Re: Which gun to buy

I see and hear this so often that I thought.. why not just answer here and let the chips fall where they should!

You need to put more info in there are too many variables.

male/female – age – size – location – end use for firearms which are tools, think.. roofing hammer vs cabinetry finishing hammer or cobblers hammer.

Now that being said, if you have no experience;
air rifle/ hand gun
.22 cal rifle / hand gun

who… these can be used anywhere, cheap ammo, cheap to practice with, will be useful at any time in the future, quiet and some are just fun to play with.

I suggest you wade through the endless reams of pages on the different aspects already posted by others for firearms. Remember it becomes a heated debate sometimes. So wade through the BS.. search the nuggets of meat in the gravy of info. Since I was a kid, I was always told by many many experts along with Military training;
pellet
bb
.22 cal
(not bb and pellet are also in .177 and .22 cal) as common sizes

Next look at what you want;
Main battle rifle
sports
combat shooting IPSC – PPC
hunting
etc etc

terrain, type of coverage, what is your ability, your size, resistance and aptitude, so many factors.
shoot in bush only, long open spaces like the prairies (yup.. bush there too)
do you want a round with a flat trajectory or a high arc, how about a low arc of travel.

go to the local gun/rifle range, sports club and learn from there, but it all starts after you learn the proper use, handling, control and storage of any firearm, rifle, shotgun, hand gun, archery equipment, sling shot, etc.

so good luck and post more info there, or request clarifying info, that is best as well. Cheers ~Wild_E
