The shear versatility and destructive power of the shotgun make it the first gun I suggest a new gun owner buy. They are simple enough to operate,can be used to hunt large game,small game,and waterfowl. Can be used to skeet and trap shoot for a past time,and is the ideal gun to pull Home Defense duty whenever its not being used to do one of those things.
I'm also a fan of modern sporting rifles such as an AR or AK's. and while an AR can take small to medium sized game,and the AK can stretch to Large game hunting. They are only suitable for those things,when not sitting in the closet,waiting for such a time when you may need them for two legged game. Most people have no use for them besides this,as they are not usually suitable for any type of home defense unless you are sitting on a lot of land.
I don't mention uses for plinking because every gun is good for that lol.
EVERYONE NEEDS a 12 gauge shotgun.
