I'd go with 9mm. It's the cheapest of the big bore ammo. Plus there's a huge selection of guns from 150 dollar hi points for the range to h&k usp. It all a matter of what you want it for. I believe you also asked in another forum about a glock or xd. Both of those were 9pm also. Then you wouldn't need lots of different ammo plus you can find cheap carbines if you want a rifle.

Yeah, 9mm is decently priced and I plan on getting one, but I was wanting a dif. caliber rifle (for distance) that wasnt too much more expensive than a .22

How much range? How much accuracy? There are a scant few 9mm carbines out there. For less than 50yds, the Hi-Point ain't bad. More than 50yds and you'll probly want to look at AR-15 9mm carbines.

What about .17 or 22Mag?

From what I just saw about 4x 22LR
Twice as much $$ for half as many rounds.

+1 on that. Next cheapest is probably a ak47 or sks in 7.62x39. Can get those as cheap as .20-.25 cents a round.

Get a Mosin 91/30 for under a hundred bucks...ammo is relatively cheap and they're wicked fun to shoot. My M44 has become a fun plinker.

I also saw somewhere that beretta made a carbine. If you want distance go with an ak or a cheap ar or mini 14. If you buy bulk you can get the ammo for either pretty cheap. It does take long to go through 1000 rounds with one of those. The first thing is figure out what kind of shooting your going to be doing the most with it and decide from there. Don't know where you shoot but remember some indoor ranges don't allow higher powered rifles. You don't want to buy something that is a pain to go shoot.
