Could you be more specific? What are you looking to accomplish?

The sharpshooter here asked for help and all you're doing is being childish. Here's a list of a few great brands to try:

Davis
Lorcin
Jennings
Phoenix
Hi-Point
Desert Eagle (Only in .50 AE, though)

Any of these brands will give you years of reliable service and will put your local gunsmith's children through college at an Ivy-League university

Runs said those brands will put your
local gunsmiths kids through college.

I think he is saying those guns get a
lot of repair.

I know it's Magnum Research, but they make plenty of models that are terrible for personal defense like the Baby Eagle line of pistols. Those things are almost as bad as Glocks, Sigs, and HKs

For the money, a surplus rifle is hard to beat. You can get them fairly cheap, they last forever, and are built to take a beating.
If you want an AR, consider buying the components and putting it together yourself. If you shop around and watch the prices, you can get a lot of components cheaper than you could but the whole thing for. And a bonus to the AR family of rifles: Only the lower is considered a firearm under current US law, so you can get a different upper or even a caliber conversion through mail-order.
As far as handguns, if you want a semi auto, Bersa makes decent ones that are not too expensive. Or shell out 600 for a S&W.
Revolvers, i like Ruger but they're spendy. I like Rossi as well, they have a great little 38 snub.
Shotguns, H&R is good, especially the singles. And Mossberg. I love my 500 A Gold Trigger.
A good semi auto 22 is the Marlin 60, which you can get new for around 150, they're super accurate, reliable, and parts are pretty cheap if you do break it.

Hope all this helps! Good luck finding your gun(S)!
And remember, you need to SHOOT them to be good shooting them!

Have you even shot before?

If so, what?

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

h&k does make very reliable guns, if you're looking for a pistol I would recommend them along with kimber, and sig sauer. I had an HK USP 40 full size, got rid of it because i didnt feel like toting that big of a pistol when i get my CPL. traded it in for my saiga 7.62x39 and some ammo. later on got a glock 19.... the rifle will go down one pant leg, and the glock in the pocket haha... kidding.

Hot_diggity....

You lost my support at "Kimber". Lol! I hate them above all others. Worst customer service I've ever dealt with.

don't be hatin' :P shot my buddies kimber and fell in love with it. no clue how their customer service is, fortunately I don't feel like spending that many snaps for a pistol... if it were a barret .50 cal rifle... id do it in a heartbeat... if the money was there lol. however when it comes to customer service, i usually get my way, i'll fight to the end to make sure they deliver customer satisfaction, after all i am a business man myself, and strive to give our customers complete satisfaction, so i force my outlook on others alot when im bitching over the phone. just gotta know your goal and know you can reach it, higher ups are great after you shit talk some bimbo crack head for 30 minutes.
