Re: New to Firearm Ownership, Need Advice
Welcome to the Forum, I have a little experience...as I had to recently make those same decisions. I guarantee there are a ton of fella's here that can help way more than me, but I thought I might as well kick it off.
I separate sport and home defense, so that's already two different guns for me.
For home defense, I chose a Mossberg 12 gauge pump action shotgun. It’s reliable and easy to use.
I also have a pistol. I view my pistol as my weapon until I get to my shotgun or depending on the situation my rifle.
I think both are a good start and don't have many cons to either one. Most of the cons are dependent on your environment or personal prefrences.
Being new as well, I opted to do lots of training and practice.
