    It would by default have to be a handgun - seeing as my priority would be carry.

    I agree Chris, a pistol.

    A wheelie of course which is the first Handgun i bought too but i had all ready had a pistol given to me.

    But a 357 could double for plinking and self defense just fine especially if you didn't have a lot of cash

    i voted shotgun. you can't carry it, concealed anyways, but with different barrels, loads, etc. it seems to cover a lot of uses.

    I'd repurchase a suitable CCW gun for immediate use, then a .22, then a centerfire rifle, then a shotgun.

    Go from there.

    If my first gun, it have to be a shot gun or rifle, due to me being only 18 at the time, but as soon as I was 21, I'd get that pistol.

    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
