Hello! First let me say thanks for all the good info you guys post here. I have learned a lot reading these forums in the last hour. I have seen some posts asking about tips on what your first gun should be etc. Seems like most people want a gun that has some power and yet is a good beginner rifle. I personally just need something simple. I have never fired gun and I don't need anything crazy. Seems from what I can understand a .22 is the way to go. Any tips on what I should get or thoughts would be appreciated! Two questions i did have: What brands can I really trust? Should I buy new or used? Thanks again!
