BVAC, once used brass, bulk reloads, 10.49 /50 rds. $173/1000 rds. good for plinking and range stuff. Then of course there's the market hall gun show next weekend.....
Goddamn, you guys are lucky. The cheapest brass case I've found around here is Monarch from Academy at around $16 and it's usually sold out. Rem UMC is usually $20-$23.

Dick's sale price on Remington UMC 9mm is $11.98/box, regular price is $14.99/box. I believe you must buy a case, however, for that price.

Dude, if you already know what you want then just go ahead and buy it.

You will never be happy settling for something else. You will only waste money by buying something else, and then later going out buying what you originally wanted anyway!

+1 for SGAmmo. Reasonable prices and reasonable shipping, too. Just received some 7.62x54 and some 8mm.

It is time for a youth gun

Tell me about the good ones. My son has been shooting since he was old enough to pull a trigger but he has never had "his" gun. I want to buy him one that fits.He shoots my guns with the stock under his arm. I've looked at the criket and don't like it. There is a Mossberg that looked good. It had a fake mag that you could replace with a real one I kinda liked that idea.

Anything single shot, bolt action or lever action with iron sights. That way he can really learn the basics. A semi with a scope will teach bad habits early, IMHO.

I bought my oldest an Anschutz 22LR which was completely wasted on him as he has no interest in shooting. Maybe I will have a grandson someday who will appreciate it. My youngest I got a Rossi .22LR/.410 combo. It was too hard for him to open and lock the breach when he was small so he got frustrated with it. But when I put the .410 barrel on it he really grinned. He loved the visceral feedback from the boom of the 410. Much more satisfying than the plink of the 22LR.

At the last gun show I bought about five different types of 9MM FMJ ammo, all name brand (PMC, Federal, etc.) for $12 or less per 50 per box (not case lots). Now I will take them out and try them at the range and the ones that work the best I will buy a case of 500 for practice ammo.

It isn't hard to get at those prices.

Call me weird, but I have always liked .22 rimfire rifles ever since I was a kid. I still think they are the most fun gun to shoot and I have shot just about every caliber there is including the big boomers.

My oldest at about 11 years old wanted a BB gun, I said no-- But, IF he would earn half the money, I would help him buy any .22 rifle he wanted.

Being more driven then than he is now, he went and hauled heavy irrigation hose/pipe foe a couple weekends, and came back with $80 or so.

We went down and got a little savage single shot youth model for like $120. It has been outstanding . He became a good shot, learned not to waste ammo. The stumpy thing is a tack driver out to 75 yrds. Easily handled, even off hand for a little guy.

My oldest "sold" is half to my youngest last year.

A single shot is a good idea for a first firearm. Learn about safety, like muzzle control. A .22 is great too, because the noise and recoil are so low, a shooter will more easily develop good habits like squeezing the trigger and no flinching.
