    dont mean to sound harsh but...
    what on earth for?
    you sound like you want an FAC for vermin and general shooting on a farm.
    Sure they look cool on full auto but doubt that the .22lr version will do what you want or any FLO will give one to an 18 year old.

    get your FAC first, find someone nearby as a mentor for firearms and start slowly with a .22lr, HMR, 222 etc

    oh, and someone will be along shortly to remind you to put an intro in the intro section

    I was going to say the same,fun on the range,not pratical for vermin.
    Get a cz bolt action 22, if you want a semi get a ruger 10/22 IMHO.

    Ben,

    I'm with Bewsh. Forget it - it might look cool, but it's the business end you want and need, whether you realise it yet or not. I'm afraid you're showing your inexperience my friend, and the FLO will pick that up. Find a mentor - you'll probably need one to get your FAC anyway - and learn. Get a CZ base reliable bolt action rifle - you'll never regret it - and all the money you save spend on some good binos/scope - and love the hunt, rather than playing Rambo!!

    I have played with one of these things at a range. Fun to a point, but as the lads say, practically useless.


    From a purely practical point of view, do you want to be slinking around a farm somewhere in cammo with what looks exactly like an MP5 when the armed response team turns up? Imagine the 999 call from a local housewife reporting someone in a wood with a machine gun???

    Get a grip.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Ben, with respect, we know that. Regardless, I think you have a majority opinion so far on the relative merits of the weapon you have asked about from a range of pretty experienced people. The question now is, do you listen to them?

    I would reckon he'd be OK, as long as he wasn't wearing the black flameproofs.
