I dunno, YRkoon, 500 bucks can buy a lot of good guns. If only someone had written a series of articles on just such a topic...
That being said, train first, toys second. you don't know what you want until you know what you can shoot well.And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

If I had my druthers, my for-fun gun would be a S&W 686P with the 4 or 6" barrel. What can I say? I've always loved revolvers and westerns, and that gun is great-looking and shoots awesome.Originally Posted by Sarcastro

The wide availability and low cost of WWB means that you can cover both bases with one kind of ammunition, greatly simplifying reliability testing. A lot of people like 124gr for defensive loads in that caliber, but WWB JHP is only available in 115gr and 147gr. Again, I'd go with the heaviest option. For reference, MidwayUSA has 147gr WWB JHP for $19 per 50 rounds.

Buy reliable and durable firearms, ones that fit you and that you like. Train with them a lot.
Get a rifle, 5.56 or 308; get a shotgun, 12 ga; get a pistol, 9 mm or 45. Spend the rest on ammo and mags.

After Wetware's comments, I think my first purchase here might be a .22. I had a lot of fun with a Ruger 22/45, and as I understand it they're fairly cheap. My thought right now is to spend on one, put a ton of rounds through it, and get comfortable with my trigger pull and sight picture. Anybody advise against the 22/45?Originally Posted by Sarcastro
