Looking to buy
Im in the market for a firearm, I dont have too much money, and want something thats big enough to have fun at the range and a effective home defense as well, if anyone knows some where they sell for cheaper, id appreciate the help

See if you can find an SKS rifle at your next gunshow or visit the pawn shops. I love my SKS.

How much does one usually go for?

orangello 09-06-2012 07:30 PM

It varies; i paid about $325 or $350 for a Chinese model with an aftermarket stock and a little ammo. The availability of inexpensive ammo is what makes them a good deal (7.62x39mm).

How about a 12GA? Cheap models like the Mavrick 88 and Stevens 320 can be had for just north of $200 and are effective for home defense if that will be the primary purpose. Throw in another $100 and get a mosin for range fun :D.

12ga remington 870 express magnum.

Endless aftermarket stuff, and for the price it doesn't get any better

If you would be OK with the giant-azz bayonet for the follow-up shot, you could spend about $100 and get a Mosin Nagant rifle, another $100 for about 400 rounds of ammo.

What's your budget and would you rather have a handgun or rifle

Truth22530 09-07-2012 08:28 PM

Budget is up to 400$ personally a rifle is best since I'm 18 so ya..

18 year olds cant buy handguns unless its from a private seller hmm yea id go with either an sks or a 12 guage you can put slugs in a 12 guage it throws some big azz slugs downrange and you can buy a rifled barrel that makes them fly even straighter its a really versatile tool you can use it for almost everything check out mossberg 500 they sell a combo barrel one short for home defense and one long when I was 18 that was my first gun and still love to this day.
