I bought one at a lot heftier of a price than I would have liked as it was the first one I had seen that was not on my computer screen. I thought it could be a perfect fit for the wife with 30 rounds loaded up of 22 mag and a good size light weight, low recoil gun with good fiber optic sights. She immediately hated it and so it had to go since I cannot afford over 600 which included ammo for a plinker. What is up with these? Why the huge desire from so many people? I saw a vast majority of listings when I put it up for sale at close to 800. Msrp is 3 something. I am getting back what I paid but I would have loved to have shot it and got a feel for why they are in such high demand. Is it best served for self defense, varmints, hunting? At 14oz I was amazed at it being a 30 round 22 mag and a full size gun at that. Would you buy it at over 600 with 150 rounds of ammo? Well I know many would but I am really asking the seasoned vets who know their guns and calibers more than the zombie survival guys. If I could find one for a cheaper price I would get it for myself just to be able to shoot it and see what all the fuss is about. The one I sold is just to pricey for a plinker but one day they will catch up to all the wait lists and be available for less than 800-900 as many are charging. Is it a good Sh&% hit the fan gun to have around since you can have 60 rounds loaded and carry a lot of reserve ammo without much weight? I was very unfamiliar with it until I came across it in the case and asked to see it and could hear the 2 guys behind me saying they would buy it and get 800-900 for it. That made my decision for me in all honesty as I figured if wifey does not like it then I will sell it for a whole lot less than that. Why though are people willing to pay the price of an AR for a .22 pistol?
