Great choice! The Mosin Nagant was my first rifle and the first firearm I purchased. I love mine to death and I know you'll love it too .

Be sure to have someone familiar with the Mosin Nagant present when you prep the rifle for its maiden shoot. Old surplus rifles need some work to get them ready for use.

Have you shot a HP rifle before?

And my response to your OP would be a PD/HD shotgun in 20ga.

I vote 20 guage pump mossberg 500 with 18.5" barrel and additional hunting barrel (26-28"). Nothing says GTHO like buckshot.

The Glock 23 is a great choice. I would pay the extra money for a gen 4 in my opinion.

Call me paranoid, but if i were helping a new handgun shooter along, i'd start them off with a firearm with a active safety (one they have to manually deactivate or switch to "fire").

Glock G23 G4 40S 13RD FS $549.00 SHIPS FREE

And Orangello is right about having an external saftey. I would recommend the Ruger SR40, because it has an external thumb saftey, trigger saftey, loaded chamber indicator, and magazine disconnect. I would advise you consider a firearm with an external thumb saftey, but that doesn't mean Glock isn't a great choice it's just they don't have any saftey except the trigger saftey and the saftey between your ears.

I understand. However, I have been around glocks my whole life. From my uncle to my dad. I have handled over 13 glocks.
