The 5 Best Firearms for New Gun Owners

Posted by Justin on

New gun owners have a dizzying array of choices when purchasing their first couple of firearms. 

But this staggering diversity of choice can also be an intimidating factor – how can you know which firearms you should choose when there are so many?  

Let’s break down 5 of the best firearms for new gun owners:


5. Glock 19

The Glock 19 is a classic, compact pistol from one of the most reliable lines ever created. Glocks are renowned for their versatility, modifiability, and durability over the long-term. 

G19s come chambered for 9 mm by default, making them good self-defense weapons and excellent target shooting weapons in general. 


Furthermore, the G19 is compact enough that you can often carry it so long as you have a concealed carry license. It’s a good long-term weapon that you can modify as you go using various attachments, too.

4. Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0

The Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 is one of the most common duty service pistols that’s also chambered for 9 mm.

It’s an excellent self-defense and target shooting weapon, and it’s pretty close in size to the Glock 17, meaning it shouldn’t be too large or too small for anyone’s hands. 

It typically benefits from aggressive texturing on the handgrip, as well as an easy to access safety.

It’s a phenomenal choice if you need a solid overall handgun that’ll last for quite a while to come.

3. Ruger 10/22

Need a basic rifle for small game hunting or target shooting?

Try the Ruger 10/22, one of the most renowned .22 rimfire rifles that were ever created.

Since it’s been on the market for so long, you’ll have a lot of choices in terms of aftermarket parts of accessories so you can customize your rifle according to your needs. 

It’s quite a fun rifle to shoot and it’s great for teaching basic hunting skills due to its light recoil and ease-of-use.

2. Ruger American

What if you need to hunt some big game? In that case, the Ruger American rifle is an affordable choice that’s well-known for its accuracy.

You can get this rifle in a bunch of different calibers and versions, depending on what you need so you can tailor your purchase according to your preferred targets. 

Most models do come with adjustable triggers and excellent out-of-the-box accuracy. Try this if you want a consistent, reliable hunting rifle that you won’t need to tinker with for too long before heading out into the field.

1. Remington 870 Express

Beginners who want a shotgun would do well to consider the Remington 870 Express.

This is a pump-action shotgun that’s great for upland hunting and, if push comes to shove, home or property defense.

It comes in all three major shotgun gauge variations, plus an elegant and simplistic aesthetic that most hunters will appreciate.

Even better, it comes in compact and “Jr.” versions in case you want to enjoy the 870 Express with less recoil or want to use it when teaching a teenager how to get the job done.

All in all, any of the above five firearms will be great choices if you’re a beginner to shooting in general.

Let us know what you think after giving them a spin for yourself! 

Thank you for reading, stay strong patriots.
