I've been shooting (shotguns) for about 20 years, but last year I had to get a neighbour and his rifle to help with a problematic fox that wouldn't come within range of the 12g. So I decided to take the plunge and get my firearms licence. I've been granted a .17hmr and a .243.
I've bought a CZ455 .17hmr and put about 200 rounds through it and wishing I'd put in for one sooner. I'm currently saving/researching for the .243, so no doubt I'll be in touch in due course wanting help on rifles/moderators/scopes and QR mounts. We have a few foxes and deer on the farm, so it will have to be multipurpose.
