Seriously though, Im just getting into this and Ive always wanted one but being a law abiding immigrant you couldnt own one.
Any recommendations for a good piece to learn to shoot? Nothing crazy, but something to practice with and something that is affordable ammo-wise.
First off, Congratulations on Citizenship.
Secondly, You should take a firearms safety course before you do anything at a nearby gunshop and they try out different pieces. Figure out what you want. For sport, plinking, hunting, self defense, revolver or auto..... There are thousands of handguns to choose from and you need to narrow down and eliminate most of them.
