You have never heard of Taurus? Well, it is a good gun. I have a .17hmr. They are neat little shooters. 350 may be a little high since all you will be able to do with the gun is small bodied varmint hunting.

a 22 and a 17 is NOT interchangeable!!!! do not attempt!! im not totally 100% positive but ive never heard anything about a 22 taking a 17 or vice versa.....i highly doubt its possible being the 17 is more comparable sze wise to a 22mag..and i still dont think it wil shot them because the 17 has a neck...

Nobody said you were Dumb. Before you post just read over what you wrote and make sure it is clear and understandable.
