What does private seller mean? I've heard the term before but can't find a real definition same as open carry

Well idk about your state youll have to check local laws but in texas it's illegal for an 18 year old to purchase a hand gun or own one in his own house so if you get your dad to by you a gun and keep it at their house or yours to if you still live there till your 21 I'm pretty sure thats the law in all states. So ya take a look at an sks or ak at your next gun show also a mossberg 500 is great and right around 300. Also private seller means like your friend down the street who has a bunch of handguns. Also open carry is a law in states like Az where it is legal to carry a hand gun on your side with no license as long as its not concealed

A lot depends on what you want to shoot. Paper targets or clay. Do you have a range you can use. Most pistol ranges won't let you shoot rifles there.

Remember ammo can be very expensive. 308 for my bolt action is about $1 a round. My 44 mag ammo can go $1 a round also. Shotguns for bird shot are around $7 for a box of 25.

I would look at a 22 for a 1st gun. Like a Ruger 10-22. Its in your price range and you can buy a box of 550 rounds for $20. You could shoot all day for very little cash. This is the way most shooters learn the basics.

AZ does not require a license to carry concealed.

The age limit is a sore point with me. An 18 year old can fight and die for his country but is not allowed to own a handgun or vote. Either change the military age to 21 or change the gun laws and voting age.

Good advice! I do love my Mossy, and it is beside my alarm clock with an 18.5" barrel.

Maverick 88 *12 ga* is about 250$-280$ and is made by mossberg, those are a nice starter gun. since your limit is 400$ you could just buy a mossberg 500 or remington 870 *equal quality just what feels nicer to you* or as others have mentioned an Sks but for home defense I wouldn't recomend it. If you want something for HD and range time id go with a shotgun. Good luck, let us know what you come up with!

Look around for a NEF protector pump. Got mine for 180 at a LGS, its an 870 clone.

The pardner pump is also a clone of the 870. yes if I were you id go with a shotgun the shotgun is a very versatile weapon you can take down anything from ,rabit birds, to buffulo to deer you can breach doors you can use diffrent ammo for diffrent things it is a multi pourpose tool
