Let's sum up:

Don't buy just one firearm! Buy about 6 (shotgun, 2 semi-autos, a revolver, a .22lr rifle, and an AR-15) and have all your needs covered.

Obviously, that only works for the fabulously wealthy, and with spouses that agree with the need for several thousand put into pieces of loud steel. But over time almost every gun will have children!

I love how dozens of us can see the question so differently, and yet here we all are, patriots who want to do what's right for our family.

+1 on this... I alternate slug with buckshot in case you need to clear a hallway or go thru the couch when he ducks behind it lol...

I would get an 870. Then you could easily get into something like trap and skeet. It is a great way to get familiar with the gun. I think one of the worst things to do is buy a gun and then just keep it in the closet in hopes that a BG doesn't break in. Plus it is just plain fun.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
