Talking I decided to get a rifle.

Well just thinking about it, I decided I'm going to be getting a rifle once I have some money saved up. I don't know how many of you have rifles, (auto or semi-auto), but if you can tell me what some of your experiences have been and what you like the best, I would be appreciative.

I have a rifle, just because I like shooting. I still suck though.

My first and only gun as of now is a Savage Arms .17 HMR.

Depending on where you live, there are permits you can get for fully-automatic weapons. Not cheap and takes a long time to get.

I want a rifle for self defense, target practice, and deer/ elk hunting. I'm still deciding on a caliber though and what to get. Any good brands you guys like? Favorite Caliber?

Best choice for hunting in my area is the .30-06. When my friends go deer hunting, and get asked what rifle they used, they almost all answer with that. Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.30-06

Another popular rifle in my area because the gun along with the ammo is so cheap is the .22 This would be a good rifle to just shoot for target practice and is good for smaller game animals. Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.22_Long_Rifle

What really helps is to have close friends who have a collection of guns and ammo and who will trust you enough to test them. It really depends on personal preference after you have narrowed it down to what you wish to do with the rifle itself.

You should also check out the AR-15. Some people in my area use those deer rifles. There are full auto and semi auto versions. Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AR-15

I like the looks of the AR-15. That's actually the exact kind of think I was thinking of. Thanks SimBoy.

I have a 243 Winchester. Depending on the grain of the bullet, it's good for varmint, deer, black bear, and antelope. It's old, but a very trustworthy piece.
