.17HMR/.22 Mag Accelerator Pistols ...tell me...

So whats the scoop with these pistols.. " http://www.excelarms.com/acceleratorpistol.html

I'm thinking about it.. always wanted something rimfire with more punch that the .22 LR...

Have any of yall shot one, handled one...
out of a short "pistol" barrel, which cartridge would perform better for short range varmint's? (coons, possum, dilla's, uuber squirrels, neighbors crazy cat etc etc )

with a Suggested Retail of $ 491.00 the cost aint that bad...

whatcha all think???

The best thing about shooting handguns like that is the wonderful muzzle blast and noise with virtually no recoil. The cartridges were really desined for rifles and lose a lot in short barrels.

Re: .17HMR/.22 Mag Accelerator Pistols ...tell me...

From what I have seen .17HMR and .22 mag ammo is almost as much as 22-250.

Personally .22LR is the cheapest for me, then 22-250 (don't have one yet) then 30-06. I don't have a reason to mess around in between.
