When shooting unsupported, a rifle has 4 points.

Not going to shoot well without the proper "check weld"

Pay $500-$600 for a good beretta 92fs in 9mm if it was my money.

I pretty much agree. But I also say the same thing about a good wheel gun.

Great point - even though it's .22 it still provides good practice on firing a handgun.

Magnums and 9mm are nice!! But if you really have a passion to shoot get you a nice 22lr revolver!! 10 to 15 cents a round vs some of the higher end mag loads approaching a dollar a round!!

All the post I'm reading, it looks like basically everyone is is talking about defense firearms, I now, I now they can be use d for other things, but, I think I would be looking at something in the MEAT getting department. I would be keeping it as simple as possible. As for the $ amount,,,,,,,,,can look into new and used,,,,,,,,I would be looking at Ruger Blackhawk 6 1/2 357 mag. (Or the super blackhawk in 44 mag) And the Ruger SingleSix 6 1/2 22/22mag. Ruger also makes a Single Ten,,,,,, which is the single-six but made for 10 RDS. Of 22lr. Good luck in your quest.
