My first gun that I bought a few years ago when I was 18 was the pardner pump, I put a pistol grip and an adjustable stock on it along with an led light. That's what sits next to my bed and my first choice if I need a weapon. I also after that purchase I bought a mosin, for $80 its the best deal on a gun I've ever got

I too support a shotgun. Rifles indoors can be hazardous in that the projectiles of many calibers can carry through walls and light obstructions... shotguns also don't require as precise a shot placement ti do their job...

If I'm not mistaken, 18 year olds can vote.

How important is the home defense part of the equation? If it is not really high up (don't live in a high crime area) then you might consider a .22 rimfire. That was my first gun, a Marlin 60. I still have it and I am in my late 40's. The Ruger 10/22 is also a good choice, lots of after market stuff for them is available (they are like the small block Chevy of guns). A .22 rifle, while not ideal, can be used for home defense but a shotgun would be a better choice. The .22 also has the big advantage of having cheap ammo.

I have to agree with vikingdad. Given your budget you can get a model 60 and a maverick 88. Walmart has the model 60 for $175 and the maverick 88 for around $200. I don't know what the tax rate is in your home state but you should be real close.
