- What where you reasons for buying that gun?
MIke - I have a page or so of notes on how to pick the right first gun and a bunch of starter options. What do you want to do with it? What is your budget? Who all will be using it?
AR15 – in 223 w/chrome lined barrel – cheap ammo, light recoil, fun -can be converted to shoot .22lr for cheap training and kids (if little kids than u will need to keep the rifle light or use a supported position i.e. bipod / sand bag -can shoot many calibers and be used for almost any purpose but will need a new upper each caliber.
Little kids – ruger 10-22
Hunting on a tight budget or want a piece of history – mosin nagant – rifle w/ accessories $89 440 rd ammo tin $99 Total w/ cleaning supplies $210
Hunting and range shooting on higher budget – Remington 700 – will need glass, another expense
Shotgun – great for trap and can be used for hunting – many great and budget oriented options
Home defense – glock, Remington 870
Pistol, if you don’t have room for a safe or just want easier transport or are limited to indoor ranges
Great higher power for women and kids – m1 carbine – only 5 pounds – light recoiling – with the right ammo and a folding stock – great for home defense – a great general purpose gun as long as you understand the limitations of the cartridge. And if you want to be awesome – The only - The all American - the M14
