I'm not even a hunter and the question frustrates me.
1) What is the firearm needed for? Hunting? okay
2) What game is being hunted? Big? Small? Fowl?
3) What caliber is best for that game?
4) What gun fits my budget/terrain/caliber?
You're missing a lot of pieces here. And you're going out on Friday?
