need for mag locks here in Ca. so reloading is easy. Plus since it is a rimfire, you can have a overall length of 26 inches with a telescoping stock, also legal in Ca. Plus is is close in ergonomics to the HK USC, and can be trained with without the cost of ammo....
