    What do you want to do with it?

    My uncle has one and loves it. When I'm up there visiting and trapping I have used it several times to dispatch coyote and bobcat.

    It seems like an expensive bullet in a gun that limits what the round is capable of. .17 HMR seems much more like a rifle round to me.

    I'd think .22LR or .22Mag or a convertible would be better.
    What's good for me might not be good for the weak minded.

    In that case, I would skip the 17hmr route and go to a .22lr. I don't see the purpose for a 4" revolver in 17hmr. To me it is an excellent varmint round but you won't see enough of the benefits out of that short barrel to make it worth while. With the .22 option, you will get same amount of plinking fun and have less noise for less $$$
