best value BP .50
I would suggest your friend come on here. Talk to us about his experiences as a shooter.
What he wants from the rifle. What he wants to do with the rifle.
What he expects to shoot.
He want traditional styling or the (ichh) new inlines with plastic.
Does he want to target / plink or hunt or re-enactments.
Squirrels or pronghorn or white tail or muley or Elk etc.
Does he want round ball, conical or newer sabots?
If all you look at is price he is bound to be disappointed.
