My dads old Marlin 60 that was made in the late 60's. Still have it to this day, but havent shot it 10 years. But just cleaned it about a month ago. I just bought my oldest son his first rifle, he will be eight in March, and i picked up a ruger 10/22 for him for Christmas, but waiting untill end of March, early April to take him out to shoot it. Its still pretty cold in Michigan

My first gun was Smith & Wesson M&P 40 but I'm about to buy my first rifle...a Remmy 700 SPS Varmint.

Both good IMHO

How old are you? Have you ever handled a rifle before? If so what have you shot and what did you like best?

I just cant wait to buy me a Loki upper but I can't decide if I want a 5.56 or 300 blk I know I like to shoot but I also want it for home defense and I know the 5.56 round isnt really a big heart stopper in close quarter ingagments I'd like any of your opinions?

I assume you're looking for a rifle, so start with a .22 long rifle from any of the major manufacturers. Ruger 10/22, Marlin 60, Smith & Wesson 15-22, Savage, etc.
