A European reader emailed us a photo of his first two guns which he purchased earlier this summer. A Ruger 10/22 is the perfect beginners rifle and an AR-15 is a solid choice for any shooter.
Earlier this summer I got my first guns and went out to the range to try them out. Ruger 10/22 Sporter Deluxe with a Harris bipod and 2-7x scope. The black rifle is an Oberland Arms OA-15 Black Label M5, a German made AR-15 clone with 16″ barrel and almost milspec except a non-standard threading for the flashhider.
Johannes my friend, prepare to have a lot less disposable income now that you have been bitten by the gun bug.
