Need help

Alright, I am 17 and i am just now going to go take my hunter saftey course in ohio. Yes, i know 17 is really late, but my dad has no knoweledge in stuff like this and no one ever showed me how fun hunting was. Till, my friends and there dads took me last year.

Well, I bought a pair of registered male beagles today. And i am going to train them to rabbit hunt. My next purchase for a dogs will be a cheap coon dog or a german short haired pointer. I will cut to the chase i am wondering what kind of gun you will use to hunt rabbits.


Btw, if you have tips on training beagles to hunt. I would be happy to hear them.

Thanks
Gray

I dunno about now, but they used to be about 200 at wallyworld.

And, in my humble opinion, there is NO better 22 than the ruger, for the price. I've had one for about 15 years and couldn't even guess how many rounds have been through it, it'll still drive nails though.

10/22 or Nylon 66 are both great starter guns. I would look for used because of both price and the fact that you are too young to purchase a firearm. Pay very close attention to the safe handling of firearms. I size up everyone around me whenever guns come out. Within 5 minutes I know if I want to be near someone. Always treat all guns as if they are loaded. I even open guns at a store to be sure they are loaded. You can't be too safe.

Amen to all of that. I cut my teeth on my dad's Nylon 66. I currently have it to fix it because it quit firing reliably, after about a million rounds... maybe not a million but at least 100,000. 10/22 great gun too. Just keep the mags clean and there are tons of upgrades you can do. I'll post a picture of mine.

Me personally, we use to use 12 ga for rabbits. Never used dogs and only tried to flush them by walking. Bird shot doesn't tear them up. Not many rabbits around here any more though.

Oh... welcome to the addiction. If you stay with it, you'll have a dozen guns, clothes, decoys, bags... it never ends.
