I want a bolt action rifle for use in plinking in the back yard. I live in what ustoo be cuntry but now am surrounded by homes, most on 2 - 5 acre lots. A few nieghbors shoot in their yards - I hear them often. Mostly 9mm, I suspect. Probly have berms to shoot into, against the swampy tree area. Still takes consideration re safety & the neighbor's fears, but not illegal. I shoot .44 mags - not good for this. Just want an accurate gun to target shoot with low noise & speed. Made the mistake of buying one of those break-barrel super pellet rifles! Seems they have to be nearly rebuilt for accuracy unless you spends hundreds. Sssooo... Back to real firearms. When I was a kid I had a single shot & pumped shorts thru it. Ate a lot of squirrels thanks to that little nail driver. I wonder what's out there now. I see kids' .22s at the stores but they're SHORT! And I wonder if they're #rap like most low level stuff. Or if there's a good rifle, of a size for an adult. I just want to print targets, no hunting. Thought about building a silencer for my Remington auto but the LRs move along very fast & would require additional safety constraints. A short would be stopped by a 4" wood backstop and are not noisy. Yer thoughts?
