Thread: 2 x 22LR Okay?

  1. #1

    2 x 22LR Okay?

    A mate in Shropshire is putting in for his first SGC and Ive suggested he may as well put in for an FAC at the same time as its only a tenner more , Ive advised him to ask for a .22lr as he has suitable land and will therefore not have to join a club , would it be acceptable to ask for 2 x .22LR ? I suggested he should as he can then get a B/A for more accurate shooting and a s/auto for plinking , is this acceptable for a new comer ? could he also add a .17 as they are also a vermin round ?

    Yes I have 2 x 22LR one semi-auto and one bolt action
    i would recommend he asks for a 17 HMR if he has good reason
    Thereafter only limitation should be size of gun safe

    My shooting buddy has 2x 22lr, a semi auto for night shooting and a bolt for daytime, Gwent had no problems at all with this and he is fairly new to shooting.

    never understood the gunsafe size restriction
    all my guns fit a 3 gun cabinet top to tail

    the moderator advice is very wise. whether you use them or not, bank them for later 1for1's
