I need some help/advice from some people who are more familiar with this caliber than I am. I found someone who is selling a brand new Ruger American 17 HMR for $250. He is firm on his price. I was wondering if this is a good price or not. It sounds like a good price. I could shop around for awhile to compare, but if I wait to long I'm afraid it will be sold. I want to buy this for my son for his first gun for his birthday and because he recently passed hunter safety. I thought it would be a good starter gun for small game, varmint hunting, and predator hunting. These are a few questions I have.
Is $250 a good price?
Is this a good choice for small game, varmint hunting, and predator hunting?
Is this gun a rimfire or centerfire rifle?
Thanks for any advice, I've never owned, shot or used this caliber before.
