I was in your position a few years ago. When I was 18 I had a BPS 12ga, A-bolt 7mm and a bushmaster 20” A2, plus a few .22’s that I had since I was very young. I had good friends from high school who have gone shooting with me since and were very surprised because they never knew I owned an AR. Still have all three and love shooting that A2.

Little friendly advice, when you buy a gun put the same amount of money into a savings account. If you ever come across any unexpected bills you will have an option other than selling a gun.

Good luck, good shooting and be safe.

That is so true...a buddy of mind had to sell his H&K G3A3 because of some unexpected bills that came up....but you bet i learned real fast....

Majestic, welcome to ARF! Glad to see your interest in long guns. It's amazing that not long ago a man was measured by how good he could shoot. The "ride fast, shoot straight" era of our culture. Today, if you have those interests you are likely to be called a "gun nut". I wish you the best in finding other responsible 19 year olds with similar interests.

I am 19. I have a Springfield M1A Standard, an AR-15A2 I built myself on a Ameetec Lower, a Mosin Nagant M38, a Russian SKS, a Remington Model 700 PSS in a McMillan stock, an FN BDA marked 9mm Kurz, and a EAA Polymer Witness fullsize in 9mm. I do know how to shoot them all quite well, though I am better with a rifle then a handgun. My car is a POS. Nice to have you onboard!

Oh, my roommate is not on ARFCOM but once a week or so, and he has only made a very few posts, but he is 19 and has a Mk4 Enfield, a DDay Commemorative M1 Garand, and a Mauser.
