        I would have to know what quarry you are pursuing. I have a Franchi 12ga that I have use for everything. It is made by Bennelli. I skeet/trap shoot with it. I have duck/pheasant/quail/ptarmigan/rabbit hunted with it. I can even put slugs through it with the proper choke tube. One thing that I would tell you if you are going to get a rifle and a handgun is try to get interchangable ammo (i.e. .44 Ruger Single Six, and a .44 Marlin Lever Action).

            I like the .30 30 or .243...I use them for deer and coyotes. Their strong enough to take down deer and small enough that it doesnt tear the coyote fur. Get some orange, warm clothes, a good knife, and you'll be pretty well set. Good luck

              Some people are born into this experience called hunting usually from family members or friends but some of us take it up later in life, and there is much to learn. Find a fellow hunter who is honest in his answers and ask a lot questions. Any and every question that comes to mind. Most begining hunters I know their first purchase is a warm camo jacket. Because the first person to take them hunting has the killing equipment. The guy I helped get started hunting years ago carried my buck out of the woods for me last season that is, after he saw for the first time how to gut and field dress it. Hunting in its purest form is the goodness of man and the Greatness of God.

                well I'll take a shot in the dark here, so to speak. Starting from the ground up;
                Boots, get good ones warm with plenty of arch support hiking boots are about 6" tall most hunting boots are 8"
                Socks wool, I like the hiking socks you get at Wal-Mart for about 12 bucks
                Layer your clothes if it cold with some insulated underwear or sweats, if its wet of there is a possiblity of getting wet a wool or poly pro will come in handy.
                outer, I wear bib overals Carhartt either lined or unlined shirt, thick and tough, wear an undershirt to keep from getting chaped.
                coat as needed gloves as needed
                wear a hat.
                gun not having a clue what you're shooting at I will recomend a 12 gauge shotgun pump action.
                a good knife, Buck makes some good ones as do others with no less than a 3" blade.
                License and permits, ink pen, lighter, watch, a day pack with "stuff" bullets,
                now go find someone that hunts whatever your planning on hunting and refine your plan.
                that's about all I can give you with what information I have

                    I think that i depends on where you live. i live in georgia and i dont need tall insulated boots with wool socks or a thick insulated coat.The coldest it ever gets during the day during deer season is the 40s.You are going to need a rifle for deer and other big game and a shotgun for turkeys and waterfowl.Make sure you have a hunters saftey before you go hunting even if the state doesnt require that you have i think you should since you know so little about hunting.

                      I would recommend a Remington 870 pump shotgun!
