Ive been looking around and it just seems that the romanian trainer is the best bet.  I just talked to my FFL dealer here in GA and he says he charges twenty bucks on top of the original weapons cost.  is that a competitive price do yall think?  also how accurate is this rifle? thanks for any info.

20$ isnt bad. we have a guy out here who charges 75$ no matter what.this is the shop where the high rollers go.you cant buy a gun under 900$ here.the guy i use charges 5% OR makes deals. i was given a marlin model 60 for x-mas. i think it was 100$ at k-mart. it is deadly when armed with cci stingers

Tech brought up a good point. The Marlins, the ones I have and still own, love Stingers. Not every rifle will group well with Stingers. Stock 10/22s is a good example of a rifle not favoring the Stinger fodder. For a .22, I would go with a Marlin if you want a good reliable hunting rifle. Marlin .17s are a favorite with many small game hunters. Just look at what Big58cal does with his, and that should give you a good idea.

yes but price per price is the .17 really worth it for the "normal joe"?

thats exactly why I was lookign at the .22 and not the .17 Im just not at that level of dedication yet.  I was thinking abotu just stickin with the .22 for a season or two and than if Im still into it heavy than i'd switch over.  btu the .17 sounds like an awesome gun.

If you consider all things, I'd say the .17 IS worth it for the "average Joe." For one thing, once you've got it sighted in, you can hold dead on out to around 125yds and make a killing hit. A .22 would require you to hold the crosshairs up by 3 or so inches to make that hit and who knows what could happen with that lost space. Anywho, a .22 is for the folks like myself who just can't justify the extra money for the rifle or ammo. Once finances settle down a bit, and now that I'm a little better well rounded with my new .243, I can honestly say a .17 is 2nd on my list, just behind the new 20ga for the wife and kids. If you have the money and can spend it, do it. You won't regret it every time you walk up on a headless rat corpse or when you smell that smell and taste that gravy.

John??? BC??? Is that about right?
