Ruger 10/22 as starter rifle
I always advise a person that wants to buy a rifle for the first time to get a Ruger 10/22 as a starter rifle. My first starter rifle was the reputable Ruger 10/22. A very classic and well made long-arm that after 48 years of being in production is still going strong. The Ruger .22 rimfire is one of those rifles that any gun enthusiast must must own (like a Remington 870, and a 1911) . The 10/22 is a fantastic survival gun, and even defensive gun in some cases. It is the benchmark for all .22 rimfire riffles. In properly trained hands a 10/22 has a lot of potential for lethality at a 100 yard range.
