I'm in the market for a long gun for HD/fun. I see pros and cons to all but I'm not sure what makes the most sense for me. I have a 357 revolver so I thought a 357 Marlin would be a nice addition. A shotgun I can use for skeet shooting also but my wife is little and I want her to be able to practice with it a lot and she won't if it hurts after a few rounds. The ARs only real con is the price. What opinions/ideas do you have?
