204 ruger Handi rifle

Recommended Posts

A friend wants to sale me a NEF handi 204 22" bull barrel with a nikon BDC pro staff scope. He has never shot it and needs christmas money. He only wants $225 for it. The scope alone is $160, so I know it is a good buy. Are the small caliber handi rifles very accurate. I know the k&R ultra slug guns are great.

I know the .204 is usually an acurate round. My friend uses a .204 for coyotes and is usually able to head shoot them past 100 yds.

I had one and it was an awesome shooter. The only reason I got rid of it, is because coyote hunting up here in the "big woods" is tough! I traded it in and got my daughter a k&R youth rifle in .243, which is also a tack driver!!! Sounds like one heck of a deal!

H&R Handi rifles are hit and miss with "out-of-the-box" accuracy. But the .204 is almost always a good shooter from H&R.

Another web site has a Handi rifle talk forum that you can get TONS of info, but FM won't let us post links or even the name...

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
