    This is one of the funniest/weirdest threads I've read through in a long time. I've done so with a great big grin on my face.

    But here's my sincere suggestion.

    Make a list of all of the firearms you will want to buy and think you could afford during the next 5-10 years. Separate this list into two lists with a short lineup of 5 or so priorities. Then start saving and watch for a screaming deal for anything on either list on gb or forums like this. I'm 31, I started when I was about 22 and I currently have more of a collection than I thought I would ever accumulate in my lifetime. When I was your age my lists looked about like this:

    Short
    -AR15
    -Mark 23
    -HK 91
    -22 handgun
    -22 rifle

    Long List
    -Short Shotgun
    -Field Shotgun
    -AK
    -PSG1
    -M1 Garand
    -1903a4
    -USP's
    -Custom bolt gun

    Remember too, all of the money you spend on ammo is gone forever, most of the money you spend on accessories/parts you'll never see again, but money spent on plain old used centerfire firearms can potentially be used over and over again.

    In your quest for the ideal first HK long gun, also keep an eye out for periods. In your post above, you have 315 words in three sentences. The first sentence alone is 175 words.

    GtN, We have all been where you are right now. Some of us have had a fortune invested in various guns only to have difficulty and lose them all. Some of us build our collections slower and more carefully than others who buy the arm d'jour and forget them in a corner of the safe where the rest of the gun sediment collects over the years. There's nothing wrong with dreaming, planning and scheming if that is what gets you to the goal eventually. My advice is for someone of your age to solve the cash flow problem as the 1st priority and, as you have done here, research so that when your iron is hot, you can strike with power and precision. I encourage you to get what you can as soon as reasonable and get training.....real training; professional training. It may not seem like it now, but you have a lifetime to amass and refine your collection. Best to build a financial foundation first. Good luck, brother.

    18 and can't find work.....join the Military. By the end of this year you will have all the money you need to start buying weapons, HK or otherwise.

    OP - I gave you my honest opinion in my first post, and I'll give you another. Everyone on the Forum is great and more than willing to help when you really need answers. The issue I think most people are having is the fact that your asking what you should get and you:
    A- you only have $25
    B- have indicated you don't have a means to change that now or even in the near future.
    C- HK and even the nice clones are amongst the most expensive firearms on the market. Most of the people here aren't passive collectors, we are truly HK enthusiasts. So it does to a point seem like your trolling.
    D- you only have $25 - I had to say this one twice.

    That being said, welcome to the site, do some research and maybe look for a $600 C93. That would be a great starting point for a very affordable HK style rifle.

    I try to be of good grammar and prose when writing. Run-on's are one of few issues that AP Lang./Comp and AP Literature have not helped my issues with doing on accident.

    The fact so many people in WA, me included, are on Vitamin D by prescription due to the cloudy climate in most months, or Seasonal Effective Disorder, as the case might be, yeah, near the end of the week after taking a D3 dose, or if it's too rainy or cold to go outside and be productive, it can be tough at times to keep morale up. The Social Media and other online forums frequent help with boredom, and to keep in touch with local friends when weather prohibits it.

    Thanks for the kind words. I've often had listed that, for various reasons, got lost on my harddrive of firearms that seems worthy of the investment given their reputation. The Mk.23 and USP.45 being two of many from HK for when my 21st birthday hits in a few years.

    I'm afraid for various physical health concerns, and a moral objection to signing the next several years away to such a stress-laden life as an Armed Forces one, especially in light of who the Commander-in-Chief became mere months before my age gave me a right and responsibility to vote this month, I'm afraid that isn't viable.

    I can see where that might be the impression HK enthusiasts on these boards get given my age and relative lack of activity here despite my account's age. I do assure you, however, given my first time firing a pistol was a v3 P30L in 9mm, and my knowledge of HK's reputation and deserve price markup compared to other domestic and international firearms manufacturers that are less upper-echelon in their build quality than the more seminal HK designs, I am a fan. I wouldn't be here despite the flak one gets online and in person for being pro-gun, anticipating being a gun owner and collector in adult life with serious considerations made about it, and, well, the zeitgeist in the United States of using the idiom "Beware the quiet ones" about most people of my particular degree of introversion, as a rule rather than its exception. Especially in part due to events in U.S. history during the better part of 18 years that I know of in our recent contemporary incidents, which in frequency and ubiquity have made distrusting those who are not your friends or family quite socially acceptable.

    This is all to say, despite objections to what may seem to be me trolling here, I assure you this is not the case. I wouldn't confide in an HK themed message board's community for help fining affordable HK style long guns, rifles and pistol-caliber carbines chiefly, of course, in the relative short term that is finding a job and steady tenancy outside of my home first, then working on things of real monetary and, often, sentimental value.
