I´ve got about an extra $300 so I´m thinking about picking up a .243 (or something like that) to go deer hunting with. Since I´m pretty much totally ignorant as far as guns go (the only guns I´ve even owned were a .22 and a 20 guage for squirrel hunting) I figured maybe someone could give me some suggestions. I´ll probably just be hunting around the woods/fields where I live in East TN. I just say that I´m looking for a .243 because I figure anything smaller might not do the job so other ideas would be welcome. Also, while your at it, you could suggest where I should try to find the gun. [The .22 I bought from a little gun shop and I think I got ripped off pretty badly and the 20 guage was from Wal-Mart ($80!).] Thanks.
