    Hey jaysdragon-
    Check out a good lever action from Marlin, depending on your area if long shots are the norm, then I would look into a bolt gun.If you are not recoil concerned, I recommend the .270,.308, or 30/06 for bolts. While the lever gun(Marlin models) will be a choice between the 30-30, .35 Remington, .444 Marlin, or the old .45/70. OR In the Lever guns you could but a pistol chambering.
    Oh, one last suggestion;Think used gun for your first purchase no need to invest too much in new items just in case your first gun doesn't fit your fancy for long.

      The Stainless T/C Encore rifle is unbeatable for quality, appearance, and versatility. Start with a .22 barrel with open sights. Then put a scope on it and learn all about tha. Then a .223 and a .243, and make your own decision where to go next. 7mm Rem Mag? Shotgun?
