    Dilema what to sell

    I have put in for a variation to start my progress towards stalking and I have come to the conclusion that I will have to sell a firearm along with a shotgun in order to fund the purchase of a new rifle.

    My dilemma is what to sell. I either sell my Finnfire in .22lr or a .17hmr.

    I currently control rabbits and am moving to Fox. The finnfire I love but it isn't suitable for Fox, some of the land. I'm on isn't suitable for a centrefire so I can't use it for Fox accross the board.

    I'd rather sell the .17 but the .22 doesn't cover enough options, it is also further complicated by the .17 being tricky in a couple of places for rabbit!

    What to do!

    Sell the 17, it isn't a fox round anyway.
    The .22 will do the rabbits and close range fox, conditions allowing.
    Get whatever you buy for deer conditioned for AOLQ and your sorted.

    I'm in the same boat. Prefer the finnfire as a rifle but the .17hmr as a caliber. Can't chose!

    the 17 has a slot in my cabinet, and the 22 has not?

    never the less both have gone and i would only have a 17 back, i dislike the 22lr for nothing other than its rick 'o' sha factor, i found the 17 to do all i wanted and more, but as said both went as i needed to sell up to pay bills, and now back in work i have my 2 rifles that i use the most, and 1 day i will have a 17 again.

    ps: my force do not issue (well they have never put it on my ticket) AOLQ, they put on what i use each caliber for and thats that.

    best of luck, the finnfire is a cracking rifle, sold mine to a great rifle builder and he still has it to this day.

    lose the 17, hands down. however, look to add a proper foxing calibre.
