    Ok so i have never owned a gun in my life but want one. I have always wanted a Russian Dragunov but it pretty far out of my price range. So i was looking at the Romak-3/PSL. I have read a lot of mixed reveiw, seems like people either hate them or love them. So im asking OT, since i will be a first time gun owner, and obviously on a budget. Would anyone say this gun is worth the buy? Has anyone on OT owned this gun or shot it?

    Get a 10/22 for a first rifle. Get a cheap fullsize 9mm for a first handgun.

    I've shot a Romak-03 before. It was a nice shooting gun. I'm assuming the hit or miss involves them being assembled by Century? I considered buying one for a while, but never had the extra cash around.

    I would second the other post. If it's a first gun, a .22 is the way to go. You can go and blast 1000's of round for $20. vs. $300+

    cheap to feed, which is important when you need a good bit of practice time, plus you do not accumulate annoying and bad habit from higher recoil weapons.

    .22LR and 9mm luger for starers.

    The ones imported from Romania are pretty decent, the ones imported as parts and assembled by century are like everything else century assembles hit or miss.
