Sir,

150k for G22 is criminal! even with laser and scope the price in Karachi is 100k without these accessories it is around 70k. Another good option if you want a semi auto is the Baikal. Brno you can not go wrong with.

As far as hunting goes .22 can be used for Rabbit and Jackal, I've seen it used on larger animals such as Boar and Wildcat, but only by very skilled hunters.

better go for bolt action thus you will feel the real flavor, there number of brands available in the market, even you can find some good used brand as well, it all depends. BRNO must be around 35K, i had mine walther (used) for 25K.

beside target practicing you can hunt any large volume of object such as sitting bird, rabitt etc.

bro i think that .22 bore is only for target practice . other ways this is ........................................... trash, most of members will not think same , but i think there is no other use of the .22 bore, its boooring, yar , most off us like big blast. boooooom big bore.,, not pich pich. like water gun...... :D also .22 is not also better for big hunt. u can hunt only rabit ............... and other small stuff........... ballon... :D

dear rookie, i m not agree with u i have perchased a .22lr remington semi auto and enjoing alot. i have also killed 2 big size boars by using fedral hollow point bullets and it waz amazing for me also. any way every one has its own experience but i fell good to use it on rabbits, jackals n wild boars. u can c the pics of that gun at (shotguns&rifles).

@guns for me. The .22 is a round that serves most purposes that enthusiasts want in a more managable way, like ammo price for instance. It also is good for beginners as it is easy to handle(no big booms, hence less recoil). Its a good way to improve your target before moving on to the BIGGER BOOM rifles(as you would have put it). All in all, i think its a must have for any gun enthusiast.

@Basharat and Faisal. Brothers, please..... you MIGHT be able to hurt a boar with a .22, maybe kill it too if you shoot it a hundred times.... but a .22 IS NOT MEANT TO HUNT BOAR. Do you know why? beacuase the actual projectile does not have enough energy to bring down bigger animals..... i might add here that boars are pretty tough animals. It takes a lot to penetrate the skin a boar, let alone deliver enough damage to bring it down. Please do not be in false notion that a .22 will bring a boar down. DO NOT TRY TO SHOOT A BOAR WITH A .22, it might get you in a very bad situation.

.22lr, unfortunately, remains a very under rated caliber and most of us are still unaware of its lethality.

My personal view is that this caliber (in rifle) is a 'must have' in every gun enthusiasts' inventory.

Extremely suitable for:

- Learning basics;

- Teaching your children;

- Hunting small game;

- Plinking and fun;

..... all this at a very economical ammo cost.

@kamran

Sir,
I agree with you 100% if you will read what i wrote i said it is possible but you should not be tried.

@guns for me

Sir,
I would like to share with you two old sayings that my elders and mentors imparted on me.
1. (with regards to .22 being a useless caliber) "It's not the gun, but the man behind the gun"
2. (with regards to big booms) "The empty Barrel rattles loudest"

I am so confused. was at the dealers yesterday and found out .22 comes in 2 different sized bullets and we have to choose a rifle that would fire either one of the sizes. now i am stuck. i want a rifle that would shoot the long bullet and not the shorter one. am i being too much of a dunce...please help

@Fahd

Sir,
Actually there are many types of .22 there is .22 Short; .22; .22 Long Rifle; .22 magnum and .22 Hornet. The most common out of these is .22 Long Rifle this is normally what people are referring to when they say .22. most .22 rifles like the ones recommended to you are for .22 Long Rifle. So yes go for BRNO .22L.R. If you want something that can fire most of the rounds you can look for a Winchester 190 which is a tube fed semi auto that can use all .22 rounds except magnum and hornet

I bought Winchester model 190 on friday for 35K from Multan. actually fell in love with that dandy little rifle at first sight & when me, Tareen & Mustainer LALA passed it after test shooting, immediately bought it.

Basharat Sb one little correction if i may, the bullpup g22 with accessories will not cost more than 80k in karachi. the one i got was for 78k around 3 months back, with the laser. minus scope.

You people forgot to add the GSG or Adler ! both of them are good weapons, not for hunting though.......As far as the calibre 0.22 is concerned , I think it is the most underated weapon in Pakistan. I belive the 0.22 bullet travels the most as compared to other heavier bore and if hollow points are used, they truly make the diffrence.
However like guns for me, mentioned earlier ........I also prefer heavier bores and the big boom bang ! :P

The air rifle used to kill the boar was .475 which means it was delivering nearly as much power as a .38 special so please do not think an air gun or a .22 LR can be used to hunt boars. We have discussed it earlier so I will not go further.
The G22 with Laser and Infra Red and wire guidance are all BELLS and WHISTLES
Please go with a real .22 like the Brno or Ruger,or Kimber or H&K and you will enjoy it for years and it will be accurate and reliable, with a reasonable scope or iron sights.
The laser is Topi Drama just forget it.
The G22 has problems of feeding and and half the time you will be running around to the armourer to get it fixed. It only likes some types of ammo; when it is in a mood to work. It has a lot of plastic parts inside and breakages are common.
I am at a loss to understand how a Manufacturer like Walther come out with a lemon like this.
I am sorry if I have called a spade as a damn Shovel.
If there are strong dis agreements please visit armourer Akram at Baksh Illahi Lahore and you will see the G22s undertreatment
