Pls help me in buying a gun
 
Hi!
I wanted to gift my husband a semi automatic for his birthday. He likes to do target practice. Budget is about 300 $.
Any good guns out there for this price?
Thx.

Please stop by the introduction area and let everyone know you are here.

What kind of weapon are you looking for? Target, self defense, a combination of things?? $300 isn't much to work with in the world of solid semi autos but a clearer picture of what he might be using it for would help narrow it down.

Does he want a rimfire (.22) or centerfire? There's a bunch of semiauto .22s out there for less than 300 dollars. 300 dollars will get a SKS in the centerfire category.

That's what I was thinking. Not much for target use, but cheap and fun to shoot! It's a good rifle for home defense too. The SKS that is.

I will restate what I put in the Intro. Take a look at a Ruger P90. Good Pistol in your budget range.

if he has an AR15 get him a .22LR conversion for it. the CMMG ones are currently top rated and run between 125-160

Semi automatic WHAT?

Pistol? Rimfire or centerfire? ("rimfire" would be for the 22 LR cartridge)
Lots of rimfire in your price range, just a few centerfire.

Rifle? Again---Rimfire or centerfire?
Same thing--lots of rimfire under $300, not many centerfire.

Shotgun? I'm assuming not shotgun--usually you don't hear the term
"target practice" associated with shotguns, although that's really
what shooting clays is.

And the question no-one has asked yet--how soon is his birthday?

I'm thinking he probably doesn't have an AR by reading her post. I'm just sayin'...

Rupa, have any of the recommendations helped you at all? Echo...echo...echo.

Did I miss the Intro?

I read this and your intro. You sound like my wife, really. If you want to give him a rifle that will not break the bank, look at a CZ 452. I guess the new model is a 455. If you check out a few shops you may find one for slightly higher than you wished, But your hubby will be blown away. You can also look for a Model 1944 U.S. target gun. I still find them for $175.00..200.00 normally. Stay away from a Ruger 10/22. Biggest money pit on the planet. I know of a Winchester 75. I'm sure the price would be in your range. It is missing the magazine. They sell for $700.00+ these days. I will help find a mag if you are interested. A Marlin 60 is a great choice for a semi. Make sure to scope it as the sights suck. With your budget, a .22lr is where it is at. They are still cheap to feed.

Here is a link to a Mossberg, not a 1944 U.S. model, but gives you an idea.
