Ill be hunting in forests. Yeah this'll be my 1st and only. I dont really know the price ranges of rifles but i'd probably spennt up to 300euro. I'll be hunting foxes, pheasants, rabbits etc.what do you want to hunt? and will this be your 1st and only weapon ?what type of terrain do you live in,dessert,plains, forrest?do you plan on starting to go hunting or are you wanting this just incase?how much are you wanting to spend on the rifle it self?
ok how much would the 12gauge roughly cost and how much would the .22 rifle roughly cost?then i would look into a semi-auto shotgun 12ga, plus a shotgun can double as the best home def. weapon you can have.
but if you must have a rifle i would get a.22 for small game but your going to have a hard time shooting pheasant with any rifle.
how is he going to hunt birds with a high power rifle? what scope do you suggest he get with it?andrewphanley if you are a beginner do not get a ruger semiauto .22. I suggest czech CZ452 bolt action rifle or the chinese equivalent which was called a JW15 when they were sold once upon a time in america. These are very safe and simple designs. Currently the cheapest high power rifle would be former military bolt guns like a 7.62 russian mosen nagant rifle or a Serbian 8 mm 98 mauser. They are accurate, cheap, and quite powerful. I am not sure what there is to hunt that requires a highpowered rifle in Ireland.
lol i do that toI was editing the response when you sent yours.
i agree Remington 1100 12 ga. if you dont mind the recoil else 20. and i obviously need to learn how to use the quote functionok how much would the 12gauge roughly cost and how much would the .22 rifle roughly cost?
