Someone online, at my encouragement, asked me some gun questions. Her text is below. I’m more of a target shooter than a hunter. Please let me know what you all would say to her! Thanks in advance for your help.
“My current 5 year plan is to set up a small homestead in northern Minnesota. Moose, bear, wolves, deer and other such critters are commonplace.
As a nearly middle aged woman who has never held a gun – whats the best starter weapon for me? I’m thinking some kind of rifle, something that would be good for property protection as well as eventual hunting.
My husband was an expert marksman with the military, so I’m sure he could help me learn to use it well. That said, he never used guns before the Army and not since, so its not an area we know much about.”
