Well turned 18 and got my first shotgun for my birthday from the parental unit.

Mossberg 500 18" and 28" combo
Everything is stock lol. No money = no cool accesories

with my S&W rifle I bought a few months ago. The start of a collection!

Very nice. I remember the days of getting my first guns. You have started out well. I noticed you might be into the whole black rifle and tactical look. Don't underestimate a good lever action in say 30-30. Just a little knowledge for you to think about. Congrats on your purchases and be safe.

Don't underestimate a good lever action in say 30-30.

+1 lever guns... the original 'assault weapon'. And if you do look for one, don't limit yourself to .30-30. A pistol caliber lever (.357, .41, .44 Mag, or .45 Colt) teamed with a handgun in the same caliber adds versatility.

Thanks guys, this will probably be my last gun purchase for a few years because I'm working my *** off to get into the Naval Academy where I won't have as much access to personal firearms as I'd like.

I do like black rifles, but I love "less modern", if that is the word, looking guns. I have a list of many to own before I die. I'll probably end up buying a wooden stock and forend for this shotgun in the near future. Just trying to stick with the fun yet cheap to shoot calibers for now.

Couldn't agree more on lever action rifles being awesome.
