semi autos are bad to learn on not as accurate as a bolt or leaver action,some of your accuracy is lost from the gasses use to eject the bullet .

If semi-auto rifles (one shot per trigger pull) are banned well that's just stupid but they aren't the best choice for a first gun anyway. You'll learn to shoot better(aim carefully) with something other than a semi-auto.


I like the idea of lining up a shot rather than just holding down the trigger anyway. But yeah, no semi-auto's here. :D



Just holding down the trigger won't do you any good . It's not a machine gun .

Actually Ruger 10/22's can be very accurate . You do need to try a few different brands of ammo for best results .But you need to do this with a bolt action rimfire too .
