I'm trying to decide on a rifle to start learning with. I haven't fired a rifle since I was a kid and am definitely a beginner at this point. Although I know very little about guns, I've found some very useful info on these forums and am close to a decision. I just wanted to ask for advice from the knowledgeable people around here before deciding on a rifle. Its main purposes will be home defense and target shooting. Even though I eventually want to shoot higher caliber ammo, like 30-06, I've gathered from reading around here that a 22lr bolt action rifle is the best way to learn, due both to cheaper ammo and getting a feel for wind and trajectory. So I'm looking for a very accurate 22lr rifle that will allow me to develop precision. At this point I've narrowed it down to the following three: CZ 452 Kimber M82 Savage MKII The Kimber may be a bit out of my price range, as I don't want to spend more than $4-500. I'm also considering Ruger and Browning. Any other models I should look at? Also, would it be a good idea to try to save money by buying a used rifle from gunbroker.com or a local pawnshop, or is this risky for a novice? Thanks so much for any advice!
