    If I was starting over from zero I'd find a lever action 30/30, a pump 12 gauge, a single shot 22, and a police trade in Glock 9mm or 40s&w..... That would get me by for pretty much everything to start with and I'd be looking in pawn shops and gun shows mostly for those.

    To add to your current collection I'd add a quality bolt action 308 with and excellent optic. Loaded with 125-130s a 308 will out 270 a 270 and loaded with 178s it kill lots of thing at a pretty good distance.

    I would suggest a good .22 handgun. Ruger Mark II with adjustable sight would be hard to beat.

    For the .22 handgun I prefer a revolver for one single reason - it takes more purpose and thought to pull the trigger of a single action than to rapid fire an auto. For training kids I prefer the former.

    The first two guns I bought were a Ruger Convertible Single Six and a Super Blackhawk in 44Mag. That was before we had the boys.
