If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

For the most part, very little. Not enough to really notice when shooting coyotes. IMO the whole idea of the 19 is a novelty. To me, I like that. Something a little different is kinda cool. I really like the Badger, looks like a fun round.Yes, components could be a problem...but I'm sure someone would step up to the plate if Calhoon can't supply.If you are looking for advantages shooting a 19cal over shooting a more popular round like a .204, I wouldn't even bother with the 19.
My question is: what does a .19 give you that a .204 doesn't? At least with a .20 you have access to tons of readily available rifles and reloading components...

I understand Braz, I already have hearing damage due to working at a shooting range in my teen's, later on a lumber mill, then the past 13 years in Heavy Construction.I do wear ear plugs at work & while target shooting just not hunting, I will look into the Amplified ear muff's, it is something I've been thinking about for a a while now.
Take it form an old man that has to have help with my heaing, you will regret it. I've got hearing aids that cost over $6000 and I still take my wife to the doctor with me because I can't always understand what they say. And I have her do all the talking on the phone because I can't understand folks on the phone. Like I say, don't end up like me. Just wear amplified muffs and you won't have a problem in the field. Take this as friendly advice.
I completely agree, it is more of a want than a need, I don't need anything more than my 22-250 my 30.06 & my 12 Ga. but lord knows I have a few more than that & want a whole lot more.A .17 Rem is next on my want list then we'll see about a .19Thanks Lee
That .19 caliber setup does look interesting and I considered one of his special CZ builds too. However, I am very happy with my 204 bolt and my 204 AR. That caliber is pretty devistating to varmints. And...I have too many rifles now. I sure liked what I read about the 19s though. For me, it's more of a "want" thing than a "need" thing. Lately, as I get older, I have been attempting to separate my wants from my needs. I love my CZ in 17 Remington and I have yet to discover any issues like excess fouling or other negative claims. It is a hoot to shoot, it's very accurate and easy to load for. As far as I am concerned, there is no down side for the 17. I typically shoot .17 cal 30-grain Bergers close to 4000-fps and they turn large crows into a cloud of feathers. Placed properly, they liquify coyote innards and you are hard pressed to find an entrance hole. It's my rifle of choice for legally night hunting yotes in the proximity of rural homes. Then there is my motorcycle addiction.....
