    I got my first handgun 2 weeks ago, I tried shooting a glock, XD, and a sig and liked the sig the best. I picked up a CPO p226 9mm for $430 (hope I didn't get ripped off, but the prices in this area, it seemed fair)... figure I'd go with a 9 since it is my first gun.
    Well over 2 weekends at the range, I think I fired like 800 rounds and am just itching to go back. Had a blast... now looking to dip into my poker money and get another gun. :wiggle:
    BTW, the one day I went to the range there were a fuckload of people there, some even brought golf carts that were loaded with AR15s and ammo :drool: I think the range attendent said they were "match shooting" I didn't get a chance to check it out, but by the amount of people there it must be a blast.

    Good choice on the gun. If you want a rifle that isn't very expensive get an AK-47/74 or an AR15. That's what I'd get it I wasn't in Kalifornastan

    Depends on price range, but most people will start with an AK or AR.

    Cheap AK's will start at 300 or so and go from there. AR's will vary by brand, but sticking with what is common, expect to pay 800+ for a fully functional rifle.

    There will be 1000 reasons to get either. I chose the AR to start because it's modular and I pieced it together over time.

    You'll have a great time, I'm picking up another 500 rounds and taking my father-in-law to the range this weekend. He's never shot before but has been wanting a gun

    They are both fun, but I'd take a day at the range with just rifles over just pistols anyday. Distance shooting > One giant ragged hole at 7 yards. :big grin:
