Okay, maybe not a cat. ( but I do hate cats)

Found this new Ruger 10/22 on a FB gun site, picked it up on the CHEAP.

I have a 10/22 that my father gave me. I remember shooting it 40 plus years ago. It is an accurate, fun shooting gun.

Oh, I have a sealed tin with over 5000 rounds of .22 that I inherited.

That's a fun gun. I actually killed two coyotes with mine, in my backyard.

Once a tom cat sprays something boots or otherwise you might as well toss it. One pissed on a tackle bag of mine once I gave up finally decided to try bleach. All it did was take the edge off a little, still reeked. Did I mention how much I hate cats...:mad:

I can't remember the state but I think it was VA for a while had a feral cat season because they were getting over welmed with cats in certain parts of the state. I also am pretty sure Texas has a season or at least you are "allowed" to shoot feral cats.

Look at that article and when you shoot a feral cat it will make you feel better :thumbsup:

Range

What is the range on the gun? Looking at a HMR 17 and trying to figure out what to get. We have lots of coyotes but most shots are in excess of 100 yards.

Are you only limited to a rimfire? Also most coyotes if you call them in right and play the wind right you can easily shoot them with a shotgun. If someone told me to pick a shotgun or rifle for coyote hunting here in FL I am picking a 12ga with #4 buck with the Carlson dead coyote choke tube and pattern the gun and you can pop them out to 60 yards easy but I probably wouldn't shoot a coyote over a 100 yards with a 17hmr. That bullet looses energy fast!!! Dont get me wrong it has been done before and will kill yotes but like splitine said a 17 wsm.

Id feel comfortable to 75 Yds or so, with my .22 mag I feel good to 100, anything in excess of that, I'd go with a .17.
