Post Guns...
So my younger brother took me out shooting the other day. I found this to be great fun.

My question is do any of you go shooting for leisure, and what sorts of firearms do you shoot? Second question, what would be a good idea for a newb?

I figure I could go with something dirt cheap to cut my teeth on, the move up to something of a better quality when I'm ready to. I'm not looking for something for home defense... (where I live I'm sure everyone else is better armed...)

I really have no preference, rifles, handguns, etc..

Just smash the clay pigeons by throwing the gun itself then.

Free workout !

Just got back from doing that. Yesterday, I picked up a mossberg 500 with a 28'' barrel. I went from 40% to 80% accuracy in two days of clay pigeon shooting, but I figure that still sucks as I'm shooting a shotgun.

I've had my 10/22 rifle for a long time. Definitely a great gun for beginners. Very easy to use, very cheap (rifle and .22 ammo) and very reliable. I've had mine for about 6 years and haven't had a single problem with it at all.
Another plus is there are almost endless customization options for it. I'm working on gettin the carbine conversion kit for it (m14 styled) but there are still tons of after market parts that are relatively cheap. I bought a retractable stock and a x4 scope for not much more than the rifle itself cost at the time (I paid $200 for the rifle, I'm not sure how much they are now)

I'll link a video for ya too
:)

PWS Custom

I would post more but there are SO many, you'll just have to search yourself.

Oh yeah. A 10/22 is still on my list. I did also pick up a Savage Mark II, don't really know why I wanted a bolt-action 22 but It is damn accurate on just iron sights. I love shooting Aguila SSS (subsonic sniper) ammo through it. Pretty quiet stuff.

Oooooh, those rounds sound nice! I'll have to look into those. And the bolt action on that PMS 10/22 is amazing on my dad's buddy's 22 rifle but I can't remember exactly what model he has...but you literally can pull it back with 2 fingers almost without taking your trigger finger hand off the grip at all...sooo smooth

I'm not much of a shooter, but I've tried using a rifle with the scope and that's some hard shit. Trying to get a good aim while lifting up the rifle and trying to focus the scope dead in line with your field of vision was a task. So I would probably stick with a shotgun. I like the old wooden shotguns. (Don't ask me the type of gun I was using cause I don't know.), but yeah target aiming with one of those babies. Good stuff!

(For some reason I'm not a pistol fan.)

No! you don't shoot firearms. Its much better to shoot squirrels. Or doves. WITH the firearm. You will damage the firearm if you shoot it :mrgreen:
