Ok so I don't know much about it and to me it don't make no sense but here is how I understand it.

The mach 2 you would think would be badder but it looks like it is only a 22 LR necked down.

What are the pros / cons of the mach 2 ?
Anyone even have one?

Reason I ask is I can get one in a stainless / laminated stock for a real good price.
Just thinking and wondering.

It is accurate but will still tear up game. I know a guy who climes to have killed a turkey with one.

I know the hmr is way to much for squirrel but will put a coyote down. I have been lookung for a mach 2 to squirrel hunt with, but can not find one anywhere so if you can get your hands on one I would snatch it up quick.

I have never looked for them, but how hard is the ammo to find?

Ammo is cheaper than the hmr. I've been wanting to convert my 10/22 but ain't got around to it yet.

Needless to say I have decided I am gonna tell him to bring it this week to work.

May never shoot it but I just can't pass it up.

Now I need to sell something quick. \:D

I don't want to sound like Johnny Raincloud here, but it really boils down to what you like. IMO the hmr and Mach2 are passing fads. They are a both necked down versions of their parent cartridges 22 mag and 22 lr respectively. Although both fit a very narrow niche of shooters, they were marketed to death and thus fairly popular 4-5 years ago. I prefer my 22 mag to a 17 hmr any day. I have/had both. Anything hunting wise that a .17 hmr can do, the long trusted 22 mag can do better. It is much the same story for the Mach2. If you like the gun though, buy it!! I can't turn down the temptation of a well priced firearm regardless of need myself. (Common among gun nuts) Long term ammo availability and ammo cost would be my only concern.
