>>27579379 This guy does make a good point. If you are looking for suggestions what are you planning on doing with it? Just plinking, customizing tacticool, long distance shooting or just collecting out of just interest. The reason people suggest 22 is because the ammo is cheap and the recoil is light, but I will admit they might not be the most thrilling gun to own but they do work well as practice guns.
>>27579428 >This guy does make a good point. Buying a gun you don't actually want was never a good idea. >>27579428 >The reason people suggest 22 is because the ammo is cheap and the recoil is light, but I will admit they might not be the most thrilling gun to own but they do work well as practice guns. Yup, but 22 is no longer cheap. It's cheap"er" now, but it's not cheap. Once you shoot a real gun, 22lr will just about put you to sleep. I'd sooner get a high speed pellet rifle than a 22 rifle now days. At least I can afford to shoot it all day every day and still get loads of practice. And it's pretty backyard/garage safe with the most minimal of backstops.
>>27579279 Get a full-sized service or hunting rifle. You'll probably find old milsurp bolt-actions and products like the Remington 700 most comfortably priced and with cheaper ammo, but a CMP Garand or a nice single-shot rifle is fine too. I always recommend this to cover the points made both in >>27579407 and >>27579379.
