    hey all new to this forum and am an ipsc member in australia.

    due to our very restrictive legislation over here we cannot use rifles for our 3 gun matches in WA as most ranges are only pistol certified.

    does anyone know of a 9mm rifle that is either pump action or lever as we can license those here

    The only 9mm rifles that I am aware of are all semi-auto. They do make pumps in several of the pistol cartridges (copies of the old Colt Lightning) but from all I hear they are not really all that reliable. Your best bet is probably going to be to get a lever in 357, 44 or 45.

    3 gun is a speed contest. Bolts are pretty slow. That's probably why he wants a pump or lever.
