What kind of guns can I own with a 'Category A' license here in Australia?

Category A: Rimfire rifles (not semi-automatic), shotguns (not pump-action or semi-automatic), air rifles, and paintball markers. A "Genuine Reason" must be provided for a Category A firearm.

-----------------------------

I'm going after the most BASIC of all gun licenses because its the one I have a chance of getting. I want to do some target shooting.

What kind of rifles will this allow me to get?

Can somebody name some makes/models?

How many rounds do they hold?

etc etc........
