Guns are like golf clubs. You could probably play all 18 holes with a putter, but it probably isn't the best idea. First you ought to figure out your purpose for it, then it becomes easier to figure out what to get

Welcome DL

There are a lot of decisions that must go into your gun purchase. What is it's main purpose. Home defense, hunting, target.
Best thing is to take a gun class. Local gun ranges, etc put these on. You can also rent different guns to fire at most ranges. I have a Glock 19 in 9mm for concealed carry. I have a Beretta .25 I carry in a pocket holster for back-up. I have a Winchester Defender 12 ga, 18" bbl. 9mm Marlin Camp9 for intermediate range, 2 .22s and 2 other shotguns a 12 & 16.
Variety is the spice of life.

1 option today that makes alot of sense is a short bbl 20 ga, pump, sxs or semi auto. Good in the house gun. 00 buckshot is my preferred load for the shotties.

the garden state is one of the worst states in the notheast to purchase firearms? ok if you are not put of by that first you need to get a firearms card from your local police dept. once you got that little jewel you take yourself to the army/navy store in robbinsville n.j. and ask for pete. tell him where you got his name..be ready to wait 10 days for your fbi check...sorry jersey suxs..but thats the best prices and service in the state...IMHO

I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable

.22 semiauto pistol for causing holes in tin cans? .500 S&W for making big holes in cans?
Or are you looking for an ASSAULT rifle LOL, Runny & I spoke on that topic yesterday.
Maybe a nice .243 for taking deer?
It all depends on what you'll use it for
