I'll be honest, I don't really have a deep interest in guns, except in a historical context. But lately, I've felt a want to get one of those single barrel shotguns. Something light with like five moving parts that can shoot whatever weird shell I put in it just seems appealing to me. Maybe a revolver too to complement it.
Can I get some recommendations or advice?

    You can do that shit with a pump shotgun and the heavier gun will be more pleasant to shoot. For the revolver, get a GP100 or s&w.686. both great.

      Even then I'd probably get a double barrel because I like the break action.

      Get a .50 cal blackpowder rifle and pistol, it's historical and you get to fiddle with gunpowder and make a lot of smoke and flash. The historicalness is just a plus.

      Now this is a good idea

      I have a very similar fascination with double barreled shotguns though after looking into it they arent nearly as simple as I expected. A lot of shit you would at first think is pretty easy to maintain and repair is surprisingly complicated without proper tools. Revolvers are another good example. Mess up the timing and you turn it into a handgrenade.

      I see, I'll have my work cut out for me then

      go to local gun store
      see what they have in stock
      you can probably find something at around the $150 mark
      you could order online, but then you're going to have to pay for shipping and FFL fees.

      Probably a good idea, even if it's a bit of a drive

      You have fine tastes and I have english sidelocks and revolvers. The quality on the high to medium trade guns is incredible but each one was hand made. Same for French mid 19th century side by side percussion guns

      No they don't aya cosmos for example is a fine gun.

      It looks beautiful, I may look around for one.

      Get a historical gun anon youll love it way more. At this moment old feild shotguns are pretty cheap right now and have alot of charector and history. Alot of the single shots kinda suck and you can get a pump for the same price. Muzzle loaders are cool and i think youd like one.
      Make a list of guns from historical events that you're interested in and head to a few local gun shops and see what they have and what stands out to you. A trench gun , old double barrel feild gun, auto5/rem1200 old police 870 or a muzzle loader shot gun or rifle

      >'ll be honest, I don't really have a deep interest in guns, except in a historical context.
      Then just buy historic guns, that's what I did
      Collecting pre-1898 is particularly easy (unless you're into Confederate shit). 20th century guns a bit more difficult but save up and be patient enough to wait for a deal to turn up

      Probably the best advice in the thread.

      >Then just buy historic guns, that's what I did
      This is mainly my thing too and I can't argue with it for enjoyment of ownership. These are the must have modern guns though

      12 gague side by side sidelock hammer gun in 12 gague
      quality 22LR bolt action with threaded barrel and scope
      decent springer .177 air rifle
      36 and 44 Italian percussion revolvers
      semi auto 12 gauge with set of chokes
      Decent centrefire scoped rifle in 270 or 308 etc
      decent semi auto 22 for plinking
      lever action in 44 or 357
      revolver in 44 or 357
      semi auto pistol in 9mm
      revolver in 38 spl
      semi auto pocket pistol in 380
      a decent Hämmerli pistol and anschultz rifle
      Set of dies for reloading the rifles and pistols
      reloading setup for the shotgun
      presses and bullet moulds
      The AR/Glock thing is garbage dump people, children who don't actually own or shoot guns trying to belong, people who play vidya and don't own guns and consumers who buy whatever is advertised at them. If you absolutely must buy a CF semi auto rifle buy either a real G3 or a good Belgian FAL

    get a pardner single shot in either 20 gauge or 12 gauge and get Heritage Rough Rider as a cheap to shoot sidearm. With this you can shoot clays, tin cans, hunt, or larp as a cowboy. All for incredibly cheap.

    Hard to mess up a single barrel shotgun. Singles tend to be far, far cheaper than doubles anyways, so it's probably best for your break-open needs unless you have that much money to throw around. If so, go ahead and splurge on the double for aesthetics sake if nothing else, I would.
    For a revolver, depends what you want. Single action? SAA clones are abundant, a Ruger is great if you plan to beat it the fuck up since they're not too expensive or you could get an Uberti and have something that's actually superior to the originals in terms of quality but otherwise mechanically the same. If you'd like a double action, I'd recommend either an older Smith and Wesson (not nuSmith, fuck them for bending the knee and adding the Hillary holes) or the GP100 or similar from Ruger. Could also spend some time looking for even rarer pieces if you really have the money and means. I remember I missed out on a Nagant revolver, which I wanted because it's a nice curiosity, it feels good in the hand, and something about a 7-shot juiced .32 revolver appeals to me.
    But I waited a day and lost it because I'm a goddamn retard. It was in such good condition too, and they had ammo for it.
    I'm willing to bet I'll never see another one again, if God blesses me and I chance upon another one I'm buying it immediately.

        For one, I've heard pretty poor things about them, like how they can get stuck and your gun is bricked for no good reason. But mostly it's about the principle of it, they don't need to keep these either yet they've doubled down and insisted that pre-emptively following gun control restrictions is good, even when said restrictions never came to pass in the first place.
        Anyways, I like the older ones more too. I have a .32 Hand Ejector from 1920, shoots so well I'd CC it if it wasn't a literal relic at this point. For whatever reason the older ones seem to have more "care" put into their construction, makes them seem more like the work of a craftsman rather than an assembly line. Hard to describe, it's the little touches that count.

          I'll take that into consideration, even if I don't mind them personally.
          I'm looking around for something in 22, I don't feel a need to go any bigger and it's affordable. It's been difficult to find one that doesn't look modern in double action, which I prefer

            > something in 22
            >one that doesn't look modern in double action
            So to be clear, an older-looking DA revolver in .22?
            Well, I know what I said about Smiths, but if you don't mind them I found this in a few seconds. In the budget?
            https://www.sportsmansoutdoorsuperstore.com/products2.cfm/ID/111248
            6 shot .22, DA, and looks like a classic Model 10
            If not in the budget or you want more capacity and versatility, I found this one (there's not a price but it's a Rock Island, it's bound to be cheaper than the alternatives)
            https://palmettostatearmory.com/rock-island-al22m-8rd-22mag-revolver-stainless-al22m.html
            8 shot, can take .22 magnum, DA, but looks a little more modern than the Smith above. Could possibly swap the grip for some wood and get about what you want with this in terms of look and feel

              That's a bit out of my range, I did see it previously.
              I could probably just get a newer one and swap the grip for wood.

              While I highly recommend the Ruger Wrangler for a cheap .22lr single action revolver, if you want more classic aesthetics you should check out Cimarron Firearms. They import Italian made guns and specialize in cowboy stuff.

              I'll take a look now.
              How's Chiappa? They seem like they're too cheap frankly, but they do have this one .22 SAA with a tall 10-round cylinder which looks kind of neat.

                Absolutely nothing wrong with getting a single barrel break-action 12-gauge as a first gun.

                I'm glad you're like-minded.

                I'd really recommend a multi-barrel shotgun, because trust me reloading is going to get annoying if you are going to be just dicking around with it.

                Well, if you had to recommend one at a reasonable price point, what would you?

    If you like historical stuff, get a cap and ball reproduction revolver. If you ever get tired of blasting gigantic clouds of black smoke you can always get a conversion cylinder and shoot modern equivalent rounds. Get a steel frame Pietta, you won't regret it.
