Marlin XL7---25-06, 30-06, .270
Marlin X7---7mm-08, .243, .308


Plus, there are several .22 that are cheap too.

All of these guns can be had for a low price. The AK tends the be the most expensive at around $400-$600. The Mosin Nagant, Nagant Revolver, and Steyr Mannlicher (somewhat pricy ammo) are the cheapest at about $100 each. The ammo is also pretty cheap. The cheapest would either be the .22, or the 7.62x54R ($0.17 per round) (Mosin Nagant).
MOST of the guns on this list are in the $200-$300 range depending on where you get them, and their condition. Most of the ammo one this list is in the $0.20-$0.30 range per round.

.223, .243, 30-30, and 7mm Remington Mag are also all good rounds.

Be sure to check prices on the ammo too. Some of these rounds can be pricy compared to others.

Hope this helps.

so far you guys got a good start, you seem to have a well rounded collection between you & your buddies.

Hi Point is another option for the budget minded, hands down better than any other handgun in that price range & available in 9mm, 40, & 45. they also make carbines in those calibers which are alot of fun to shoot.

the savage Axis line usually runs $270ish at walmart, no matter the caliber. my local stores carry them in .223, .243, .270, & .30-06. in my opinion, great guns for the money, very accurate.

you could also keep an eye out for a used JC higgins or ted williams pump shotgun. they usually start at around $100 go up from there depending on condition.

I love shooting clay birds in the backyard. A shotgun is a great way to get out and wear out your shoulder for reasonable prices. I grab a box of 90 birds and 100 shells for the 12guage at wallyworld for like 30 bucks and my buddy and I always have a good time! Shooting still papers is one thing but moving birds with a higher recoil shotty is just so much fun!!! For that matter I like to put a few birds on the ground at ranges from 40 to about 80 yards and try to shoot them with my 9mm pistol and my sks. Both have only the open sights so it is a point of pride when I can hit my targets without running through too many rounds...

The most fun gun I have ever fired was an M1 carbine. I think a Mosin is a good budget-minded choice. Other potentially fun guns would be:
SKS
AK
Lever action .357/.38, .44, .45
Mini 14/Mini 30

If money is no object, the FN P-90 carbine is probably a hoot. And I think the FN FS-2000 and the Steyer AUG would both be awesome.
One of my personal favorites is a Savage 93 .22 mag with a heavy barrel. I love shooting playing cards, charcoal briquettes, or empty shotshells at 100 yards with it.

My latest fun gun is an Uzi (no, not an MG, just a semi-auto rifle with the 16" barrel and a wood stock). But what a fun plinker. Not totally cheap, about $800.00 but who doesn't want to own an Uzi?
