    I think they are HIGHLY over rated. They work well for squirrils and P Dogs but larger varmits deserve larger bullets. Other than that they are fun to shoot.

    .17's are deffinantly not toys. If you believ so, go onto youtube and type in .17 HMR. Those things are advertised as little sticks of dynamite and you will be able to see why. They are much more deadly than .22.

    The 17's are great, I love my HMR, The .22 LR is the plain vanilla of shooting, crawl out from under your rock and experience something new.

    The .17's are not toys. They are excellent varmint/small game rifles. Clay is correct about the expensive ammo, about the same as .22 mag though.

    Deadly accurate and a nasty little round. I love them. My brother has one and he smacks the brass end of a shotgun hull at a 100yds all day long. I have see several skull shot hogs drop in there tracts.

    I love my 17! We had a gentleman on our lease who actually took a few hogs with his. I dont remember if he ear holed them or through the eye. But that just shows you how deadly any gun is with a accurate shooter.

    well of course no guns are toys. i just thought it was more of a little rodent, pest control type rifle. the kind of thing you use when you sit on your front porch and shoot gophers with

    No gun is a toy, The .17 will kill yotes and completely destroy a squirrel, not something I'd call a toy.
