Same here John, but VQ won't submit any of their receivers or whole pistols for the CA drop test.... :o

I know and that really stinks. :rolleyes: Oh well, I just have to use one of my 10 other .22 pistols until they do. ;) In the mean time I may have to satisfy my need for a new gun by purchasing this VQ.https://www.volquart...tItems.jsp?id=6It the only version with a full stainless steel receiver. Plus since I prefer left hand shooting it doesn't have a funky hi-rise right handed stock that i can't shot from. :D

I'm converting one of my 10/22's because first and foremost I don't care for the .22LR anymore. 22LR is borderline effective past 50 yards, they aren't the most accurate and they ricochet terribly.So now you ask why not just the .17HMR. Well, I think it's overkill for some of the shooting I do, it's louder than it need be and the cost is more. Now you say louder? :o Well, it is and more noise translates into more squirrels and other animals hiding due to the BANG. Besides, since I won't be shooting .22LR's anymore I have a gun I won't be using and the .17M2 will be a great replacement I'm able to shoot for less money than the HMR. :rolleyes: :o

Points well taken ;) Before I got my 17HMR I thought about turning my 10/22 to an HM2.But my 10/22 is so nice I can't defile it. I can see converting a 10/22 if you longer want to shoot 22'sBut I still can't see buying a dedicated HM2.Joel, Very nice :D
